Malaysia: Malaysian Police have ruled out the possibility of a plot against state assemblyman, Elizabeth Wong.

The Selangor state executive councillor recently quitted her post after nude photographs of her were circulated.

Police say the case was not a set-up to embarrass and ruin the life of Ms Wong.

Speaking at a news conference in Kuala Lumpur on Friday, the capital police chief urged the media not to speculate and sensationalise the whole episode.

The opposition claims the case is politically motivated, with the goal of discrediting Ms Wong and to undermine the opposition Pakatan Rakyat alliance.

Police have interrogated four journalists from local dailies the Sun and Malay Mail, which first exposed the story.

Ms Wong's ex boyfriend Hilmi Malek - the only suspect of the case - is believed to be in Indonesia.

Ms Wong, 37, who is currently overseas, has since offered to resign as state exco as well as assemblyman.

Kuala Lumpur Police Chief Mohd Sabtu Osman said: "The police have also rejected allegations that someone has set up the recording of the photos. On the contrary, we believe that the photos were taken by someone who knew the complainant.

“What's important is for us to ascertain who recorded the photos, who circulated them and what's the motive behind. We are still investigating."
