The Filipino tourist who was captured on video strolling naked in the city last week has been slapped with a further charge of insulting the modesty of the public.
Kent Caburnay Acuin, 29, who was charged with indecent behaviour in the Kuala Lumpur Magistrate’s Court yesterday, also pleaded not guilty to the new charge.
He was accused of insulting the public’s modesty at Jalan Sultan Ismail here at 10.40am on March 13 by climbing naked onto a car.
The charge was made under Section 509 of the Penal Code which provides imprisonment of up to five years, a fine or both upon conviction.
The prosecution, conducted by deputy public prosecutor B Rajdeep Singh, did not offer bail as Acuin, who was unrepresented, is a foreigner and does not have a Malaysian bailor.
Magistrate Maizatul Munirah Abdul Rahman set April 22 for mention.
Yesterday, Acuin, from Cebu in the Philippines, pleaded not guilty to indecent behaviour by climbing onto a Honda City while naked at the same time and date.
The charge was made under Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955, which provides a maximum fine of RM100 upon conviction.
