Major op to seize sex DVDs
MUAR: Police in Batu Pahat and here will launch a massive operation to nab those involved in distribution and in possession of the sex DVDs of Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.
Muar police chief Asst Comm Mohammad Nasir Ramli said the operation would include door-to-door searches of residents suspected to be in possession of the banned material.
He said it was an offence to possess and distribute copies of the DVDs and that offenders would be charged under Section 292 of the Penal Code, which carries a three-year jail term or fine or both.
“We are urging those in possession of the DVDs to surrender them to the police or risk being charged in court.
“We want residents here to be aware of the offence before we start making house visits,” he said yesterday.
ACP Mohammad Nasir said the DVDs were first distributed in the town in limited copies by certain parties but it is believed that some irresponsible people had made duplicates.
He said those found trading or selling the DVDs would be punished appropriately, and added that checks would be carried out at suspected shops and DVD outlets in the district.
Asked if police would be investigating into who was responsible for the DVD, he said it was up to the Inspector-General of Police.
Residents here who did not get free copies of the DVDs were looking for them at DVD outlets although none were seen to be on sale, and no one would admit to having them.
One person said he was willing to pay RM50 for the DVDs as it involved a Cabinet minister while others just wanted to satisfy their curiosity.
“I want to look at the woman who caused political trouble not only for Dr Chua, but also for MCA and the country,” said taxi driver Ahmad Hamid.
It's all over the internet now... I doubt doing a major seize for the DVDs would help.
