KUALA LUMPUR – Police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) have been asked to investigate the spreading of intimate photographs of individuals resembling DAP’s Zairil Khir Johari and Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud on social media.
UMNO grassroots movement Malaysia (Gaum) chairperson Datuk Zulkarnain Mahdar said the investigation should be conducted to find the real culprit and to clear the Barisan Nasional (BN) and UMNO that had been implicated and accused of spreading the images with the intention to discredit the two involved.
“I am very sure that it is not from UMNO or BN (to spread the pictures). In the general election we fight against DAP using facts.
“Maybe the enemies of Zairil (Member of Parliament for Bukit Bendera) who did this, who know, so we want the police and MCMC to investigate,” he said after lodging a police report over the spreading of the photographs at the Sri Petaling police station here today.
He said both Dyana Sofya (former DAP candidate in Teluk Intan by-election) and Zairil should come forward as everybody wanted to know the truth whether the images were fake or otherwise.
“Zairil should come forward to lodge a police report, and I personally agree with Dyana Sofya that the dissemination of the pictures was a violation of individual rights and should not happen.
“If the images are not fake, admit it and get married, so we can close this controversy and UMNO shouldn’t continue to be blamed in this issue,” he said.
A few days ago, some intimate pictures allegedly of Dyana and Zairil had gone viral on social media.
This is the third time where intimate images and video associated with DAP’s Malay leaders went viral, however, no admission had been made by either of them yet. – BERNAMA
