Nude pix of nurse circulated

GEORGE TOWN: A nurse whose nude photographs were widely circulated on the Internet recently has said she would not resign from her work.

“Life goes on although the nude pictures will more or less undermine my profession,” said the 27-year-old woman, who works in a private hospital in George Town here.

She admitted she was the person in the pictures during an exclusive interview with a Chinese daily here on Thursday.

The woman, known only as Pak, said she would not blame anyone, including the perpetrator who up-loaded the pictures online.

Earlier, several Chinese dailies had reported that a collection of nude pictures of Pak was being widely circulated on the Internet.

It is learnt that the pictures were up-loaded by a spurned suitor, whose advances Pak had rejected for nearly three years.

The man, in apparent retaliation, got hold of the pictures after bribing one of Pak’s close friends, who was believed to have down-loaded the nude pictures from Pak’s laptop.

Pak said the pictures were taken in 2005, adding that she learned about the online pictures through a friend in September last year. She added that she subsequently lodged a police report.

“I confessed to my boyfriend and family members, and they advised me to lodge a police report.

“I am grateful to them and the management of the hospital who provided me with the needed encouragement during my difficult times,” she said.

Pak said the pictures were only meant for her personal collection.

When contacted, George Town OCPD Asst Comm Azam Abd Hamid said police had yet to receive any report related to the matter.

“I urge the woman to come forward and furnish us with details so we can nab the culprit,” he said.
