Tebrau MP Jimmy Puah Wee Tse has called on the police to investigate the person who recorded a couple’s lewd act in a red Axia.
Pua said the person who recorded the act had pretended to be a policeman.
The person also allegedly demanded to see the couple’s identification.
When they refused to do so, the unknown man had then tried to extort the duo. The man had also followed the couple until the Pasir Putih police station after they ran away from him.Tebrau MP Jimmy Puah Wee Tse on why the police should investigate the man.
Puah added that he would be going to the Seri Alam district police headquarters tomorrow (9 April) to find out the latest developments on the case.
Puah, the former Johor PKR Legal Bureau chief, met the couple with their lawyer.
The couple, detained on Thursday (6 April), is being investigated under Section 377D of the Penal Code for gross indecent behaviour with another person in public.
No Small Matter
If convicted, they could face a maximum jail term of two years.

Their act was recorded in a 23-second video uploaded to social media and went viral.
In the video, the man who recorded the act was asked to delete it and promised to do so.
Many were aghast that such a video was shared with the public and called for its removal from social media.
Meanwhile, netizens also urged the police to arrest the man who recorded and uploaded the video.
They are indignant as it involved a teenager, while others pointed out that the man had broken the law.

What the man should have done, they said, is to alert the authorities right away.
Tolong tahan jugak si perakam dan yang menyebarkan video diorang ni. Rakam, simpan dan sebar video budak bawah umur ya! https://t.co/OAsiODngfV— Wena (@WainaZainal) April 8, 2023
Sepatutnya perakam dan penyebar video kanak-kanak perempuan di Pasir Gudang tu turut ditangkap. Definisi kanak-kanak ialah di bawah 18 tahun (seksyen 16 Akta 611). Seksyen 233 (1)(a), Akta Komunikasi & Multimedia pun jelas. Boleh tahan dan didakwa.— Hazrey (@Hazrey) April 7, 2023
apa yang aku harap adalah si perakam dan penyebar video ni kene tangkap supaya menjadi pengajaran kepada orang lain,bila kau nampak orang fck kat public call polis sebab bende tu salah tak kisah agama apa pon tapi bila kau record and post apa motif kau sebenarnya its not normal https://t.co/xfLCPR1YBZ— JariNatazan (@JNatazan_) April 6, 2023
