It has been confirmed by the Health Ministry there has been 38 reports of sexual harassment cases involving housemen.
Its minister, Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad, said the reports were obtained by an independent inquiry body based on the number of victims who came forward to report about these cases to the ministry via emails and letters.
He added, there has yet to be verification of the reports which has been made since the organisational body has yet to provide the ministry with a detailed explanation of these reports.
“We have heard it thoroughly and we will receive full information when a special presentation is made.”

The independent investigation body has also agreed to provide recommendations on steps to prevent this situation from recurring.
“As soon as a black and white report is received from the body next week, we will study it first before presenting it to the cabinet the following week,” he said.
It had been reported that several female housemen in a hospital at Klang Valley had been sexually harassed by its orthopaedics department head.
