PETALING JAYA: Businesswoman Ummi Hafilda Ali has lodged a police report against her brother Azwan Ali over a “death threat”.
Sources said Azwan purportedly posted the “threat” on her Twitter account on Friday.
A friend alerted her to the entry before she proceeded to lodge a report at the Taman Tun Dr Ismail police station.
The police will seek assistance from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission to ascertain the validity of the threat.
OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed receiving the report, adding that the case was being investigated under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation.
