The public has been cautioned against making any false and malicious postings and statements, with regards to recent allegations made against the Prime Minister’s wife Rosmah Mansor.

In a statement today, the legal firm representing Rosmah said these false posts can cause public confusion and misrepresentation of facts.

“More specifically publications and postings with unverified sources and baseless contents framed and intended as an indirect hate and gutter political attacks,” lawyer Noor Hajran Mohd Noor said in the statement.

“The lawyers are closely monitoring all postings appearing in any social media platforms and other forms of publications in relation to false and malicious attacks on Rosmah,” she said.

Noor Hajran added that the statement issued is ‘served as a notice at large to whomsoever produces any false, malicious publications and/or postings in any form against’ Rosmah.

She remarked that those who commit such acts could face legal action without any further notice or references.

Yesterday, Rosmah reminded Malaysians not to believe deliberate slander to bring down a leader, an organisation or the country.

As reported by Bernama, Rosmah said social media has become the main weapon for perpertrators to spread their ‘wicked accusations’.

Speaking at an event to hand out Hari Raya goodies to the Malaysian Armed Forces in Kuala Lumpur, Rosmah said slander spread through social media could be seen as a form of ‘war’ that could threaten a country’s stability.
