Muda deputy president Amira Aisya Abd Aziz today lodged a police report over lewd comments made towards her Twitter post two days ago following her participation in a protest.

In her police report, Amira claimed the person had made several rude comments about her breasts on Twitter on Saturday.

She said she accepts any constructive criticism towards the Turun movement and its gathering, but sexual harassment is absolutely unacceptable.

“For me, if the comments are in (the) form of criticisms, I will accept it. But comments in the form of sexual harassment will definitely have to be reported.

“More women will be facing the same thing, especially amid the sexual harassment bill that is being debated, we have to tell the people that this is a big issue,” she told reporters outside the Dang Wangi police station.

Amira who is also Puteri Wangsa assemblyman said the account made more than one sexual remark under her video that was uploaded after #Turun protest last Saturday.

She also urged the government to expedite the Anti-Sexual Harassment Bill 2011 that was approved in the Dewan Rakyat on July 20.
