KUANTAN – Pahang Police chief Datuk Seri Sharifuddin Abdul Ghani today advised police officers and personnel in the state to use the stairs more often.

“If you want to go up to the second or third floor, it is better to use the stairs,” he said when advising police officers and personnel in the state to take care of their health and not become overweight or obese.

“Refraining from using the lift can also help to save electricity,” he told reporters after attending the Pahang Police headquarters monthly assembly here.

Sharifuddin said being overweight or obese would reduce their chances of getting promoted, as was stated recently by Bukit Aman Director of Management Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah.

“We need to adopt a healthy lifestyle, including by participating in the physical and aerobic exercises to be held every Friday from now on,” he said.

He said policemen aged 40 and above would be required to see their doctor at least twice a year and would be monitored by department heads and district police chiefs.

Earlier, in his speech, Sharifuddin said the crime index in Pahang last year had declined by 15.96 per cent or 882 cases compared to the previous year.

He said that based on the state CID crime index statistics report, 4,645 criminal cases were reported last year compared to 5,527 in the previous year.

The number of criminal cases resolved increased to 50.87 per cent last year from 50.14 per cent the previous year. – BERNAMA

Meanwhile, crime analyst Kamal Affandi Hashim advised members of the public against spreading unverified information particularly those involving security.

BANGKOK – The authority in southern Thailand’s district of Pak Phanang will bring aviation experts to inspect the suspected wreckage of a plane found off the coast of Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Pak Phanang’s district police officer, Police Sub Lt It Paijit Pongkaew said the suspected wreckage would be brought to the district police station for the experts from the aviation sector and the country’s air force to inspect it.

“We are in the process of contacting the relevant authorities, especially from the aviation sector and also the air force, to enable them to better inspect the suspected wreckage of the plane,” he told Bernama here via telephone from Pak Phanang, Sunday.

The wreckage found, he said, had been placed at the sub-district chief’s house in Pak Phanang for security reason before the authority moved it to the police station.

Yesterday, local villagers living off the coast of Nakhon Si Thammarat in southern Thailand, reported the discovery of a large metal object, measuring two metres wide and three metres long, suspected to originate from a plane.

The find, off the shore of southern Thailand, has prompted the country’s media to speculate that the suspected plane wreckage might be related to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which disappeared during a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing two years ago.

The flight carried 239 passengers on board.

According to It Paijit, despite the debris found at the shore of Nakhon Si Thammarat resembling an aircraft part, he nevertheless could not conclusively determine it without obtaining advice from the experts.

“It (the suspected wreckage) looks like from an aircraft, but let the experts examine the object first,” he said, adding that the process to transport the suspected wreckage to the district’s police station could take two hours. – BERNAMA

KUALA LUMPUR – The Special Action Unit (UTK) of the police force is to be beefed up with more assets and better training for the personnel, said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

He said the purchase of assets and provision of better training beginning this year were to enhance the preparedness of the elite unit of the force in facing any security threat.

“Although the unit has been provided with assets periodically, I feel it has to be given new assets in accordance to current needs,” said Ahmad Zahid, who is also the Home Minister, after attending the 41st anniversary celebration of the unit at the Cheras Federal Reserve Unit Complex here.

On the training, he said four countries had offered skills training abroad for police personnel, especially from the Special Action Unit.

“One of these countries is in North America, another is in Europe and two are in Asia,” he told reporters, but declined to name the countries.

Ahmad Zahid said that in appreciation of the UTK’s 41 years of service to the nation, the government would put up a building for the unit, construction of which would begin this year.

“The UTK has provided excellent service for 41 years and has carved a name for itself not only in the country but also regionally and globally,” he said.

Earlier, in his address at the event, Ahmad Zahid said non-monetary remuneration for the UTK officers and personnel in the form of assets should be increased for the unit to continue to perform well.

“We know there is sadness behind the excellence … the (UTK) building is still wooden. I pledge that the UTK will get a new building this year and have new assets as well,” he said.

He also said that besides the assets, the government and the Home Ministry were working on improving the UTK Personal Integrated Tactical System (PITS) “from head to toe”.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Noor Rashid Ibrahim; Department of Internal Security and Public Order, Bukit Aman, Datuk Muhammad Fuad Abu Bakar; UTK Commander Datuk Hazani Ghazali and retired IGP Tun Mohammed Hanif Omar were also present at the event.

