Kuala Lumpur, May 21,2012. – The emergence of a fake facebook account of top cop Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Mohd Zinin has received a rebuke from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) director.

Mohd Bakri in a statement clarified that he did not have a facebook account either in his personal capacity or as the director of the CID.

“It has come to my attention that an unscrupulous individual has created a fake facebook account in my name and posting fake statuses,” he said in the statement posted on the Royal Malaysia Police facebook site.

Checks on the social network uncovered a facebook account impersonation of Mohd Bakri Mohd Zinin which used rude connotations on the profile information and on the wall with intention to tarnish the police’s image.

Mohd Bakri in the statement reminded the public that anyone who created a fake facebook profile to impersonate someone else and caused annoyance could face action for improper use of network facilities or services under the Communications and Multimedia Commission Act 1998. – Bernama
