1. VOTES SUPPORTING DEATH
A teenage girl was found dead on the pavement of her family’s rented unit in Batu Kawa about 8PM on Monday believed to have jump three floors down from her unit.
Davia Emelia, aged sixteen, before killing herself had created an IG poll which asked her friends to vote whether she should live or die. Unfortunately, only 31 per cent of them voted “live” on her Instagram (IG), while an overwhelming 69% voted “death”.
Besides that, she also posted a Facebook status indicating that she was tired of life. Her Facebook post, which was all in caps, said she wanted to quit her life.
Davia, whose body was taken to the Sarawak General Hospital morgue for a post-mortem, did not leave any written message. However, police do not suspect any foul play.
Padawan police chief Supt Aidil Bolhassan said they have classified the case as sudden death.
2. SARAWAK READY TO HELP FEDERAL GOVT DISSEMINATE DEVELOPMENT INFO
Sarawak will give all the necessary co-operation to the federal government in disseminating information on its development plans and programmes.
Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas when meeting communications and multimedia Deputy Minister Eddin Syazlee Shith yesterday said this was to ensure the people get the correct message. Thus, the state government had no problem with members of the federal cabinet visiting the state.
He said as far as the state government was concerned it is still friendly to the federal government in mutually beneficial policies, plans and programmes.
The state Corporate Communication Assistant Minister Abdullah Saidol who was present called on the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and the police to take stern and immediate action against those posting incendiary religious or racial issues on the social media.
He said serious immediate action must be taken against the perpetrators who can create disunity, instability and suspicion in Sarawak’s plural society.
He added in this respect; any report made should not be considered as mere political play acting.
