According to statistics presented by outgoing Sarawak Commissioner of Police DCP Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani, a total of 1,425
investigations have taken place
so far, with 55 arrests made since the operation commenced in August.
“From a list published recently
by the Home Ministry, there are
16 names of wanted individuals associated with gangsterism in Sarawak.
“The criminals whom we
arrested during the operation
included those wanted for housebreaking cases, car thefts and armed robberies.
“The police will continue to monitor and assess the situation in Kuching closely, seeing as we do not use the Prevention of Crime Act 1959. However rest assured that
we are doing all we can to bring these wanted criminals to justice,” he said.
Meanwhile DCP Acryl, who handed over duties to the new police commissioner Datuk Wira Muhammad Sabtu Osman yesterday, added that there were too many fond memories of his time spent here in the state.
“My time here in Sarawak has been very meaningful, and I am very thankful for all the support that I have received throughout.
“Although there were times when the police were criticised harshly
by the public, I hope that members of the force would be able to take these criticisms in stride and also as a challenge to constantly improve themselves to better serve the
people,” he said.
With the transfer of duties yesterday, DCP Acryl will be resuming his duties as police chief in his home state of Perak.
