KUALA LUMPUR, 4 Dec 2008: Deputy Home Minister Datuk Chor Chee Heung said a recent announcement by police that they will punish negligent parents who fail to care for their children was just a proposal.
He said if ever there was any arrest, a detailed investigation would have to be done before any action was taken.
“It is imperative that an in-depth investigation is done and if there is proof only then can we act,” he said in reply to a supplementary question by Tan Ah Heng (BN-Gelang Patah) in the Dewan Rakyat here today.
He said several arrests were made but there was no proof that anyone was involved. — Bernama
