KUALA LUMPUR: The clothes of flashers will be taken as evidence in future, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad. 

Referring to the recent acquittal of a 52-year-old PAS official who was alleged to have exposed himself by lifting his sarong to a Puteri Umno member, Dr Mahathir said: “We know what we are supposed to do. In future, we will make sure we get the sarong, even if we have to strip him naked to be used as evidence.  

“There might be other reasons why the case was thrown out but now we know that in future there is a need to get the sarong when there is a similar incident,” he said yesterday after attending PPP’s New Year open house celebration at the Putra World Trade Centre here. 

In acquitting Razak Abus without his defence being called on Dec 26, magistrate Mohd Redzuan Abdullah said his decision was based on several factors, including the failure of the prosecution to produce the sarong that Razak wore.
