Just a couple of days ago, a video of a man slapping a foreign worker at a car wash went viral and spark an outrage amongst Malaysian netizens.
The CCTV clip was uploaded by the owner of the car wash, Ms Atie Abdul Hamid, who said that the man got angry at the worker, accusing the worker of dirtying his car. The footage showed the foreign worker holding a washcloth while sitting in the front seat of a luxury SUV.
The car owner asked him to get out, then scolded and slapped him hard in the face.
“The man did not want to pay for the car wash, and instead asked for RM1,000 from the man sitting in and dirtying his car when he was trying to clean the windscreen,” said Ms Atie. She added that the worker got slapped a second time at another location that caused the worker to “bleed non-stop”.
Naturally, netizens were quick to share and jump in on the issue with their thoughts, but most of them agreed on one thing – that this “slappy” man needs to be reported to the police for his actions.
Well lo and behold, the man has been identified and justice has been served, it seems. Because according to a The Star Online report, the magistrate’s court in Shah Alam has ordered 36-year-old Mohd Risamuddin Ab Wahab to pay RM5,000 to a foreign worker and his employer at a car wash.
He was also ordered to apologise to Shaheb Ali, the foreign worker he hit after accusing the worker of dirtying his car.
Risamuddin had earlier pleaded guilty to the crime, punishable under Section 325 of the Penal Code. He was charged with voluntarily causing grievous hurt to Shaheb at a car wash centre at Kampung Baru Subang on 17th October at 12:45pm.
Risamuddin’s counsels later handed over the cash to Shaheb and his employer.
