KUALA LUMPUR: Police have opened an investigation paper in connection with former aide of Deputy Home Minister Datuk Azis Jamman, who was caught on CCTV recording an upskirt video of a woman at an optical shop in Solaris Dutamas.

City police chief Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim in a statement today, while confirming police had received a police report over the case, said the investigation was conducted in accordance with the standard operating procedures.

Mazlan said the case is being investigated under Section 509 of the Penal Code and Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955.

He also advised the members of the public to not viral the video as the case is still under investigation.

He added those with information can contact the senior investigating officer, Assistant Superintendent Azrizal Khairul Abd Kadir at 019-2769117, or call the Sentul district police headquarters at 03-40482233.

Last night in a statement, Azis said the aide had been sacked with immediate effect.

A one-minute-47-second-long video depicting the incident had gone viral on social media since yesterday. The woman had since lodged a police report over the incident.

In her report, the woman said she was conducting an eye test on the minister in the shop at 11am. The minister’s aide, she said, was hovering behind her.

“The man (aide) was behaving suspiciously and I felt uncomfortable with his actions,” she said.

As she turned to look at a screen next to her, she noticed that the man was holding a mobile phone.

“After reviewing the CCTV footage later, I saw that the man had placed his phone under my skirt and recorded a video,” she said in her police report. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
