The baby at the time of this recording was 8 months old, and her abusive mother, 19 years old. The one woman who was supposed to care and nuture her, beat her for four minutes +.
This woman is clearly completely incompetent to look after this child and the child is returned to herim sure she will suffer a terrible fate.
This woman is a danger to ALL children and should be kept locked up for the safety of others. To think that this baby may be returned to this evil woman at the end of November when her sentence finishes, is disgraceful.
According to news article, and a press-release by the Royal Malaysian Police, the woman video-recording was afraid to intervene due to her friends unpredictable violent outbursts, but was concerned for the babies safety after witnessing the woman abusing her on previous occasions, there has even been claims that this lady has beaten other peoples children.
At one point, she shouts at the woman, telling her she will kill the baby girl--that is the gravity of this woman's ability to harm.
According to Arjunaidi Mohamed, the Chief of Police in Petaling Jaya, the suburb of Kuala Lumpur where the attack took place once this video was recorded the lady took it to police as evidence and the woman was arrested later that day.
The baby girl is currently in foster care and doing 'very well' according to the Deputy Director of the Children Division of the Social Welfare Department. The Director added that monthly checks are made on the family who is of no relation to the mother.
There was circulated speculation that the mother had been raped before committing the atrocities but the police stated this was false and attributed her actions to simple “frustration.”
She is currently serving a sentence of only 18 months due to end NOVEMBER 2012. Before the courts make a decision as to whether or not the child should be returned to her custody, she will go through a rigorous evaluation.
We have six months to get as many signitures as possible before this petition will be submitted to all relevant parties.
This woman should NEVER receive custody of her daughter, or any other children, again. She should have her sentence extended to reflect the seriousness of her crimes and to make sure that in the future she never has the parental responsibilty any responsibilty of looking after a child.

Thanks to Veronica for taking the time to find these contact details, your support is appreciated.
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Court and Police Chiefs of Petaling Jaya.
Extend this abusive woman's sentence. Never return the baby to this mother.
This poor, defenseless, eight month old baby has suffered terribly. And she was made to suffer by the one woman who was supposed to provide love and nurturing. Instead, she beat her for four minutes. And this is just the one time it was recorded. This abuse was captured on camera by a former housemate, afraid of confronting her.
This woman is clearly completely incompetent to look after this child and if child is returned to her, she will surely suffer a terrible fate. This woman is a danger to children and should be kept locked up for the safety of others.
We do not feel the 18 month sentence, imposed in May, 2011, was a sufficient, just sentence for a crime of such barbarity and violence. Clearly, the courts must consider that this baby, and all other children should continue to be protected, and this woman should remain in jail.
This mother's sentence should provide a warning to other people who abuse their children. Such a light sentence sends no warning message. And we feel that a longer sentence is worthy.
