Police start probe on '200,000 new citizenship' claim

The owner of the fake Facebook and Twitter accounts under the name of 'TengkuRajaAlamShah' has been urged to come forward to facilitate the investigation into the allegations that 200,000 people have been granted new citizenship.
Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department D5 (prosecution and legal division) principal assistant director SAC Mior Faridalathrash Wahid (above) said a police report was lodged yesterday by National Registration Department director-general Ruslin Jusoh.
He said the case was being investigated under Section 500 of the Penal Code for defamation as well as under the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
“The statements made are found to be defamatory against the NRD director-general.

“Upon investigation, we found that the two accounts are fake and we are tracking down the suspect,” he told a press conference at Bukit Aman today.
On Saturday, the Home Ministry denied the allegations posted by the owner of Twitter account @TengkuRajaAlamShah claiming that 200,000 people have been granted new citizenship and pledged to repay the good deeds of the Pakatan Harapan government.
The Home Ministry said the allegations were false and asked the owner of the Twitter account to come forward to prove the validity of the claims.
