He stated all three have been remanded for 3 days from at this time (January 30) below Part 384 of the Penal Code, Part 17(a) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Fee Act 2009 and Part 233 of the Multimedia and Communications Act 1988.
There is a UK couple doing a van tour world wide. They’re in Malaysia now.

He added that the investigation papers have been taken over by Bukit Aman’s labeled crime investigation unit (USJT) and can be referred to the deputy public prosecutor as soon as investigations are accomplished. Moreover, an inner investigation might be carried out by Bukit Aman’s integrity and requirements compliance division.
In a video clip that went viral on-line, Chris and Marianne Fisher – generally known as the travelling husband-and-wife duo Tread the Globe – had been proven being stopped by a visitors policeman for allegedly rushing downhill of their campervan alongside Jalan Simpang Pulai-Cameron Highlands, supposedly travelling at a pace of 80 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.
The officer then advised the driving force that that they had the choice to pay the RM300 for the summons he had issued at a police station, or alternatively pay RM100 on the spot.
