KUALA LUMPUR — April 12, 2020: Police have recorded a statement from Kuantan member of parliament Fuziah Salleh over a video of a fake news that she posted on her Facebook account.

“We were alerted after a Facebook user with the username Fuziah Salleh uploaded a video claiming there was a flood of Malaysians at the Bangunan Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex in Johor Baru.

“The Johor Immigration Department director denied the incident and lodged a report on the matter,” federal CID director Datuk Huzir Mohamed said in a statement today.

“We took her statement on Friday and seized the gadget she used to upload the post,” he said.

Police also arrested on Saturday a 48-year-old woman for allegedly making seditious and racially-charged posts at Facebook.

The woman is also being investigated for misuse of network facilities.
