Council guard a sex slave to officers

A FEMALE guard of a local council in Selangor was allegedly forced to become a sex slave to three enforcement officers there for three years, Harian Metro reported,

Her husband, who wanted to be known only as Mohd Hassan, 60, was quoted as saying he did not suspect that his wife’s elusiveness and excuses to go to work over the weekends and public holidays was due to that reason.

He added that her dark secret was revealed only a year after she decided to stop working.

He said that when she quit, she had claimed that she wanted to look after her mother’s house in Pasir Mas, Kelantan while her mother was on her pilgrimage.

Not convinced with her excuse, he kept pressuring her to tell him the truth and she finally revealed the secret to him and her mother.

He said his wife was allegedly raped for the first time at a location near his house when one of the enforcement officers offered to send her home.

The enforcement officer allegedly forced her to give in to his demands and threatened to hurt or dismiss her if she declined.

He also “promoted” her to two other enforcement officers, who also allegedly raped her including in the car, office storeroom, staircase and toilet.

Mohd Hassan lodged a police report at Pasir Mas police station last March.

The daily also highlighted a report about loan sharks allegedly using a new tactic to cheat civil servants by enticing them to secure loans from certain co-operatives before investing the money in a multi-level marketing (MLM) scheme.

The syndicate allegedly used middlemen who claimed to be the co-operative agents, to coax civil servants to apply for loans and invest in the MLM, which had RM1bil in accumulated capital and had been blacklisted by the authorities.

The Cooperative Commission of Malaysia received complaints from those cheated by the syndicate, which allegedly used fake signatures and thumbprints of victims.

CCM chief executive Datuk Md Yusof Shamsudin said the commission would also freeze the National Co-operative Organisation of Malaysia (Angkasa) service bureau salary deduction codes of the alleged co-operatives to stop them from making transactions other than debt collection.
