Johor Baru

Police officers from the state Commercial Crime Unit have arrested two more suspects on Saturday at 8:30pm for selling sex DVDs of former Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

The two men were selling the videos in Taman Setia Indah, Johor Baru. These arrests brings the total number of people caught for making or possessing copies of pornographic material related to Dr Chua to six. Both were found with six copies each of the video, which they were selling for between RM15 and RM50.

In addition to Dr Chua’s video, the men were also found with hundreds of pornographic and pirated DVDs. These suspects will be remanded until today.

Last week, two men and two women were remanded in Batu Pahat and Johor Baru. Yesterday, 26-year-old See Tooh Choy Yoke and 51-year-old Lim Poi Keong were charged with duplicating 11 copies of the DVD at a manicure and pedicure salon in Taman Bukit Perdana. As they were charged under Section 292 (c) of the Penal Code for making copies of pornographic material, they were each fined RM15,000 and four days of jail.

See Tooh works at the salon along Jalan Susur Perdana and has two children, while Lim was a farmer.

A second woman, 29-year-old Tay Bee Bee, was fined RM10,000 and jailed for five days for possessing 3 copies of the video. She also has two children and owns the salon. It is believed that Tay is also from the MCA Batu Pahat division.

However, a 48-year-old businessman pleaded not guilty to the charge of possessing the said DVD. Tan Kim Chong claimed trial to the charge of having several copies of the video at a food court along Jalan Badik 1, Taman Sri Tebrau on Friday at 6pm.

Bail was set at RM4,000 and the trial date on 23 April 2008.

It is believed that the video was selling in Penang for between RM20 and RM30. The DVD contains about 28 minutes of footage of the hotel room.
