Due to the ongoing MCO, too many have lost their jobs and had to raise the White Flag and seek assistance. Behind closed doors though, there are many other horror stories that threaten the lives of local folks.
A local woman in her 40s recently borrowed money from an illegal loan shark or “Ah Long” to cover her father’s funeral expenses. Due to her current financial status from loss of income, she’s been unable to pay back what she borrowed.
As a result, the Ah Long sexually assaulted and physically abused her, in addition to stripping her naked to take photos. They threatened to leak her nudes if she reported this incident to the cops. But out of desperation, she turned to Kuan Chee Heng (aka Uncle Kentang), who is the Community Policing Malaysia (CPM) president.
According to Kuan, the woman from Kuala Lumpur previously worked in a furniture shop. But since it’s non-essential, there has been little to no business. On 13th May, she decided to turn to loan sharks for some quick cash in order to settle her dad’s funeral cost.
Kuan added that although the woman initially settled part of her debt (that comes with interest), she’s been unable to settle the remaining portion. This obviously angered the Ah Long and they allegedly kidnapped her last week. Although she’s too afraid to lodge a police report for fear that her nudes would be uploaded on social media, she turned to Kuan for help.
Kuan has agreed to help her out. At the same time, he also urged the public to avoid loan sharks at all cost. The outcome, as you can see, is never good.
