Did nude games woman reveal naked truth?

Was the woman who allegedly took part in the "nude sports games" in Penang arrested or did she voluntary go to the police station to give a statement?

There were conflicting reports as the police said they took a statement from the woman, a music teacher, concerning the event held at the Penang National Park in May.

Superintendent (Supt) Lai Fah Hin told liberal news portal Malaysiakini that the 34-year-old woman was not arrested and that she "came in yesterday to give her statement".

"She is here to help us in our investigations," he was quoted as saying.

She was expected to be released yesterday, the report said.

But a report in The Star said the same woman was picked up from an "undisclosed location on Thursday night".

Supt Lai also said the police are appealing for those involved in the event, and the public with information on the matter, to come forward and assist the police in its probe.

"Hopefully, more will come in later to help us speed up this probe," he said.

About 18 people were involved in a nude sports event that allegedly took place at the Penang National Park on May 31.


A five-minute video clip titled Malaysia Nude Sports Games 2014, which was posted online, showed people engaging in various activities such as nude body painting, Gangnam style horse dance, crab walking and campfire, all in the nude.

The police have recorded statements from 16 witnesses.

The participants are in their 20s to 50s and are said to include seven Malaysians, four Singaporeans, two Myanmar nationals, a Filipino and an Indian national.

The police also released 13 photographs of the participants.
