Woman Alleged that Police Officer Raped and Took Nude Pictures of Her

A factory worker claimed that a police officer, an Assistant Superintendent in his late 40s, had allegedly raped her and took nude pictures of her at a hotel in George Town. The officer then sent the pictures to her army officer husband and two colleagues last month.

The victim said she knew the officer when she went to see him to help reduce her traffic summons in 2004. He was attached to the Seberang Prai police but was recently transferred to Kuala Lumpur. The officer wanted to see the woman after his transfer, but she refused and he threatened her. The rape allegedly occurred some time in the last three years.

When her husband received the pictures in his office, he took her to lodge a police report on 24 July 2007.

Police have taken statements from both parties and seized a laptop computer, a mobile phone and a printer from the policeman’s office. They have classified the case as criminal intimidation by anonymous communication under Section 507 of the Penal Code, which carries a two-year jail term and a possible fine.
