Updated, taken from The Star:
PETALING JAYA: Outspoken Bukit Lanjan assemblyman Elizabeth Wong lodged a police report at the Damansara police station here Sunday night over nude pictures of her that have been circulating online and via MMS.
Early unconfirmed reports say that the pictures were taken without her consent.
OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed a report was lodged and that police were investigating.
The pictures are believed to have been taken using a handphone, possibly before the general election last March.
On Mondat morning, Wong’s staff had locked the doors to her office at the state assembly building in Shah Alam.
Her special assistant Chua Yee Ling said the assemblyman was at a meeting and would be releasing an official statement on the issue on Monday afernoon.
Wong won the Bukit Lanjan seat with a majority of over 5,000, the second largest majority won by PKR state assembly candidates in Selangor.
She was later appointed a member of the Selangor state executive council, in charge of Tourism, Consumer Affairs and the Environment. She is also the information chief of the Women’s wing of PKR and of her division Petaling Jaya Utara.
As at press time, she had not commented on the issue on her blog.
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 16 – The salacious side of Malaysian politics has once again been exposed after the circulation of nude pictures said to be that of Selangor state executive councillor and PKR politician Elizabeth Wong.
The photographs are believed to have been taken by a former boyfriend without her consent.
PKR and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) politicians are now scrambling to limit the damage which will be caused by the circulation of the photographs.
The unmarried Wong, 37, is expected to be issuing a public statement on the matter today. She is also understood to have lodged a police report.
Copies of them photographs were sent to a number of newspapers last week, in what appears to be an orchestrated attempt to smear her image.
The circulation of the photographs comes as the PR alliance is coming under more pressure from the Barisan Nasional (BN).
After the toppling of the PR Perak state government recently, the Selangor state government is also said to be under the threat of defections.
