This has been all over Twitter and Facebook but just in case you haven’t heard about it yet…
Chin Xin-Ci was abducted at the Curve last Sunday evening and she managed to escape, thanks to her wits. I can only pray that other girls (that includes myself) can be as swift in action and thought. I don’t usually share stories like this (or the ones that go around on emails a lot) but this was just too close to home.
Please read her full account below, and SHARE it on FB.
As I sit here writing this, I am just so grateful to be alive.
To think that 30 hours ago I had a knife to my throat, face to face with the threat of being kidnapped and raped.
It was a Sunday, at 5.22PM. I was alone, walking towards my boyfriend’s car in level B2 of The Curve, Mutiara Damansara. He was not in town, and I was running errands with his car. Just as I was putting my shopping bags in the rear seat, the rear car door was slammed against my back, and a meat cleaver was pressed against my throat. A man covered my mouth with his hand, and whispered not to scream. He then shoved me onto the floor of the backseat of the car and waved the cleaver at me, reminding me not to scream. He was skinny, wearing a baggy turqoise blue t-shirt, had a thick moustache and short curly hair, approx 5’8″, mid-30s, and of Indian descent.
At this moment, second man appeared. He was also in his mid-30s. He was wearing a red t-shirt, had a crewcut, and was of Malay descent. He grabbed my car keys and demanded for my parking ticket. I couldn’t remember where it was. They shoved me deeper into the car, and the Indian man got into the back seat with me, while the Malay man got into the driver’s seat, driving us out of the carpark.
I told them they could take everything, just let me go. But at that point they didn’t even ask for money. Instead, the Indian man started to make sexual…...

...Kidnapping for ransom is a common occurrence in various parts of the world today, and certain cities and countries are often described as the "Kidnapping Capital of the World." As of 2007, that title belongs to Iraq with possibly 1,500 foreigners kidnapped.[22][23] In 2004, it was Mexico,[24] and in 2001, it was Colombia.[25] Statistics are harder to come by. Reports suggest a world total of 12,500-25,500/year with 3,600/year in Colombia and 3,000/year in Mexico around the year 2000.[26] However by 2006, the number of kidnappings in Colombia had declined to 687 and it continues to decline.[27] Mexican numbers are hard to confirm because of fears of police involvement in kidnapping.[28] "Kidnapping seems to flourish particularly in fragile states and conflict countries, as politically motivated militias, organized crime and the drugs mafia fill the vacuum left by government."[21] In 2009, the Los Angeles Times named Phoenix, Arizona[29] as America's kidnapping capital, reporting that every year hundreds of ransom kidnappings occur there, virtually all within the underworld associated with human and drug smuggling from Mexico, and often done as a way of collecting unpaid debts. Other major U.S. cities that are hotbeds for kidnappings are Detroit, Atlanta, New Orleans, Houston, and Chicago.[29] Many of them are done by major street gangs near tourist attractions. During the year 1999 in the United States, 203,900 children were reported as the victims of family abductions and......

Government of Malaysia V. Gurcharan Singh & Ors Case Review

...FACTS This case is about the government of Malaysia as the plaintiff whom had sued Gurcharan Singh the first defendant whom is a promisor of a contract and ORS as the second and third defendant whom act as the sureties of the contract for breaching the contract made between them. The contract is about the government of Malaysia providing the first defendant a scholarship for his study at Malayan Teacher’s Training Institution with an agreement that the first defendant will serve the government in consideration for being trained as a teacher. The duration of the contract is 5 years while the first defendant only served the government for 3 years 10 months only. However during the time the contract was made, the first defendant was in a minor state. The claim for the compensation for this case is $11,500. ISSUES There are three issues evolved in this case, these are: 1) Whether the contract made between them is a valid contract? 2) Whether the first defendant is liable on the claim for necessaries? 3) Whether the amount claimed or payable for compensation is reasonable and accepted regarding the case? DECISIONS The contract entered into by the first defendant was a void contract as he was an infant at the relevant time. Thus the principal debtor was not held liable and consequently the second and third defendants whom were the sureties of the contract also were not held liable. However, due to the exception on necessaries claim, the first defendant was therefore......

