Video Of Naked Woman Forced To Do 'Ear Squat' Creates Sensation
November 24, 2005 20:30 PM
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 24 (Bernama) -- A video clip showing a naked woman, believed to be a Chinese national, making an "ear squat" while being observed by a policewoman created a sensation at a news conference in Parliament House, Thursday.
The policewoman was wearing a "tudung" while a background voice recited verses from the Quran in the 30-second recording which ended with the woman being asked to put on her clothes again.
The video, said to be recorded secretly by using a camera phone, was viewed by Home Affairs Minister Datuk Azmi Khalid, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz and Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang.
It was shown on the screen of a laptop computer by DAP MP for Seputeh, Teresa Kok Suh Sim.
The case became public after a photograph of the woman in the video was published in a Chinese language newspaper today.
Mohamed Nazri and Azmi, who were asked for their comments afterwards, described the incident as "terrible" and "shameful" while Lim demanded immediate action to prevent a recurrence.
Mohamed Nazri, who is also chairman of the parliamentary human rights caucus comprising both government and opposition MPs, said the video was evidence that allegations of such incidents did occur.
He said he would show the recording to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
"I believe PM and DPM will order an immediate investigation," he said.
Asked whether stripping a suspect was part of the police's investigation procedure, he said it was not right.
