WOMEN, Family and Community Development Minister Rina Mohd Harun said the RM5,000 fine issued to Rumah Bonda Welfare Organisation (Rumah Bonda) Care Centre was not at her discretion but based on existing laws.
She said there were allegations that she was protecting the shelter, but she said the fine was based on current set procedure.
“A lot of slanders have been thrown at me, saying that I protect Rumah Bonda and so on.
“You have to understand that, according to the act, the compound is RM5,000 and it is not me who decides.
“I do not issue summonses as I please, it’s not my discretion. It is according to the existing law as enshrined in the act,” she said in Kuantan today.
Yesterday, the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development in a statement denied that Rina had conspired to protect Rumah Bonda, describing the accusation as baseless and defamatory.
The ministry said that all actions taken by the Social Welfare Department (JKM) since July 2021 on the centre were based on legal provisions.
The statement referred to a post uploaded to Instagram on June 12, criticising the fine imposed on Rumah Bonda and accused Rina of protecting the care centre. – Bernama, June 18, 2022.
