PETALING JAYA - The Home Ministry has sacked an officer who was caught recording an upskirt video of a woman recently.

Deputy Home Minister Datuk Azis Jamman said he was informed of the CCTV recording of the officer secretly taking the video, which is believed to have taken place in a shopping mall in the city.

Azis said he was unaware that the officer had made the indecent recording when the woman carried out an eye examination on him.

"The act is despicable and vile. I have decided to take stern action against the said officer," he said.

Azis said that the officer was sacked as it affected his image and credibility of his position and office as a Deputy Minister.

"I apologise for the action of the said officer and this has nothing to do with any officers in the Deputy Minister's office who serve with me," he said.

Azis did not disclose the name of the officer in his statement.

A CCTV recording of the act, as well as a copy of the police report, has made its way on social media, with many condemning the immoral action.
