A PKR MP in Perak and a former party division treasurer in the state have filed police reports against each other.
The woman accused the first-term MP of harassing her repeatedly. The PKR MP, on the other hand, alleged that she subjected him to mental torture and trauma.
The woman, whose identity has been withheld, said in her police report she had worked for the MP as a parliamentary research officer since May 9 last year and was also a treasurer of a Perak PKR branch.
She claimed that the MP’s attitude towards her started changing between last December and April this year, when he resorted to calling her “ammu” and “cayang” every time they met and through the phone.
“His behaviour worsened when he started to send messages “ammu cyg” and “I love you” every day through WhatsApp,” the woman said in her report.
“I advised him to watch his conduct because he is a married man but he never listened and continued harassing me.
“I had to block his number because he kept calling me up to 50 times a day,” she said in a police report.
The woman, who is also a lawyer, claimed that on each occasion, he would cry and give excuses that he was lacking affection and wished to find true love.
“I had, on several occasions, threatened to resign if he continued behaving that way. In December last year, I tendered my resignation through WhatsApp as I could no longer bear his constant sexual harassment.
“He came to my house in Puchong the following day, apologised to me and begged me to stay on.
“He also swore in front of my husband that he needed my help very much and promised to not repeat his actions,” she said.
However, at the end of April, she claimed he kept making video calls to her, showing the Kamasutra book and sending her obscene images of women.
“I lost my patience and immediately informed my husband, who asked me to quickly tender my resignation, which I did in a formal letter to the MP on April 30.
“I had to do so to save my marriage even though I was very much interested in the work I was doing as a parliamentary research officer, where I had helped resolve issues in the constituency within a short span of time,” she said.
The woman said she felt compelled to lodge the report as she was feeling traumatised.
“I hereby ask that the police investigate this criminal act of seducing another man’s wife with the intent of breaking apart a marriage.
“It is very unbecoming of an MP to do such things. There cannot be any compromise on this matter as it involves the integrity and conduct of an MP,” she added.
The woman claimed she had approached PKR party members who advised the MP to stop but the latter had not heeded to advice.
She also filed a police report against a MIC central working committee (CWC) member, whom she accused of abetting the MP.
Meanwhile, the MP, in his May 4 police report, detailed how he suffered from mental torture and trauma due to the woman flooding him with phone calls.
The media has reached out to the MP for comments but without success.
Calls to his mobile phone initially went unanswered. The phone was later switched off.
