KUALA LUMPUR, June 25, 2015:
Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek said website containing photographs of children used as pornographic material will be shut down.
The Communication and Multimedia Minister said this in response to an incident involving local celebrity Harith Iskander, who yesterday discovered his pictures and that of his son as well as other children were uploaded on a pornographic website.
Ahmad Shabery also said the case was currently being investigated.
“We will block the website and find its source in order to take further action. We are gathering information at the moment,” he said after launching the Digi Empower Societies here today.
Yesterday it was reported that Harith discovered the local pornographic website after he was notified by Google Alerts.
He has since lodged a report with the police as well as the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission.
