SHAH ALAM, Feb 24 — The Malaysian founder of the Sugarbook dating platform claimed trial at the Magistrates Court here today to the charge of publishing statements conducive to public mischief on social media earlier this month.

Chan Eu Boon, 34, was accused of committing the offence in a post uploaded to the TechNave news portal at around 10am on February 10.

According to the charge sheet, Chan allegedly published a post titled 'Top 10 Sugar Baby Universiti in Malaysia' with the intention to incite fear and public anxiety in the public, at the same time abetting others to commit a criminal offence against public order.

The charge was framed under Section 505(b) of the Penal Code that covers the offence of making statements with intent to likely cause fear or alarm to the public.

A conviction could result in imprisonment for a term of not more than two years or a fine or both.

Chan entered his plea before magistrate Sabreena Bakar @ Bahari.

Lawyers Foong Cheng Leong, T Shashi Devan and Low Li Qun represented Chan while deputy public prosecutor Aliff Ashraf prosecuted.

Sabreena then fixed bail at RM10,000 for the charge with one surety.

Controversial data released by Sugarbook had claimed the majority of its users were young Malaysian varsity students which listed the spread of local institutions where these sugar babies are enrolled but also how Malaysia is home to more than 300,000 individuals offering paid companionship.

The revelation eventually led to public outrage, with many questioning and condemning the immoral and exploitative nature in the “compensated dating” promoted by the app.

Several police reports were then lodged about the claims.


kt notes:

While I'm personally neutral on the 'Sugar babe' issue, I am bemused by the police charge that Chan Eu Boon "... published a post titled 'Top 10 Sugar Baby Universiti in Malaysia' with the intention to incite fear and public anxiety in the public, at the same time abetting others to commit a criminal offence against public order." 

Indeed, I like to see the police convincing the court that Chan Eu Boon had the intention to incite fear and anxiety in what must be the World's most 'sensitive' public, especially the Malay-Muslim community who would be most 'sensitive' and easily 'hurt' by any sort of comments WHEN IT SUITS the politicians to say so.


I personally see this as mollifying a certain crowd who (it staggers me to think about it) would be indifferent to child brides, incest, paedophilia, statutory rapes and regular "visits" across the borders.

Nur Fitri Azmeer Nordin, who was a third-year student at Imperial College London when he pleaded guilty to 13 offences including the possession and production of child pornography, was offered another chance to complete his studies in any MARA institution of his choosing upon his release.

He was then secretly brought home to Malaysia after serving his shortened sentence in 2015.

The professor, whom Nur Fitri works closely with, said that he "does not have a problem" with the convicted pedophile.

"I admit he is very smart. In terms of percentage of genius... I would say he makes the top five percent."

According to mStar, when Nur Fitri first enrolled in the university, the professor told him to start fresh.

"I told him directly, I know his story. He told me that what he did was not wrong," he said.



  1. To prove incitement of fear and public anxiety is very easy in Malaysia. Apa susah sangat?

    Just refer to the dozens of polis reports filed. There will be witnesses lining up to testify in court that they could not sleep and were afraid to attend classes at the universities where these sugar babes were students. They were anxious and fearful that they would be enticed by these sugar babes.

  2. Sugarbook guy must understand this is not Westminster.

    Now we admire Beijing.
    His arrest is Beijing-style.

    1. "Not Westminster"??

      Mfer, what about Edward Norton, Julian Assange?

      Ooop… it's demoNcratic style mah!

  3. child brides, incest, paedophilia, statutory rapes and regular "visits" across the borders is cultural, n sort of civilization.

    1. Wow!!


      What an excuse!

      U should get a full bottle of Jack Daniel in the next dangdut escapism.

  4. These hypocritical Malay/Muslims always see the mote in the other person's eye but neglect the beam in their eye.
