0 SPAD Condemns Taxi Driver Forced Female Passenger To Perform Sex Act @SPADchannel

As reported by The Star, here, there was an incident whereby a 62-year-old taxi driver allegedly forced a female customer to perform sexual act on him in Taman Seri Petaling in Sentul, here, on Jan 28. In the 10.30am incident, the 22-year-old victim had just taken the taxi to go to work, before its driver suddenly put a knife on its dashboard.

City Criminal Investigation Department acting chief Assistant Commissioner Khairi Ahrasa said the suspect, known to the victim as she had used his taxi service previously, then asked the victim to put her hand on his private parts. When she declined to do so, the suspect took the victim’s hand and forced her to hold his private parts. The nightmarish episode ended when they reached the woman’s house. 

He warned her to keep mum about the incident as she scrambled out of the taxi. He did not charge her for the ride. It was learnt that the suspect had allegedly forced the victim to masturbate him. Khairy said the victim was traumatised by the incident, and only lodged a report at the Kepong police station on Sunday.

Meanwhile, in a statement received today, the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) said they have tracked down the suspect and is working with the police on the case. SPAD Chief Executive Officer, En Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal said they will revoke taxi driver's licence if he is found guilty of the offence. The latest update from Manager, Corporate Division, SPAD, Noor Hisham Mohd Taha, the taxi driver had just been arrested by the Police. The following is the full media release from SPAD:

Kuala Lumpur, 25 February 2014
Referring to The Star’s article published 25 February 2014, entitled ‘Nightmare ride with pervert cabbie’, Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (S.P.A.D) wishes to inform members of the public that investigations have begun on the alleged sexual assault that involved a taxi driver.  S.P.A.D. has tracked down the driver and he has been called in for investigation.  S.P.A.D. will also work closely with PDRM in this investigation. 
S.P.A.D. stands firm in condemning all forms of harassments and if found guilty, the taxi driver runs the risk of having his licence revoked under the Land Public Transport Act 2010. 
“Anyone found guilty of the alleged offence is not fit to be a taxi driver and is a disgrace to the profession,” said  S.P.A.D.’s Chief Executive Officer,  En. Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal.  He added that S.P.A.D. is working hard to improve the taxi industry and taxi drivers demonstrating negative behaviour which was against the law or breached licensing conditions would be weeded out and these drivers punished for their abhorrent behaviour. 
S.P.A.D. urges victims of any types of harassment to immediately come forward and lodge a complaint directly with S.P.A.D., via the SPAD Aduan Hotline (1-800-88-7723), through email (aduan@spad.gov.my), via Twitter @aduanSPAD or on the SPAD official Facebook page.
