TAMIL Nesan condemned the act of some criminals who recently assaulted eight MPPJ enforcement officers, saying such acts against civil servants should not be tolerated.  

The daily said the act of injuring civil servants challenged the country’s law and order and should be nipped in the bud. 

The daily proposed that the enforcement officers should be prepared for such untoward incidents with sufficient security arrangements.  

On another matter, the daily said the Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) had proposed to the Health Ministry to handle the recruitment of foreign doctors to overcome the shortage as the Public Services Department was inefficient.  

CAP president S.M. Mohamed Idris said that there was an acute shortage of general physicians and specialists in the country and claimed that the PSD had not recruited any foreign doctors for the past six months.
