KUCHING: Sarawak police will continue to carry out Ops Cantas Kenyalang against gangsterism this year, said state Deputy Commissioner of Police SAC I Datuk Abdul Rahman Hussin. 

"Gangsterism is an ongoing problem, so there will be no let-up in our action against this menace," he said after witnessing the handover of duties from outgoing CID head SAC II Datuk Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah to acting head ACP Zainuddin Zainal at state police headquarters here on Monday. 

Ops Cantas Kenyalang was launched last April after the problem of gangsterism in Sarawak was highlighted in Parliament by Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing. 

Meanwhile ACP Zainuddin said he would continue to implement the various strategies put in place by SAC Tun Hisan to combat gangsterism, including keeping close tabs on entertainment outlets, taking joint action with other police departments and intensifying anti-gangsterism operations such as Ops Cantas Kenyalang. 

"We will not compromise on gangsterism but will do our best to stamp it out," he added. 

Tun Hisan has been promoted to the rank of SAC I and appointed deputy police chief of Johor after serving nine months as Sarawak's CID head.
