What sexual harassment?

Report withdrawn. I heard that a report on alleged sexual harassment, lodged a few days ago by a female employee of a hotel in KL against a VIP, has been withdrawn.

The MSM will confirm the news for us in a while, I suppose.

I'll update if I can, but y'see I don't really like doing sexual harassment cases. Saw more than enough in my years in the papers - allegations of sexual harassment that happened in the news room and police cases filed against people - usually VIPs - outside the newsroom.

For this particular case, a couple of blogger buddies were giving me sort of a running commentary on what was happening. Which was how I heard that the lady who lodged the report had been assigned this top-notch criminal lawyer.

Front page stuff for the tabloids, yes, but not the kind a journalist would want to boast about over beers at the club.
Speaking of which ....

  1. Hmm...what a way to make quick money. Serve a well known rich groper with much to lose but too intoxicated to realise it, wiggle the bum a little more than usual, get groped and scream for your boyfriend waiter, make a police report, withdraw it and go to Europe for a holiday. Makes for a good short story.

    Maybe it's the hotel's lawyer? If she works at hotel, how to hire a lawyer? Hotels don't pay enough to hire a maid, man!

    To the Big Imam Hadhari.....your cabinet and ex cabinet comprises of Malay drunks, womanisers,murderers, homos, lesbians and of course all of them are corrupt to the core (no money no talk) and hypocrite.
    This is of course extended to all the other BN component suckers who learn quickly from their UMNO masters.

    The ex Mosti fool was smoking a cigar while sipping alcohol and gropping the ass of the waitress and he claims to be Muslim......where is the JAWI people and where is the Imam Hadhari-- doing the same?

    Verily, the worst of you will become your leaders in the end of times.........

  15. Rocky, on the sexual harassment charge against this ex-cabinet minister, I was told all major newspaper decided not to report it as it happened last week, but since TV3 came out with this news item two days ago they have no choice but to report it!

  16. Police report made
    Victim made about turn
    Withdrawing her report
    Claiming she got it wrong

    Drunkard or tipsy
    What had been done got it made
    Sometimes I wonder……………
    Money was exchanged?

    In this world of money market
    It counts a lot in settling cases
    Minor or serious offences
    It can be arranged……..when price is right

    When it involved moneyed or VIP people
    Close one eye can be made
    The invincible corruption walking in the mind
    People don’t see it
    It is like a promissory note
    For future redemption when it is due

    People can speculate
    Thinking of the obvious what they will
    Witnesses and friends
    It was just a bad dream perhaps?

    It isn’t anything new
    Past cases had done before
    Let the evil sleeps
    Let nobody wakes it up
    Let the dreams be yesterday
    Life will be normal
    The traffic lights and dreams

    Extract from The Star;
    "The 30-year-old promoter at a lounge in a five-star hotel here, in a statutory declaration sent to Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail through her lawyer Datuk Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, said she was “sensitive and moody” at the time of the incident last Thursday"

    Whoaaaaa... now who gonna foot the bill for legal services rendered by Datuk Muhammad Shafee Abdullah?? Anyone can advise wadda minimum fee chargeable by this lawyer????

    The Watcher Said,
    This ex Minister is the same Nazi that made racist and derogatory statements against some Malaysian students in the US not very long ago.

    This same minister, as I could still recall, a few years ago on a trip to Frankfurt,Germany en-route to the US to attend a meeting, harassed the flight crew, saying, Quote "I own MAS, I own all of you".Demanded to enter the cockpit. Flight crews refused due to Sept.11 incident.
    Harassed the flight stewardess.
    After that meeting in the US, the Parliament was rocked with accusation that certain Minister had engaged in sexual activities while attending the meeting in the US.

    So...another scum bag got off the hook...or was it that the hotel was too cognizant of the after effects, not to rock the boat or the powers that be in action...I guess whilst sending up our spaceman the fella in question could have had the cream of the crop of Kazakh stocks...but instead he decided to stoop low enough to his normal level to commit this shameful exercize...who is going to spill the beans on this guy, who on the media night of a tv outfit,(held several years ago) disappeared for his rendezvous, even before the function ended

    Who is going to revive the culprits of the Norita case, walking free..I am not sure that this guy had a spree, but he sure fits into the profile of the patron.

    This guys had the audacity of calling my girlfriend 'sweetie...see you during the coffee break, at one corporate function..
    If he is the man he is ...he should own up and walk tall...maybe that isn't in his vocabulary.

    Anyway, maybe because the cigar promoter works for a hot,hard and rocking outfit which is in the entertainment and hospitality industry.So perhaps the bosses would have made a good decision in the interests of one and all.

    Whatever the reasons behind that incident, the groper must learn and repent or face the consequences.He must also call to mind that he has a daughter that he so fondly speaks of, at many if not every press conference during his reign as a full member of the cabinet.

    Maybe its about time scums (can't find a better terminology in the english language to describe him) like this behave politely in public and give credence to the office they hold or the people they represent.

    There is also another scum cum coward turncoat former cabinet minister now a current member of parliament who walked out on his family for a second-hand maiden,heard he is a ethnic cuisine restauranteur wanna be.Its so sad how these guys carry themselves.This scum deserted his family.

    Anyway, the day of judgement is nigh...as they say 'for whom the bell tolls'....maybe your boarding ticket is ready for collection....repent and save yourself from the damnation of hell...sighhhhh

    after the sexual escapade of the Malaysian health minister, we can't afford to assume and presume that this woman is the evil perpertrator.

    very often women are being intimidated to "confess" that they are at fault and made it all up when sexual predators abuse them.

    lets get to the bottom of this violation and i appeal to women's organisations like WAO and AWAM and Sisters of Islam to throughly investigate what really caused her to "change" her police report.

    no politician or vip should be exempted from the law or to coerce victims of sexual abuse into altering police reports. sexual abuse must be eradicated at all levels and be condemned in the strongest terms.

    This same person was in the limelight not too long ago when while in US he allegedly passed remarks (factfully wrong) to a Malaysian female on her level of darkness and so forth.
    Then there was a near blackout in the MSM.
    The current story is indeed more blightful, one would say.
    Just goes to show the power of karma whom money,race,nationality,class,clan or tribe cant beat when it happens.
    So everyone needs to be humble that God lifts them up at the right time and that they seek the truth rather than hide it.

    betul ke thru some friends back in malaysia kata with the current political scenario, this is just another ploy to divert the public from the real issues.

    1.The failure of BN government to garner two-third majority in GE.

    2.The repeated calls made by Umno members for PM to step down

    3.To weaken Najib via his hencemen.

    Is this true?

    The sad fact is that most people who suffer from sexual harassment, are the ones that never report the offense. In my years as a human resource professional, I have witnessed this time and time again. Just as sad, is that a number of reported sexual harassment incidents are actually people trying to get back at a boss that they do not like or resent for some reason. Sometimes the reason is as simple as envy. I detail these situations and offer solutions in my book, Wingtips with Spurs: Lessons From the Ranch. In fact, I devote an entire chapter to these issues. Until we learn deep, moral lessons, there will be prey on both sides of the coin. Michael L. Gooch, SPHR www.michaellgooch.com
