Police this month denied allegations of torture and cruelty,
claiming that detainees were forced to perform sex shows for police guards
as part of a new sex education programme for prisoners. The allegations
emerged in the trial of Tenaganita director Irene Fernandez when witnesses
testified that detainees were stripped naked and regularly forced to masturbate
each other, perform oral sex and smear sperm on their faces while an audience

the sexual acts were kicked and beaten, with one detainee dying from his

|"We are disappointed that what we initiated as a
useful sex education programme for detainees was misconstrued as torture
and cruelty on our part," said a police spokesman who refused to be
named."We just wanted to highlight to prisoners the ills of masturbation

He added that the programme was painstakingly developed using techniques
pioneered while extracting voluntary confessions from suspects in the Anwar

kiri, kanan pun boleh.'"

The supporter who refused to be named was commenting on the police report
lodged by the MAS employees against Sanusi for allegedly slapping and kicking
them at the KL International Airport this month.
'They were 'safe and sound' when Sanusi left the airport,"
the supporter claimed. 'I have no doubt their wounds were self-inflicted.
Either that, or Sansui was provoked. I heard them call him a father of
dogs just because he made some obscene hand gestures at them."
Police are investigating the assault and have called on
the services of former police chief Rahim Noor to conduct an independent
From previous experience, even if convicted, it is not
expected that Sanusi's jail term would exceed a couple of months.
