Two cops among seven remanded over debt collector's death


GEORGE TOWN: Two policemen – a lance-corporal and a sergeant – and five other people have been remanded over the death of a debt collector.

Their remand is until Oct 19 for investigation under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.

The lance-corporal, in his early 30s, is based at the Kulim police station while the 55-year-old sergeant is from the Johor police contingent.

It is learnt that the other five – a 34-year-old woman said to be the policemen's friend and four men in their 30s and 40s – were friends of the deceased, Kang Seak Xiong, 38.

They were produced at the Bukit Mertajam Sessions Court yesterday where senior registrar Mohd Faiz Md Zain issued the remand order.

It was reported that the two policemen were arrested in connection with the shooting of the victim on Monday at about 2.30am at an entertainment outlet in Auto City in Juru.

Police confiscated the lance-corporal's pistol at a house in Kulim while a 9mm Luger bullet magazine and one round of ammunition were recovered from the scene.

At a Hari Raya Haji celebration at the Patani Road police station here, Penang police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said it was believed that a fight among the three men led to the shooting.

He added that he had checked with Kulim OCPD Supt Ghuzlan Salleh that the lance-corporal was permitted to carry his pistol while off duty.

SapuraKencana thankful to Venezuela for crew’s release


KUALA LUMPUR: SapuraKencana Petroleum Bhd has thanked the Venezuelan government for releasing the 36-member crew of SapuraKencana research vessel Teknik Perdana.

Its president and group chief executive officer Tan Sri Shahril Samsuddin said the crew members were picked up by Venezuela's navy and taken to Margarita Island for checks while working in disputed waters last Thursday.

"We wish to express our gratitude to the Venezuelan government for taking care of the safety and welfare of the crew, which comprises multiple nationalities.

"Our thanks also to the Malaysian Foreign Affairs Ministry for rendering timely assistance in the matter which has resulted in a positive outcome for our staff and company," he said in a statement yesterday.

Teknik Perdana was conducting a seabed survey for its customer Anadarko Petroleum USA, which was working for the Guyana government, when it was boarded by Venezuelan navy personnel and sailed to Margarita Island.

It has been reported that the area where the survey work was being conducted was being disputed by the governments of Guyana and Venezuela. — Bernama

Declare Umno wings’ polls illegal, DAP tells ROS


PETALING JAYA: The Registrar of Societies (ROS) should declare Umno's Youth, Wanita and Puteri wing elections last Saturday as illegitimate in view of allegations about missing ballot papers and rejection of recounting, said DAP assistant national publicity secretary Teo Nie Ching.

In a statement yesterday, she cited allegations about divisions getting more ballot papers than the legitimate number of delegates and that six Umno Youth branches in Seremban were qualified for voting despite being revoked six months ago.

"Voting for the women's wing in Baling and Puteri in Sabak Bernam was postponed due to missing ballot papers. Meanwhile, the official results were not released more than 24 hours after the voting was done on Saturday," she claimed.

She noted that DAP's fresh elections on Sept 29 had shown almost similar results from the initial polls whereby the same CEC members had been elected.

DAP's CEC elections in December last year was hit by what its leaders explained was a technical glitch in the tabulation of the results.

This led to several unhappay DAP members lodging complaints to the ROS, which held a probe and subsequently told the party to hold its polls again.
