Married couple sues over wrongful khalwat raid

KUALA LUMPUR:  A married couple is suing Jawi and six others for allegedly wrongfully arresting them for khalwat.

Self-employed Mohd Ridhuan Giman, 34, and his wife Siti Sarah Maulad Abdullah, 26, filed the claim at the High Court civil registry on Friday.

The couple say they were wrongfully detained during a Jawi raid on a budget hotel on January 8, despite showing proof of marriage.

They are suing for wrongful confinement, trespass, violation of privacy, abuse of office and violation of fundamental liberties under the Federal Constitution.
