Bolster unity and security measures

THE recent operations undertaken by the police to curb terror threats in the city centre in conjunction with the 2017 SEA Games was commendable and well received by the general public (The Star, Aug 8 – Foreigners rounded up in police raid cleared of terror ties). Kudos to the Bukit Aman Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division for their finely strategised effort in not only sensing and identifying the movements of underworld threats but also stifling them from per­meating further into our society.

The massive number of foreigners arrested, especially those syndicates involved in the forgery of international passports, identification cards and border passes, as well as the spread of negative views implying that our security system has many loopholes and can be manipulated by criminal minds for advancing their heinous activities, is frightening.