The UTK was set up on Jan 1, 1975, by Mohammed Hanif when he was the IGP, and has the motto “Tangkas Banteras Ganas” (Quick to Overcome Terror).

It comprises selected officers and personnel who undergo special training in tackling terrorism. – BERNAMA

KUCHING – Police shot dead four suspected robbers early today following a car chase and a confrontation in an oil palm plantation near Bintulu, about 600km from here.

They recovered a Toyota Vios car, a shotgun, a parang, a sabit and house-breaking tools as well as several watches believed to be the loot from robberies, said Sarawak Commissioner of Police Datuk Seri Muhammad Sabtu Osman.

He said the men did not have identification documents on them but police believe they were involved in at least three armed robberies in Bintulu last month.

Muhammad Sabtu said three police teams on crime-prevention patrol in Bintulu spotted four men in a Toyota Vios car behaving in a manner that raised suspicion at Jalan Tun Hussein Onn at about 1am.

When the men spotted the police, they drove off fast towards Miri, he said, adding that the policemen gave chase.

At Km42 of Jalan Bintulu-Miri, the car attempted to turn into the Ladang Maskat oil palm plantation, but veered off and crashed onto the road shoulder, he said in a statement.

Muhammad Sabtu said that when the policemen approached the car, they heard several gunshots and responded by opening fire.

They saw two men alight from the car and run into the plantation and a few of the policemen chased them, he said.

As the policemen neared the duo, they turned around and rushed at them, swinging a parang and a sabit, he said.

The policemen shot at the men in self-defence, felling them in their tracks, he said.

“A tactical search conducted after the shootout confirmed that all four men were dead.

“One suspect was slumped in the driver’s seat of the car, the second was found on the (front) passenger side with a sawn-off shotgun beside him.

“The other two suspects were in the oil palm plantation not far from the car with the parang and sabit beside their bodies,” he said.

Muhammad Sabtu said the car was reported stolen in Bintulu in July last year.

“No identification documents were found on the suspects, who are believed to have been involved in three armed robberies in Bintulu in December 2015, the latest on Dec 29,” he said.

He said the men were also believed to have been involved in several cases in Miri and Sibu last year.

Muhammad Sabtu congratulated the Sarawak CID, especially the D9 teams, for the success and said the teams had been in Bintulu over the past one month working tirelessly to gather intelligence and track down the robbers.

“They had sacrificed spending the holidays with their families and finally brought the curtain down on this group,” he said.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar conveyed his congratulations on the success via a post on his Twitter account. – BERNAMA

SHAH ALAM – The police have busted a fake forex investment syndicate following the arrest of the suspected mastermind and an accomplice and seizure of RM2.7 million on Sunday.

The money is believed to be part of the loot which the syndicate had fleeced from victims in their fraudulent activities.

Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department deputy director, Datuk Wira Hamza Taib said the arrest of the two suspects followed a complaint from a 27-year-old female Chinese entrepreneur.

The woman was said to have incurred losses amounting to millions of ringgit when she fell prey to the syndicate.

Hamza said in the 1.15am raid, the police arrested the 50-year-old suspected mastermind man and seized some items which were used to deceive victims and recovered the RM2.7 million cash.

“Upon interrogation, the suspect led to the arrest of a 34-year-old accomplice in the parking lot of a shopping centre in Lingkaran Syed Putra, Kuala Lumpur, on the same day,” he told reporters at the Selangor police headquarters here today.

The police also seized a Toyota Vellfire, a Honda CRV and a number of other items including mobile phones, fake passports, fake identity cards and several house keys.

According to Hamza, the syndicate’s modus operandi was to lure potential victims by offering lucrative profits from forex investments and by showing off their opulent houses and luxury vehicles to convince them.

“Syndicate members kept changing the company’s name and used non-existent identities such as fake passports and fake identification cards to conduct their activities to avoid detection by the authorities,” he said.

He said the two suspects were remanded until today to facilitate investigations for cheating.

Meanwhile, Hamza said from January to November last year, the department received 131 reports related to fraudulent foreign exchange
trading involving losses of about RM32.2 million. – BERNAMA
