Malaysia: Disabled people targeted by criminals

Posted 19/11-09 at 19.17

Criminals have been devising new ways to steal from disabled people. A recent example was the attack by machete wielding robbers of residents in the Independent Living and Training Centre (ILTC) in Rawang, Selangor.

The president of the ILTC had a special meeting with the police a couple of weeks earlier to discuss security issues for disabled people. One of these was that blind people had been victimised by strangers who offered to help them cross the road only to rob them. Blind women have also complained about being molested in public.
