Fined for flashing at cop at police station

By MARTIN CARVALHO

MALACCA - Exposing your private part in public is an offence but flashing it to a policewoman at a police station is really going the extra length to court trouble.

This is what 56-year-old stall worker Sulaiman Mohd Sultan found out at a magistrate's court here yesterday when he was fined a total of RM600(S$247) after pleading guilty to the indecent act.

He was said to have committed the offence at about 3pm on Jan 24 at the Melaka Tengah district police station.

On that day, Sulaiman had gone to the police station to lodge a report against his employer.

The information counter was manned by a 51-year-old policewoman.

Sulaiman, however, was told that there was insufficient information for a report to be made.

The policewoman advised him to return again later.

Unhappy, the man turned around but just as he was about to leave, he unzipped his pants and exposed himself to the policewoman.

Her shrieks led to his apprehension.

Earlier, magistrate Muhamad Faizal Ismail asked Sulaiman whether he had anything to say before sentence was meted against him.

"I would like to be set free," Sulaiman said, drawing laughter from those in the court.

Charged with two counts of public indecency, he was given the maximum fine of RM500 or 15 days' jail in default for the first charge under the Police Act and the maximum fine of RM100 or in default 10 days' jail under the Minor Offences Act.

Sulaiman, who was unrepresented, failed to pay the fines.
