Grilling continues for sex bloggers

(The Star) – After a nine-hour questioning, the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission still wants to keep grilling sex bloggers Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee.

MACC’s Advisor of Strategic Communications Sheikh Raffie Abdul Rahman said that the investigations were still ongoing.

“We want to wrap things quickly but I think it will take two to three days to wrap things up,” he said.

When asked why two investigators from the police came and escorted the two to another location last night, Sheikh said that he had no idea.

The Star Online contacted the couple known as ‘Alvivi’ but they could not be reached for comments.

When asked if they wanted to apologise to the Malaysian public yesterday, Alvin said:

“We have apologised on YouTube. We were sincere,” said Alvin while he was walking towards his car with Vivien while escorted by the two investigators. 

Before they posted a video apology two days ago, they were unrepentant in their tweets.

Last Thursday, they uploaded on their Facebook page a picture depicting them eating bak kut teh and describing it as fragrant, delicious and appetising, with a Selamat Berbuka Puasa greeting.

They could be prosecuted for displaying offensive pictures and words under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act.

The offence was punishable with a fine of up to RM50,000 or a one-year prison term, or both.
