An #UndiRosak Activist Has Lodged Police Report Over Threats Issued By PH Supporters
Activist Maryam Lee, who has been championing a campaign called #UndiRosak, supporters of which deliberately want to spoil their votes during the upcoming 14th General Election (GE14), has now filed a police complaint against Pakatan Harapan (PH) supporters
She lodged the police report over the barrage of sexual harassment and physical threats she received on social media following her involvement at a forum on the #UndiRosak campaign last month
In her report lodged at the Hulu Kelang police station this morning, Maryam said that she was cyberbullied by Pakatan Harapan (PH) supporters.
"I am a Malaysian citizen who merely expressed her opinions in a forum, but I was threatened and humiliated by members of the public in an attempt to suppress my right to free speech. I feel that my safety is under threat," Maryam was reported as saying by The Malay Mail Online on Sunday, 11 February.
She said that the members of the public who do not agree with the views she raised during the #UndiRosak forum issued serious threats against her that were of both sexual and physical nature
Last month, Maryam had shared a post that had compiled the threating comments that were made under a video recording of her advocating the #UndiRosak campaign was uploaded on the Malaysian Gags Facebook page.
In her post, Maryam had written that she was accused of being "paid by BN".
She had blamed Pakatan Harapan supporters for the attacks.
Speaking about the police report, Maryam said police only wants to investigate the physical/death threats as "cyberbullying and online sexual harassment don't qualify for criminal investigation"
