Eleanor Hawkins, a 24-year-old Southampton University graduate from Derby, has been arrested for posing nude on a sacred Malaysian mountain. Also arersted are: 23-year-old Canadian Lindsey Peterson and his sister Danielle, 22, 23-year-old Dutch man Dylan Snel and 33-year-old Canadian Emil Kaminski.

Miss Hawkins and her pals face three months in prison for posing naked atop the 13,435-foot Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain between the Himalayas and New Guinea. They posted their naked photos on social media. Their guide complained. The police acted, stating:

“Around 7am, while the group were on their way back from the summit, they started to strip off their clothes – ignoring their guide.  The guide warned them not to do so, but they replied: ‘Stupid man, go to hell.’ He could not stop them. They even took a group photo and a selfie. Then they dressed and returned to the backpacker lodge.”

The nudity was linked with a subsequent earthquake on Mt Kinabalu which left 18 people dead. The bad housing and poverty are not reasons why people died.
