Pay fines or face arrest'


KUALA LUMPUR: Only 30% of the 1.7 million motorists with unsettled summonses have paid up since Ops Cantas Khas Trafik – the nationwide crackdown started.

Commenting on the poor response, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said traffic offenders were still stubborn despite being given ample opportunities to do so.

"Those who have not settled their summonses seem to take our warnings for granted," he said at a press conference after unveiling the new Bukit Aman Crime Prevention department's bus at the Police Academy yesterday.

While there is no deadline to pay up under the Ops Cantas Khas Trafik, offenders are urged to settle their summonses as soon as possible.

He said 2,004 traffic offenders with warrants of arrest had been picked up since the start of the special operation on Nov 25.

"Most of the arrests were made in Johor (760); followed by Sabah (306), Selangor (160) and other states," he said, adding that the traffic summonses did not include the AES summonses.

Khalid added that he was still mull­ing over the proposal to suspend the licences of blacklisted motorists who were stub­born and did not want to settle their summon­ses.

On another matter, Khalid said police would be recording the statement of former senior police officer Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim in relation to his police report against lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah for filing an inaccurate affidavit.

He was responding to a news portal report that Mat Zain had lodged a four-page police report on Sunday against Shafee alleging that the latter had made an inaccurate affidavit over the Govern­ment's appeal against the verdict in Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's Sodomy II trial.

On the Crime Prevention Depart­ment bus, Khalid said the vehicle would be used to conduct a nationwide tour highlighting police successes as well as spreading awareness on crime prevention.

IGP: Action will be taken against DBKL protest organisers


KUALA LUMPUR: Action will be taken against organisers of a protest against property assessment revaluation that was held at Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.

The protest was attended by about 500 property owners, but no arrests were made.

"The protest or rally has been deemed illegal. If the organisers have broken the law, we will take necessary action. No one has been arrested so far," Khalid told a press conference at the Police Academy here yesterday.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad said police would investigate as they had not received a formal notice about the gathering by the organisers, which is a requirement under Section 9(1) of the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.

"We will investigate to identify the organisers," he said yesterday but declined to elaborate further.

The protesters, who gathered at DBKL's headquarters in Jalan Raja Laut here as early as 10am yesterday, were accompanied by prominent Pakatan Rakyat MPs such as Seputeh's Teresa Kok, Batu's Tian Chua, Bukit Bintang's Fong Kui Lun, Lembah Pantai's Nurul Izzah Anwar, Kepong's Tan Seng Giaw and Segambut's Lim Lip Eng.

During the protest, the MPs handed over 20,000 objection letters to DBKL from their constituents. The letters were received by Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib.

Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai earlier described the gathering at Dataran DBKL as a "meet-the-people" session, as Kuala Lumpur property owners would be able to submit their objections over the revaluation directly to their respective MPs.

Tan said the organisers did not notify the police about the gathering as they felt it was unnecessary.

Laughing man to undergo test


BUTTERWORTH: The Sessions Court here has ordered a man to undergo one month's evaluation at Hospital Bahagia Tanjung Rambutan when he laughed loudly after an attempted murder charge was read to him.

Judge Julie Lack Abdullah ordered general worker Abdul Manaf Jasin, 32, from Kampung Kepala Batas, Jalan Teluk Ipil, Nibong Tebal to be sent to the psychiatric hospital for evaluation.

He was charged with using a penknife in the attempted murder of L/Kpl Khairil Anuar Zahari, 31, at 12.30pm on Dec 7 at a house in Kampung Kepala Batas.

The offence under Section 307 of the Penal Code carries a maximum jail term of 20 years.

Abdul Manaf, who was not represented, merely laughed when the charge was read to him yesterday.

The court fixed Jan 15 for mention pending the victim's medical report and the accused's psychiatric report.

DPP Siti Aishah Ramlan represented the prosecution.

It was earlier reported that Abdul Manaf, who was arrested under anti-crime exercise Ops Cantas for alleged drug offences, had allegedly slit L/Kpl Khairil Anuar on the neck with the penknife when he was brought back to his house to collect his MyKad.

The police officer from the South Seberang Prai Narcotics Department had a wound that was about 1.5cm deep and 10cm long from the neck to his left cheek.

He had to be given 21 stitches for the injury.
