PKR Deputy Youth chief Muhammad Kamil Abdul Munim confirmed today that a police report was lodged against a man who made death threats against Prime Minister (PM) Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in a post on social media.
The report was filed at the Putrajaya Police Headquarters at 1.43pm.
“Earlier, the wing representative went to the Putrajaya District Police Headquarters to file a police report regarding a TikTok video where the user ‘jaiadani89’ issued threats against the PM, offering a reward of RM5 mil to anyone who can assassinate the PM.
“There were many threatening comments that not only jeopardised the safety of the prime minister but also touched on sensitive issues related to race and religion,” he said.
The user removed the video after complaining that many followers were ‘angry’ about his post.

Some X users responded that the party should have a special unit to tackle this problem with the number of online threats made against the PM and his ministers lately.
Netizen @DanialAHFMD writing to the party @KEADILAN:
@KEADILAN You guys should get yourselves 24/7 lawyers and also utilise some people to scrape the entire internet for certain keywords, once thats done have the lawyers review it and sned a report to the relevant authorities.

Ramai sangat yang darah panas macam ni. Polis dah banyak pengalaman dengan orang macam ni. Kutip kejap je bawak masuk balai. Kita tengok apa depa buat nak ajar sikit camne nak jadi rakyat berhemah. Tak suke siapa jadi PM Polis tak kisah. Tapi kalau sibuk nak ancam..lain citer

(Many are hot-headed like this. The police have a lot of experience with people like this. Just pick them up and bring them to the station for a while. Let’s see what they do to teach them how to be civilised citizens. It doesn’t matter who becomes the PM; the police don’t care. But if they’re busy making threats, that’s a different story.) – Nov 26, 2023
