Technician in CCTV case to know fate soon

Hmm, what about the police investigation? Isn't this a crime?

(The Star) PENANG: The Penang Municipal Council (MPPP) will soon decide on the fate of its technician who allegedly peeped at a reporter’s thighs through the closed-circuit television (CCTV).

MPPP president Datuk Abu Bakar Hassan said the domestic inquiry team wrapped up its investigation last week.

“We will study the report and papers pertaining to the case and make a decision,” he told reporters after state executive councillor Datuk Dr Teng Hock Nan flagged off a team of mountain bikers participating in the Kayuh Lasak Penang Mountain Bike Jamboree 2006 at the Municipal Park here yesterday.

Abu Bakar was asked to comment on a case involving an MPPP technician who allegedly peeped at the thighs of New Straits Times reporter Melissa Darlyne Chow through the CCTV.

On Nov 10, Guang Ming Daily journalist Ong Beng Siang spotted the images of someone’s thighs on the CCTV monitor in the control room located next to the public gallery.

Newsmen covering the full council meeting were shocked to find the CCTV camera zooming in on Chow’s thighs.

MPPP initiated a domestic inquiry to ascertain if the technician had breached discipline.
