If you impersonate a woman, we will arrest you

THE Sabah Islamic Affairs Department stopped a transvestite fashion show held at an entertainment centre in a shopping mall in Kota Kinabalu.

Harian Metro reported that the show, called “Pink Tiffany”, had 19 contestants who were dressed skimpily.

A total of 14 were Muslim.

The department's religious enforcement deputy head Khamis Jamil said all of them were taken to the Kota Kinabalu police headquarters to have their statements recorded.

Khamis said the 14 were detained under Section 92 of the state Syariah Criminal Enactment 1995 for impersonating women.
