KUALA TERENGGANU: An Indonesian maid of a Terengganu Umno stalwart and former state executive councillor went on a shopping spree with RM2,500 that she had stolen from her employer, not realising that her boss was on her trail.

She was dumbfounded to see her enraged employer waiting to nab her while she was paying for the items at a hypermarket, here, yesterday.

The employer had traced the 22-year-old maid to the hypermarket after one of his neighbours alerted him of her whereabouts.

State Deputy CID Chief Superintendent K. Manoharan said the maid, who is from West Java, fled with the money and her belongings when the employer was away.

Supt Manoharan said the employer then apprehended the maid at the hypermarket and handed her over to the police.

She has been remanded for four days to facilitate investigations.

In an unrelated development, Supt Manoharan said a foreigner was detained by the public for outraging the modesty of an 11-year-old girl at Pasar Payang central market here on Thursday.

He added that passers-by, who heard the victim’s screams, surrounded and assaulted the suspect before police officers arrived in a patrol car to quell the situation.

Police who took custody of the injured suspect found him to be an illegal immigrant.

KEMAMAN (NST): The wait is almost over for 170 employees of a hypermarket in Kemasik, who have been on unpaid leave since January.

After more than eight months, the Giant Super Store at Mesra Mall will be open for business soon.

Sources close to Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said said the anchor tenant of the only shopping mall in the area would be issued a business licence soon by the Kemaman Municipal Council.

Sources declined to say when exactly the store would open, but added the menteri besar was expected to announce it soon.

The hypermarket opening had been a thorny issue for Ahmad, who was embroiled in a power struggle with others over his position, but observers noted that the Kijal assemblyman now has a clear path ahead with his development plans after the Umno leadership said he would remain as menteri besar.
This can only be good news for Azim Azmuddin Abdul Aziz, 21, who thought his prayers were answered when he got the sales assistant job at Giant in early October last year.

But his joy lasted for only two months when he received a letter, asking him to temporarily go on unpaid leave until the store, which was supposed to begin in October, could be opened for business.

The father of a one-year-old daughter thought the delay would be brief but after four months, he knew he had to look for another job.

After an exhaustive search he got a job as a part-time general helper at the nearby Kemaman Port.

Similarly, Wan Mohd Fauzi Wan Ali was in the dark why the store’s opening was delayed, especially when it was fully stocked with products.

He said he had to accept the unpaid leave deal because of family commitments.

Cashier Norliza Mohamad, 21, said she was employed by the hypermarket in May last year and was sent for training in Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu, Shah Alam and Damansara.

She wanted the job badly because she could not accept employment at any of the outstation stores as her father had passed away and she needed to help her mother raise her younger school-going brother and sister.
