Netizens Wants #JusticeForKogi Who Was Fired For Wearing Shirt Saying “Abolish GST”

After 12 years of serving as an executive manager at Bank Negara Malaysia, Kohi Kogi was fired on July 19, 2017, for wearing a shirt saying “Abolish GST” on a public holiday. She allegedly wore the shirt on Labor Day, May 1, 2016.

Kohila was ordered to pack up her belongings and leave Bank Negara Malaysia premises within one hour, without any prior notice to her dismissal.

As soon as she was fired, her every move was monitored by auxiliary police. Items that were filled with 12 years of memories were forced to be packed in a rush under surveillance. Kohila was later escorted out of Bank Negara Malaysia premises like a criminal.

When Kohila returned to Bank Negara Malaysia to present a letter of appeal to Tan Sri Muhammad Ibrahim, Kohila was not allowed to enter. Bank Negara Malaysia has deployed Kohila’s photos to all aid policemen with special instructions to prevent Kohila even if the premises were open to the public.

After discussing, two auxiliary police escorted Kohila in and monitored her gestures. Only after 45 minutes Tan Sri Muhammad Ibrahim’s personal assistant came and took Kohila’s letter of appeal. However, the former Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia dismissed Kohila’s appeal without proving any reason.

Now, the new government under the leadership of the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir has already announced the abolition of the GST. Since June 1, 2018, GST rates have been set at 0%. Additionally, on June 8, 2018, Tan Sri Muhammad Ibrahim has also resigned as Governor of Bank.

However, Kohila still remained fired for practicing her rights by wearing an “Abolish GST” shirt on a public holiday. Kohila’s dismissal did not comply with any provisions of the law. On the other hand, Kohila’s fundamental rights and rights of every worker in Malaysia are generally violated by employers’ actions just like in Bank Negara Malaysia.

A memorandum regarding Kohila’s dismissal was sent to the Prime Minister’s Office by PSM and NGO Jerit. Bank Negara Malaysia should take back Kohila to continue her service.

It is wrong for the former Governor of Bank Negara to sack Kohila only under the allegation of wearing a shirt with an unpleasant quote. She has just as many rights as anyone else in our country to speak her heart! 

What are your thoughts on this?

    The former governor of Bank Negara should be sued for damages by the human rights group on behalf of Kohila. Then she should be given her job back and the whole top person of the HR dept in Bank Negara should be dismissed for allowing it to happen. Then re-education for the whole dept.
