Agus denies sexually harassing Wahab on boat and in hotel

A source says former J-Kom chief Agus Yusoff answered some 70 questions when quizzed by cops on Abdul Wahab Abdul Kadir Jilani’s police report.

(FMT) – Agus Yusoff, the former department for community communications (J-Kom) director-general, has been accused of sexually harassing Abdul Wahab Abdul Kadir Jilani, an employee with the department, on two occasions.

“Once on a boat, and the other incident at a hotel in Sarawak,” the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told FMT.

However, Agus, who stepped down as J-Kom director-general in November, denied the claims.

The source also said Agus had cooperated with police by answering some 70 questions when he was interrogated at the Kajang police station.

“The investigation focused on Wahab’s report,” the source said.

On Dec 1, it was revealed that Wahab had accused Agus of sexually harassing him, with Wahab claiming in a police report that the incident took place at a hotel in Bintulu on Oct 21.

The two men were previously at the centre of a lewd conversation, a recording of which made rounds on social media.

They later appeared at a press conference together, with Agus claiming that the video that went viral had been doctored, while Wahab, an assistant community district officer with J-Kom, alleged that he had been pressured to record a call with Agus.

Earlier today, it was reported that Agus, who was accompanied by his lawyer, Zaflee Pakwanteh, arrived at the police station at about 11am and left some two hours later.

He refused to meet with reporters there.

Police are investigating the case for use of criminal force with intent to outrage one’s modesty and committing gross indecency.
