Call for mechanism to register, track sex offenders | Daily Express Newspaper Online, Sabah, Malaysia.
The government has been urged to set up a mechanism to register and track sex offenders in Malaysia.
In a joint statement here Friday, Pacos Trust, Women's Committee of BCCM BM, Karambunai Single Mothers Association and Sabah Women Organisation said it was about time the list be drawn up and made public and people like jailed student, Nur Fitri Azmeer Nordin must be registered on it. "It should be made known to our society that people on such a register are barred for life from working in occupations that put them in direct contact with children such as teachers, in nurseries, as security guards and others. "We still don't have such a sex offender registry, and we should set it up now as a matter of priority,"
