Police want the individual who misplaced a wallet containing foreign currency valued at RM12,666 at a prominent shopping mall in Jalan Imbi, Kuala Lumpur on Oct 9, to come forward and reclaim it at the Tun HS Lee police station.
Dang Wangi district police chief Mohd Sukri Kaman said the wallet, which contained 30 US dollar notes and Syrian currency, was discovered by a cleaner at the diaper changing room on the third floor of the shopping mall.
“Police did not find any identification documents in the wallet. Apart from the money, only a few photographs believed to be of the owner were in the wallet,” he told reporters after the presentation of certificates of appreciation to the security personnel of the shopping centre in Kuala Lumpur, today.
Mohd Sukri also thanked the cleaner for her honesty in handing over the wallet to the management of the shopping centre, who subsequently handed it over to the police.
He said that such deeds should be emulated by other parties to create a responsible and honest society.
The cleaning person at the baby toilet at Jalan Imbi clearly possesses the one vital virtue that is missing from the present government in Malaysia, which is fundamental honesty. The police were right to praise her and point out that ‘other parties’ should learn from her!
Forget the fancy qualifications, which the current people at the top like to boast of (plenty of which appear to be fake) since the one thing that people need most in government is trustworthyness.
Sarawak Report therefore suggests that this cleaning lady stand at the next election in a BN seat, since she will plainly do a better job than any present incumbent if she can just manage to get through the day without facilitating public theft.
Meanwhile, she deserves all our respect, because only through honesty and sincerity and service to others can any single individual earn true dignity in the eyes of others.
The police officers, who have also shown themselves more honest than the average UMNO MP by declaring this matter, ought to meanwhile donate her the money as a reward, unless it is re-claimed by a proven owner, who can account for their riches in a proper manner (which seems unlikely).
