Italian man in supermarket voyeur case freed on bail


KUALA LUMPUR: An Italian man who allegedly recorded photographs of a student’s thighs and buttocks while she was standing on a supermarket escalator was released on RM10,000 bail here yesterday. 

Luca Dal Pozzo, 39, was freed after he appeared before Civil Sessions Registrar Tuan Kechik Tuan Hussien in chambers to finalise his bail. 

Tuan Kechik acted on behalf of magistrate's court registrar Norhayati Abdul Jabar, who was on leave. 

Pozzo, who is an economist, was released with one Malaysian surety. 

His Malaysian bailer, a consultant, posted bail at 10.40am. 

BAILED OUT: Pozzo rushing to his car after being released on RM10,000 bail Monday. He had earlier claimed trial to intruding upon a student's privacy and intending to insult her modesty.

He was earlier taken to the Dang Wangi magistrate’s court here to for his case to be heard but was later taken to the lower court’s registry for the bail application. 

Last Tuesday, Pozzo, who was from Reveno, Italy, claimed trial to intruding upon the 30-year-old student’s privacy and intending to insult her modesty.  

He allegedly committed the offence at the Suria KLCC Isetan supermarket in Dang Wangi at about 4.50pm on May 8. 

Pozzo, who was arrested the same day, was charged under Section 509 of the Penal Code, which carries a five-year jail term or a fine or both. 

Yesterday, the accused put on a surgical mask immediately after noticing photographers while he was walking to the lower court’s registry. 

Later, he was seen rushing to a car as he was leaving with his lawyer M. Sathiaseelan and another foreigner, to avoid photographers.  

The case had earlier been fixed for June 25 for mention.
