Malaysian couple spared death penalty after starving Cambodian maid to death

Malaysia couple spared death for starving Cambodian maid
29 January 2018
A Malaysian couple who were on death row for starving their Cambodian maid to death saw their sentences reduced to 10 years in prison last week, according to Malaysian rights organisations.

Chin Chui Ling and her husband, Soh Chew Tong, were initially convicted of homicide in 2013, but the appeal court handed them the death sentence for murder in 2015. On Thursday the Federal Court of Malaysia again reduced the charge to homicide.

Cambodian maid Mey Sichan went to Malaysia in 2011, and was found dead in 2012 weighing just 26.1 kilograms with marks of physical abuse.

Glorene Das, executive director of Malaysian human rights organisation Tenaganita, told reporters that, while her organisation did not support the death penalty, the 10-year sentence was unacceptable.

You're almost as classy as the sick ####s who murdered their maid...almost.

No idea why you stand up for Malaysia, you're a 2nd-class citizen due to your Chinese ancestry there, no?

From wiki:

The Chinese population in Malaysia has been consistently declining percentage-wise since Malayan independence, from 37.6% in 1957 to 24.6% in 2010 and 21.4% in 2015.[8] The reason for the decline may be due to a lower birthrate[9] as well as a high level of emigration in recent decades. According to a report by the World Bank, the Malaysian diaspora around the world in 2010 numbered at around a million, with most of them ethnic Chinese, and the main reasons for emigrating are better economic and career prospects abroad as well as a sense of social injustice within Malaysia.[10] The large number of emigrants, many of whom are young and highly educated, resulted in a significant problem of "brain drain" in Malaysia.[10][11][12]

Hi, I'm a site policeman.

So, are you saying that it's ok for a Malaysian couple to starve their Cambodian maid to death? Is that what you're saying?

"you need to #### off ####". Is that really necessary on this forum or in any conversation? I know you are a #### but there are more eloquent and peaceful words to use to express yourself to another human being. Have a nice day.

Not sure calling him a '####' is helping, LOL, but I agree with your basic premise.

I changed everything that could be offensive to ####. Kinda looks cool, lol. Is it enough to defuse the situation and get everyone in close for a group hug? Probably not, but hey, I tried. :hattip:
