With the new government running the country for the past month, a lot of changes have taken place, and prominent heads and CEOs, including Bank Negara Malaysia’s (BNM) governor, have started to resign from their positions following Pakatan Harapan’s takeover.
Now, amidst all these changes, one Malaysian is hoping to get her job back after claiming that she was unfairly fired under the previous Barisan Nasional (BN) government.
According to Free Malaysia Today, a former BNM employee reportedly did not receive any advance notice when she was unexpectedly fired in July 2017 after working for the central bank for 12 years. She claimed that she was unfairly fired for wearing an anti-GST shirt at a Labour Day rally back in 2016.
Y. Kohila, 43, was reportedly investigated by her former employer after she was accused of writing two press statements supporting Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) during the 13th general elections. She told The Star,
“I want my job back. It was an unfair dismissal. There was no evidence to show that I did anything wrong or tarnished the image of the bank.”
“As a citizen, it is my right to participate in civil and political organisations. What I did was my business and I did not tarnish the name of the bank. I did the best in my job.
“Most workers in Malaysia are afraid to voice out their opinions openly because they are scared of losing their job. That’s why I am fighting this.”
Just yesterday (11th June), Kohila, along with the Oppressed People’s Network (Jerit) and PSM members, went to the Prime Minister’s Office to hand over a memorandum in hopes that she will be re-employed by Bank Negara. She had also met with Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran at his office in Putrajaya that same day.
Let’s hope the Prime Minister’s Office and other relevant bodies look into this matter thoroughly and help Kohila out!
