|Police seize porn videos sold to students
|Police raided numerous houses in Ipoh after
receiving tip-offs that children in the homes were watching pornographic
videos. The raid was conducted following news reports this September that
a syndicate in Ipoh was selling pornographic VCDs for to students for as
cheap as RM1 each.
However, the students were released after it was revealed
that the videos were merely recordings of televised speeches by Prime Minister
Mahathir Mohamad explaining why he sacked former Deputy Prime Minister
Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
"We received reports that children were watching
videos of a man talking about masturbating, inserting penises into anuses,
group sex and other sexual activities," said a police spokesman who
refused to be named. "It was even reported that videos featured the
man making rude hand gestures and talking about 'depan, belakang, kiri,
kanan pun boleh' "
"We had no idea it was just a video recording of
TV3 news interviews with the Prime Minister," the spokesman said apologetically..
|Apology from the Editor
'Not The New Straits Times' would like to apologise
to its loyal readers for its apparent disappearance over the past two months.
No, it was not because our KDN was withdrawn by the Home Minister - for
one thing, we don't need a bloody KDN, so he can shove that piece of paper
up where the sun doesn't shine. The 'Not The New Straits Times'
team has actually been busy helping out in the production of 'Face Off:
A Malaysian Reformasi Diary (1998-1999)' by Sabri Zain (he's the serious-looking
guy on the sleeve of back inside cover). More details about this book can
be found at http://www.bigo.com.sg/theshop/books/faceoff.html
As work on this project has been completed, normal publication
of 'Not The New Straits Times' will resume henceforth. So if you
want some serious comedy, cancel that subscription to 'Wawasan Merdeka'
and carry on supporting 'Not The New Straits Times'!
