KUCHING: Electricity supply to 55 illegal gambling premises has been disconnected as an approach to stop them from operating.

Sarawak Commissioner of Police Datuk Azman Yusof said it is within the law that the police gave orders to Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB) to disconnect the electricity supply to these premises.

“Despite the actions (raids) of the police on these premises, the operators were still stubborn by using the same premises to conduct their illegal activities,” Azman told a press conference after the closing of the General Operations Force (PGA) basic training course at Pulapol Kuching yesterday.

He added that once electricity to these premises is disconnected, the operators would not be able to power-up their equipment such as computers as well as other electrical appliances in the premises.

“I would also like to express my gratitude to SEB for working together with the police to combat these illegal gambling activities in the state,” he added.

Gunned down by lone assassin

zrrThe bodies of Lau (left) and Loh at the coffee shop following the shooting.

SIBU: A local businessman and his young associate were gunned down in broad daylight at a coffee shop here yesterday by a lone assassin in what appears to be a contract killing.

The victims have been identified as Lau Ngik Yin, 47, and Loh Lik Siong, 21.

The incident happened at 12.15pm at Jalan Pahlawan when Lau, Loh and a female Chinese national were having lunch at the café – the same premises where Lau’s wife was shot dead in 2012 in one of two previous attempts on the businessman’s life.

A man wearing a red, long-sleeved jacket and a motorcycle helmet is said to have casually approached their table before firing four shots – twice at each victim – before fleeing the scene on a motorcycle parked nearby.

State police commissioner Datuk Amer Awal, who issued a statement following the incident, said Lau and Loh were pronounced dead at the scene.
.
Lau, widely known as Ah Kang, was previously the target of two shooting incidents in 2012 and 2014.

Although Lau survived both attempts on his life, his wife, Law Leh Kuong, died in the November 2012 incident after she was hit in the back of her head by stray pellets fired from a shotgun.

Law was the elder sister of Law Leh Hing, a businessman who was gunned down in a shooting at Brooke Drive here on Jan 11, 2012.

BINTULU: Police shot dead four men believed to be responsible for a spate of three armed robbery cases in the division hear early today.
Three teams from the Sarawak Criminal Investigation Division were conducting crime prevention rounds in the city when they spotted the suspects, in their 30s and 40s, acting suspiciously inside a car at Jalan Tun Hussein Onn here at about 1am.

Police shoot man in buttock to subdue him

 

KUCHING: A 43-year-old man, who was believed to be under the influence of drugs, was shot by police amidst a frenzied situation at his residence at Kpg Keluru, Bekenu near Miri on Friday.Head of state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) SAC Dev Kumar said the incident happened at about 11pm when the man’s 64-year-old mother noticed her son’s strange behaviour at their home.

“He appeared to be hallucinating and talking to himself while holding a knife. Fearing for their safety, the family members ran out of the house and the Bekenu police were notified.

“The OCS (officer in-charge of police station) Bekenu tried to calm the man down and coax him into surrendering but the man refused. Instead, he threatened to burn down the house and kill himself. The tense situation went unresolved until the following day,” he said in a press statement yesterday.

“The police team broke in through the front door. The man then ran into a bedroom and locked himself inside. The village chief was called to coax the man out and this attempt too failed.”

Sensing that the man was turning more aggressive and the situation was going out of control, he said a tear gas canister was thrown into the room to flush the man out.

The man was then seen rushing out of the room with both hands holding a knife and a machete, trying to attack the police team, he added.

One of the police officers then shot the man on his right buttock, he said.

Despite being shot, Dev said the man still put up a struggle while being apprehended.

As a result, one of the policemen sustained injuries to his right hand from the machete held by the man, he said.

In the incident which occurred around 9.15pm on Friday, Hii Nek Kah, 68, was set upon by four men and a woman hired as daily-paid labourers to renovate his house.

Hii and a male friend he had  invited to stay over were in separate rooms when the house’s alarm system went off.

Hii opened the kitchen door to find out what had triggered the alarm but was pounced on by the workers who attacked him with a machete and wooden club when he put up a fight.

His friend peered out from his bedroom to witness the incident, shutting the door quickly before pushing a large table against it to prevent the workers going after him.

He then forced open a grilled window and escaped from the house while calling Hii’s son to inform him what had happened.

