KUALA LUMPUR: The Deputy Minister’s former aide who allegedly took up skirt footage of a woman whilst she performed an eye exam on his boss has been arrested.
Sentul OCPD Asst Comm R. Munusamy confirmed the arrest.
It is known that the arrest was made around 1pm on Monday (Sept 10), near the Solaris area here.
Earlier, City police chief Comm Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim had said that the case was being investigated under Section 509 of the Penal Code for insulting the modesty of a person.
He also advised the public to not share the video footage, as the case was still under police investigations.
The police today confirmed having received a report on a man caught upskirting an optician using a handphone.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Mazlan Lazim said the case was being investigated under Section 509 of the Penal Code for insulting the modesty of a person and Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act for insulting behaviour.
“The police wish to advise the public to not viral the video on this case because the case is still under investigation,” he said in a statement today.
Mazlan also said those with information that could assist the police investigation should contact senior investigating officer ASP Azrizal Khairul Abd Kadir at 019-2769117 or call the Sentul police station at 03-40482233.
KUALA LUMPUR: An aide to a federal deputy minister is the subject of a sexual harassment complaint by an optician, who said he had secretly recorded a video of her underskirt when she was busy conducting an eye test on his boss.
According to a police report sighted by FMT, the optician was treating Deputy Home Minister Azis Jamman at an outlet in a Kuala Lumpur mall yesterday, when she noticed that a man, who was seated behind her, was holding up his mobile phone under her skirt.
A CCTV recording of the incident showed the man placing his phone strategically near the optician’s skirt as she was checking Azis’s eyesight.
“When I turned to face the screen beside me, I noticed a man recording something on a mobile phone. After viewing the CCTV recording, I discovered that the man had recorded a video from below my skirt,” the optician said in her police report.
When contacted, the police station where the report was filed denied there was such a complaint.
However, Azis confirmed the incident to FMT, adding that the officer had since been sacked.
“I cannot tolerate such behaviour. I am so shocked to see that video,” he said.
He said he had gone to the optician accompanied by his wife and aide.
On his request, Azis said his aide followed him to the consultation room.
“I brought my aide just in case because I did not want to be alone with another woman. I wanted my aide to be a witness, that is all,” he said.
But his “witness” was up to no good, and Azis said he confronted him later after viewing the CCTV recording.
“I have sacked him with immediate effect,” he added.
