KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman has received three police reports against celebrity preacher Ebit Lew in connection with alleged sexual harassment.
Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Seri Abd Jalil Hassan said the reports were investigated under Section 509 of the Penal Code for outraging of modesty, Section 14 of minor offences Act and Section 233 of the Communication and Multimedia Act 1998.
"The police reports were lodged by two women. One in Tenom and the other in Peninsular Malaysia.
"We have investigated all angles regarding this case, including the possibility of slander.
"However, we have collected solid evidence which culminated with the prosecution today," he told a press conference in Tenom, Sabah on Friday (Feb 18).
Further investigation on the matter would depend on the outcome of the trial, he added.
"We urge those with information to come forward to assist the police," he said.
Comm Abd Jalil also called on those who have been sexually harassed to come forward as soon as possible as they have the rights to lodge police reports on the matter.
