Ex minister’s aide charged with sending indecent pic

KUALA LUMPUR, 20 May 2009: A public relations officer of a private construction company pleaded not guilty at the Session’s Court today to a charge of sending an email containing 55 indecent pictures to a Gossip magazine reporter nine years ago.

Roslan Abu Bakar, 49, from Bukit Sekilau, Kuantan was charged with knowingly initiating the transmission of obscene communications with the intention of harassing one Dayangku Intan Mohamed Rusli.

According to the charge sheet, Roslan had sent the said emails through the account [email protected] to [email protected] owned by Dayangku Intan.

He was charged with committing the offence at the office of the Kuantan parliamentary service centre at second floor, BII0, Jalan Tun Ismail, Kuantan, at about 9.30am on 22 Aug 2000.

At that time he was reported to be an aide to a member of parliament who was also a senior minister.

Roslan was charged under Section 233(1)(a) of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, and can be fined a maximum of RM50,000 or jailed up to a year or both if convicted.

Deputy public prosecutor Amira Sariaty Zainal requested that the court fix a bail of RM10,000 with one surety.

Roslan, who is not represented, requested that bail be reduced as his brother who was bailing him, only had about RM1,000.

“At that time I was young and I had no intention of sending those pictures,” he said.

Judge Rozana Ali Yusoff fixed the bail at RM5,000 with one surety and set 19 June for the mention. Roslan posted the bail. — Bernama

    Was it his aid (as in his wheel chair or his waling cane) or was it his aide as in his assistant that sent the offending pictures in this case?

    If you are to engage in the day to day trash of sensationalism in reporting about murders, porn and the like, at least get your terminology and your spelling right.

    We as the public that comment have an excuse as we do not hold ourselvs out to be journalists or an alternative medium to the daily trash that is your conventional rags and tags.

    Come on Nuts you can do a better job.
