ARAU: Seputeh MP Teresa Kok did not go against the law when she showed the MPs the video clip of a woman doing ear squats in the nude. 

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said yesterday that she had shown the clip to back up the allegations involving the police force. 

“The action taken by her was not wrong and it should not be turned into an issue. 

“The real issue here is whether the ear squats in the nude were appropriate or not. That is the issue and the rest is not,” he told reporters after launching the Malaysia Siam Association’s sixth annual general meeting at the Cheng Aun Kong hall in Jejawi near here. 

He was replying to questions on whether action would be taken against Kok and others who have circulated the video clip. 

A Bahasa Malaysia daily on Saturday quoted a lawyer Jamil Mohamed Shafie as saying that action could be taken against Kok under section 292 of the Penal Code, which stated that those who showed pornographic material to the public can be imprisoned for three years or fined RM10,000 or both. 

Mohamed Nazri said it did not matter if the allegations came from an Opposition party, adding: “What’s important is that the issue was brought up in Parliament.” 

“The video clip was distributed not for fun or to make a profit but was shown as proof and we have to focus on the issue. 

“But it is up to the authorities if they want to take the necessary action,” he said.  

It was reported in the media recently that a woman, believed to be a Chinese national, was ordered to perform ear squats in the nude in a police lock-up. 

The case was highlighted when Kok used her laptop to show MPs the clip at the Parliament lobby.
