Malaysian authorities investigating 'Isis Malaysia 69' video

PETALING JAYA: Bukit Aman is investigating a video which depicted four masked men issuing a warning that they would "blow up fireworks" at a courthouse on Wednesday to symbolise their mistrust in the judicial system.

Federal Commercial CID director Comm Datuk Seri Mortadza Nazarene said the police have begun a probe into the video, supposedly to be an Islamic State-style terror threat.

"We are aware of the video and we are taking it seriously," he said when contacted on Monday.

The Star is trying to get comments from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

The clip went viral a week after Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was found guilty of sodomising his former aide and sentenced to five years in jail by the Federal Court.

In the one-minute-long video that was uploaded to one "Isis Malaysia 69" YouTube account on Sunday, one of the four men declared that their action signalled the beginning of their protest on the breakdown of democracy.

Another person was also seen brandishing a Molotov cocktail with petrol bombs placed on the table in front of them and a Malaysian flag hung in the background.

The group also used a picture of actress Nora Danish in their video. Nora was quoted as saying that she was shocked to learn that she "is being used."
