Johor cops probe misuse of social media, allegedly involving TMJ
State police chief Comm Datuk Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd (pic) said the police received two reports on the misuse of Twitter and Facebook involving the prince on April 8 and April 10.
"The first report was in regards to a fake Twitter account under the name of DYAM Tunku Mahkota Johor, where his photo was edited and an image uploaded along with a sensitive statement against a political party.
"In the second report, DYAM Tunku Mahkota Johor's name was misused via a Facebook account to spread a statement criticising the country's leadership," he said in a statement here on Monday.
Comm Wan Ahmad said investigations confirmed that the offensive statements, which could affect the peace and harmony of the country, were never issued by the Tunku Ismail.
"We are investigating the matter under Section 419 of the Penal Code for lying and impersonating and we are working with the MCMC to trace the true owners of the accounts," he added.
