SHARE

PETALING JAYA: More than 40,000 people have signed a petition calling for justice to be served equally to the rich and poor after a Datin escaped jail time for abusing her Indonesian domestic worker.

Datin Rozita Mohamad Ali was sentenced to a good behaviour bond of five years by the Petaling Jaya Sessions Court last Thursday (March 15), even though the prosecution had called on the court to mete out a jail sentence.

The petition, started by an unnamed individual using the moniker “Equal Justice For Malaysians” on Saturday (March 17) on the change.com website has obtained 41,337 signatures as of noon Monday (March 19).

The petition is seeking 50,000 signatures before it is forwarded to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said.
