KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 26: The Information Ministry is investigating claims that pornographic scenes were aired over the RTM2 television channel twice over the past 48 hours.

The shows have prompted a pastor to file a police report twice - one at the Dang Wangi station yesterday and another at Pandan Indah this morning.

Information Minister Tan Sri Khalil Yaakob said the internal investigation would complement the one being carried out by police.

In his police reports, pastor V. Jasoodasan said he saw x-rated scenes over RTM2 when he switched on the television during the wee hours.

Describing the scenes to be graphic, the 41-year-old who lives in Mutiara Court Apartments, Ampang, told Malay Mail there were at least three segments deemed to be X-rated.

The scenes were acted out by Caucasians, Japanese and a black couple.

Ampang police chief Assistant Commissioner Azmi Hashim confirmed the report and said that police would look into the matter.

"We have to determine whether it happened and if so how many areas had received the transmission...whether it was transmitted only to certain areas or nationwide," Khalil told reporters at Putra World Trade Centre today, where he attended the informal Organisation of Islamic Conference summit.

Asked how no one from the television network detected the broadcast, Khalil said: "That is also being investigated."

Actually come to think about it, what's wrong with having porn on tv at the wee hours of the morning. I've lived in Italy for quite a while and there's porn in the middle of the night (when all the kids are asleep of course) And they're the most decent people I know in terms of the respect they have for women for instance, or the fact that they can look at a painting of a naked person and accept it as art and nothing more. And sex is well, just sex.

Well that's me, I'm an advocate of free speech. Apart from anything, think of the VCD sellers (who're gang related and support other vice as well) who will go out of business because a huge clientele would rather sit at home than pay the RM6.

In reality though, I'm sure things are different and Malaysian society is probably not quite so ready.

p.s.... it seems a bit weird that the pastor sat down to watch the whole thing... so much so he could log the entire cast of the show.... if he was so disgusted, why didnt he turn it off immediately?
