The publication of comments or statements defaming the President on Social Media or any other media is strictly prohibited, said Police Spokesman SSP Nihal Thalduwa.
The Police Spokesman added that sharing such statements made by other people on Social Media is also a punishable offense.
He added that anyone sharing or making such defamatory comments against the President will be subjugated to legal actions.
A woman was recently taken to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for questioning for allegedly posting defamatory remarks about the President on Social Media. The woman, however, responded that the Police had obtained a statement from her regarding the sharing of a post posted to Facebook by someone else.
