It will be difficult for Elizabeth Wong from today to face her constituents especially from male species with perverted minds. They may look at her with something sinister. The will look through her, literally.
There will be jokes flying around.
Now Bukit Lanjan already changed to Bukit teLANJANg. It’s a sham and shame.
I believe she should have her privacy protected. Then again, this is Malaysia dear Elizabeth. Anything that can smear you will be used, either you are wrong or right, guilty or innocent.
It is perception, stupid.
And all politicians must not only clean, but must be seen clean. Her former boyfriend or whoever Scum of the earth circulates Elizabeth Wong’s nude photos will not bear the consequences of this betrayal of trust.
Clean or even dirty nude photos are something not yet acceptable by our society at large. And as a victim of circumstances, Elizabeth may face worse situation than Hee, the most hated woman in the country now as Elizabeth Wong is bared for all to see….and have we forgotten about Hee already?
My two fils (cents) only.
'Gross invasion of her privacy'
S Pathmawathy & Rahmah Ghazali Feb 16, 09 2:36pm
Both government and opposition lawmakers have condemned the actions of those who were involved in leaking nude pictures of Bukit Lanjan assemblyperson Elizabeth Wong.
Selangor Mentri Besar Khalid Ibrahim, asked if Wong would be asked for her resignation, said the state government would look into all aspects of the incident before making a decision on the matter.
“Let the police report go through (it) and then we will have our own discussion on the issue,” said Khalid.
“We are open to all possibilities but given the situation it is best to give the victim the right of hearing and we have to listen to her explanation.
”Wong , 37, is also executive councillor in charge of the tourism, consumer affairs and environment portfolio. She lodged a police report last night, urging police to act against those circulating nude photos of her.
Khalid was speaking to reporters today after the opening of the second session of Parliament.
What other parliamentarians said:
Teresa Kok, Seputeh MP and Kinrara assemblypersonI’ve started to worry about being in my own home... I am afraid there could be a camera in my bathroom.I truly feel sad and sorry for (Wong) after she told me about it yesterday.
I had a bad dream last night and I can understand how this kind of thing can haunt a woman. I urge the police to take this matter seriously and I hope the culprit can charged. Why should she resign? Our job is to serve to people. It is not similar to the sex scandal involving (former Health Minister Dr) Chua Soi Lek because he is a married man and he was engaged in something that was morally wrong.
Wong (left) is still single and this incident happened in her private life and in her private home... she did not steal another person's husband or anything of that sort... (In Wong’s case) This was a private activity, she was sleeping while the photographs were taken.
It is an utter betrayal of trust and I believe it is politically motivated. If this is really the act of a former boyfriend, then he has been used to ruin her political career.
Noraini Ahmah, Deputy Human Resources MinisterRegardless of (who it is), we have to have respect their privacy and it has to be protected. We should also educate society to refrain from invading people's privacy.
Still, as a leader, we should always maintain our attitude and behaviour. Once you are a leader you do not have a private life any more, and I believe that anything that we do will be monitored.
R Sivarasa, Subang MPIt is a gross invasion of her privacy. The photos had fallen into the hands of unscrupulous people and they have passed it around.
If she has to resign because of this, everything you do in private will become public.
Syed Hamid Albar, Home Minister
PKR has a lot of problematic people and they should settle their problems first before deciding to become the people's representatives in Parliament or even in the state assembly.Well, if she is the victim...I do not know... she is entitled to make a police report and the police will investigate.
You may take naked photos in your private home, but you have to make sure the the public will not get it. In this case it is too early to say who is responsible.
Nazri Abdul Aziz, Minister in Prime Minister's Department
I sympathise with the executive councillor, this thing should have not happened as she the people's representative and she had been performing her duties.Therefore, to foil what she has done for the community in this manner is not good. But I hope her spirits (remain strong) and she will not bother about what has happened.
