Medical school isn't entirely about diseases and treatments. One component of forensic medicine is regarding rape. Or sodomy for all that matters. Note the clauses in colours and bolds. :D

Better keep it low, love. Postcards like these, and you're in Malaysia, the Penal Code is gonna getcha.

Have a good day everyone.

interesting to know the FACT in more lawful details.. :)

KY said...

The clauses in colours and bold are kinda make sense for being in this country. But I think they should elaborate more on "Law enforcement" to prevent misuse of power by certain parties. Besides, clauses (d) and (e) under section 375 made me scrath my own head though...so it's an obligation of man to explain on the consequences of the act and whether he is her future husband?

Oh Fuck me...

"Gross Indecency"

Oh they mean scat sex... It's been a while since I heard this...

Laws are so confusing

Medie007 said...

SK, interesting eh? :P

KY, haha. that's an intersting thought tho. as far as i understands, if the man a girl is engaged in sexual activities in has no relationship in the present or the future in any forms, even with consent, the man can be charged if he lured her into thinking that he will marry her.

Jerry, laws have their own language, which is as beautiful as IT language to you and medical language to me. :)
