Public Apology from MOH’s Deputy Minister
Lets do this together. A petition.
On Sept 29, Nur Farahanis Ezatty Adli, a 20 year old fake dentist was fined RM70,000 by the Sessions Court in Melaka for running a private dental clinic which was not registered under Section 27 of the Private Healthcare Facilities and Services Act 1998. She, however, was released from prison after serving only six days out of her six-month jail term after a few NGOs and public supporters rallied to collect money to fund the RM70000 court fine.
On the day of her release, the arrogant and non-remorseful criminal boasted on a post on her Instagram about getting support from Health Ministry officials. Subsequently, deputy Health minister Datuk Dr Hilmy Yahya issued a statement refuting her claim of his involvement but soon gave another statement that as the Balik Pulau Member of Parliament, he did extend Nur Farahanis Ezatty Adli’s appeal letter to the ministry's Oral Health Division director for consideration after being approached by a person representing Nurfarahanis. We Malaysian doctors view this recent sequence of event as very alarming.
If people start the mocking the law and view the political parties or high-ranking Ministry officials as an avenue to avert from being punished then it is a sorry state for a country like Malaysia. This deplorable situation can spread to every field or corners within the country and there will be no deterrent for such acts in the future.
The Medical community found this very demoralizing and would like to state a stand that we abhor such conduct not befitting to ethics and professionalism of medical bodies and professionals.
Any form of aiding criminals get their way must be stopped. we would like to ask for Datuk Dr Hilmy Yahya to apologise to the Malaysian public and healthcare personel for a serious misjudgment in appearing to support a person flouting the law.
