Perak exco member Paul Yong said he has a hunch about who is responsible for purportedly framing him with regard to the allegation of raping his Indonesian domestic worker.

“I can suspect… I have a hunch who is behind this. I lack solid proof so I cannot expose it here,” he said when met outside the Ipoh Sessions Court this morning.

The Perak DAP treasurer also expressed dissatisfaction with the police, saying he would not be in this situation if investigations were conducted in a professional manner.

“I believed in the police’s professionalism to execute their duties. But I am dissatisfied, the police involved in this case did not do their duties in a professional manner.

“If the police had been professional, I would not have been charged in court,” he added.

Earlier, the Tronoh assemblyperson pleaded not guilty to the charges under Section 376 of the Penal Code.

The court allowed the 49-year-old politician bail at RM15,000 with one surety.

Yesterday, Perak state speaker Ngeh Koo Ham filed a police report, claiming that the man who took the domestic worker to lodge a police report had received RM100,000 and was threatened by a gun-wielding man not to reveal this. – Malaysiakini
