With Yogyakarta still dealing with the effects of Florence Sihombing's rant on social media website Path, Bandung Mayor Ridwan Kamil says he will file a police report against the Twitter account @kemalsept for similar reasons.
Offensive comments aimed at the city and mayor can be found on the account. One comment, for example, states that the city is 'full of prostitutes'.
The account also mocked the mayor by associating him with an ape.
Further, the account accused the mayor of having sexual intercourse with Ariel, a rock singer who once served time in prison.
'@kemalsept, I've officially reported you to the police because of your insulting tweets,' Ridwan said on Friday via his Twitter account, @ridwankamil, as quoted by kompas.com.
Ridwan accused the account owner of violating the Electronic Information and Transaction Law (ITE Law) and the Criminal Code, and said the individual should serve up to six years in prison if proven guilty.
The identity of the Twitter user in question remains unknown. (alz/dic)
