The Home Ministry today dismissed as untrue a social media message stating it had issued new regulations governing telephone and social media communication.

Ministry secretary-general Alwi Ibrahim said the recycled message on social media was not issued by the ministry and had nothing to do with it.

“The people are advised to exercise caution with regards to such false messages that go viral,” he said in a statement today.

The message had stated that all telephone calls were being recorded, all social media and forums were being monitored and communication devices were linked to the ministry system. – Bernama
