Police brutality has become a serious issue, especially after the murder of George Floyd in the United States. Not comparing to the magnitude of what happened to George Floyd, Malaysia has its cases of seemingly police brutality as well.

video of a police officer kicking a man during an arrest on 1 June has gone viral and is currently being investigated, said Kuala Lumpur police chief Mazlan Lazim.

The video shows the officer clad in his uniform repeatedly kicking a man sitting on his motorcycle at the side of a road while another police officer loses his balance and tumbles to the ground.

As the first police officer continues to kick the man, the other officer puts up his hand, gesturing for him to stop.

According to FMT, Mazlan said that policemen from the Wangsa Maju district police headquarters were making their rounds along Jalan Genting Klang in the afternoon, when they spotted two men on a motorcycle behaving suspiciously.

They had ordered the two men to stop, but the men refused to obey and fled towards Jalan Ampang with the police in pursuit. The men then rode against traffic but failed to control their motorcycle and crashed, with one of them escaping after jumping into a drain while the other was left on the side of the road.

The suspect – who was kicked by the officer – was arrested while investigations are being carried out on the police officer.

“Regarding the video of the arrest that is now viral on social media, an internal investigation is being carried out to ensure no standard operating procedures were broken during the arrest,” Mazlan said.

“The police will not compromise and will take stern action against any officer or staff who goes against SOPs when carrying out their duty.”

Meanwhile, the suspect tested positive for methamphetamine, had two criminal records linked to narcotics and was under investigation for a break-in in Ampang.

An investigation paper has been opened under Section 186 of the Penal Code for obstructing police from carrying out their duties, an offence that carries a jail term of up to two years or a fine of up to RM10,000 or both upon conviction.

The suspect is also being investigated under Section 15 (1) (a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, which provides for a fine not exceeding RM5,000 or a jail term not exceeding two years upon conviction.

Police raided an apartment at Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah in Georgetown, Penang where several birthday parties were being held. A total of 20 people, including a few under-aged kids, were detained.

In the first raid that took place at about 10.30pm on 1 June, eight male and three female students, aged between 13 and 17, were detained. Urine tests revealed that six were tested positive for drugs, reported China Press.

Police also discovered and seized about 2gm of ketamine at the apartment unit.

The teens are now being remanded for four days while the case is being investigated under Section 12(3) and 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act, according to northeast district police chief Assistant Commissioner Soffian Santong.

“They are also investigated under Rules 7 (1) of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures within the Infected Local Areas) Regulations 2020 (Regulation),” he said today.

Several minutes later, the police conducted a second raid in the same premises and found seven men and two women, aged between 14 and 20, apparently attending a birthday party as well. Three of them were school students.

However, no drugs were found and they all tested negative for drugs, according to NST.

“We issued a compound to the nine under Rules 7 (1) of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures within the Infected Local Areas) Regulations 2020 (Regulation),” Asst Comm Soffian Santong said.

In shocking news to emerge yesterday, PDRM is now calling upon the public to report on sightings of four foreign workers who had escaped from their living quarters after receiving Covid-19 screenings.

This comes after the roadworks company that they had been employed with in Lukut, Port Dickson, screened 26 of their workers for Covid-19 in Sepang, according to The Star.

Sepang OCPD Asst Comm Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof had said that the roadworks company received a phone call from medical authorities that one of the workers screened had tested positive, and was promptly sent to Sungai Buloh Hospital to receive treatment.

But as this was happening, the company discovered that four of their other workers had escaped from their living quarters, reports Oriental Daily.  The company had also been instructed to bring their remaining workers for a second screening on Tuesday (19th May 2020), where two of their Bangladeshi workers tested positive.

The police are now appealing for the public to contact them with any information or the whereabouts of these four individuals, who are aged between 22 and 27 years old.

We hope that these four workers will be able to be found soon, for both their own safety and that of everyone else.

Some Malaysians still choose to violate the NO interstate travel rule despite strict warnings from PDRM. Even after four whole days were given to travel, some of them travelled after those days and faced the consequences.

The same case today happened where 308 drivers were caught trying to sneak in Penang for Hari Raya and other unimportant reasons but were asked to turn back.

According to The Star, Penang Police Chief Commissioner Datuk Sahabudin Abd Manan said that nine compound notices were also issued for those who violated the Conditional Movement Control Order. He simply said to those who wish to travel to Penang without a reason to not waste their time and money.

“We have set up 18 roadblocks at various entry points along the state border to intensify security into Penang which is now declared a Covid-19 green zone.”

If you think you’ve escaped without detection and managed to balik kampung, don’t be too happy as PDRM has also informed that they will be tracking down those who made unauthorised interstate trips to celebrate Hari Raya with their families.

This is not the time to be selfish, we need to plant it into our heads that the Covid-19 danger is NOT OVER! For our own safety, let’s just stay home and stay safe

Now that businesses are allowed to operate again, even roadside stalls are opening and many Malaysians are taking advantage of it.

Even though strict standard operating procedures (SOP) have been given by the government, these people don’t seem to care about social distancing as they are seen crowding around the roadside stalls while buying food and blocking the road with their cars.

