Reacting to the inhuman behavior of the teacher, deputy women, family and community development minister Datuk Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff said stern action would be taken by the authorities concerned against the teacher.
She further informed that the investigation paper on the case has already been opened by the police.
The ministry may review the standard operating procedures (SOP) in all kindergarten and childcare centers in the country, she said following the incident.
Furthermore, the government has provided counselling sessions to the parents who were traumatised by the incident in which the teacher mistreated their child.
She stated that the government has taken appropriate steps to avoid a repeat, but that this could not be accomplished without the public’s help, she added.
“They can either report to the ministry’s Talian Kasih hotline at 15999 or directly inform the police as we do not want this kind of cruel act to take place in our society again,” she said.
