A CASSA ALERT SEPTEMBER 13TH 2003
-------------------------------------------------

On Monday September 8th at around 5 55 a.m. a young 28 year old woman was a victim of a savage robbery attempt that left the woman with severe bruises all over her body!

The incident took place at SS14 in Subang Jaya as the woman awaited for her bus to work.

A vehicle, a blue Proton Wira Sedan with registered number BFN5798 with three Indian men aged between 20 to 30 years of age stopped in front of the woman. One of them got out and grabbed her handbag. When the young woman resisted, the individual went back to the car, and took out a wooden rod and assaulted her while two others sat in the said vehicle.

Despite receiving a savage beating, she refused to hand over her handbag and fought back and the arrival of the bus with the driver horning prevented further injuries of a "worst kind" to this woman.

I am advised that this incident like several other cases made known to me by grassroot community leaders and residents was not reported.

When I met the said victim at her residence in Subang Jaya yesterday, I was shocked and saddened at the extend of her injuries and enquired why she had not made any police report, to which she answered that she had “absolutely no confidence in either the police or the effectiveness of police reports!”

She refered to a statement of the PJ Police deputy Chief thretening a e-mail sender with "penal santions" who alerted the public on a rape incident in Subang Jaya which at that time was also unreported and claimed to be a "hoax" by the police!

It is now confirmed that the incident did actually take place! And the PJ police deputy chief has alot of explaining to do let alone issue an immediate apology without fail!

In my humble opinion this police statement has damaged the image of the police further!

Damage control efforts must now be put into action and I will do my part in bringing this incident to the attention of the office of the deputy premier and home minister without fail!

If a victim wishes to refrain to report a crime we should ask sincerely why is this so?

Perhaps too the likes of the PJ deputy chief should do the same and take the necessary actions to facilitate a change in the communities’ mindset and perceptions towards the police rather than issue threats on E-Mail senders alerting a e-savvy communities of attacks against women and crime in general which only worsens the situation further.

In the public interest, I have decided to highlight this incident in both the CASSA Website at: http://cassa.org.my/ and in the Subang Jaya community website.

If the Petaling Jaya deputy Chief Assistant Commissioner Hassan Abdul Rahman is serious about his threat as it appeared in the Malay Mail report of 12th September on page 7 to charge individuals of "rumour mongering" under the Computer Crime Act which carries a jail sentence, fine or both upon conviction, I now challenge him to now charge me also with “rumour mongering” for informing/alerting the community of another attack against a defenceless woman under the Computer Crimes Act as at the time of this statement there is still no police report made by this victim!

We enclose herewith a statement by Mr. S.R of Malacca, father to a former 17 year old pre medical student in one of Subang Jaya colleges who was also a victim of attempted robbery and physical abuse.

" CASSA and Dr. Jacob George a sincere thank you for highlighting this incident so another student can be protected.

My daughter was a premedical student in one of Subang Jaya colleges. She is physically big for her age and used to rent a room in SS15 area from where she used to walk to the college. One afternoon as she walked towards her college a motocyclist stopped before her alighted and dragged her towards the back lanes of SS15 homes where there was a parked Proton Wira with three other men. There was loud music coming from the said vehicle that silenced the screams of my daughter as she was dragged towards the said vehicle. She fought back but it was in vain. Her gold chain was taken. Luckily for her two other motorcyclist came by and on seeing them the men drove off leaving my daughter bleeding. With Dr. George assisting I made a police report in Subang Jaya.

I contacted Dr. George from Malacca and he immediately assisted me to make a police report and also arranged for Malay Mail reporters to be at the station to publish this matter which they did.

The police officers at the station did also confirm that it was true that they were aware of the increasing crime and attacks against women but was ill equipped in terms of manpower to cover the geographical area which continues to grow unimpeded bringing with it the various problems like robberies and other serious crimes!

I am saddned to hear of this rape case involving a college student and the attack against this 28 yer old woman which has left her severely bruised

I hope something will be done soon"

My wife, daughters and I are really upset at what is becoming of Subang Jaya. Robberies, rape, murder, assaults, dan macam macam lagi. Now the guiness record breaking jams are not just the problem but serious crimes. What can we do to protect our women and property? Incidentally, are there other reports of similar cases that have gone unreported?
Perhaps, CASSA can take the lead here and assist. I as usual will volunteer my services.

It also speaks about the level of social responsibility the ppl of SJ/USJ have towards these things. At 5.55am, I'm pretty sure there were cars plying on that way. Why weren't there anyone who stopped to help the victim? I'm sure someone saw that thing happen.

