CIVIL SERVICE: At mercy of 'powerful' clerk

I HAD the misfortune of dealing with a clerk at the Education Ministry's "Bahagian Pendidikan Guru" last week.

I wanted   to hand over a letter of appeal for a cancellation of transfer for my wife.

My wife requested three times to see the  director of the Tamil schools' section. Each time, the clerk said "tak boleh".

We  had no choice but to hand over the letter to the clerk. Two days later, I rang  the director's personal assistant regarding the matter. He said he did not receive the letter.

It seems that a clerk has absolute power in the office.

My wife is desperate and is at wits' end as to what to do. Her medical condition needs her to visit a  specialist frequently in Kuala Lumpur.
