It’s not uncommon for celebrities to be accused of some sort of crime or immoral behaviour. However, if found guilty of serious crimes, one must serve their time regardless of their status in society. But in some cases, things aren’t as simple and will need time to gather evidence and convince the court that one is guilty of something.
Motorcyclist influencer Haqiem Stopa has had his fair share of controversies in the past but this time, he might actually be in hot water right now. The TikToker was recently accused of storing pornographic images and videos of his girlfriend. Here’s what happened:
An anonymous woman, who is said to be an ex-lover, filed a report accusing the content creator of storing pornographic materials of her on both his iPhone 13 Pro Max and an iPhone 7 Plus when they were still together. According to the report filed on 9th December (Friday), the influencer apparently also threatened to leak the private photos and videos.
It was reported that the 22-year-old was detained by police the very next day after the police report was filed. The case was brought to court yesterday (Wednesday, 14th December) at Selayang Session and Magistrate Court where the TikToker pleaded not guilty to storing pornographic images and videos on his smart devices. However, if he is found guilty, then he can be sentenced to 3 years in jail or fined or both.
According to The Star, Deputy public prosecutor Anis Farhah Ahmad Hilmi proposed bail of RM4,000 whereas defence lawyer, Mohd Faiz Fahmy Abdul Razak from the National Legal Aid Foundation, proposed a lower bail because the content creator needs to support his aging parents. A lower bail of RM3,000 was then allowed by Magistrate Nur Hafizah Rajuni.
At the time of writing, there has been no official statement from Haqiem Stopa or his legal representatives. According to local reports, the next court hearing is scheduled for 23rd February of next year. After the news broke out, a woman who is said to be his elder sister claimed that the ex-girlfriend is lying and is just seeking out revenge after the two broke up. Watch her statement here:
