10 couples held for khalwat

January 02, 2006. The Star Online

JOHOR BARU: Officers from the Johor Religious Department 'gate-crashed' the New Year celebrations of 10 couples suspected of committing khalwat.

One of the couples turned out to be mutes and the officers had a tough time trying to get them to open the room door during the 11pm raid in Taman Maju Jaya.

The woman was covered with a blanket while the man was wearing shorts.

The couple, aged 19 and 20 respectively, failed to produce a marriage certificate.

The others detained included a Singaporean man and five Indonesians. They were aged between 19 and 54.

In other crime-prevention raids, police detained two people for unruly behaviour at Danga Bay and Jalan Abdullah Tahir.

Two others were picked up for drink-driving.

Officers from the Johor Religious Department....

This office should be shut down, and all officers should be dismissed.

This step would help Malaysia to save some money and to be respected as a 'normal thinking' country with a 'normal' government within the international community.

As a fact, Malaysia is a 'Muslim country' and I am worried about the future, if this continues like that.

Khalwat is when non-muhrim (Muhrim = married or relative) persons of opposite gender are in isolation (behind closed doors) together. It is a legal offence and MUSLIMS (including foreigners) can be charged in the Malaysian Syariah court. Might be punishable up to 6 months in prison.

Non-Muslims cannot be charged in the Malaysian Syariah court, but these religious department officers are allowed to disturb you and to check, if you are really not a Muslim...at 11PM in your hotel room...

11:00 pm, if I am ever home that early I would invite them in and insist to share a bottle of whisky.

To honour the friendship, they must drink....
(non) fcking bastards.

She committed the offence with Noor Eddie Putera Noordin at his apartment at 21-O-G, Block 21, SD Apartment Meranti, PJU 9, Bandar Sri Damansara, at 10.10pm on Dec 5.

Noor Eddie also pleaded guilty.

Under the Selangor Syariah Criminal Enactment 1992, Nurfarahin, 44, and Noor Eddie, 39, are liable to a maximum RM3,000 fine or maximum two years’ jail, or both.

Maimun Mohd from the State Religious Department (Jais) prosecuted

A team from Jais raided the apartment following a tip-off and found the couple in the apartment. Both were fully dressed.

Checks revealed that the two were not related or married at that time.

In mitigation, counsel Rubiah Jaafar pleaded for leniency saying both her clients regretted their action.

She said Nurfarahin and Noor Eddie got married on April 29, and their marriage certificate was issued by the Federal Territory Religious Department.

Judge Ghazali Ahmad fixed Sept 14 for sentencing.

TV personality fined RM2,850 for khalwat

15 Sep 2006.
New Straits Times

KUALA LUMPUR: Television personality Nurfarahin Jamsari was yesterday fined RM2,850 or seven months’ jail by the Lower Syariah Court for committing khalwat (close proximity) last December.

Her businessman partner, Noor Eddie Putera Noordin, 39, whom she married on April 29 this year, was fined the same amount.

The two, wearing matching white attire, arrived together in a Volvo at 2.10pm but did not get out of the car to avoid photographers.

However, as proceedings were about to start at 2.30pm, they rushed into the court.

On Aug 24, both of them pleaded guilty to committing the offence at Noor Eddie’s apartment at 21-O-G, Block 21, SD Apartment Meranti, PJU 9, Bandar Sri Damansara, at 10.10pm on Dec 5 last year.

Nurfarahin, 44, was host of several TV3 programmes including Majalah Tiga, Nona and Wanita Hari Ini.

Judge Ghazali Ahmad, in sentencing, said the court was satisfied with their pleas as they had done so voluntarily.

He said Nurfarahin should not have committed the indecent act as she was someone else’s wife then.

He said adultery was a major sin in Islam as she should have been with her husband and family members.

"In sentencing, the court takes into consideration their mitigation and facts of the case," he said, adding that being Muslims and adults they should set a good example.

Noor Eddie and Nurfarahin paid the fines and were seen holding hands while leaving the court and walking to their car.

Maimun Mohd from the State Religious Department prosecuted, while Rubiah Jaafar represented the couple.

Quite a few of the posters here, me included, would end up spending the rest of our life in jail if we were Malays...  ;)
