DON’T BELIEVE IN RUMOURS


Kuala Kangsar: Rumours on the flood situation in the country being spread on social media are unreliable and the people should not believe them.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said unverified information was being spread rapidly on social media.

"Spreading rumours through social media is an irresponsible act. This unconfirmed information will only cause nervousness and anxiety among the people." he said after visiting flooded areas yesterday.

Najib said he hoped the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) would track down these rumour-mongers.

"Action should be taken against them for disrupting public safety.'' he added.

He urged the people not to trust such information except that provided by the Government as well as verified information from news platforms.
