Woman detained for allegedly distributing sex DVD

Friday January 4, 2008

JOHOR BARU: A 29-year-old woman has been detained for allegedly distributing the sex DVD involving former Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

Johor Police Chief Deputy Comm Datuk Hussin Ismail said the beauty salon owner was arrested near her shop in Taman Bukit Perdana, Batu Pahat, at 2.30pm on Thursday.

He explained that police also seized one DVD and three VCDs of the banned material and a laptop during the arrest.

"We believe this is not the woman in the video.

"She will be remanded today," he told pressmen on Friday after launching the rank presentation ceremony to some 600 police personnel at the police headquarters here.

DCP Hussin also confirmed that police had recorded Dr Chua's statement but decline to elaborate further.

"We have not recorded statements from others.

"The investigation is still ongoing," he said.

DCP Hussin explained that a Bukit Aman Forensics Unit was assisting state police with investigations in Batu Pahat.

He said the case was being investigated under Section 292 of the Penal Code for distributing and possessing material containing pornographic elements.

When asked whether the hotel workers had a hand in the sex video, DCP Hussin said he did not want to speculate.

"We will explore all angles in the investigations.

"One angle is identifying who was involved in the DVD," he said, urging those who had obtained the DVDs to surrender the copies to the police or destroy them.

"It is an offence to keep such a DVD including transferring the video to a computer," he said.
