AFTER 16 years, Hong Kong action superstar Jackie Chan is finally ready to launch his new album in August, reported Oriental Daily.

During an event in Beijing, China, Chan said he had spent three years to produce the album due to his busy schedule.

“Finally, it is done,” he said.

Chan said he invited several friends from the entertainment industry to provide him with input to fine-tune the songs in the new album. He also appointed his son Jaycee, who is a singer-cum-actor, as the music director.

It was reported that Chan last released an album 16 years ago.

> The daily also reported that a 14-year-old child had been sodomised by an older boy at a centre for the mentally handicapped in Temiang, Seremban.

The victim, who has learning difficulties, had complained of pain in his backside during a routine health check on March 24.

Despite being brought to a doctor who treated him for haemorrhoids, he still made a similar complaint a few days later. The boy was then sent to the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital where doctors found tears in his anus.

He told the doctor he was sodomised on March 24 and 28.

A 15-year-old boy was later arrested and admitted to sodomising the victim. He also confessed to asking other students to perform oral sex on him.

Seremban OCPD Asst Comm Thiew Hock Poh confirmed the case.

> Sin Chew Daily reported that a 44-year-old man, whose molest of a girl at a funfair in Sg Petani, Kedah, went viral, had been sentenced to four years in jail and two strokes of the rotan.

Tan Seong Hee pleaded guilty before Sessions Court judge M. Vijayalakshmi after the charge was read out to him on Monday.

He was charged with molesting the girl at a funfair beside the Kuala Muda district police headquarters at about 11pm on Jan 20.
