Last Update: 06/03/2018

JOHOR BAHRU, March 6 (Bernama) -- Johor recorded 33 cases of trespass at prohibited areas from 2016 until yesterday, said Johor police chief Datuk Mohd Khalil Kader Mohd.

He said the cases included the recent one at Istana Bukit Serene here, as well as on several water treatment and power plants statewide.

"The Johor police view the matter seriously as the act of trespassing into the (compound of) prohibited areas is a grave offence and the authorities can take stern action against any individual or group involved," he said in a statement here today.

Mohd Khalil was commenting on the case of a 31-year-old man who allegedly attempted to trespass into Istana Bukit Serene here last Thursday, to steal the Sultan of Johor's Ferrari.

Any individual found to have committed the offence is punishable under the Protected Areas and Protected Places Act 1959 (Act 298), he said.

Meanwhile, Mohd Khalil said police had opened probe papers, under Section 500 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, over the publication of a fake news article deemed to have defamed Tunku Mahkota of Johor, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim recently.

The article, titled 'Johor Crown Prince Chides No Balls Malaysian Minister', was published by a Singapore online portal at but had been removed by the website's administrator, he said.

Mohd Khalil stressed that any website operator should have checked the authenticity of the news first before the articles were published.

At the same time, he also urged members of the public not to easily fall prey to news items on social media or websites without verifying the authenticity.
