‘Sarawak Update’ Facebook page admins under investigation for offensive post

 Police are probing the administrators behind the Facebook page ‘Sarawak Update’ over an offensive post which not only appeared to target a state minister, but also contain a racial slur.

State CID chief Datuk Dev Kumar said a police report was made against the page at Mukah Police Station at 5.40pm today after it posted a status that appeared to be insulting a state minister and containing a slur against a particular race.

“It is unclear at the moment who among the Sarawak Update administrators uploaded that status. From the comments by followers of the page, it is clear that the posting has drawn the ire of many,” said Dev.

He went on to urge the administrators of Sarawak Update to provide the police with the identity of the person who uploaded the contentious status.

“Alternatively, the person who uploaded that status should own up and come forward to assist in the police investigation,” he said, adding that an investigation has commenced under the Penal Code as well as the Communications and Multimedia Act.
