The government views seriously the dissemination of pornographic content such as child pornography on platforms such as Telegram as disclosed by a local news portal today and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has been instructed to work with Telegram to block such portals.
At the same time, MCMC will work with other enforcement agencies to identify parties who upload pornographic content for the appropriate legal and regulatory action to be taken against them.
Members of the public who have information about such activities are urged to come forward and share the details with MCMC to assist in and facilitate investigations.
Those with any information regarding the abuse of social media applications can direct their complaint to the MCMC Complaints Bureau through its hotline 1-800-188-030, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via Whatsapp to +6016 220 6262.