Sure, times are bad, economy is down, companies retrenching staffs, there are more ppl without a job and blah blah blah. Crime rates have plumated but it sure doesn't mean we can't do our bit to help curb or stop one from occuring. I don't mean to sound like a saint here but I have watched ppl drive by slowly to catch a glimpse of what is happening rather than to stop their vehicle and put a stop to what is happening.

If we can stop our car and scare these culprits, I think daylight robberies by roadside can be reduced. When you stop, the guy behind will, and so will the rest.

In the past, my parents have always asked me not to get involved whenever there is crime. Why get killed for someone you don't know? I guess the best one can do in this circumstance is to honk the car non-stop like the bus driver did. But I too have this fear of Indian thugs (not a racist statement. ok it is.) from the news you get from the damages they have done in the past at Old Klang Road.

" I praise the Almightly that we have brave strong women who are willing to fight back to protect their right and honor from these thugs. I praise the Almighty that her life was spared despite receiving a brutal beating. While I may not be as brave as this sister was, if I was in similar position, her reaction and example inspires me and other sisters to do the same! We must show these thugs we fear them no more. God Willing there will be a uproar over these attacks and that in future members of the public who witness such incidences will come forward to help those in need as the next time it may be their mother,wife, sister or daughter!

ANOTHER WOMAN ATTACKED IN SUBANG JAYA - AN UPDATE!

Below ps find a few notes from Ms.SS who was the victim of a brutal attack on the 8th of September 2003 at SS14 at 5 55 a.m.

" Just want to say thank you to Dr. Jacob George of CASSA, Mr. Jeff Ooi & friends at USJ.Com.My and all for exposing this matter from the bottom of my heart!

I want to specially thank the bus driver who honked and flashed his lights on that morning which saved me from further harm or even death as my assailants took off immediately when this was done.

We have had countless incidents - the late Canny Ong, the poor girl who was raped a few days ago also in Subang Jaya and it is important that our community stand by each other and against these predators and show them clearly, by force, if necessary that these attacks on women will not be tolerated! That they have no breeding ground in Subang Jaya or any where else!

I share the incident of another friend who had gone to withdraw from the ATM recently, only to be stabbed when she put up a fight and resisted handing over her handbag.

The culprit was chased by onlookers and caught - he was a teenager!

And my friend was lucky that the knife just missed her vital organs by fractions!! She is still in hospital. Please let us do something together to make our country and homes safe!

Victim- Ms. SS of Subang Jaya"


Thank you SS for these words - we trust it will serve as a reminder and facilitate a community coming together to fight this growing menace.

Those were words of the victim.

The bus driver role in this matter. This is a good deed indeed. Straight ambil tindakan - bagus. Usually, people do not get involved - takut.

Perhaps, our friends Dr. Jacob & Co of CASSA can find siapa bus driver ini and organize a reward lah. Boleh Kah?

I've recently been a little stressed out by what i;ve been reading in regards to safety of women and children in M'sia esp in SJ/USJ since i hv been planning to move back into the old neighborhood. I used to think i was esocially vulnerable since i hv been widowed, but it seems like it doesnt even matter that a man is in the house as robberies hv occured no matter who is or isnt at home.

Am i supposed to leave my valuables in the bank all the time? Do i install security alarms and live in fear constantly? Can i not walk out alone in the day even?

Thank you very much Saudara Topguru for your suggestion. In fact we have already asked "Ms.SS" on Saturday last week to give us details of the bus company/driver so that "due credit can be given! where it is due".

In fact, on Monday morning and Tuesday several DJ's who had knowledge of this incident had devoted the day's songs compliments to the "Bus Driver behind this episode" after narrating this incident at SS14 in Subang Jaya "Bus Drivers!"

I am however surprised at the tone and tenor of the statement by the person who writes behind the name "lord"! But will refrain from saying more!

==============================================

Where the cops are... and aren't


Adek
4:06pm Mon Sep 22nd, 2003

Two things happened this week.

First, a friend of mine, a young visiting student, was walking to her school when she was approached by three policemen. They asked whether she was Chinese or Japanese, and then demanded to see her passport.

She did not have it with her but did have her student card. The police told her it was not good enough. She offered to take them to her school which was only half a block away so they could confirm her status, but they refused and insisted on seeing her passport. In the end, they made her take all three of them six blocks back to her apartment.

Once there, they made themselves comfortable in her living room, sitting on the sofa, looking at her things and asking her personal questions about her life. She brought out her passport but they barely glanced at it, seeming to be a lot more interested in making conversation than in verifying the document.

