KUALA LUMPUR: An 18-year-old school leaver has claimed that a medium molested her when she met him last year.
The teenager, who wanted to be known only as Leong, said the 57-year-old medium touched her private part while they sat in his car, where she had met him after her tuition class at a centre in Damai Perdana last October.
Leong and her mother, only known as Tan, shared the experience at a press conference held by the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department in Ampang.
“The medium told my daughter that he is a god from heaven and came to this world to look for her, who was one of his wives before his ‘rebirth’,” said Tan, 45.
She said that on April 10, she went through her daughter’s phone to read her messages and found out that her eldest child had been molested by the medium, known only as Low.
“I read in their Facebook Messenger conversation where Low said he touched her private part and asked her whether it hurt,” Tan said.
Leong was introduced to the medium, who is actually a recycled goods collector, via her classmate, whom he claimed was his “queen” in his former life.
Low intimidated Leong into keeping their conversation a secret from her mother by making her believe that he had the gift of clairvoyance, and knew her every move.
Tan, a single mother of four, and her daughter sought the assistance of department head Datuk Seri Michael Chong as they had not heard anything from the police after lodging a report at the Kajang district police headquarters on April 15.
“We are looking into it and I have deployed the help of the MCA legal advisor as the case involves many legal aspects,” said Chong.
Legal advisor Leong Pak Yiew said the case falls under Section 354 of the Penal Code, which deals with assault or use of criminal force on a person with intent to outrage modesty. – Star
