Deputy IGP not doing image of police any good with his threat to “expose sex video performer” when public are aghast the three “Datuk Ts” have not been charged in court for various crimes they had publicly confessed

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar is not doing the image of the police any good with his threat yesterday to “expose” the Carcosa sex video performer.

The Malaysian public are outraged and aghast that after more than a month, the trio of “Datuk T”, namely former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Rahim Tamby Cik, Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and Datuk Shuib Lazim have not been charged in court for various crimes for the Carcosa sex video public screening on March 21, which they had confessed also more than a month ago, and yet, the most serious matter occupying the minds of the police is to “expose the sex video performer”!

Who are the police really serving – the Malaysian nation and public by punishing crimes and upholding the rule of law or the Barisan Nasional/UMNO political masters to dance to their latest tune to use the police to plumb to the lowest dregs of gutter politics in the history of Malaysia?

If the latter, I have no doubt that the overwhelming majority of the police officers and rank-and-file will recoil and feel thoroughly ashamed because it further besmirches the independence, image, professionalism, integrity and reputation of the Royal Malaysian Police Force when the most pressing and urgent challenge facing the Malaysian police is to restore public confidence in its independence, integrity and professionalism after the worst blot on police reputation and the “blackest” chapter in police history – the Anwar Ibrahim “black eye” episode in Bukit Aman in 1998!

The Carcosa sex video caper had been timed to wreak the worst possible damage against Pakatan Rakyat and the Parliamentary Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in the 10th Sarawak general elections – but the 416 Sarawak election results showed that its effect was virtually nil or Sarawak Barisan Nasional would not have suffered its worst Sarawak election results despite the six-day campaign by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and the entire Cabinet!

There are UMNO/BN elements who want to play “political games” with the Carcosa sex tape but why should the Police compromise its image and reputation by descending so low as to be co-opted into the cast of UMNO/BN theatrics against Pakatan Rakyat and Anwar Ibrahim?

Two questions confronting all right-thinking Malaysians are:

  1. Why the trio of “Datuk T”, namely Rahim, Shazryl and Shuib have not yet been prosecuted for various crimes including Section 292 of the Penal Code for “publicly exhibiting any obscene or pornographic material” liable to a jail term of three years or Section 5(1) of the Film Censorship Act 2002 where a person is liable to be fined up to RM50,000 or jailed up to five years or both. Do the trio enjoy immunity and impunity for breaches of the law and actions which have brought world-wide shame to the nation?

  2. Are the police “hand-in-glove” with Umno/Barisan Nasional forces to undermine Pakatan Rakyat by specifically targeting Anwar to destroy him as the foremost challenger to continued Umno/Barisan Nasional rule in Putrajaya?

  3. Former Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigation Division (CID) chief, Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim, who had proven himself to be a honest and honourable police officer fiercely loyal to Malaysian national interests, and who was subsequently victimised in his police career for his professional investigation into the Anwar Ibrahim “black eye” episode, has revealed that another Alleged Anwar Sex Tape2 had surfaced 12 years ago in 1999 to impugn Anwar’s character and reputation.

    Zain had asked the Police to widen its investigations into the Carcosa sex video to ascertain whether there are any possible links between the two Alleged Anwar Sex Tapes separated by 12 years, together with seven specific questions, and posing the pertinent issue whether the Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail can be trusted to discharge his duties professionally because of his past involvements in various anti-Anwar episodes.

    Why is there total silence from the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar and the Deputy IGP in the past 10 days to Zain’s Open Letter to the IGP dated 18th April 2011 when the duo are so prepared to comment on various matters under the sun?

    Right on uncle Lim. Why are the 3 datuks still not charged? And why are their datuk titles still not stripped for commiting such an act?

    Are the police now telling us that it is perfectly legal to screen a prono flick if we have the backing of a datuk or datuks in public places especially if its at Seri Carcosa?

    They are not charging “Datuk T” for 2 reasons (1) they are obvious benefactor of the Regime trying to bring down an opposition leader & (2) they might not have committed an offence at least under section 292 of our Penal Code…

    On why there is contention whether an offence has really been committed, there are two reasons.

