Infamous Malaysian sex bloggers plead not guilty to sedition charge in relation to their posting which mocks Ramadhan and Islam.


KUALA LUMPUR, July 18 (Bernama) -- Controversial couple Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee today pleaded not guilty at the Sessions Court here to three charges related to their action in posting their Ramadan bak kut teh greeting on their Facebook page and pornographic pictures in their blogs.

The charges against Alvin Tan or his full name, Tan Jye Yee, 25, and Vivian Lee or Lee May Ling, 24, were read before judge Murtazadi Amran.

In the first charge, they were jointly accused of making a seditious posting on "Alvin and Vivian - Alvivi" Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/alvivi.swingers) by uploading a photo of themselves eating bak kut teh (a pork dish) with the greeting 'Selamat Berbuka Puasa with bak kut teh ...fragrant, delicious and appetising' together with the 'halal' logo.

They allegedly committed the offence at 10.48pm between July 11 and 12 at 568-14-18, Kompleks Mutiara Jalan Ipoh, Mile 3 1/2 here.

They were charged under subsection 4 (1) (c) of the Sedition Act 1948 which is punishable under subsection 4 (1) of the same Act and read together with Section 34 of the Code Penal.

For the first offence, they face a fine up to RM5,000, an imprisonment up to three years or both, and imprisonment up to five years for subsequent offence.

Just throw these 2 ****s into a jail cell already. I'm not even Muslim and I can't stand the disrespect they've brought to this nation. I wonder how Muslims feel about these 2 uneducated t**ts.

If the court finds them guilty  , jail them. Am a Malaysian Chinese but  I DON"T  tolerate such disrespect shown by the two. Am going to create their profiles and make sure my company or companies that I know don't employ them. 
Don't forget Ibrahim Ali and the other animal trying to incite hatred among peace loving Malaysians. Ibrahim Ali don't have to share " bah kut teh " with them to be guilty.

Yes, these immature daring youngsters must be punished. The gov must be fair to all, don't practice double-standard. Those mature, elder politicians, supposed to be well-educated, like Ibrahim Ali, ex-judge, etc. who knowingly and purposely created national insults and immoralty on the rakyat, must also be punished. By taking action ONLY on Alvivi (who deserved it), but leaving these stupid politicians free, the gov only acceralate more hatred in the hearts of the younger generation, tempting them to be more rebellious! When the gov practice double standards, how can the younger generation be convinced that the country is democratic. Simple,  suppose, say, when a child sees that a senior politician urinates in KL shoplot, the tendency is that he WILL do the same when he is in urgent need to urinate. The elder will lead the young, and the young will learn from the elder.

This is a big issue only because they are locals and can be prosecuted.

 

OK agreed the pair are not normal and ignorant.

 

Other than that surely all of us know there are much worst things being said and written elsewhere.

Surprise that this time around there is no smart-@ss politician who threaten to close down facebook, like how someone some years ago wanted to close down youtube.

How typical of these people breaking the sentiment of the muslims. Pretend to not know or not knowing about the law is no excuse. Penalise them to the fullest for example strip off their citizenship.

Orang gila macam ni should be punished to the maximum so that others will follow his  stupid behaviour.
