Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar expressed sympathy and assured the public that the police would conduct a thorough investigation into the matter.

He said at present, it was still too early to say who was responsible for taking or circulating the pictures.

“She has lodged a report with the police, let them investigate,” reports The Star.

Puteri Umno chief Datuk Noraini Ahmad said that she had not seen the pictures, and that the assembyman’s privacy should be respected.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said he sympathised with the Selangor exco member.

“This should not have happened and I hope she can find the strength in herself to endure this and ignore it,” he said.
