KEPALA BATAS: A second woman has been detained for investigations into the Penang nude sports games held at Teluk Kampi in the Penang National Park.

State police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Abdul Rahim Hanafi said the 24-year-old woman, who works in Kuala Lumpur, was arrested in Perak at about 10am on Saturday and brought to the Balik Pulau station where her statement was recorded.

“We released her on police bail two hours later. She was the 18th person to be interviewed.

“We believe that the seven Malaysians identified in the video, including the organisers, are still at large because an Immigration Department check showed that they have not left the country,” he said after witnessing the handing over of duties by state logistics department chief Supt Mohd Taha Baba to Supt Rosli Hassan here yesterday.

In a related development, Penang Barisan Nasional chairman Teng Chang Yeow stressed that the state government did indeed have a say on the park’s management.

He said that with three state-appointed representatives as well as the state secretary, who also chairs the National Park Committee, on the National Park Advisory Council, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng should not be ignorant about the matter.

“Now, he claims that the state government’s role in the Penang National Park is a minor one and he wants full control of it.

“It seems like he does not even know about his ‘minor role’ over the last six years and only found out when I raised the matter,” he said.

On Saturday, Lim had said that it was unfair to blame the state government because it did not have final say over the park.

He also said that Penang was prepared to assume full responsibility for the park provided it was also allowed to take over its advisory council.

Penang Gerakan secretary Oh Tong Keong lambasted Lim for “acting innocent” on the state government’s powers over the management of the park.
