‘Untouchable’ crime kingpin arrested in Johor Baru

August 5, 07

And while the common criminals who commit spontaneous robberies and rapes are being deterred by the increased police presence in Johor Bahru, it seems the real targets are the organized criminals.

Fine by me… While I am more concerned about the random criminal attacks, serious crime is serious crime. As long as the police devote lots of manpower to protecting ordinary citizens (instead of issuing traffic summonses), I’m all in support of them.

Good job JB police! You have turned yourselves around!

‘Untouchable’ crime kingpin arrested in Johor Baru

JOHOR BARU: A powerful crime lord, involved in organised underworld activities including vice and gaming, was detained here several days ago. 

The 55-year-old suspect, previously regarded as an “untouchable,” was arrested by a special team of officers from Bukit Aman under the Anti-Money Laundering Act.  

The suspect, who is also widely mentioned in a blog, has since been taken to an undisclosed location in the country to assist in investigations. 

It is learnt that the crime lord, described as the head of one of the most powerful syndicates in the country, was arrested under a directive from the Internal Security Ministry. 

He was picked up by the team from the commercial crime unit at an undisclosed location here. 

Federal commercial crimes director Comm Datuk Ramli Yusuf confirmed the arrest of an underworld figure for money laundering under the Restricted Residence Act. 

He declined to elaborate further. 

It is learnt that the suspect is being detained under a 60-day detention order, which can be extended up to two to three years through a directive from the Internal Security Minister. 

It is learnt that several police reports have also been lodged by family members alleging the arrest was unlawful. 

This is the second major arrest in the state involving crime syndicates. Last month seven suspected Malaysian gang leaders with links to the Singapore underworld, allegedly involved in vice and gaming activities here and across the Causeway, were arrested. 

All of them were arrested with the assistance of the Singapore police. 

However, one of the seven has since been released. 

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan recently said that police had identified seven gang leaders who had been terrorising the state with the help of influential people. 

He said police were gathering intelligence to either take action against these leaders under preventive laws or to charge them in court.  

12-year-old And Five Teens Use Lorry to Gang Rape

August 5, 07

The Johor sub-humans are at it again. Even with the increased police presence, they have the gall to knock down motorcyclists with their lorry, then abduct the woman to be raped.

But gratitude to the police who were quick to solve this disgusting crime.

I will repeat my call to HAVE ALL RAPISTS PHYSICALLY CASTRATED.

No, scratch that… Have them castrated, then bundle them off to hardcore prison where they can experience the same gentle treatment they gave their victims.

12-year-old and five teens held over abduction and rape

JOHOR BARU: A 12-year-old school dropout and five teenagers were detained in connection with the abduction and rape of a factory worker. 

He and the others, aged 16 to 19, were picked up in a series of raids soon after police rescued the woman. 

In the Friday night incident, the 30-year-old victim and her 24 year-old-friend were riding a scooter in Taman Nusa Damai, Pasir Gudang. 

A lorry, used to transport gas cylinders, overtook them and forced the scooter off the road. Both women fell. 

The assailants caught the victim and bundled her into the lorry before driving off, leaving her friend behind. 

The victim was taken to a secluded area in Pasir Gudang where she was gang-raped. The woman’s friend alerted the Sri Alam police.  

A police task force headed by Sri Alam CID chief Deputy Supt Mohd Nor Rasid combed the nearby housing estates and located the lorry in Taman Nusa Damai. 

Police rescued the victim eight hours after her abduction as the assailants fled. 

While she was being sent to the hospital, police continued their manhunt and picked up the suspects in a series of raids around Kota Masai. 

Acting Johor police chief Senior Asst Comm I Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said the case was solved within eight hours, thanks to fast action by the police and the close cooperation with the public. 

It is learnt that police did not rule out the possibility that the suspects were high on drugs or alcohol.
