IGP: GOF deployed at Raub to ensure public order after recent issue during durian plantation ops

KUALA LUMPUR: The General Operations Force (GOF) has been deployed to Raub, Pahang to ensure safety and public order following the recent issue involving durian farmers and local enforcement personnel there.

Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani (pic) urged those involved in the issue to adhere to the law.

"For sure, there are those who are not happy with the matter but they have to voice their unhappiness over actions by authorities in accordance with the law," he said after visiting Flat Sri Sabah in Cheras, which is placed under an enhanced movement control order.

The IGP said the police will not compromise in taking action against any party who disrupt the duties of the authorities.

"The issue of trespassing is under the jurisdiction of the Pahang Forestry Department.

"The police are there to ensure the safety of everyone involved," he said.

On Monday, Raub Magistrate's Court granted the remand of 18 Musang King durian farmers while Tras assemblyman Chow Yu Hui was also detained but released under police bail.

The state Forestry Department stated on Sunday (July 4) that the detainees were suspected of being illegal farmers and were detained for entering a permanent forest reserve area without permission and for making extreme provocations towards the department's personnel.

The operation to destroy illegal Musang King durian farms started Sunday (July 4) until Aug 2, involving various agencies including the police.
