Elizabeth Wong's Ex-Boyfriend Sought
MALAYSIAN police are seeking the ex-boyfriend of opposition politician Elizabeth Wong after photos of her in the nude were circulated.
He has been identified as Mr Hilmi Malek (above), 32, who worked as a personal assistant to lawmaker PKR's Hee Loy Sian for nine months after last year's March general election.
According to the Malay Mail, Mr Hilmi has been missing since last Saturday, with unconfirmed reports saying he has left the country.
The paper quoted Mr Hilmi's colleagues as saying they were aware of his relationship with Miss Wong and that the latter had revealed that they had split up recently.
Selangor police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said they had received two nude photographs, and a CD, of the 37-year-old Wong from a Malay Mail journalist.
The photos, which have been circulating since last week, reportedly show Miss Wong partially covered by a sarong. It is not known how the private snaps ended up in public circulation. She is now on leave.
Trojan Horses in Pakatan Rakyat
Prominent blogger and opposition MP Jeff Ooi wrote on his blog that this would be the second time a politician's aide was involved in such a scandal, and suggested they were 'trojan horses'.
He cited the earlier example of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim's aide Saiful Bukhari Azlan, who had accused Mr Anwar of having sodomised him.
'I believe there is a dire need for all Pakatan Rakyat leaders and elected representatives to beware of trojan horses in our earnest deeds to recruit new blood and party cadres,' he wrote.
