MIRI: A po­lice re­port was lodged yes­ter­day against a Face­book user over a racially- charged post.

The po­lice re­port was made by po­lit­i­cal sec­re­tary to the chief min­is­ter, Charles Balan Sel­ing at Miri Cen­tral po­lice sta­tion af­ter he was alerted about the of­fen­sive post.

He said the post could in­cite hos­til­ity among the races and dis­rupt the strong and friendly ties shared by Sarawakians.

“The state­ment is ir­re­spon­si­ble, in­sen­si­tive, im­moral and con­trary to the friendly na­ture of Sarawakians who up­hold strong fam­ily spirit,” said Charles.

The Face­book user in ques­tion made the of­fen­sive com­ment when shar­ing a post by PKR Baram chair­man Roland En­gan, which stated that ru­ral res­i­dents of Long Be­dian in Apoh, Baram had voiced their hope for all par­ties in­volved in mat­ters con­cern­ing na­tive cus­tom­ary rights ( NCR) land in Long Be­dian to sit down and ne­go­ti­ate.
