SPAD Tracks Down Taxi Driver In Alleged Sexual Assault
SPAD Chief Excutive Officer, Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal in a statement Tuesday said, SPAD had tracked down the driver, believed to be in his 70s and he had been called in for investigation.
"We (SPAD) will work closely with police in this investigation. SPAD stand firm in condemning all forms of harassment and if found guilty, the taxi driver runs the risk of having his licence revoked under the Land Public Transport Act 2010.
He was commenting on the article published by The Star entitled 'Nightmare ride with pervert cabbie' where a 20-year-old woman claimed she was forced to place her hand on the driver's private part throughout the ride.
The call centre employee had boarded the taxi after shopping for groceries near Jalan Metro Prima in Kepong, at about 7pm on Jan 28.
She sat next to the driver, who then started to make explicit and sexual comments about her.
The driver, believed to be in his 70s, allegedly rubbed her thigh and placed a knife on the dashboard as he spouted vulgar words at the scared woman.
Mohd Nur Ismal said anyone found guilty of the offence is unfit to be a taxi driver and a disgrace to the profession.
