INTIMATE PICTURES: Forensics cops visit Wong's house - Sun

By Charles Ramendran

PETALING JAYA (Feb 18, 2009): Forensics police today visited the Bukit Gasing home of Bukit Lanjan assemblywoman Elizabeth Wong as part of investigations into her report that intimate pictures of her sleeping had been circulated.

At about noon, a team from the federal police forensics department went to Wong's house where they were believed to positively ascertain the locations where the two photographs they have in their possession could have been taken.

The photographs were reportedly taken with a handphone at her home.

Wong had in her earlier statement refused to speculate on who took them, although some reports had linked them to her ex-boyfriend who is also a Parti Keadilan Rakyat member.

Selangor police chief DCP Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said Petaling Jaya police will hand over the investigation to Kuala Lumpur police in a day or two as the assemblyman's house comes under the jurisdiction of Brickfields police.

On the progress of the probe, he said police are trying to trace Wong's ex-boyfriend to record his statement and are checking with the Immigration Department if he is still in the country or had left for overseas.

He also warned those who have the said photos to either hand them over to police or to destroy them.

"If we catch anyone distributing or having these photos in their possession, we will not hesitate to take stern action against them," he said.

Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Arjunaidi Mohamed said to date police have recorded a statement from Wong and four journalists from two English newspapers who first carried the story on the photos
