MCMC records Aliff Syukri’s statement over indecent Hari Raya video 

CYBERJAYA, April 3 — The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), in cooperation with the Royal Malaysia Police, recorded the statement from businessman Datuk Seri Aliff Syukri Kamarzaman at the MCMC headquarters today.

MCMC said the statement from the businessman was recorded following complaints regarding the content of the latter’s controversial Aidilfitri video clip, which was uploaded to his social media account recently.

“The video clip uploaded on his social media platform is seen as an offensive content that may violate provisions under the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

“This includes Section 233 of the act, which prohibits making and transmitting communication which is obscene, indecent or false, with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass another person,” it said in a statement.

It also said that investigation is currently being conducted under Section 233, and if found guilty, the individual may be fined up to RM50,000, or a maximum imprisonment of one year, or both.

“Once the investigation paper is ready, it will be submitted to the Attorney-General for further action,” it said.

MCMC added that investigating officers have seized a sim card believed to belong to the suspect and a mobile phone used to upload the video clip, to assist in the investigation.
