Malaysian police trying to identify owners of seditious FB pages

KOTA KINABALU - No arrests have been made in connection with seditious Facebook pages as police continue to try to identify the owners of Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia and Semenanjung Anti Sabah Sarawak.

Sabah CID chief Senior Asst Comm Salehudin Abdul Rahman said police were working with the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission to identify the administrators of the pages.

"We are calling on anyone with information on activities related to the Facebook pages to come forward and assist the special task force investigate the sedition," he told reporters here.

The Sabah Sarawak keluar Malaysia page is believed to be operated by a Sabahan going by the name of Doris Jones from the United Kingdom.

Earlier, SAC Salehuddin said two men aged 33 and 41 were arrested while trying to steal a car at Asia City in the heart of the state capital at about 5pm on Tuesday.

The men, who tested positive for drugs, are believed to be behind vehicle thefts in Keningau and around the city.

"Police are still trying to determine whether others were involved in these thefts," Salehuddin said.

A motorcycle and fake road tax sticker were seized from the two men.

In Pitas, police arrested a 24-year-old man over the murder of a 36-year-old man who was found blood soaked with gunshot wounds at Kampung Rangal on Monday.

SAC Salehuddin said police were also looking for a 32-year-old estate worker in Kinabatangan to help them investigate the murder of his colleague.

The 21-year-old victim was found with slash wounds on the body near the workers quarters on Monday.
