Probe has led to 18 statements recorded and CCTV recording seized.

On Oct 2, a national diving coach was detained on suspicion of raping a woman national diving athlete at the Bukit Jalil Sports Complex on Sept 26. He has been further remanded until Oct 11.

The police have recorded the statements of 18 individuals and seized the recording of a closed circuit television (CCTV).

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said the police had also referred to the forensic, chemist and pathologist to complete the investigation process before submitting a complete report to the Attorney-General Chambers.

“So far, only one guy (arrested). I think we can consider (him) the main suspect, but it depends on the development of our investigation. If there is a need, the police will make more arrests to complete its investigation. 


“We will conduct a detailed investigation and hope the investigation papers can be completed as soon as possible,” Fuzi said.

The 35-year-old national coach from China was detained after the police received a report from the victim and was remanded to help in the investigation under Section 376 of the Penal Code.

The suspect has been working in Malaysia for over five years. He is said to be married to a Malaysian and has permanent resident status.
