Duo first to be charged with baby dumping in the country - The Star News

MALACCA: An 18-year-old factory worker and his 17-year-old girlfriend became the first couple in the country to be charged under the Penal Code for baby dumping. The couple pleaded guilty yesterday to the offence, which carries a maximum sentence of seven years’ jail, a fine or both. Mohd Zolhalmi Khamis and
the girl, both from Felda Jelai, Gemas, Negri Sembilan, were charged under Section 317 of the Penal Code for intentionally abandoning a child below the age of 12. At the outset, magistrate Mohd Fairuz Johari explained to the girl that although she was a minor, she had to be in the dock together with her boyfriend owing to the nature of the offence.
“However, sentencing against you will be different,” he said.

Mohd Fairuz deferred sentencing to Sept 28 pending a probation report.The couple, both workers in the Diabochi factory at the Ayer Keroh Industrial Estate, left their newborn baby girl in a dumpster outside the factory at about 1am on Aug 11. The baby was rescued at 5.20am by a factory security guard who heard the infant’s cries. He found the baby in a cloth bag. The couple was arrested the same day and granted bail of RM5,000 each in one surety.
 
 
SentuhanBayu: Should a person who dumps a baby, causing the child to die, be tried for murder and sentenced to death? I voted for yes. If you are causing death with intention to another human - no matter how small the human is, you are still a murderer. And a murderer MUST be punished. I'm sorry, but it is really heart breaking to see these people abondoning their child or I must say with intention to kill the child (since they put the baby in dumpsters, drains etc.)  & at the same time meeting couples who longing for a child (and have tried for years to get one).

Horror at my daughter's kindie - part 1 : The Roslan Incident

I'm extremely disappointed by the experience i went thru today with the Genius Aulad Kota Damansara transport service provider. I have the impression that they are the best all this while & boy i was wrong. I was shocked that the complaint of level of service they've provided me, I'm being dismissed as disrespectful & was told that the are much happier for not having me as a customer. MasyaAllah. Makes me wonder who is the customer here. No word of apology from them & they actually threatened my daughters nursery teacher. Oh dear, what have i got myself into.
            Thankfully, GA Center Manager apologize of what had happened. I'd like her to be aware of what kind of service that Encik Roslan has given me when he is under stress.
