JPJ detain 29 foreigners and seize 25 vehicles during recent operation

KUALA LUMPUR: Twenty nine foreigners were detained for various offences during a Road Transport Department (JPJ) operation here.

Federal Territories JPJ director Mohd Zaki Ismail said his department conducted an operation to weed out illegal immigrant motorists on Thursday (Dec 2).

"The operation was held together with the Immigration Department between 9am and 12pm and involved 42 JPJ personnel and 10 Immigration Department personnel.

"We checked 750 vehicles and took action on 62 during the operation," he told reporters at the scene near Taman Tasek Tambahan here on Thursday.

He said they seized five lorries, two vans and 18 motorcycles.

"We issued notices for not having licenses (72), not having goods driving licenses (nine), driving with expired insurance (10) and technical offences (27).

"A total of 29 foreigners were also detained for not having valid documents.

"It is unfair for them to share the road with motorists especially when some of them do not have valid insurance or licenses," he said adding that the operation would be ongoing.
