KUALA BERANG, June 9 — Do not share any unverified information on social media on political issues in Terengganu, advised state police chief Datuk Rohaimi Md Isa.
He said stern action would be taken against those found disseminating false information or news that could disrupt public order.
“My advice to the Terengganu people, whether they are in the state or outside the state, to not spread or disseminate sensitive issues, such as on the state politics, that are not verified.
“Currently, the situation in Terengganu is calm and there is no information from our close or reliable source that what has gone viral on the social media is happening,” he told reporters during an inspection at a roadblock in Hulu Terengganu today.
He was responding to a report by a news portal which stated that the position of Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar is reported in a critical situation.
Yesterday, a police report was lodged by the Terengganu Mentri Besar’s political secretary, Muhyiddin Abdul Rashid on the report by the news portal, claiming that it was defamatory, malicious and intended to tarnish the credibility of Ahmad Samsuri’s leadership. — Bernama
