The recording of a maid abusing a four-month-old baby, captured on CCTV, sparks outrage among the social networking site users
The two-and-half minute CCTV footage, uploaded on YouTube by “Sir Ark”, shows the maid tossing and throwing the baby on a mat violently.
The maid did the heinous act while feeding and dressing the baby, oblivious to the fact that her actions were being recorded.
One upset viewer, Amerul Afiq, said: “Dia ingat baby tu roti canai ke ape?!! Kene gi tau mael lambong ni , kasi lambong sama dia” (What does she think the baby is? Roti canai? The maid deserves a beating).
Another viewer, Akmal Baharum, urged everyone to be careful when choosing a maid.
Viewer Digganesh, on the other hand, advised families to raise their own children instead of relying on maids.
“I never trust my child with any one else except my mom and wife. You want to have a child? Make sure you raise him or her yourself!” he said.
The video currently has 36,582 views.
In an update, the police arrested the maid, Yuliana, 24, recently and the Kuantan Sessions Court sentenced her to a 20-year imprisonment yesterday.
She pleaded guilty to the charge of attempted murder and physical abuse of four-month-old Mohamed Hareez Mohamed Zamri at his parents’ home in Kuantan.
The incident was said to have happened on the morning of Feb 15.
