Teens circulating homemade porn to schoolmates, say Melaka cops


MELAKA: Teenage students as young as 15 years old are brazenly recording videos of their sexual escapades before circulating them to their schoolmates, says Melaka police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Majid Mohd Ali.

He said these young love birds, mostly peers from the same schools, went to the extent of renting hotels and apartments to engage in such activities.

“A new trend is emerging here where these teenagers booked into hotels and apartments offering them less than RM100 rental per day to engage in sexual activities before showing videos of them in compromising positions to their friends.

“Based on our investigation, the young couples claimed it was consensual sex without comprehending that it’s an offence under the law, ” he said when interviewed here on Thursday (Mar 25).

DCP Abdul Majid said police have the onus to investigate underage rape cases as the law defines that under 16 years of age, sex with or without consent, is statutory rape.

The recent case, he said involved a 16-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl who are classmates.

“These cases involve students and this lead to a spike in rape cases in Melaka although overall crime indexes had been successfully slashed to a desirable level, ” he said.

DCP Abdul Majid said he was also saddened with the confessions made by these teenagers during questioning that they had shared the video footage of their sex acts with their classmates and schoolmates.

“Most of the intimate relationships only come to the open when the parents and guardians discover the sexual escapades, ” he said.

DCP Abdul Majid said police viewed the trend as a moral decay of youngsters in the state and felt stakeholders have to share responsibilities and work out mechanisms to stop the teenagers from engaging in sexual activities at a tender age.

He revealed that five teen rape cases were reported up to Jan 23 of this year, 69 cases in 2020 and 25 cases in 2019.
