MALACCA: A Singaporean man was arrested for allegedly being involved in buying and selling stolen scrap metal worth millions of ringgit.
The 41-year-old man was arrested on Friday, March 2, 2007 when police from the Malacca police contingent tracked a hijacked lorry to the man’s scrap metal yard in Kampung Baru in Subang, Selangor, Malaysia.
Malacca police chief Senior Asst Comm. I Datuk Ayub Yaakob said in the 9.30am raid lead by Chief Insp A. Ari Krishnan, police seized 18 tonnes of aluminium bars worth RM160,000.
Sri Kandeh says: It seems that Singapore is the culprit of many things? So, what else? The question is why Singapore is so desperate as nation? And willing to take up anything under the sun! Lee Kuan Yew recently claimed that Singapore is among top rank of advance countries. That the rules of Singaporean creativity to survive! The variables and opportunities of conducting sabbotage are limitless. And later make a pretense and deception of typical vicious desperado of survivalist.
But who are their collabrators in Malaysia? Why and who issued the licence for scrap metal operators, which are mushroming? Why heard about continues stories of stolen cars , metals, road dividers, metal drain covers, gates, garden chairs, cabels. All about metal and iron are being stolen. It is a serius issue indeed. Never underestimate it.
Remember this, it take a very long time to build this nation, Malaysia. Putrajaya was only erectedt after 50 years of independence of the Malay Peninsular which were colonised by the foreigners for 440 years, after the collapsed of the Empire of Malacca in 1511 which was established by Parameswara in 1400 after he was driven out from Palembang, the capital of Malay Empire of Srivijaya that was established around 200 AD century and perished to the Majapahit and cease to exist in 1400.
