Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the man was arrested on Thursday after a police team stopped a car in Kampung Lindungan here.
“Checks showed that the car was being driven by a 34-year-old policeman with five passengers, all foreigners without valid documents. The police, led by the suspect, inspected a house in the same area and found three more foreigners.
“A marriage registration booklet from an Indonesian religious authority belonging to the suspect and a book containing payment details were also seized,” he said in a statement yesterday.
All the eight foreigners were detained on suspicion of being involved in human smuggling.
During questioning, the suspect also started threatening a JIPS officer.
“The suspect accused the complainant of incriminating him and said he would do the same in return,” ACP Nik Ezanee said.