...more sustainable management. So far the most popular and successful of these activities has generally been private planting, because people are confident in this case that they will reap the benefits of their work. There is also a tradition of planting trees, particularly for fruit and fodder, on private land, whereas forest products from public land have traditionally been regarded as a "free good" in which no investment is necessary. If deforestation is to be reversed, or even slowed, this attitude will have to change. Any attempt at reforestation on the massive scale that is required will only succeed if there is commitment among local communities to invest their own time and labor in planting and protection of trees on community-owned land; and this will happen only if they believe that the benefits to them will be worth this investment. Management of common property resources is a complex business, and unlikely to succeed if imposed from outside; but to have any significant effect on the agricultural system as a whole there will have to be much more planting on public land than could be achieved by any project working in isolation. Communities will have to develop all sorts of rules governing protection, permissible livestock numbers, distribution of benefits and so on. In the past there have been many cases in Nepal of traditional management of existing communal forest, but many of these systems collapsed following the nationalization of all forest land in 1957.......

Case Study on Malaysia

...Case Study on Malaysia Malaysia is a multicultural society. Malaysia consists of three main ethnic groups, 50.4% being Malays, 23.7% Chinese, 11% indigenous people, 7.1% Indians and 7.8% other races. Due to its colonial past under the British rule, ethnicity has been an issue in Malaysia even up till this day. (Noor, 2013) Social identity is based on the assumption that society is structured into different social groups that that will lead to different statuses and power. In Malaysia it is largely based on race and religion. It is a known fact that Malays are given priority in many matters. The Malaysian government supports a Bumiputera centric policy; Bumiputera meaning sons of the soil, with the main intention of recognizing the Malays as the original settlers of the land. (Malaysia Today, 2014). Social categorization is when we segment our world into different groups and identify ourselves and the people around us into these different categories. Its is already mentioned above that in Malaysia, the malays are at the top. It doesn’t help that most of Malaysia’s leaders are muslim, with many prefering to label Malaysia as a Muslim country. Refering to a journal article, The Islamisation of Malaysia: Religious Nationalism in the service of ethnonationalism, The “Islamification” of this country has been ongoing since the 1980s, when Dr Mahathir became the prime minister. Religious identity seemed to have replaced ethnicity as the national identity. Since automatic......

Amar Mishra vs. State Of Delhi on 23 September, 2011 Section 359 Kidnapping □ Under federal and state law, kidnapping is commonly defined as the taking of a person from one place to another against his will or her will, or the confining of a person to a controlled space.

...Malaysia Where is Malaysia? Malaysia is situated in Southeast Asia, bordered by Thailand in the north, Indonesia in the south, and the Philippines in the east. The country has an area of 329,758 square kilometres. The Federation of Malaysia consists of 13 states, and is divided into 2 parts: 11 states are located in Peninsular Malaysia (also called West Malaysia) and 2 comprise East Malaysia, which is situated on the island of Borneo (see map).  How and why Malaysia has industrialised… Early Industrialisation, 1957-70 * Malaysia’s economy was geared to the export of primary commodities. These included Rubber, Palm Oil, Timber and Tin. At the time, manufacturing comprised 9%, much of it from the first industrial estate at Petaling Jaya outside Kuala Lumpur. Early industrialisation took the form of import substitution – the production of goods needed by the population, such as clothing. The New economic Policy, 1971-90 * Oil exports were fuelling the growth of export-orientated industries. Non-agricultural began to exceed agricultural employment. Various government initiatives and changing economic circumstances encouraged rapid growth of manufacturing. Exports grew by 26% per annum in 1970’s. * This was due to: * Need for newly independent state to break away from the stifling impact of colonialism on economy * Continuing emphasis on resource based industries – rubber, palm oil, timber, tin * Creation of industrial estates near state capitals ...

The Lindbergh Kidnapping

...The Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping Jeff Harris 5/19/2015 There are three main parts that make up our criminal justice system in America, the police, courts, and corrections. The Lindbergh baby, Charles Lindbergh Jr., was kidnapped from his bed sometime between the hours of 7:30pm and 10pm on March 1, 1932. ( He was suffering from a cold and was left to drift off to sleep by his nanny, Betty Gow, with the window open. ( When his father came to check on him and found him gone, he found a note demanding a $50,000 ransom. Three days later, another ransom note was found demanding $70,000. March 9, 1932 a man named John F. Condon, a retired teacher, claimed to have made contact with the kidnappers. He placed an ad in the Bronx Home News offering to be an intermediary. Mr. Condon alleged to have met with the kidnapper in several graveyards. He used the alias “Jafsie” and he dubbed the kidnapper “Graveyard John.” ( The ransom was delivered on April 2, 1932 and the parents were told they could find the child on a boat off the Massachusetts coast called Nelly. The baby was not there. Finally, on May 12, 1932 the baby was found less than a mile from the New Jersey mansion. He had been dead from a fractured skull since the night he was taken.

Crisis Communication and the Case Study of Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight Mh370

...CRISIS COMMUNICATION AND THE CASE STUDY OF MISSING MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT MH370 I. Literature review In a ‘vulnerable’ society that has been easily affected by many different types of crises such as natural and man-made disasters, in disregard of where you live and what you do, no community or organization is immune from crisis. In order to provide clear definitions and deeper understanding crises of all types, scholars have developed theories to handle these events. A wide range of crisis fields are studied including psychology (Morgan et al., 2002), sociology (Clarke & Chess, 2008) or political perspective (Birkland, 2006). In addition, other research involved communicating in crisis (Reynolds, 2002). All of these disciplines, even different, combine to build a theoretical background on various approaches to crisis communication and contribute to establish crisis response guidelines for organizations. Among the prominent theories on crisis communication, the Situational Crisis Communication Theory generates a link between Attribution Theory firstly built by Fritz Heider in the early part of the 20th century which addresses the processes by which individuals explain the causes of behavior and events and crisis response strategies which represent what an organization does and says after a crisis. To protect reputation, it is crucial for the organization to consist the responsibility acceptance of the crisis response with the stakeholder attributions. Coombs......

It was only recently the U.S. courts demanded that the child be returned. The parent, or parents, that the child is taken from may feel that their lives are over. They go through many emotions ranging from sad to angry. First they have to deal with the fact that their child is now gone and then go through the stressful process of trying to find them and get them back. Ask any parent of an abducted child and they will say that the wait is the hardest. Not knowing whether or not their child is alive, waiting for that phone call that will decide the rest of their lives for them. That is a phone call many of the parents get. Most abducted children do not return home, having begun a new life, if it was a parent or relative abductor, or being abused and killed by an unfamiliar abductor.

Kidnapping in Colombia

...Case Study-Kidnapped In Colombia 1. The company made a number of mistakes in preparing Melissa and Dan for their trip to Columbia. First off the company should have never let the couple go into such a hostile territory uninsured. Kidnappings were a frequent happening in Colombia; therefore, the company should have provided some sort of ransom insurance in case something was to ever happen. Granted the couple were warned about the political troubles and violence in Colombia, they were never really safeguarded against potential crimes. In addition, the company didn’t prepare the couple for the language barrier in Colombia. Purchasing everyday merchandise or communicating with the locals on a day to day basis was really hard. The company should have either provided a translator who could be at the couple’s service whenever needed, or the couple should have taken some sort of introductory course to help them learn the basics of the language. And lastly, the organization should have provided better protection for the couple as a whole. Did the company make its best effort to put them in the safest possible region in the country? As a valued member of the organization, Dan should have received the best possible protection from the company. 2. Dan and Melissa also made a lot of blunders in preparation for this trip. For one they didn’t prepare themselves. They should have conducted more research on the country and understood the cultural similarities and differences. They......
