However, Edi has been unreachable since his public apology yesterday

According to Lim, Edi has turned off his mobile phone since yesterday. As a result, all offers for him have been put on hold.

"If he does not want to help himself, how does he expect people to help him?" Lim was quoted as saying by Malay Mail. 

Edi did not show up at the police station today, where he was supposed to have his statement taken

Section 509 of the Penal Code lists offences involving words or gestures used to intentionally insult the modesty of a person. If convicted, Edi face a maximum of five years in jail, a fine, or both.
