GEORGE TOWN: Another nudist has come forward to facilitate in the investigations after five fellow participants surrendered.

Singaporean PR Albert Yam Kam Hoong turned himself in at the district police headquarters in Balik Pulau on Saturday evening.

Yam, whose name was credited in the video “Penang Nude Sports Games 2014”, had earlier emailed an apology letter to the state government via a vernacular daily.

The content of the letter were as follows: “To the Penang State Government, we are sorry to hold a naturist event in Penang, which created a storm in the whole Malaysia. 

“We will ensure that we won’t do it again and please accept our deepest apologies for our misconduct that happened in Teluk Kampi, Penang and created embarrassment to the country. 

“We have much esteem for the law in Malaysia. Sincerely, Albert Yam Kam Hoong and naturists.”

Balik Pulau OCPD Supt Lai Fah Hin said they were working to obtain a remand order for Yam soon.

In a related development, remand orders have been obtained for four Malaysians aged between 24 and 57 and a 30-year-old Singaporean at the George Town Magistrates Court today.

They will be detained for three days until Aug 19 to assist in investigations under Section 509 of the Penal Code gestures intended to insult the modesty of a person.

If convicted, a nudist can be jailed up to five years or face a fine, or both.
