MO,14/2/2018, KUALA LUMPUR: The investigation into the sex video that supposedly depicts national shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei is underway. Federal Commercial Crimes Investigation Department (CCID) director Comm Datuk Seri Amar Singh said that his department would be handling the investigation.

“We are investigating the case for defamation under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for improper use of network facilities,” he told a press conference at his department’s headquarters here on Wednesday (Feb 14). He added that the police have recorded Lee’s statement.

On Tuesday Lee lodged a report at the CCID headquarters regarding the viral video, and he has vehemently denied being the person in the video. “It’s not me. My movie is coming out and some people are trying to bring my name into disrepute,” he said.

Chong Wei to lodge police report over claims viral sex video is of him


DLCW

MO,13/2/2018, KUALA LUMPUR: “It is not me.” This was Datuk Lee Chong Wei’s short but simple response to allegations of being caught on camera in a viral sex video with an unknown woman. The national men’s singles star when contacted said this could be the modus operandi of certain quarters who want to see him fail, especially when the shuttler is on the brink of premiering his biopic “Lee Chong Wei: Rise of the Legend” next month.

“This is ridiculous, take one look at the video and you know it’s not me,” said Lee, who first saw the video on Monday. “So many people have been calling to confirm if it was me, and I had to laugh it off. Initially I had no plans of acting on it, because really it’s just a waste of time. “However, it is getting out of hand, and I will be lodging a police report at (Federal police headquarters in) Bukit Aman today.”

Lee added that he is so used to being the subject of such accusations, that it is sometimes not funny. “There will always be people who are not happy with your success, and this is how they try to bring you down. I am not bothered, but sometimes it does get to you.” On a separate note, Lee also commented on the recent match fixing scandal, which allegedly involves two professional shuttlers.

“All I can say is it’s a huge disgrace to our country and the sport. They may not be BAM (BA of Malaysia) players, but they still carry the Jalur Gemilang on their chest when they play. “As a top player, I think I can comment on this, and I am ashamed. I hope the matter will be resolved soon and for BAM to also take stern action against those involved.”

It was reported that Adelina was rescued by police on Saturday following suspected repeated abuse by her employers. She died at 4.45pm on Sunday while being treated at the Bukit Mertajam Hospital.

When found at her employer’s home at Taman Kota Permai, she had severe injuries on her head and face, and infected wounds on her hands and legs. Her plight came to light after a police report was lodged by an aide to the Bukit Mertajam member of parliament. The case, which was initially investigated under Section 324 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt, will not be investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.

maz_

MO,8/2/2018, SHAH ALAM: Police have given two individuals 24 hours to meet the police and present their statement over claims by actor Datuk Farid Kamil that his drink was spiked. The two individuals are known as Firdaus, an R&B singer who was prominent in the 1990s, and actor Ahmad Tajudin, both in their 40s. Selangor police chief Datuk Mazlan Mansor said the police had already contacted them but the men have failed to come forward to have their statement recorded.

“We have already contacted them. One of them is in Johor while the whereabouts of the other remains unknown. “If no cooperation is given to help the investigation, police will take action by revealing their photos,” he told a press conference at the Kuala Lumpur police contingent headquarters (IPK). Meanwhile, local actor Sofi Jikan, known for his role in the hit movie ‘KL Gangster’, has been remanded after testing positive for cannabis soon after giving his statement to the police.

Sofi, 48, was arrested at the Mutiara Damansara police station at 11pm yesterday. The actor was one of the three individuals who was asked to meet the police over a report lodged by Farid. Sofi was issued a remand order until Friday by senior deputy registrar Hairol Azhar Mohd Ishak at the Petaling Jaya magistrate’s court. Farid Kamil was arrested for allegedly attacking a policeman and a civilian at the Kota Damansara station on Jan 11.

Five days later, he was charged at the Petaling Jaya magistrate’s court with two counts of voluntarily causing hurt, and one count each for disorderly conduct and obstructing a public servant from carrying out his duty. The court granted him RM12,000 bail with one surety for all the charges. On Jan 25, he was again charged at the magistrate’s court with consuming cannabis, and was allowed bail at RM4,000.

He later claimed that three fellow artistes had spiked his drink, and this resulted in his outburst at a police station last month. He claimed that he was also given a cigarette laced with an unknown type of oil.

Police: Only 10 pc of 29,526 traffic summonses in KL paid


zulkefly07.jpg_1517994665

MO,7/2/2018, KUALA LUMPUR: Motorists have paid up only 3,035 out of the 29,526 traffic summonses issued in the city, said Kuala Lumpur Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Department (TEID) today. City TEID chief ACP Zulkefly Yahya said the summonses were paid between Jan 1 and Feb 3 this year. He also said some motorists paid up their summonses on Feb 3 via a kiosk at a shopping mall in Cheras, which offered a 30 per cent discount.

The kiosk, he said, received positive feedback from the public, adding that it collected a total of RM20,650 that day. “The feedback from the public was positive but there are still some people who have not paid despite us opening the discount kiosk,” he said. Zulkefly said the kiosk was meant to make it more convenient for traffic offenders to settle their summonses.

“The awareness among traffic offenders is still low as there are 7,166 warrants of arrest still outstanding.” He said many of the summonses were issued due to the motorists’ failure to produce their driving licenses or road tax insurance. “To prevent the number of summonses from increasing, traffic offenders with outstanding summonses and warrants will be tracked down through Ops Warta,” said Zulkefly.

Actor Farid Kamil lodges police report over incident that led to arrest


FARID KAMIL ZAHARI / MAHKAMAH MAJISTRET PETALING JAYA

MO,1/2/2018, SHAH ALAM: Actor and director Datuk Farid Kamil has once again appeared on the police’s radar after lodging a new police report. “I can confirm that he made a report on Wednesday (Jan 31) in relation to the incident that led to his arrest. He wrote about a lot of things in the report and we are currently investigating them,” said Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat. He said this after a handing over of duties ceremony between outgoing Shah Alam OCPD SAC Shafien Mamat and incoming OCPD Asst Comm Baharudin Mat Taib.

SAC Fadzil said that Farid should have gone through a lawyer before making the report as his case was still under investigation. “It could be seen as sub-judice as the case is still being heard in court,” said SAC Fadzil, adding that Farid would be called in to give his statement soon. Farid was arrested for allegedly attacking a police officer and a civilian at the Kota Damansara traffic police station on Jan 11.

He claimed trial to the assault charge on Jan 16. The actor was then charged on Jan 25 with self administering THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), one of the active components in ganja, into his body. He also pleaded not guilty to the drug charge.
