KUALA LUMPUR – More than 1,000 people suspected of inciting trouble during the general election have been identified by Bukit Aman, said Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.
The Inspector-General of Police said some 1,100 potential troublemakers will be monitored.
“We will only take action if the need arises. They include those who will perform surprise last-minute attacks and who may drop so-called ‘bombshells’,” he told a press conference after launching the meeting for state police chiefs, commissioners and commandants on Thursday.
Among the potential fake news that might be spread during the elections are the existence of phantom voters and supposed Islamic State attacks, added the IGP.
Mohamad Fuzi said more than 100 hotspots during the coming polls have also been identified. – The Star Online
