KUALA LUMPUR: A full report on illegal activities in Sungai Buloh has been submitted to the Inspector-General of Police.
Bukit Aman Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS) director Comm Datuk Zamri Yahya said the department conducted a comprehensive investigation for 10 days in Sungai Buloh.
“A team from JIPS was sent there to investigate every aspect of the allegations of illegal activities said to have occurred there.
“We have submitted the full report to the IGP last Friday, ” he told reporters after witnessing the handover ceremony for the KL CPO yesterday.
He said Sungai Buloh police conducted 447 raids on illegal gambling dens and detained 665 people from last year up to July this year.
On allegations that Sungai Buloh police personnel and officers were working together with gambling syndicates, Comm Zamri said the department inspected the assets and wealth of police officers.
“They live within their means. For example, Sungai Buloh OCPD Supt Shafa’aton Abu Bakar owns a house worth about RM400,000.
“There is no unusual amount of wealth owned by any police personnel or officer, ” he said.
Comm Zamri said JIPS also made a recommendation for Sungai Buloh police to conduct more integrated operations on illegal gambling dens with local authorities and relevant agencies.
Early last month, Mohd Asri Hamid, known as Asri Janggut, went on Facebook Live alleging that police were in cahoots with gambling syndicates and the smuggling of fake cigarettes was also rampant.
He also complained of unfair action by the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) in seizing his burger stall.The Facebook Live videos, which went viral on Aug 8, received more than three million views.
Since then, eight MBSA personnel and an officer have been detained by authorities.
