The DPP said the aforementioned persons have published content that may incite feelings of contempt, hatred, hostility, violence or discrimination towards a certain ethnic group which is contrary to the constitution.
Haji has directed the Inspector General of Police to institute comprehensive investigations into the said publications and submit the resultant investigations file within 30 days.
