Worried VIPs stock up on anti-spy devices
Wednesday, 09 January 2008
(New Straits Times) – The latest must-have among politicians, corporate big-wigs and others anxious about their privacy is cheap and fits snugly into one’s palm.
Eight days after a minister admitted that a sex DVD featured him, anti-spy electronic devices are being sold like hot cakes, especially to people in power.
Former health minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek’s revelation that he and a woman had been secretly filmed while having sex has led to many trying to avoid a similar fate.
More than 1,000 such devices that can detect hidden CCTV cameras and handphones, have been sold here since news of Dr Chua’s indiscretions made headlines.
It is learnt that several prominent businessmen and politicians who visit China regularly on work or on holiday have been using the device in their bedrooms.
Even a minister has bought a unit “as it is very difficult to identify one’s enemies, especially in politics”.
“People who are out to topple you in politics will resort to anything including recording or filming who you see and what you say,” he said.
His RM160 unit will emit a beep if it detects electronic devices such as CCTV cameras and hidden handphone usage within a radius of 10 metres.
The minister, who did not want to be identified, said many were flocking to outlets selling electronic items to buy such devices.
The device which the minister uses to sweep a room is a little longer than a cigarette lighter and can detect any RF frequency device within 3GHz.
The person who sold the device to the minister said he had run out of stock due to overwhelming demand.
“I do not have any more in stock due to heavy demand from people, including politicians, corporate figures and women,” he said, adding that he was accepting orders for the device.
The device is also available at popular online auction websites like www.lelong.com.my.
A check by the New Straits Times revealed a number of people selling such devices in the past week.
