Report: Nur Sajat alleges molest by enforcement officers during January 2021 arrest


PETALING JAYA: Controversial cosmetics entrepreneur Nur Sajat (pic), who is said to have been recently granted asylum in Australia, alleges she was molested by enforcement officers when she was arrested earlier in 2021.

Nur Sajat claimed she was touched inappropriately while being arrested during the incident.

“They think it was justified because they perceived me as a male person.

“They didn’t treat me with any compassion or humanity,” Nur Sajat was quoted as saying in a report by the New York Times, a United States-based news organisation.

The entrepreneur, who is currently residing in Sydney, said her mother was present during the incident and allegedly witnessed at least three officers manhandling and molesting her during the arrest.

She added that her mother had confronted the officers over their behavior but claimed to have been told that their actions were acceptable as Nur Sajat was “a man".

Nur Sajat, 36, was said to be on the run for the last few months after a blasphemy charge was levelled at her in Malaysia for dressing as a woman.

Nur Sajat was reportedly detained and fined by Thai authorities on Sept 8 for having an invalid passport.

She was then believed to have sought refuge through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
