Bloody embarrassing for something like this to continue to happen in this country. What irks the hell out of me - its the statement that the main-con, Maya Maju made - that the responsibility lies with the sub-con to pay their workers,.... typical Malaysian CUCI TANGAN mentality and attitudes...

These people come here to work - to make a decent wage - yet they get cheated left, right and centre... WHO WANNA BET, this issue will be forgotten in a few days time... :mad:

No wonder half the building built on sweat blood and 'curses', keep falling down faster than you can say anything.... :rolleyes:

Whaddaya expect?.. It can happen ONLY in Malaysia (as with countless kinds of controversy and events in the past), to addon Malaysia ONLY learns from some martyrdom or tragedy...(conveniently that ragging incident) Cheesh! :cool:

One of the contractors is Ahmad Zaki Sdn Bhd., supposedly the contractor who constructed the Trengganu stadium aptly named Stadium Sultan Mizan which had a massive collapse of its roof recently... he he... :D

Hmmmm... I seriously wonder if the Malaysia were a few centuries ago, like where many wonders of the world were built with slave or conscripted labor, if can I reckon it would happen here. A lot of foreign labor are often driven like slaves. Sometimes I pity them but what to do, they're never in the same position as local staff, that is; if unsatisfied can resign or walk off, no need to talk 1 talk 2 or tok kok.
Actually the gomen should implement a common depositry for foreign workers where their passports or other valuable documents are stored till they leave the country or term ends. Employers cannot have their own way in controlling their foreign workforce. Of course there's more in this and can go off topic.

same outfit that built the "new" flyover connecting Subang Jaya to Fed. Highway and Subang Airport Highway... hope as hell, they din cut corners on that one... darn thing is really super high at certain stretches....


Anyway - this front page news is certainly exploitation of human workforce... tomorrow I'll bet that the Immigration and RELA would be going to do spot checks on the sites... (probably at the behest of the employers!!!) Once Immigration & RELA grabs 'em... NO NEED TO PAY them ma... Now go see the right connections and get a fresh batch of workers to exploit... :mad:

Sickening !

Even if Immigration or RELA do conduct checks, do you seriously think there will be any actions against these contractors? Hey, they are all favored contractors lah, crony companies if you wish. Malaysia Boleh! :mad:

...and then 'sapu-clean' all these (loudmouth?) trouble makers into a detention camp for a period of time - before sending them back to where they came from....ONLY if these immigrant workers survive the horrible conditions of the detention centres....

I personally visited the detention centre here in Juru on the mainland with some NGOs few months back during the flu outbreak.... I doubt I can survive 3-4 days in there... we are treating human beings worst than the stray dogs at the city hall dog pounds! Shameful of our government and those of us remaining quiet!