    Firstly for an offence to be made out, the material publicly exhibited must qualify to be “obscene” in that by itself appeals to the carnal side of human nature, to “deprave and corrupt” those (especially the young & vulnerable) whose minds (and behaviour) are open and susceptible to such corrupting influences…

    Ordinary understanding of what is obscene may be different from that of judges in relation to the law & its purpose. (for eg. English Judge Cockburn lay down the test – “the test of obscenity is this, whether the tendency of the matter charged as obscene is to deprave and corrupt those whose minds are open to such immoral influences and into whose hands a publication of this sort would fall.”]

    Secondly the public exhibition is normally for purpose of reaping “profits in business” in the language of the Penal Code. Even if the material were obscene in sense that it corrupts young & susceptible minds, it would still be a defence if its publication/exhibition is for a preponderating purpose to public benefit.

    Here the ‘Datuk T’ would likely argue that that’s their purpose – to expose a public figure/politician who otherwise have misled others to thinking he holds high claim to morality. Although their claim is implausible to many of us – what is truer is that the sole preponderating purpose is political, ie to undermine the Opposition & protect incumbent govt – yet the fact remains that the Carcosa exhibition was not staged for business profit though it might be for political profit! Neither can it be said that journalists selected for viewing are young and vulnerable minds susceptible to sexual or moral depravity and corruption by reason of their viewing, and intyo whose hands fell the pornographic material.

    It may be a good strategy (on Opposition side) to pressure authorities why they are acquiescing with gutter politics by not being seen to take action but if one looks at the matter closely it is not a clear open or shut case that an offence has been made out.

    The enemies of the Opposition would like investigation kept open – not so much to go after the Trio who showed the tape but more to find out what other there were evidence might be uncovered that would irrefutably support their claim before the public, thus exonerating them whilst at same time incriminating the one who poses the maximum political threat.

    Very qualified what.The video became the most sought after for entertainment/learning experience and Utusan malu-sia probably churned out another extra thousands copies of its circulation.1Porno!

    Yeah, the 3 Datuks who hid recorders in people,s room to record sex acts should be jailed for invading the private life of citizens.
    Since they have made copies of this recording to be distributed, they are considered as porno film makers.
    This recording is obviously here to tarnish Anwar reputation,
    another lowest method used by UMNO as they feel threaten by Anwar’s popularity. It is not surprise that UMNO always use these dirty tactics to fool the naive and corrupted citizens.
    What Anwar did with his personal life is not our concern, a Malaysian malaysia policy by Anwar is .

    If the IGP have any principles in life..he should arrest the trio.
    If he cares for his children…he should quickly take the vedio out .
    If he have any love for Allah…he should not serve Najib and Rosmah like[deleted]
    All Malaysians can is not Anwar at all.
    Why is IGP eyes so blind?
    If he is able to see what Malaysians can see…the trio should be arrested and jailed now.
    Why is IGP so irresponsible?

    Why is IGP eyes cannot see what Malaysians eyes can see?
    Why is the trio….where one is the obvious actor….not arrested?

    Why are the top men in the police so interested in exposing the porn actor in this movie flick. How many women are being raped per day in Malaysia? How many cars are being stolen and exported by efficient syndicated car jackers per day? How many people are being robbed, housed broken into everyday. All these are of no concern to the IGP but the main actor in a low quality porn production is. When PR gets to Putrajaya, the first thing they should do is to fire all these idiotic dead wood and dead weight in the police force. Disgraceful.

    After I read this yesterday, immediately I knew there is something wrong with this guy – he is just a stooge carrying out the job of his political masters.

    ///…or Sarawak Barisan Nasional would not have suffered its worst Sarawak election results despite the six-day campaign by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and the entire Cabinet!///

    Actually Sarawak voters were aware that there were rampant corruption in the federal government, and the presence of the entire Cabinet gave the voters a full view of those whom Sarawakians were awaiting to teach them a lesson. That lesson was given but whether the cabinet was taught is still not known.

    The deputy IGP threaten to expose the ‘performer in the video”. Malaysian police through the deputy give notice that not only criminals blackmail, persons who are paid by the people of Malaysia and who are in uniform are also in the practice of blackmailing innocent civilians. They are better not non-uniform criminals because they are protected by the boss, akin to the practice of the secret societies.

    The police have sunk that low that it would openly threaten the people. If sexual act caught in the camera is a crime committed by the performers, then that should be written in the law, and it should also specify in the law that it is legal to film others on whatever they do, and that people of Malaysia have no longer a right to privacy.
