Recently, Malaysians were shocked to see pictures of a salesman being tortured just because he didn’t achieve his sales target.
According to The Star, Nur Firdaus Ibrahim, 21, worked as a salesman cum workshop assistant at a workshop in Taman Johor Jaya. In the evening, he would sell car accessories under a makeshift tent in Taman Perling.
When Firdaus failed to achieve daily sales target of between RM150 to RM200, his boss would punch him.
The boss also warned Firdaus not to use profit from the car accessories sale to buy food for himself.
“I don’t think he got any salary at all. That is why he had no choice but to use the sales money to feed himself,” said Firdaus’s mother, Jumiah Otto.
Just last week, Firdaus’s step-sister, Norazlin Yusof, 35 spotted him selling car accessories under the makeshift tent. He was looking frail and sickly but refused to follow his step-sister home. They lodged 2 police reports and found out the workshop address.
“We then went over to (the workshop and) brought him back. Since then, he has hardly talked about what he has gone through,” said Norazlin.
After being repeatedly questioned by his sisters, Firdaus broke down and confessed that the soles of his feet were burnt by an exhaust pipe.
Not only that, his boss also used water hose and a cane to whip him.
His other sister, Siti Nur Aisyah, 24 was heart broken to find out that her brother had been sleeping on a cardboard box in the storeroom of the workshop.
“Besides sales, my brother was also asked to do some repair and paint work on vehicles in the workshop,” she said.
As the result from the torment, Firdaus’s body weight dropped from 90 kg to 70 kg in just 3 months. He is currently being warded in Hospital Sultan Ismail.
Seri Alam OCPD Supt Jokhiri Abdul Aziz said police were still searching for the boss and his wife, and the case was being investigated under Section 324 of the Penal Code for causing hurt with a dangerous weapon.
No one should be subjected to this kind of inhumane treatment.
