KUANTAN – Ten non-governmental organisations today lodged a police report against those who have opened a false Facebook account in the name of Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.
The NGOs, which included the Pahang Umno Liaison Committee; Federation of Peninsula Malay Students (GPMS); Kuantan GPMS; Paya Besar GPMS and Pahang Youth Council, lodged the report at the Kuantan Police headquarters here.
They claimed that irresponsible people had used the name ‘Dato Sri Diraja Adnan Yaakob’ to open the FB account allegedly to tarnish the good name and image of the menteri besar.
Pahang Umno assistant media officer Amir Rozaini Ahmad Rani said the FB account was a false one that was opened in 2012 and it had become active lately in making provocative statements.
Pahang GPMS chairman Wan Emril Nizam Wan Embong said the report urged the police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to investigate the matter and act against those involved.
“We also want the FB account to be closed so that it will not raise confusion among the people,” he said. – BERNAMA
