PETALING JAYA: The sex video interruption during an online exam involving Form 2 students must be thoroughly investigated by the education ministry and other relevant authorities to ensure that online classes remain a safe platform for students, DAP’s Teo Nie Ching said today.

The former deputy education minister said the ministry should also constantly keep the public informed of the progress of the investigation so that parents will be assured that their children will not be exposed to such incidents in future.

“I urge the education ministry to view this as a serious matter and to address the issue professionally without sweeping it under the carpet as coping with the pandemic indicates a future using platforms like Google Meet regularly,” she said in a statement.

Yesterday, FMT reported that Form 2 students at a secondary school in Kuala Lumpur had a rude shock just as they were sitting down for an exam yesterday when an explicit sex video started playing on their screens.

Speaking to FMT on the condition of anonymity, two parents said the incident happened when the students were taking attendance before a design and technology (RBT) exam conducted via video conferencing platform Google Meet.

“According to parents who were assisting their children, the source of the explicit video and how it came to be in the view of everyone on the platform is unknown. It is not known how this person gained access to the meeting either,” Teo said.

The Kulai MP said almost two years after the pandemic and conducting classes online, incidents like this should not have happened, adding that any content shared must be filtered carefully so that these young impressionable minds are not unnecessarily disturbed.

“The potential for similar incidents to take place again is quite high. Sharing of explicit videos with children may also be an offence under the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017 and we cannot underestimate the severity of the issue,” she said.
