TH to fully cooperate with task force on haj

KUALA LUMPUR: Lembaga Tabung Haji (TH) is committed to participating in the special task force established by the police to address issues of stranded pilgrims and fraudulent haj packages, says its group managing director and chief executive officer Syed Hamadah Syed Othman.

He said TH would provide all necessary information to the authorities for their probe in accordance with relevant laws.

“The goal of the special task force is to tackle these issues comprehensively and to help stop crimes and fraud related to haj arrangements in the country,” he said in a statement yesterday, Bernama reported.

Syed Hamadah explained that issues related to stranded pilgrims, fraudulent haj packages and visa misuse could involve violations of different laws and fall under the purview of various authorities.

“This includes TH, the police, the Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry, and the Saudi authorities.”

On May 30, Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf said the police had established the special task force, which will collaborate with relevant agencies to ensure further action is taken.
