AmBank killing pique netizens
The AmBank robbery-cum-killing of its officer by an armed security guard raises questions on the standard operating procedures applied in approving ‘carry and use’ license for guns in M’sia.
KUALA LUMPUR: The shooting and robbery incident in AmBank that cost the life of its officer has angered many netizens across the board..
A far less forgiving comment nailed the issue of favouritism, cronyism, ignorance coupled with corruption, in addition to negligence and incompetence.
Christopher Krishnan said “what we see is the result of years of favouritism, cronyism, and close one eye or even both coupled with corruption…..”
“This is not peculiar to security company vetting, but is rampant across every aspect of country’s administration which is the cause of the rot in anything and everything in the country….”
Indeed the company that hired the guard is also being brought to task by some netizens for its failure in the entire process of securing personnel in the security business.
The incident begs an answer to the question: what are the standard operating procedures applied by the government in vetting and subsequently issuing a license to an individual or security firm to carry guns in public?

“Expose the security firm! So that the public and business communities can avoid hiring their services (sic),” said Mohd Nashraf.
“The security company should be held liable. Malaysia’s security guards are one of the lowest paid. If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys,” said Foo Ming Swan, one of the netizens who voiced their shock and anger in The Star Online’s Facebook page over the murder-cum-robbery.
User Adam Zulqarnain echoed Nik Hasmizie’s sentiments, saying that thorough background checks be made before hiring guards.
“Anyone with a suspicious background, for example, those with a history of criminal involvement should be blacklisted throughout the country to avoid any firms or businesses from hiring them (sic),” he said.

KUALA LUMPUR: Recruiting security guards to work in the banking sector is mostly carried out by a Kuala Lumpur-based firm which provides security services, said AmBank Group senior general manager (group corporate, communications and marketing) Syed Anuar Syed Ali.
He said most banks in the Klang Valley used the services from this particular firm whenever they needed security guards.

THE KILLER-ROBBER SECURITY GUARD USED A FAKE IC TO GET HIS JOB!
How many security guards using fake ICs are employed by that firm? Or by all security firms in the country?
PAS information chief Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said that he was perplexed by the security firm’s lax attitude in checking the background of its employees.
“If this man could get a job with the firm using a fake IC, I wonder how many more guards working for the company have fake ICs as well?” he asked, adding that there was nothing to stop security firms from resorting to illegal ways after the ministry completes its audit.
“If this audit was consistently done, the ministry would have been able to detect security guards with fake identifications much earlier.”

Reveal firm behind rogue Ambank guard, PAS’s Tuan Ibrahim tells Home Ministry
BY ELIZABETH ZACHARIAH
October 25, 2013
The home ministry has been urged to reveal the name of the security firm whose rogue guard shot dead a bank officer during a robbery in Subang Jaya on Wednesday.
PAS information chief Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man (pic) today said that there were too many questions and doubts surrounding the company which had its licence revoked following the incident.
“What is the ministry’s reason to keep the name of the firm a secret? It is obvious that it has become a threat to the safety of the people because of their recklessness,” he said.
Yesterday, deputy secretary-general Datuk Alwi Ibrahim announced that the security firm’s operating licence had been revoked. However, he refused to give details of the company.
“They had failed to comply with several conditions.
“The security firm failed to carry out proper vetting on the background of the suspect. He should have been vetted by the ministry. In this case, not only was the suspect not vetted by the security firm or the ministry, but he was allowed to carry and use a firearm.
“Also, there are reports that the suspect used a fake identity card when he applied for the job,” he said.

Security firm’s licence revoked following deadly bank robbery
By LEE SHI-IAN
October 24, 2013
The security firm, whose rogue guard shot dead a bank operations officer in a robbery in Subang Jaya yesterday, has had its license revoked.
“They had failed to comply with several conditions,” said Home Ministry deputy secretary-general Datuk Alwi Ibrahim in announcing the decision today.
The most obvious failure by the security firm was that they had failed to vet the guard before they hired him and allowed him to carry a firearm.
“The security firm failed to carry out proper vetting on the background of the suspect. He should have been vetted by the ministry,” Alwi said.
“In this case, not only was the suspect not vetted by the security firm nor the ministry, but he was allowed to carry and use a firearm.
“Also, there are reports that the suspect used a fake identity card when he applied for the job.”
What irked Alwi even more was that the security firm only decided to submit details of the rogue guard, today, for vetting by the ministry.

Both had their backs to the camera and were facing a safe.

He then walked over Noazita’s stationary body and proceeded to collect the money from the safe into a bag.
