After posting disparaging remarks threatening the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s safety via an Instagram Story, a 35-year-old man was apprehended by the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM).
In a statement published to the Polis Selangor Facebook page, Selangor Police Chief, Datuk Arjunaidi, confirmed that the arrest transpired last night at the man’s residence in Kajang, at around 10.30 p.m.
This followed a police report that was received by PDRM from a Malaysian national in Ampang Jaya at 10.52 p.m. the night before. The man is currently under a 3-day remand order, which was set for 23-25 November.
As per reports, the man voiced displeasure with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s recent actions following the GE15 elections which resulted in a hung parliament. He also termed a particular race in the country as “corrupt.”
Additionally, the man urged individuals to oppose the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s jurisdiction by participating in a protest and explicitly prompted citizens to “stand up and kill them, for the sake of democracy.”
