Police visits Hotel Katerina

A seven member forensic team from the federal police headquarters visited a four-star hotel here Thursday to investigate the scene where the sex DVD which featured Health Minister Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek was purportedly filmed.

The team, comprising six men and a woman, arrived at The Katerina Hotel at about 3.35pm in two vehicles.

It is learnt deputy CID director (II) Senior Asst Comm (I) Shatar Abdul Jalil headed the team.

The purpose of the visit was to determine how and where the spy cameras were planted to record the sexual act.

A source familiar with the investigation said police have also recorded statements from relevant people including the management and staff of the hotel.

Johor police chief Deputy Commissioner Datuk Husin Ismail confirmed the team’s visit.

Meanwhile, the operator of a boutique in a supermarket here, who is believed to be the woman who was also featured in the sex DVD, could not be located.

Reporters who turned up at her shop found it was closed and checks with neighbouring shopkeepers revealed the boutique had been closed for several days.

A Chinese daily reporter even tried to look for her at a housing scheme in Batu Pahat but found her house locked and vacated since news of the sex DVD broke out.

In Muar, police operations to locate the sex DVDs sold in outlets here since Wednesday were unsuccessful.

Muar OCPD Asst Comm Mohammad Nasir Ramli said they would continue with their operations to ensure the sex DVDs are not sold to the public.

“I urge those who have received copies of the DVDs to surrender them to us and lodge a police report. Those with information pertaining to the case can also assist us in the investigation.”

District Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs’ enforcement unit chief Arifin Baharin said raids at night markets in several areas also failed to uncover the sex DVDs.

In Penang, police have detected a video sex clip, featuring Chua, in the state.

It is believed that the edited 28min 55sec clip has already made its way into thousands of handphones here.

OCPD Asst Comm Azam Abd Hamid said telecommunication shop owners had been advised not to download the clip for their customers.

“Anyone caught selling the sex DVD or having the clip on their handphones can be charged with possession of pornographic materials under Section 292 of the Penal Code,” he said.