A video posted on Facebook shows a police officer telling these people off through the loud speaker on the car and telling them to move their cars away.

“Greetings and good afternoon to everyone. To all the customers buying kuih and food for breaking fast, please be reminded that I don’t want anyone parking and double parking in this area,” he said.

“This is a main road. One person can get down while the other can go look for a parking spot. Think of other people’s problems as well. Don’t only think about your own convenience.”

He then yells at the driver of a yellow car to move and tells the others still buying food to distance themselves.

Why are all these people out and about as if there is no movement restrictions at all? What happened to social distancing? What happened to the SOP?

Today (7th May) marks the first day of interstate travel for those who have had their applications approved by the police. If you’re planning on travelling back during this season, do take note that authorities are still monitoring your travels to ensure you’re crossing states within reason.

Those found travelling without approval from police will be turned back, said Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin, the state police chief, adding that nine roadblocks were stationed in Selangor at midnight on 7th May to check on drivers and motorists involved in interstate travel.

“The roadblocks will be set up at strategic areas of Selangor bordering other states. For example, (the borders) between Selangor and Negeri Sembilan, Pahang and Perak,” said the chief in a statement recorded by BERNAMA and Astro Awani while he was patrolling one of the roadblocks at KM14 of Jalan Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh, Selayang last night.

In conjunction with the implemented CMCO, authorities have designated four days, between the period of 7th May and 10th May, for citizens that need to travel across states for valid purposes.

Now that the Covid-19 Movement Control Order (MCO) has been eased, people are rushing out to their favourite makan places to get their hands on meals they’ve no had in a while and have been craving.

For people staying in Bangsar, that would be the Nasi Briyani Ayam Madu from famous Bangsar mamak, Mahbub.

Many apparently crowded the restaurant in order to get a meal, which caused police officers to be called in to ensure that customers maintained the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) ethics, which includes social distancing, as showcased by Twitter profile, Pedoqpop.

Netizens took to Pedoqpop’s thread to express their frustration at the fact that the customers showcased no regard for social distancing and crowded the food counter in throngs.

This comment goes, “What to do, Malaysians are concrete heads, stubborn.”

This comment says, “Too bad. Don’t tell me police officers have to guard every restaurant or mamak. It’s like prefects guarding school children queuing up to buy food at the school canteen.”

The first picture showcased a large group of people standing literally in touching distance of each other as they waited for their food.

The second picture, on the other hand, shows police officers standing around outside the restaurant, probably after dispersing the crowd.

As for the customers, the government has urged us to be more disciplined when it comes to running errands and buying food.

The Malaysian National Security Council wrote, “Citizens need to practice self discipline of the highest form. Obey the MCO instructions, take care of your own safety and your families.”

This means that we should not put ourselves in a situation that could cause us to not only get infected but also infect others.

What do you think? Should the restaurant be fined for allowing their customers to crowd the premises?

PDRM has successfully detained three Rohingya men who were responsible for a series of break-ins in Kulai, Johor that have been recurring since last year.

Kulai Police Chief, Tok Beng Yeow, said that the three suspects were caught conducting separate raids in a village lodge and two houses within the district last night from 8pm on Monday night t0 3am on Tuesday, following reports from Sinar Harian.

“During the raid, the police seized two cars, break-in equipment, different currencies of cash, bank books, passports, jewelry and two laptops, all worth more than RM80,000,” he said at a press conference in the District Police Headquarters, today (29th April).

This incident unfortunately caused more backlash towards the Rohingya community.

It was mentioned that this wasn’t the first of their reported criminal activity. According to the Police chief, the men were also “involved in several break-in cases and the most recent case in Indahpura which took place on 26th April involving a 40-year-old male victim.”

According to the suspects, their modus operandi was to break into the house through the front door and windows with a screwdriver before sneaking in. The group of men aged between 20 to 32-year-olds were arrested with two young girls, aged 8 and 9 respectively.

Despite the detainment of these three suspects, authorities are still on the lookout for the group’s main masterminds, 32-year-old Abdullah and 20-year-old Norjan, who have yet to be found.

“Further investigations revealed that the group committed a total of 10 home burglaries in Indahpura, Bandar Putera, Saleng and Senai since November last year,” added the police chief.

While some of the suspects had a United Nations Commissioner for Refugee (UNHCR) card with them, others didn’t have any form of documentation to verify their identities, “Police are still investigating all the unemployed suspects for how long they’ve lived in the country.”

Stay safe guys!

PDRM will start issue compound notices to those who violate the movement control order starting today (8 April), says Comm Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.

According to The Star, he said they received the forms and documentation for the compounds last week and will start issuing them today. Violators will have to pay a RM1,000 fine.

Comm Acryl added that the compound would not be issued at the roadblocks but instead, violators will be brought to the nearest police station or district police headquarters where the compound will be issue

“If the violators fail to pay the compound amount, they will be tried in court. They are given two weeks to settle the amount at any Health Ministry office,” he added.

He then reminds everyone not to take this lightly as violators will have to pay a fixed amount of RM1,000. No room for discounts will be allowed once the compound has been issued. This is in accordance with the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988.
