I am putting up this piece of news from The Star, Metro North just in case all Malaysians missed this quote from the Penang Municipal Council president Datuk Abu Bakar Hassan.
Itâ€™s the sexy dress, says council president
PENANG: If the dress was not sexy, the incident would not have happened.
This was Penang Municipal Council president Datuk Abu Bakar Hassan response to a complaint that a closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera in the City Hall was zooming in on the thighs of women journalists instead of council proceedings.
Abu Bakar was unhappy over the sexy attire worn by some women reporters during council meetings.
On Friday, a reporter spotted the image of a woman’s thighs on the CCTV monitor in the control room and alerted other journalists who complained to council secretary Ooi Chin Loo.
New Straits Times journalist Melissa Darlyne Chow, 23, who lodged a police report yesterday, said she was surprised by Abu Bakar sexist statement.
“He’s implying that I was not properly attired and that I deserved the unwanted attention,” she said.
State Local Government committee chairman Datuk Dr Teng Hock Nan said he was awaiting a report from the council.
Well, I guess I don’t have anything to say. *speechless* I prefer to let my dear readers sum it up. And I hope all the gung-ho women politicians will pursue this case and screw whoever blame women for their own male lusty actions.
You can see his pic here. The first one on the left, top corner. I don’t want to pollute my blog with neanderthal faces.
