THE Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) will continue to hold joint raids to nab illegal immigrants within the city.
“The joint raid carried out by MBSA, Police and Immigration Department in Kota Kemuning and Taman Sri Muda, Shah Alam had rounded up more than 80 illegal immigrants, mostly comprising Bangladeshi and Myanmar nationals.
“We were also informed about immigrants in Subang 2 and Sungai Buloh. We plan to conduct raids in these areas in the future,’’ said Mohd Jaafar at the MBSA full board meeting in Shah Alam.
When asked what the council would do regarding businesses such as pubs, grocery shops and restaurants operated by foreigners in Taman Sri Muda, Mohd Jaafar said the council would have to carry out checks before taking action.
Mohd Jaafar said 35 projects by individuals and developers had been abandoned along Jalan Kebun, Shah Alam.
“MBSA will meet all developers and individuals in the area next year to see how the projects could be revived,’’ he said.
Meanwhile, an MBSA staff, Mohd Latif Sapup from the council’s Licensing and Enforcement Department had won a gold medal at the South-East Asia Dart Championship held in Bangkok, Thailand earlier this month.
He was chosen to represent South-East Asia in the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship, which will be held in Alexandra Palace, London between Dec 14 and Jan 1.
“MBSA has agreed to sponsor 50% of the cost to send Mohd Latif and his team manager, Azmi Arif. I am requesting MSBA Sports Club, National Sports Council, Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim and Selangor Exco member in charge of sports to sponsor the remaining 50% of the cost,’’ he said.
