BOY NOT ASSAULTED: Police have ruled out the element of crime in the case of a Year Five pupil of SK Petaseh in Kuala Klawang who claimed to have been assaulted last Thursday. Jelebu OCPD DSP Abdurrahim Mohd Isa said a medical report on Mohd Ikhwan Abu Jamin, 11, revealed there were no assault injuries. “He was warded at the Seremban Hospital due to infections in his kidney and lungs,” he added. Last Friday, Bernama reported that Mohd Ikhwan's father Abu Jamin Abdul Manaf, 45, from Taman Paroi Jaya, Seremban, claimed his son was assaulted. 

Mohd Ikhwan is still in the hospital’s intensive care unit.  

LET'S DEBATE 9MP: PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat should accept RTM's invitation to take part in Debat Perdana on the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) to express his views and those of his party on the matter. 

Umno Information chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib said Nik Aziz, who is Kelantan Mentri Besar, should use the opportunity to discuss the matter openly. 

“There is no need to sneak (into Umno divisions) and criticise our leaders and run down the 9MP,” he said in Kepala Batas.  

TRANSVESTITES WANT OWN LOOS: Transvestites in Perak have complained that it is hard to find public toilets that they can use and want their own toilets.

Rajoo said the transvestites found it embarrassing and felt they had no privacy when using public toilets. “Most transvestites try not to use public toilets unless there is an emergency,” he said after opening the Perak Wanita MIC convention in Ipoh.
