A Malaysian couple known for a sexually explicit blog were charged Thursday with sedition after they caused outrage by posting a Ramadan greeting on Facebook which showed them eating pork.
Alvin Tan, 25, and Vivian Lee, 24, pleaded not guilty to publishing or distributing a "seditious publication" and two other charges in a Kuala Lumpur district court in Muslim-majority Malaysia, a court official said.
They were denied bail and so will be jailed pending trial, she said. The next court date has been set for August 23.
