MyWatch chairman believes he is being targeted

PETALING JAYA: MyWatch chairman Datuk R. Sri Sanjeevan believes that certain quarters were attempting to tarnish his reputation by using dirty tactics. 

“Fighting crime here is a crime,” was the bold tagline of a post on his Facebook page on Saturday. 

“First it was Prevention of Crime Act (POCA), now it is khalwat. I won’t be surprised if tomorrow it is liwat (sodomy). 

“In Malaysia, the most common ways to tarnish a person’s reputation is to link them to corruption, crime and sexual acts,” he said in the post. 

Sanjeevan was referring to his recent run in with the authorities during a khalwat raid jointly organised by the Negri Sembilan Islamic Affairs Department and Bukit Aman’s Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS) on Friday. 

He and a female police inspector were questioned during the raid at a luxury hotel in Seremban, where they had stayed in connecting rooms. 

However, there weren’t any arrests as there was no indication of wrongdoing as both were found fully clothed in their separate rooms. 

In a statement that was posted on his Facebook later on Saturday, Sanjeevan strongly denied any allegation that he was guilty of khalwat with the female police officer just because she was staying in the room next to his.

“I cannot be blamed because it is not in my power to determine who sleeps in the next room,” he said.

Sanjeevan questioned whether such allegations would be made had it been a female minister who stayed in the room beside his.

“This slander was made to tarnish my reputation as a chairman of the crime watchdog NGO (non-governmental organisation), Malaysian Crime Watch Task Force (MyWatch),” he said.

On Thursday, Sanjeevan had stated, in another Facebook post, that he would stand his ground and not flee amidst speculation that he would be detained under the Prevention of Crime Act (Poca). 

Earlier last week, Sanjeevan had been warned by an unknown source that he could be detained by the authorities over his expose of an alleged spa he claimed was operating as a vice den near the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters.
