KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 18 – Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said an investigation paper has been opened on rapper Namewee’s video clip which allegedly rode roughshod on the sensitivities of the multi-racial society in the country.
He said the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) was working with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission to investigate the controversial video clip under Section 298 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
He said this after launching the Police Heritage Trust Fund Appeal Motorcycling Tour Programme in conjunction with the 211th Police Day at the Police Training Centre today. Last week, Namawee uploaded his latest video clip for Chinese New Year titled ‘Like A Dog’ featuring a group of individuals wearing a dog mask allegedly containing vulgar dance moves near the Putra Perdana Building which houses the Prime Minister’s Office in Putrajaya.
The three-day motorcycle trip involves a 1,103km journey with more than 50 officers and personnel on high-powered motorcycles from Pulapol to Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Pahang, Perak and Negri Sembilan. “This is a PDRM initiative in raising funds to help retirees and their family members,” he said. — Bernama
