KUALA LUMPUR: Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Abdul Hamid Zainal Abidin said various legal aspects need to be looked into before action can be taken against an artiste and her partner who were said to have acted in a pornographic movie. 

“Any immoral act should not be looked at from the legal aspect alone, it is the joint responsibility of all individuals and society, we can't close our eyes to such cases,” he said. 

Abdul Hamid, who was met after the opening of the Umno general assembly yesterday, said this when asked whether legal action would be taken against the artiste involved in the pornographic movie. 

When asked whether the artiste concerned would be called up for investigation, he said: “Various actions can be taken (against the artiste) in terms of the Syariah law ..., this is within the power of the state (Religious Department and State Islamic Affairs Council) where it happened...,” he said. – Bernama
