Malaysian United Party leader lodges police report over cyberbullying

GEORGE TOWN: The general secretary of a newly formed political party has lodged a police report against what it said was cyber-bullying.
The Malaysian United Party’s Kee Lean Ee said a DAP supporters’ Facebook page implied she was a “dog”, “slave” and “prostitute”, in a post referring to a news portal’s interview with her.
Party deputy president Dennis Koay Xing Boon, who was also interviewed by the portal, was accused of being a “robber”.
“We may have freedom of speech, but this is cyber-bullying. I hope that netizens and political party supporters will watch what they comment online,” she said.
“I also urge people to visit the Malaysian United Party’s Facebook page to learn more about us before making any slanderous remarks against the party or any individuals,” she said after lodging a report at the Patani Road police station here on Wednesday.
Kee also said that in the interview with the news portal on Sept 19, she only introduced the party, its aims and direction.
Malaysian United Party women’s affairs bureau chairman Tan Sim Bee, who is also a lawyer, said they will also be lodging a report with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) as advised by the police.
She also urged DAP to advise its supporters not to be rude and crude while making comments on social media.
“They can comment and criticise us, but not call us names,” she said.
The Malaysian United Party was established and obtained approval from the Registrar of Societies (RoS) last December, but was officially launched this July.
