Motion on NS trainee's death rejected in Dewan Rakyat

PRAVEEN says : Why reject? Why not urgent? It is urgent!! Those issue suppose to be discussed and come up with a solution immediately. I agree that the government had always seek ways to improve but what is the point since you have trainees dying each time u improve. When ask for motion to debate, the parliament feels not necessary. Dewan Rakyat should approve no matter who brings the issue up. Be fair to everyone, rulling party guys please be more understanding than being ego in parliament. I am sure nobody wants their kids, brother, sister, relative or friend to add up the death toll in National Service. Bertimbang rasalah sebelum anda di timbangkan!


The Dewan Rakyat has rejected an emergency motion by the opposition to debate the latest death of a national service trainee on the ground that it was not urgent to be discussed.In turning down the motion from Fong Po Kuan (DAP-Batu Gajah), Deputy Speaker Wan Junaidin Tuanku Jaafar said the government has always seek to improve the condition in national service camps.

In her motion, Fong argued that the House should debate the matter as it was of public interest and involved the lives of the current batch of 110,00 trainees nationwide.The latest victim was 18-year-old Too Hui Min, who died at the Slim River Hospital in Perak last Wednesday after complaining of constipation. Too - the 16th trainee to die since the programme was launched four years ago - was assigned to the Geo Kosmo national service training camp in Kuala Kubu Baru.
