KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 16 – Local actress Nora Danish will lodge a police report over the use of her picture in threatening video uploaded on YouTube yesterday. Speaking to Harian Metro, 33-year-old Nora said she was initially unaware that her photograph was depicted in the one-minute video which featured four masked men, presumably Malaysian, vowing to protest against the country’s judiciary by “blowing up” courts across Malaysia this Wednesday night.
Nora who told the local daily that she received the information from a friend of hers, downplayed the situation by saying that the video did not implicate her in any way. “They didn’t mention my name and the contents of their statement do not have anything to do with me.
“I don’t want to comment further. What I can say is that I will be lodging a police report over it.” Earlier today, police discovered a YouTube video under an account named “Isis Malaysia 69″ that depicted a group of four masked men reading out a statement from the back of a piece of paper with a picture of Nora Danish.
The video, which had a background of the Malaysian flag and scattered bottles in the foreground stuffed with white material to look like Molotov cocktails (an explosive), featured the men warning the authorities of their plan to launch fireworks at courts across Malaysia on Feb 18. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar later issued a warning to those involved in the production of the video, saying that anyone who tried to disturb the country’s peace and harmony would face consequences.
