KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Home Minister Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman’s former aide, who was caught on closed circuit television (CCTV) recording an upskirt video of a woman at an optical shop in Solaris Dutamas, was released on police bail last night. Sentul district police chief Assistant Commissioner R. Munusamy said the 47-year-old man was released at 10pm after having his statement recorded. Munusamy added investigations were still underway. The man was arrested by police at a restaurant in Solaris Publika at 1pm yesterday to facilitate investigation. Police has since opened an investigation paper in relation to the case after they received a police report over the incident. The case was being investigated under Section 509 of the Penal Code and Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955. The aide has been sacked with immediate effect after a video depicting the incident went viral on the social media. In her police report, the woman said she was conducting an eye test on the minister in the shop at 11am, and minister’s aide was hovering behind her. Feeling uncomfortable with the man’s suspicious behaviour, the victim turned to look at a screen next to her, and she noticed the man was holding a mobile phone. She reviewed the CCTV footage later and saw the man had placed his phone under her skirt and recorded a video. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
