There are currently no specific
cyber harassment offences in Malaysia.

Tell them cyber harassment is #TakFunny
Currently, Malaysia has no legal definition
of cyber harassment. It generally refers
to harassment through online interactions.
Cyber harassers often leave victims feeling violated, threatened and isolated.
And yet, there is
currently no law regulating cyber harassment.
It is #TakFunny
and sometimes, sorry
is simply not enough.
