JOHOR BARU: A woman has accused a “Datuk” of harassing her after their 12-year affair ended.
Khoo Hwei Peng, 29, said they had met at a nightclub when she was 18 and they began a relationship even though the man was already married.
“Things were going well. He even bought a condominium and a Mercedes Benz and put them under my name,” she said.
However, the affair started to turn sour last year after he accumulated thousands of ringgit in debt due to his gambling habit.
Although the man had problems, he still asked her to run away with him, she claimed.
“I turned him down numerous times. In February, I suggested a break-up but he refused,” she said, adding that she then moved out of the condominium and into her mother’s house in Taman Nusa Bestari.
Speaking at a press conference organised by Gelang Patah MCA yesterday, Khoo said the man then started to threaten her, saying he would expose semi-nude photos of her online.
“He also offered me RM250,000 in exchange of the condominium and I eventually agreed because I did not want the matter to drag on,” she said, adding that she and her former lover approached the MCA Public Service and Complaints Bureau head Datuk Seri Michael Chong to sort out the matter legally.
“While waiting for our lawyers to draft out the documents, my ex-boyfriend brought nine men to my mother’s house on April 6 and bashed up my mother’s boyfriend,” she said.
Gelang Patah MCA division chief Jason Teoh hoped that the police would step in and handle the matter as Khoo was afraid for her life and the safety of her family members.
Meanwhile, Nusajaya deputy OCPD Deputy Supt Razak Md Said confirmed investigations were ongoing, adding that police were looking into all the allegations.
“The case is being investigated under Section 325 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt and Section 507 for criminal intimidation,” he said.
