PUTRAJAYA, 19 Feb 2009: Kuala Lumpur police, who took over from the Selangor police today the case involving Bukit Lanjan assemblywoman Elizabeth Wong, would be assisted by Bukit Aman, said Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Wira Mohd Sabtu Osman.
He said the switch in the venue of the case would not affect the progress and investigations as only the investigation officers are going to be different.
“We will continue the investigations conducted by the Selangor police,” he told reporters after opening a community police beat at Presint 9 here today.
Wong, 37, who is also a Selangor executive councillor, made a police report after her nude pictures, apparently taken by her ex-boyfriend, were distributed on the internet.
Mohd Sabtu said the police were in the process of locating Wong’s ex-boyfriend who is expected to be a key witness in the case.
He said the case was being investigated under Section 509 of the Penal Code for insulting the modesty of a woman, which carries a maximum of five years’ jail or fine or both. — Bernama
