“Don’t Only Blame The Home Ministry Officer” For Recording An Upskirt Video – Netizen Says Victim Is To Be Blamed For Wearing Short Skirt ?!

In case you missed it, there was a recent uproar about a Home Ministry officer who was caught recording an upskirt video of a woman when he accompanied the Deputy Home Minister Datuk Azis Jamman to an optometry shop at Solaris Dutamas, Kuala Lumpur.

In a Facebook post, Azis said that he has been informed about the CCTV footage and a police report made by the woman about his officer sneakily recording an upskirt video of the woman who was carrying out an eye examination on Azis.

He said that during that time, he wasn’t aware that the officer was taking an indecent video of the lady but he takes this issue very seriously.

“The act is despicable and vile. I have decided to take stern action against the said officer.”

Prior to this, the 30-year-old victim had already lodged a police report after she found  out through the shop’s CCTV footage that the man was recording from under her skirt. She said,

“I felt uncomfortable with the man’s actions. When I was about to turn to the screen beside me, I noticed the man was holding a mobile phone and recording.”

In the CCTV footage, the officer can be seen shifting his seat so that he is closer to the lady in order to take the indecent recording!

The Deputy Home Minister has since terminated the officer for his inappropriate behavior.

However, a netizen who seems to be hiding behind a fake moniker and account posted his opinion about the issue and drew the ire of others when they saw his post.

This is because he blamed the victim and said that it was her fault for wearing a short skirt.

He said in his post,

“If the lady did not wear a short skirt, this wouldn’t have been an issue at all. Don’t just blame the officer. Find out why he took the upskirt video first. He did it because the lady was wearing a short skirt which provoked him to do so. It’s not that I’m supporting the officer’s actions but do investigate first before giving your emotional opinions.”

Some of the comments are,
