Injured girl caned, becomes paralyzed

Posted by jtsmyth8 on July 15, 2008

A teacher in Kuala Klawang who caned a student might not have known that the students had hurt her back in a fall.

As a result of the caning, Nurlieyana Nazran, 17, now cannot walk.

She is being warded at the Tuanku Jaafar Hospital in Seremban.

“Due to the student’s injury, she was absent from school for some time. So it could be that the teacher was unaware that the student had an injury to her lower back,” state education director Abdullah Mohamad said yesterday.

“I understand that this teacher is known to be strict and wanted all her students to excel in their coming Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia examination.”

Abdullah promised a full investigation into the Thursday incident. (story)

Life as prostitute ends for teen

Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 7, 2008

How do you tell your parents you have an “injured vagina”. That must have been an interesting conversation. Can you imagine how many viruses she must have caught. Sick! If you have ever considered going to use a prostitute think again! How can someone so young be so corrupted. She must have been desperate for money to sell her body.

“She is only 17 but has a bank balance of over RM80,000 ($34,450).

The first bombshell she dropped would have caused concern to any parent – her vagina was injured.

The teenager who hails from Terengganu had been offering sexual services in Kuala Lumpur since 2006, reported Harian Metro.

According to the tabloid, the girl charged between RM 2,000 and RM4,000 for her sexual services.” (story)

William Ding Chun Fong wins appeal

Posted by jtsmyth8 on April 30, 2008

Former teacher William Ding Chun Fong, 36, on Wednesday won his appeal against conviction for molesting two schoolboys.

Four secondary school students accused Ding of molesting them in separate incidents between 2001 and 2005.

Ding denied the accusations and fought the case in an 80-day trial that spanned nine months.

He was found guilty in March last year by District Judge Jasbendar Kaur on three charges involving two boys and sentenced to a year’s jail. Ding was acquitted of six other charges involving the other two boys.

Ding choked back tears as an appeal judge on Wednesday acquitted him of molesting two schoolboys.

On hearing that he had won his appeal against his conviction last year by a lower court, he first appeared stunned. (story)
