Man files report after getting letter with party symbol, nude photo

IPOH: Police are investigating a report from an individual who received a letter containing a party logo and a modified image of him in the nude in Selama on Sunday night.

Perak police GE14 media relations officer ACP Shaharon Anuar Abdul Latif said the report was received from the individual, in his 40s, at around 10pm.

He said the man received the letter while in the compound of SJK Tamil Ladang Malaya, Selama.

“The letter contained his personal details, the modified nude picture of himself and the symbol of a party.

“The individual is not a candidate for any party, but we are still investigating this case under Section 509 of the Penal Code,” he said in a statement here yesterday.

Section 509 deals with the intention to insult the modesty of a person.

Shaharon added that 72 talks were held around the state on Sunday, 20 of which were held without permits.

He said from Saturday to Sunday, the police had opened three investigation papers with two arrests made based on 10 reports involving election-related cases.

“People are reminded to control their feelings. Do not be too emotional when campaigning, to the point of causing provocation.

“They are advised to refer to the police if there is a problem,” he added.
