KUALA LUMPUR: Batu MP Tian Chua was charged with “outraging the modesty” of a policeman through the use of foul language.
Tian Chua, whose real name is Chua Tian Chang, claimed trial before the Sessions Court to accusations that he had outraged the modesty of Deputy Supt Glenn A. Sinappah by saying words such as “bastard”, “stupid police” and other foul words.
The alleged offence occurred at the main entrance of the Armada Hotel in Petaling Jaya at 7.45pm on April 14.
The offence under Section 509 of the Penal Code is punishable by a five-year prison sentence or a fine, or both.
DPP Zhafran Rahim Hamzah urged that bail be set at RM20,000 but Tian Chua’s counsel Michelle Yesudas sought for a bail of RM500.
She said Tian Chua was a second term Member of Parliament and had never failed to appear for his other court cases.
Judge Abu Bakar Manat fixed bail at RM5,000 with one surety and set Sept 11 for the next mention.
Yesudas said in an interview later that the offence under the Penal Code provided protection to the modesty of both men and women.
