Girl, 17, detained to assist with investigations into discovery of baby girl's body

 

BUTTERWORTH (Bernama): A Form Five student has been detained to assist investigations into the discovery of the body of a baby girl found in a rubbish bin in the vicinity of ​​Flat B4 Taman Bagan here on Saturday (Oct 23).

The 17-year-old girl was taken to the Seberang Jaya Hospital (HSJ) at 6pm today after her neighbours found her bleeding and in pain at her house.

According to police sources, the teenager admitted to giving birth to the baby girl on Friday (Oct 22) evening, and that she had a sexual relationship with her boyfriend, who is also 17.

"According to the girl, she gave birth to her child while in the toilet, and during the incident, there was only her six-year-old sister at home, while her father was out at work, and her mother lives separately as her parents are divorced.

"The teenager claimed that she believed the child was dead when she delivered, as the baby did not cry or make any noise. She panicked and wrapped the baby in a cloth and threw it into a rubbish bin located near the flat," the source told Bernama today.

The source said the girl's father also did not suspect anything, because his daughter did not show any changes, and was often at home during the movement control order.

The girl's neighbour, who found her in pain and bleeding, immediately called an ambulance and the police to report the incident.

Seberang Perai Utara District Police chief ACP Noorzainy Mohd Noor, when contacted, confirmed the matter and said further investigations were underway.

"The teenager is currently receiving treatment at HSJ and she will be detained after the treatment. Her child's body was also sent to the same hospital for autopsy," he said, adding that the police were currently tracking down the girl's boyfriend, who is also her schoolmate, to assist with investigations under Section 318 of the Penal Code.

The baby's body wrapped in a piece of cloth was found by a resident there along with two Myanmar men who were carrying out cleaning work and collecting rubbish in the flat area at 9.35am today. - Bernama

Ram Karpal Listen To Your Late Father. He Was Right. Leopards Cannot Change Their Spots.



That was 12 years ago? The late Karpal Singh disagreeing with the Brader who he says was ready to accept jumping frogs.

Here is his son Ramkarpal Singh today:



https://www.msn.com/en-my/news/national/mou-with-govt-meaningless-if-ph-accepts-melaka-4-warns-ramkarpal/ar-AAPRa9B?ocid=msedgntp

  • MoU with govt meaningless if PH accepts Melaka 4, warns Ramkarpal
  • anti-hopping law meaningless if opposition accepts “Melaka 4”  
  • He said PH will certainly lose credibility if Melaka 4 stand under PH 
  • it was because of such defectors PH had lost power last year
  • Ramkarpal said PH inked MoU with UMNO/BN for electoral reforms 
  • So PH must show it is dead serious by rejecting all four


My comments : Really? Well the "islamic" brader may not agree with you. Here is some news :



https://www.msn.com/en-my/news/national/anwar-downplays-idris-3-reps-presence-at-ph-event/ar-AAPJuw3?ocid=msedgdhp&pc=U531

  • Anwar downplayed presence of Idris Haron, 3 assemblymen at PH event
  • We invited them because they stepped up to bring change in Melaka 
  • So, to us, just saying thank you is reasonable
  • According to Anwar, DAP against Norhizam and not Idris, Effandi, Nor Azman 
My comments: 

Ramkarpal says :

  • MoU with govt meaningless if PH accepts Melaka 4
  • PH will certainly lose credibility if Melaka 4 stand under PH
  • PH must show it is dead serious by rejecting all four

The question is 'Is Ramkarpal dead serious or is this just lip service?'  

Because it looks like the 'islamic' brader is dead serious in wanting the Melaka 3 (or Melaka 4) to stand under the PH banner.

Ramkarpal, do you or anyone else knows how much rice is grown in Melaka? Do you or anyone else knows how many rice farmers there are in Melaka? Do you or anyone else knows what is the annual Budget allocation (under Ministry of Agri) for rice cultivation in Melaka? Not relevant ah? Ok lah.

PETALING JAYA: Polis Daerah Timur Laut di Pulau Pinang sedang menjalankan siasatan dalaman berhubung dakwaan seorang anggotanya enggan menerima laporan berhubung kes cabul yang tular di media sosial sejak kelmarin.

“Pihak polis dan saya sendiri sedang menjalankan siasatan dalaman dan beri jaminan siasatan secara menyeluruh, telus dan adil akan dijalankan berhubung dakwaan yang tular di media sosial iaitu Facebook itu.

“Jika terkesan ada salah laku dan kecuaian dalam melaksanakan prosedur penugasan, tindakan tatatertib akan dikenakan kepada semua pegawai atau anggota yang terlibat,” kata Ketua Polis Daerah Timur Laut, Soffian Santong dalam kenyataan yang dipetik Bernama.

Beliau berkata, tindakan pegawai atau anggota polis enggan menerima laporan orang awam merupakan kesalahan amat serius dan tidak boleh dikompromi.

Katanya, selepas dakwaan itu tular, pengadu dipanggil ke Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah (IPD) Timur Laut untuk diambil keterangan dan mengesahkan dakwaan itu.

“Satu kertas siasatan telah dibuka mengikut Seksyen 354 Kanun Keseksaan kerana kesalahan mencabul kehormatan.”

Pada 21 Okt lepas, satu hantaran di Facebook Urban Life Volunteers mendakwa anggota polis dari IPD Timur Laut enggan menerima laporan yang hendak dibuat seorang mangsa cabul, dipercayai berlaku dalam sebuah tandas wanita di Komtar.

