Man seeks refund following failed exorcism

The Consumer Claims Tribunal in Malaysia has seen some rather peculiar cases over the last few years.
The tribunal, which was set up to offer consumers the opportunity to file claims as inexpensively as possible, has revealed several of its more unusual cases, such as that of a woman who wanted a refund from her private investigator who had disappeared after being paid to locate her husband.

Perhaps the strangest case of all however was that of a 40-year-old man who wanted a refund from a bomoh ( shaman ) who had failed to exorcise nine ghosts from his elderly father.
"The 'bomoh' charged RM90 (S$30) for each exorcism to free the man's father of the spirits," said Samuel Mut John Brody, head of the Consumer Claims Tribunal in Johor.

"So, the family forked out RM810 to the 'bomoh' to get rid of the nine spirits. The man said his father's condition worsened and he died a few months later."

Displeased with the bomoh's services, the man approached the tribunal to demand a refund for "non-delivery of service." The case was ultimately thrown out however as the exorcism was considered an 'alternative service' and the bomoh was not registered as a business.

The tribunal had to strike out the case as it was out of its jurisdiction. - See more at: http://news.asiaone.com/news/malaysia/man-seeks-refund-bomoh-failed-exorcism#sthash.77HTlnnt.dpuf I would have striked it out because they were out of their mind.   This is the problem with believing in all this woohoo, when the "results" are not in their favour, they are  let down even more. best let nature take its course and deal with it naturally. We are all going to go and there is no woohoo man who can change that.

Is that the possesser suing, or the possessee?  I'd have to make that damned clear first. (I'm secretly hoping we get as many of these completely absurd stories of possession, and others like ouija board gullibility, orbs, more from the church of bigfootery, crop circles, ancient aliens, and anything else that's just as laughable and just as unreal before the year ends--come on people, pile it on!)

So have churches been sued? Shocker, word back home ole boy(wasAtheistic) into Big Time Crime, opened a couple churches. Pretty good kohl:::" "The man said his father's condition worsened and he died a few months later." The family went to the tribunal seeking a refund for the non-delivery of service. The tribunal had to strike out the case as it was out of its jurisdiction. "

Noooooo, we can not sue the demons, we are suing the bomoh, cos he did not get rid of the demons...I reckon they saw him coming and did a runner.

This is why Singapore will always be better than Malaysia and why they are so envious of us; they let religion and superstition run their government and country, instead of logic, reason and secular politics.

Demons, huh? Maybe it was dementia. Or Alzheimer's. *rubs chin* Well, demons would have been a lot more fun.

So he essentially hired a faith healer instead of a doctor, and now he wants to sue the faith healer because his Father died.  Yeah no...he's not getting that money back. But the worst part about it is he's not getting his Father back.

I wonder how you get registered as a business when you're an exorcist.
