Malaysian sex blog couple told to surrender
PETALING JAYA – Malaysia’s Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar has asked a pair of controversial sex bloggers to surrender themselves to the Kuala Lumpur police.
Mr Khalid said the police wanted to investigate Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee for causing disharmony, disunity and hatred on grounds of religion, which means they can be arrested, the Malaysian Insider reported.
Last Thursday, Mr Tan and Ms Lee uploaded on their Facebook page a picture depicting them eating bak kut teh, or pork rib soup, and describing it as fragrant, delicious and appetising, with a Selamat Berbuka Puasa (Happy Breaking Fast) greeting.
They could be prosecuted for displaying offensive pictures and words under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act.
The offence is punishable with a fine of up to RM50,000 (S$19,714) or a one-year prison term, or both.