Beberapa individu dan badan bukan kerajaan tampil menyuarakan pendapat, dengan kebanyakannya menyalahkan polis kerana didakwa enggan menerima laporan mangsa. - FMT

Cut living costs, don’t raise wages, say employers

 

Businesses need at least two years to recover from the effects of pandemic lockdowns, says MEF president Syed Hussain Syed Husman.

KUALA LUMPUR: Businesses need at least two years to recover and employers are in no position to absorb increases in wage costs, the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) said today.

Responding to calls for an increase in the minimum wage, MEF president Syed Hussain Syed Husman said that efforts should be made instead to control the rising cost of products and services.

“No amount of wage increases will be able to keep up with the ever-rising cost of living if no effective measures are implemented,” he said.

He said an upward revision of minimum wages would derail economic recovery and the goals of the 12th Malaysia Plan, Bernama reported.

Syed Hussain said the pandemic had caused a massive drop in performance of all economic sectors, resulting in a 5% contraction of the economy in 2020.

Despite various stimulus packages, many employers continued to face severe challenges to remain sustainable.

“We must do all we can to support existing businesses at this very critical juncture. Our top priority should be to provide more funding to revive businesses.

“We need at least two years to normalise businesses and employment,” he said.

He stressed that the private sector employers, especially the SMEs and micro-enterprises, were in urgent need of government support to enable them to retain existing employees, which would in turn help stabilise the labour market and create more quality employment in the long run.

“More than 32,500 companies have ceased operations, with more than 107,000 employees losing their jobs following the lockdowns in 2020 and 2021.

“This resulted in a higher unemployment rate of 4% in August 2021,” he said in a statement today.

Before the Covid-19 outbreak, Malaysia was at full employment, as the rate was below 4%.

However, the current unemployment rate of those between 15 and 24 years was now 12%, he said.

Syed Hussain said due to various cost-cutting measures undertaken by employers, median wages dropped to RM1,988 compared to RM2,442 in 2019. Average wages dropped to RM2,933 in 2020 compared to RM3,224 in 2019, a decrease of 9%.

Labour productivity, he said, also recorded -16% in 2020 following the reduction in the workforce, which lowered the value added Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2020.

He noted that throughout 2020 and 2021, the government provided RM18 billion in wage subsidies that benefitted more than 300,000 employers and 2.4 million employees.

The current grim economic scenario did not permit any upward review of the existing minimum wages, especially when more than 98% of all registered companies are small and medium enterprises and micro-enterprises.

Syed Hussain said the majority of businesses still in existence did not enjoy the same margins as before, which were only between 10 and 15% for most SMEs. This would not be enough to cover overhead costs, he said.

“To add to the cost of business now is unwise. It is more prudent to look at measures to control living costs, which will directly help wage earners. An employer’s most valuable asset is its employees, and no employer wants to see their staff face difficulties.

“Productivity and performance will also improve when all parties are happy and safe,” he said. - FMT

Schoolgirl who died was healthy after jab, says health dept

PETALING JAYA: A teenager said to have died after getting a first Covid-19 vaccination had been healthy after being administered the dose, says Johor health director Dr Aman Rabu.

Responding to a Facebook post by Umno Supreme Council member Puad Zarkashi, he said 14-year-old Noor Hayati Nabila Abdullah was given her first dose of the Pfizer jab on Oct 3.

He said the hospital received a request for an autopsy from the Batu Pahat district police after the girl was found dead in the living room by her mother on Oct 8.

The body was taken to Hospital Sultanah Nora Ismail in Batu Pahat for a post-mortem examination. The forensic medical officer who conducted the post-mortem found that Hayati did not have a history of illnesses or allergies, Aman said.

She was also said to be in “good condition” after getting vaccinated and did not suffer from any fever, flu, joint aches or breathing difficulties.

“She was able to conduct her daily activities normally,” Aman said in a statement today.

He said the autopsy found a growth on her ovaries and an anomaly in her heart’s structure. Tissue samples from her body have been sent to forensic pathology experts at Hospital Sultanah Aminah in Johor Bahru.

“Further test results are expected to be obtained between Oct 24 and Oct 28. Various blood tests have been sent to the laboratory and are awaiting results.

“The autopsy report has been categorised as incomplete because test results have yet to be received. A complete autopsy report is needed to ascertain her cause of death.

“However, the department takes note of the matter which has gone viral,” he said.

Puad had posted a picture of himself when visiting the family of Hayati, whom he said “had died after receiving her first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine”.

The Umno man had also urged the health ministry to be transparent and release the post-mortem results quickly. - FMT

Hotline set up for complaints about food delivery services

 

Traders and consumers can send complaints about food delivery services to the domestic trade and consumer affairs ministry.

KUALA BERANG: A special complaints channel has been set up for traders and consumers to submit issues and problems related to food delivery services (p-hailing).

The deputy minister for domestic trade and consumer affairs, Rosol Wahid, said complaints could be channelled via email to adu.khidmatpenghantarmakanan@kpdnhep.gov.my to allow appropriate action to be taken by the ministry.

“We have created a special channel so that not only traders but also consumers who have any problem can lodge complaints to us,” he told reporters after launching a cooperatives event at Felda Bukit Bading here today.

Rosol said the ministry received 1,903 complaints last year and 946 complaints up to August this year about the services of Food Panda, while 30 complaints were made about GrabFood last year and 43 complaints up to August this year.

He said the ministry was actively engaging with the key players in the industry, especially Food Panda and GrabFood to resolve all issues, including delays in payment of food sales to traders and high commission charges.

“Some delivery companies claim that the delay in payment is due to problems with their system. They promise to improve their system. There are also companies that want to lower their commission rates,” he said. - FMT
