PETALING JAYA: Police yesterday interviewed two journalists at The Malay Mail offices at Redberry City in Section 13 in connection to the allegations made by a 38-year-old Sabahan housewife who claimed she was forced to have sex with strangers while her husband watched the acts "live" on webcam via Skype voice-and-video Internet service.
Editor-at-large Frankie D'Cruz and assistant news editor Pearl Lee, who broke the story on Monday, had their statements recorded by KL police's Sexual Crimes Division investigation officer ASP Iszraliyahna Ishak.
D'Cruz handed over a thumb-drive containing video clips of several sexual encounters by the woman to Iszraliyahna.
The Sabahan had previously handed over the video clips to D'Cruz to facilitate The Malay Mail's checks into her allegations when she shared her story with them.
Police will investigate the video clips based on the two reports lodged on Monday by the woman in which she claimed her husband, a bank telemarketer whom she married when she was 25, forced her to have sex with foreigners in hotels since 2007.
Her report will be investigated under Section 377D of the Penal Code for outrages on decency which states: "Any person who, in public or private, commits, or abets the commission of, or procures or attempts to procure the commission by any person of, any act of gross indecency with another person, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to two years."
On Monday ,The Malay Mail front-paged the woman's "traumatic" relationship with her spouse who, over the past four years, forced her into the sexual encounters.
The woman, a mother-of-three, claimed her Sabahan husband was angry their relationship apparently "lacked excitement and sexual intimacy", and wanted her to spice it up through such acts.
She said her partners, aged 27 to 48, were aware her husband was watching and some had even chatted with him over Skype.
The woman approached The Malay Mail about three weeks ago to help her "rein in" her life as well as keep her husband away from her and their children.
