NS trainees to report on Jan 1

KUALA LUMPUR: The first batch of national service trainees for the year 2007, will report for training on Jan 1 as scheduled, although it falls on a public holiday.

This is because their training stint is shorter only 70 days after deducting other public holidays, said NS deputy director-general (Training) Mohd Tajuddin Don.

Denying an allegation about the shortage of doctors at training camps resulting in sick trainees not given proper treatment, he said doctors who attended to trainees would give them basic treatment and send them to nearby hospitals if their condition was serious. Bernama
