Death row Liberian Prisoner in Malaysia bites off  warden’s ear

KUALA LUMPUR: A prison warden in the Malaysian state of Pahang had his earlobe bitten off by an inmate on death row on Thursday (Sep 21).

The warden at the Bentong Prison Complex suffered a deep cut to his ear after the Liberian prisoner chewed two inches off his earlobe, the Malay Mail reported.

Bentong District Police chief Mohd Mansor Mohd Nor said the 37-year-old victim was rushed to Temerloh Hospital for treatment while the 46-year-old suspect was transferred to a separate cell.

“Initial investigations revealed that the incident occurred at 2.05pm when the victim and three other prison wardens were ordered to transfer the prisoner to an isolation block,” he said.

“However, the prisoner refused to be handcuffed and became aggressive by attacking the wardens.”

Mohd Mansor added: “The victim and another warden tried to restrain him. In the struggle, the victim was punched on the face, causing him to fall and the prisoner pinned him to the floor before biting off his left ear.”

The three other officials had to use force to release the victim and the prisoner was beaten and handcuffed before being taken to a separate block.

Mansor said the prisoner had earlier been transferred to Bentong Prison in 2016 after being sentenced to death on Aug 16, 2005 on heroin trafficking charges.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.
