PETALING JAYA: A 28-year-old man pleaded guilty to insulting the modesty of another man by spying on the victim as he was moving his bowels in the toilet of a petrol station in Sungai Way.
Sweepin Sahirati was fined RM100, in default two months’ imprisonment, by the magistrate’s court for insulting the modesty of a 27-year-old man near Jalan PJS 8/9, Sungai Way, last month.
According to the facts of the case, the victim entered the toilet about 2.40pm.
While doing his “business”, the victim who is a clerk glanced down and noticed the reflection of the accused in a puddle of water.
The accused was seen masturbating outside the toilet door, while peeping in through a gap in the toilet door.
The victim confronted Sweepin and the latter admitted to peeping into the toilet stall.
Sweepin, who is from Sabah, was charged under Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955, which carries a maximum penalty of RM100 and six months’ jail term.
Sweepin, who was unrepresented, pleaded for a lenient sentence, but deputy public prosecutor Hairuliqram Hairuddin pressed for a deterrent sentence.
