Sepanggar Umno Youth and two non-governmental organisations have lodged a police report here on same-sex marriage involving two men in Tawau that went viral on social media.

Sepanggar Umno youth representative Shyazreen Asri, 26, said they made the report so that relevant authorities or department could investigate and take action because the Malaysian government had never recognised same-sex marriage.

“We are worried about the impact of the incident if it is not contained at the early stage.

“This issue has also angered various parties which can be seen from netizens’ comments on social media that they are against such marriage,” he said when met at the police station here.

It was learnt that the couple had made their nuptial vows in Kuala Lumpur.
