Cold water thrown on ‘Hot Daddy’ and two girlfriends

KUALA LUMPUR: A father of three, infamously known as “Hot Daddy”, and his two girlfriends have been charged for offering sexual services on X (formerly known as Twitter).

Hasli Ikhwan Arif Zul Hasli, 32, Norhidayah Mahadi, 24, and Norshazrina Md Zamri, 27, pleaded not guilty before Sessions Court judge Siti Aminah Ghazali here yesterday.

According to the charge sheet, the accused advertised sexual activities using X, whereby a reasonable person would understand it as “prostitution services”.

The offence was allegedly committed at the anti-vice, gambling and secret societies division (D7) office in Bukit Aman on Jan 16.

They were charged under Section 372 (1)(e) of the Penal Code, read together with Section 34 of the same Act, which carries a jail term of up to 15 years, whipping and fine, upon conviction.

Deputy public prosecutor Nidzuwan Abd Latif did not offer bail on grounds the charge was a non-bailable offence and taking into consideration public interest.

“However, if the court allows bail, the prosecution suggests a RM20,000 bail for each,” he said.

Lawyer Mohd Faris Abrar Othman, who represented all three accused, sought a minimum bail amount.

He said his clients are not a flight risk as they are locals and have families.

“Hasli Ikhwan has to care for his 67-year-old father, who has kidney illness. He has three children aged 12, 10 and four.

“Norshazrina works as a manager in the private sector with a RM4,000 monthly income.

“She has to look after her 56-year-old mother, who has heart disease while Norhidayah does not have a fixed income,” he said.

Siti Aminah allowed bail at RM10,000 in one surety for each accused. The case is fixed for mention on Feb 28.
