Malaysian man dumps wife for being a demon

A Malaysian man abandoned his wife after a temple medium convinced him that she was a demon who wanted to kill him.

The local Star newspaper on Thursday quoted the wife, who gave her name as Loh, as saying that her factory manager husband now wants a divorce and also refuses to meet their two teenage children for fear his wife will use them to kill him.

“The medium told my husband I had been casting spells on him for the past 15 years,” Loh was quoted as telling a news conference in Kuala Lumpur.

“He refused to eat or drink at home because he thought I poisoned the food.”

Loh said the medium was heavily in debt and likely taking advantage of her husband, who had withdrawn their childrens’ savings before deserting the family.

There has been a steady increase in complaints of cheating and sexual abuse in the country, which has prompted the government to announce it will table a bill this year requiring faith healers to register with the Ministry of Health. — Reuters
