[ – 3/26/19]

PUTRAJAYA: The child sex offenders registry will be made available from April 1 to help the public monitor sexual offenders.

Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister Hannah Yeoh said with the child registry in place, the ministry and the Welfare Department hope to protect children from repeat offenders.

“Parents, school managements, childcare centres and even religious organisations can now use this registry to check on sex offenders.

“As long as it involves working with children, they are encouraged to use the registry,” Yeoh said after launching an event here.

Dang, even Malaysia doesn’t want to make it public because they understand the level of abuse it would garner.

It’s because it mostly family members and religious figures. Plus social media moves at 100 times the speed.

If you look at Malaysian news, if there is a case like this, many times they will not release the name of the person who committed the crime as it could do damage to the family that it happened to and cause the child to commit suicide. They look at the possible damage done to reputation, family and the ability to continue living after you have served your 30-40 years and had your canings.

This is why a good majority of Asia sees the US as Barbarians.
Also if I didn’t misread the registry in Malaysia is for repeat offenders. Found another article.

It’s mostly to stop the teachers and religious leaders who jump from one location to another to do really messed up stuff to kids.

“It appears a vast majority of those on the registry are first-time offenders. For example, 314 people were charged in 2017, but only 14 of them are repeat offenders. Likewise last year 639 people were charged, and only 34 of them are repeat offenders,” Yeoh said.

Unfortunately, Asia pretty much bars all of us no matter what it is that we did to land on the registry. They see the U.S. as barbarians, but then they end up doing the same to us.

@Detaied Honestly that all depends Most of the countries don’t care as long as you didn’t do it in their country. The US has been sending letters saying you are dangerous and not to let you in. So those governments are scared. Once you make it to one country that will allow you to stay there is no issues after. The problem in all the scenarios begins and ends with the US. Since moving out of the US I have had 0 issue in my despite how scared I was to travel because I’m still stuck on a registry. With… Read more »

Pretty soon they’re gonna be charging us a fee to breathe “their” air.

It’s always possible that my nose is just smelling things.
On the other hand, why do I seem uncannily to ever so detect the pungent odor of the USA’s involvement behind Malaysia’s decision to enforce this new law?

It’s not an unreasonable suspicion. We have already witnessed the U.S. giving an “award” to the Philippines for blocking entry to U.S. registrants. The U.S., along with Great Britain, Canada, New Zealand and Australia are on a moral crusade to impose their Anglo purity on the rest of the world.

It was influenced by the US but was seen as too dangerous to have for years since there would have to be a few different types of the law as Malaysia also follow Shariah law where the joke locally was that it was legal if they are underage as long as you marry them after. Lately there has been a lot more cases that have been more and more fucked up involving family members or trusted people in society. The metoo movement influenced it the most and created a lot of sexual harassment cases. If found guilty that equals prison,… Read more »
