No Case Against Idayu

Remember Siti Noor Idayu Abd Moin, the 22-year-old singer who was going to be hauled to court by the Perak Religious Department after she was caught in a raid at a night club last month?
The department (Jaip) accused her of exposing her body and encouraging immoral activities. See my earlier post on her.
Well, Jaip has dropped the case against her.

Here 's the Star story.

IPOH : The Perak Religious Department (Jaip) has dropped the case against singer Siti Noor Idayu Abd Moin for allegedly dressing sexily and encouraging vice by performing at a nightclub.
The 22-year-old singer said the department reached the decision after a meeting on Saturday.
“They decided to close the case because they did not have enough evidence to press charges,” said Siti Noor Idayu.
During the meeting, she said, the department officers advised her to dress properly in future performances.
However, the performer said she would continue to dress the way she always had.
“I don’t think the clothes that I wear are revealing or sexy.
“It’s not like I was wearing a two-piece (bikini). I still know what I can and cannot do,” she said yesterday.
The department detained Siti Noor Idayu and several others during a raid at a nightclub in Tambun on July 3.
Efforts to reach the department for comment failed.

I don't understand the criteria for deciding what's decent and indecent..cause if what the poor girl wears qualifies for the latter than it will definately be much more fruitful and impactful for the religious department to look no further than 'malaysian tatler' to compile a list of potential detainees amongst the reach and famous whose plunging Versace etc make for better viewing.
