Man fined RM10,000 for sharing obscene pictures on Telegram

KUALA KANGSAR: As a result of making and starting the transmission of obscene image communications through the Telegram application three years ago, a man was fined RM10,000 by the Sessions Court here today.

Judge Rohaida Ishak handed down the sentence to Muhammad Asyraf Ahmad Suhaimi, 28, as a person sued after he pleaded guilty to the act against an individual with the intention of hurting others.

The court ordered OKS to be imprisoned for six months if he fails to pay the fine. OKS pays the fine.

The communication was read at a house at Persiaran Putri 3/16, Taman Chandan Putri 3, here at 10 am, 9 Jan 2020.

The father of a child was charged under Section 233 (1) (a) of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 and can be punished under Section 233 (3) of the same act which provides for a fine of up to RM50,000 or a maximum one year imprisonment or both.

According to the facts of the case, the complainant lodged a complaint with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) after feeling hurt because the communication sent by OKS showed her in a humiliating state.

Acting on the complaint, a team of police and MCMC officers raided a house in Taiping and confiscated items including mobile phones and sim card units and found obscene communications regarding the results of forensic analysis.

The prosecution was handled by MCMC Prosecuting Officer Siti Hajar Sulaiman while OKS was not represented by a lawyer.
