Sarawak police have requested the administrator of a Facebook account, Sarawak Update to come foward to assist them over a recent posting.

State Criminal Investigation Department chief Dev Kumar said a police report was lodged by an individual at Mukah Police Station at 5.40pm yesterday for a posting by Sarawak Update allegedly insulting a Sarawak minister and contained a racial slur.

“Sarawak police have commenced investigations on this posting by Sarawak Update under the Penal Code and Communications and Multimedia Act.

“It is unclear at the moment who among the Sarawak Update administrators uploaded that status but from the comments by followers of the page, it is clear that the posting has drawn the ire of many,” he said in a statement.

He said alternatively, the person who uploaded that status should own up and come forward to assist in the police investigation.