She kept telling them that she needed to go to class but they would not leave and even tried to get her to join them for lunch. It took her nearly 20 minutes to get them out of her apartment.

When I heard the story I asked her to make a police report. No, she said. She had made a police report a month earlier when someone began stalking her. In the report she mentioned that she lived alone and also wrote down her contact number. Since then, someone from that police station had been calling frequently, asking if they could be friends.

This kind of behaviour is unsettling on so many levels I don’t even know where to begin. First of all, the police approached someone and demanded to see documentation even though she was not breaking any laws or acting suspiciously.

Second, they refused to let her go to her school – somewhere safe and public – and instead went somewhere where she, a young woman, would be alone with three men. This is troubling because it sets a precedent for police impersonators. Women think that police have the right to make such requests and follow instructions unquestioningly, which puts them at risk for rape or murder.

Third, even after seeing the documentation, the police lingered, preventing a student from attending her classes. As a foreign student, she is required to attend a minimum number of classes or she will be reported to the Immigration Department.

Finally (but not really) there is no one to whom she feels she can report this behaviour since during her short stay in Malaysia, both her encounters with the police have resulted in harassment.

I urged her to call her embassy but would love to hear from malaysiakini readers if anyone has any further suggestions for what she can do. Needless to say, her impression of Malaysia has been soured and she is convinced that this country is unsafe for female visitors.

The other thing that happened this week happened to me. My bag was snatched. It was bound to happen sooner or later, even though I’m one of the most careful people I know, and I never carry anything valuable in my bag.

Nearly every other woman I know has had this happen, among them an eight-and-a-half month pregnant colleague who was knocked to the ground, an elderly widow who had recently lost her husband and so was carrying - and lost - the first love letter he ever sent her, and my housemate’s aunt who was pushed aside so violently that she had to undergo costly and painful reconstructive surgery to get her face back.

The reason I put both these events into the same letter is because when my bag was snatched two thoughts went through my mind. The first was how dare the police demand that we carry important documents such as our passport and ICs with us at all times when they have done next to nothing about the rising number of snatch thieves.

Surely, until they can make the streets safer, they should at least accept photocopies so we don’t have to pay for their shortcomings twice by losing our possessions as well as our time when we make reports and go through the bureaucracy of getting documents replaced.

Second, that if anyone wonders where the police are when our possessions are being snatched in broad daylight, they might think to look in the apartment of young foreign students who are being kept from attending their classes and who will have plenty of stories to tell their friends when they go back home.

Please be advised that the Radio Talk show will be on Radio 4 at 10.30 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. on September 24th

I am made to believe it will have a call in session but cannot at this material time confirm.

I now refer to the incident regarding this foreign student and the "unbecoming and questioning behaviour" of the policemen involved in this incident.

Both clfoo and Cool Hand Luke are right on track when they refer to this incident as "vile harrasment" and incidents like this cannot and should not be allowed to go unattended or tolerated.

If the identity of a person in question is the issue then the offer by the student to take them to her school was sufficient and reasonable. What is at all not reasonable behaviour is the allegations that the police demanded that she take them to her place of abode!

It is therefore important that the student in question make a police report pertaining to this matter.

If she could contact me at 012-3664444 I will personally take her to Bukit Aman with me to assist to lodge a police report and see to it that this matter is seriously followed through and investigated and action taken if there was any improprierty on the part of the policemen involved.

Good day to you Topguru!

Sorry about the delay in the talkshow, which started, at 11.15 a.m. over Radio 4.

The good news is that this was the first, in a long series of talk shows organized between Radio 4 and CASSA to look at the whole question of "Violence Against Women!"

Future programs will include testimonies of victims, involvement of various other target groups which would include, community based and profesional groups to give imputs and the best news is that it would have a "call in session!"

I am personally very excited about this development as it brings back memories of similar talk shows with call in sessions that I was involved in - then as FOMCA's Legal Adviser in the 90's.

I am sure the powers that be will also be hearing in on the program and thats good news - because they need to know what our community feels about such matters, so that immediate action can be taken on all fronts to prevent - Violence against Women!"

Like I said before, those who have been victims or have any imputs, please do call me - I will initiate your involvement in this project as well.

Let this program be a community driven program that will lead the way for other communities and neighbourhoods to immitate as well.

The more voices against "Violence Against Woimen - The Better!"

Let us stand up together against those who initiate such brutal attacks against our mothers, wives, sisters, daughters and others...!
