GEORGE TOWN: Nine people, including a foreigner, were freed on police bail on Tuesday (Aug 19), in connection with a so-called “nude sport” activity held at the Teluk Kampi Beach in the Penang National Park.

Six others - a Singaporean, a Philippine national, a Myanmar couple and two Malaysians - are being sought to facilitate police investigations into the activities.

Penang CID chief SAC Mazlan Kesah said the police were waiting for information from Interpol on the whereabouts of the four foreigners.

A video of the "nude sport" titled “Nude Party in Teluk Bahang, Penang” became the talk of the town when it was uploaded on a social media site, depicting nine nude men and six women painting their bodies, dancing and participating in sport events at the beach.

To date, the police have recorded statements from 29 people to facilitate investigations into the case.
