Man Arrested After Mocking Former Malaysian King on Facebook

Malaysian police confirmed today that they have arrested a man, and plans to charge him with sedition, for creating a Facebook page, which was aimed at mocking the country’s former king.

According to authorities, the suspect created a Facebook page on which he criticized Sultan Iskandar Ismail, a state ruler for five years in the 1980’s. Sultan Iskandar died at the age of 77 in January.

If convicted on a charge of sedition, the suspect may face a sentence of 3 years in prison.

Authorities stated that they started their investigation into the Facebook page in August after receiving a number of public complaints.
