Up-skirt video menace at Mid Valley mall

KUALA LUMPUR, 7 Aug 2017: 

A marketing executive of a bank here was charged at the magistrate’s court today with outraging the modesty of a real estate agent by recording a video up her skirt, last Friday.

Lim Zheng Xian, 23, however, pleaded not guilty when the charge was read before magistrate Mahyudin Mohmad Som.

He was alleged to have committed the offence against the 24-year-old woman on an escalator in the Mid Valley Shopping Mall here, at 8pm on Aug 4.

The charge, under Section 509 of the Penal Code, carries a maximum jail sentence of up to five years, or a fine, or both, upon conviction.

The court set bail at RM4,000 with one surety and fixed Sept 11 for mention.

Earlier, deputy public prosecutor Nur Farah Adilah Noordin asked the court to set bail at RM7,000.

However, Lim – who was unrepresented – appealed for a minimum bail on the grounds that he was supporting his parents.

Meanwhile in LAHAD DATU, a man lost his life – just because he was suspected of having stolen a chicken.

He was badly beaten early today, believed to be  by the owner of the bird, with blunt objects in Kampung Bugis here.

In the 12.30am incident, Lahad Datu ACP Hamzah Ahmad said the victim, aged 37, was sent to the district hospital by members of the public – but was pronounced dead on arrival.

“According to a witness who was driving by the scene of the incident at the time, he saw two men by the roadside, one in a kneeling position.

“Just as he had gone about a 100m, the witness received a call asking for help and he turned back only to find the man who was kneeling unconscious while the other man was nowhere to be seen.” he said in a statement.

The case was believed to over a chicken that was stolen from the other man two days ago, he said, adding that police were looking for the suspect, also aged 37.
