SHAH ALAM – The Shah Alam High Court rejected the police’s remand request for the founder of Sugarbook as the man is ready to cooperate in the police investigation.
The 34 year-old man arrived at the court complex at 10.10am with his hands cuffed. He was escorted by the police to the High Court for the remand order request, to assist in the police investigation.
However, the Deputy Registrar of the High Court, Noorasyikin Sahat rejected the request as the man was ready to give his full cooperation to the investigation.
The man was arrested at a condominium in Kuala Lumpur at around 4.30 pm yesterday after the police received 74 reports nationwide. The reports were lodged over allegations that students from higher learning institutions in the Klang Valley are using the mobile application to seek sugar daddy.
The founder of the application was represented by three lawyers namely, Foong Cheng Leong, T. Shashi Devan and Low Li Qun.
One of the lawyer said that the remand order against his client was not needed as all information needed by the police can be accessed via the application online.
He said, the application has been blocked by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and there is no need for the police to get a remand order on the man.
The police are investigating the case under Section 505 (b), Section 372 (1)(d)/ 372B of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1988. –MalaysiaGazette
