> Johor Baru conman steals joy from 75 orphans
Seventy-five orphans from Kampung Batu 11 in Gombak, Selangor were let down when a man who had promised to sponsor the children’s expenses to attend a charity dinner in Johor Baru, went missing. The children, who had travelled 354km to attend the event, were told they would be the guests of honour at a charity dinner and that their travel expenses and stay at Hotel Berjaya Waterfront in Johor Baru would be taken care of. Upon arriving at the hotel, however, they were told that no reservations had been made and there was no event scheduled. The hotel, nevertheless, allowed the children to stay a night and paid for their travel.
