KOTA BHARU: A fourth form male student gave the excuse that he just wanted to go out to celebrate New Year 2023 after he was arrested with an 18-year-old teenage girl in a budget hotel room here, this morning.
The two teenagers were arrested by the Kelantan Islamic Religious Affairs Department (JAHEAIK) during Operation Ambang 2023 at 4 o’clock this morning.
Chief Assistant Director of JAHEAIK Sharia Law Enforcement Division, Mohd. Fadzuli Mohd. Zain said, law enforcement officers found the two teenagers suspected to be sitting together in a hotel room in a suspicious situation.
“They have been detained for further investigation in accordance with Section 50 of the Syariah Criminal Code Enactment (I) 2019 for the offense of celibacy which raises suspicion and is contrary to Sharia law.
“The two teenagers can be fined not more than RM5,000 or imprisoned for not more than two years or both if convicted,” he said in a statement today.
In the same development, Mohd. Fadzuli said that a total of 11 women were given notices to attend counseling services for impolite behavior while one case was given a stern warning.
“The main focus of the operation is to monitor and make the community aware of Shariah offences.
“At the same time, JAHEAIK also distributes pamphlets related to sharia offenses to the public in supermarkets and public places to raise awareness among the community,” he said. – MESSENGER
