According to the agency, Chegubard and Salim Iskandar would have their statements recorded at the MCMC Headquarters in Cyberjaya, while Papagomo would give his statement at the Setapak police station.

"This is  in response to complaints regarding upload of content suspected to be violating provisions under the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 [Act 588]," read the statement.

The case is being investigated under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, which provides for a maximum fine of RM50,000 or imprisonment for up to one year, or both, upon conviction.

MCMC has also urged the public not to misuse network and online application services to disseminate misleading or fake news.
