We have received reports that Werdy Kasim has left Jakarta and turned up in Makassar (formerly known as Ujung Pandang), the capital city of South Sulawesi province.
Werdy Kasim has been one of the most scandal-tainted of the figures associated with Indonesia’s multi-language schools. He is known as the ‘right hand man’ of Husein Lee, the founder of International Language Center, and Lee has allowed Kasim a lot of leeway in managing the human resources side of the business. It is said that the compulsory short skirts and no jilbabs policy was the brainchild of Kasim.
The most worrying thing about Kasim’s reputation is allegations that he was fired from Celebrity Fitness for sexual assaults in his time there. According to out source, he is alleged to a serial sex offender who simply cannot be trusted around women. That such a man is recruiting staff at ILC has prompted anger and outrage from some people at ILC.
Anyway, it now appears that the controversial Pak Kasim has not left Jakarta and turned up in Makassar at World Language Academy, one of numerous spin-off multi-language schools which have mushroomed around Indonesia. Customers of WLA are warned to be very careful around Werdy Kasim. They would, in fact, we wise to avoid WLA altogether.
