Malaysian satirical artist Fahmi Reza visits Bukit Aman again for his controversial works.

This time, he posted an image of Mojo Jojo, a villainous character from the children’s show Powerpuff Girls, in a royal yellow outfit that resembles the outfit worn by the Sultan.

According to Malaysiakini, the artist released a statement three hours after the photo was uploaded to explain the latest artwork.

He said those who can accept satirical works that equate others to a monkey should be able to accept it if the same was said of them.

Although he did not list names, it is believed he was responding to news of the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah buying a painting which depicts the MPs as monkeys, monkeys and frogs.

The next day, Fahmi posted another tweet to tell his followers that he had been called by the police within 15 hours.

He was asked to be present at the police station today, April 14, to assist in an investigation under the Sedition Act 1948.

I received a phone call from Bukit Aman. It’s not even been 3pm but the police have opened #AktaHasutan (Sedition Act) and #AktaSakitHati investigation papers for my graphic satire of a #monkey that I posted last night. The police asked me to come for questioning tonight. See you soon PDRM.

According to Malay Mail, #AktaSakitHati is Fahmi’s way of referring to Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act, under which he was previously charged with posting messages of a similar nature.