Police personnel rushed to the scene after being notified by the son, and arrived to find Hii lying on the living room floor with head injuries. He was already dead.

The suspects were nowhere to be seen as they had fled in a Toyota Prado belonging to Hii’s son along with several thousand ringgit the deceased had withdrawn earlier in the day.

However, their freedom proved to be short-lived when the vehicle was stopped at Main Bazaar by a team led by the Central Police Station officer-in-charge ASP Ricky Poh around 11pm.

Shoot us, suspects challenge police during inspection

KOTA KINABALU: Two suspected criminals challenged the police to shoot them after they were stopped for inspection in Luyang.

Policemen on patrol had noticed a car with the men inside behaving suspiciously at the Tun Fuad Stephens Park early Thursday.

City police chief Asst Comm M Chandran said the men tried to hide their faces when confronted and even shouted tembaklah kalau berani (shoot is you dare).

As the suspects tried to drive away, they knocked into several cars and the policemen’s motorcycle.

“Police had no choice but to fire four shots at the tyres of the car to try and stop the suspects from escaping. But they managed to flee,” ACP Chandran said.

Police are on the hunt for the duo, one of whom was identified as Samri Samsul, 28, an ex-convict and a wanted criminal for car break-in cases around Luyang.

“Samri is out on bail pending trials of a break-in and narcotics cases,” ACP Chandran said.

Honda air bag victim was in final week of pregnancy

The death of a heavily pregnant Malaysian woman in a car crash in Sibu, Sarawak, opens a new front in a widening US investigation into defective air bags that has triggered one of the biggest safety recalls in automotive history.

Law Suk Leh, 43, was driving her 11-year-old Honda City car in twilight on Sunday, July 27 when it collided with another vehicle making a turn across her lane at an intersection in a quiet industrial zone on the outskirts of Sibu, a town in the Malaysian-ruled northwest of Borneo.

According to local police, Law, who was wearing a seat belt, was hit in the neck by a single fragment of metal, nearly 2.5 centimetres in diameter, from the air bag that tore apart in the collision. The post mortem report showed she died from a “severe puncture wound on the neck”.

Law and her 41-year-old Filipino husband were visiting family in Sibu ahead of the Hari Raya public holidays. They had driven down from the nearby sultanate of Brunei where they lived and worked.

The 21-year-old driver of the other vehicle involved in the collision told Reuters he was taking family and friends to a local night market. He said an ambulance was called after the crash, but a pick-up truck driver offered to drive Law to the hospital.

“Me and the woman’s husband carried her to the back of the pick-up. She had a hole in her throat and was bleeding badly. Her husband had a cloth covering her throat, trying to control the bleeding,” he said.

“She was still alive, but couldn’t speak.”

Law was later transferred to an ambulance, but was pronounced dead en route to hospital, where a baby daughter was delivered alive, but died two days later, police said. Law’s nephew, Law Ee Liang, said his aunt had just a week left of her pregnancy. Other members of Law’s family declined to discuss the incident. Law also had a seven-year-old son, who possibly lives with his grandparents in Sibu, police said.

The incident occurred around 11.30am, when two men on a motorcycle apparently trailed the victim, a 53-year-old trader, back to his house and waited outside as he parked his car in the porch.

Sources said the pillion rider rushed into the car porch and confronted the trader as he got out of his vehicle by pointing a machete at him before snatching his gold necklace.

A struggle ensued between the pair, during which the trader shouted for help, prompting his family members and several neighbours to rush to his assistance and surround the culprit.

The accomplice, who was waiting on his motorcycle, sped off at that point but was very nearly foiled in his escape by Kota Sentosa assemblyman Chong Chieng Jen’s special assistants, Mordi Bimol and Abdul Aziz Isa, who were passing the area on their way to the State Legislative Assembly.

KUCHING: District police chief ACP Roslan Bek Ahmad strongly refuted an opposition assemblyman’s claim that the public have been left to fend for themselves against criminals.

Addressing the media in a press conference following a monthly parade at district police headquarters here yesterday, a visibly annoyed Roslan called the statement issued by Padungan state assemblyman Wong King Wei “inaccurate and grossly unfair”.

“The statement made by the ADUN was devoid of facts and proper research, and based merely on assumptions.

“In my opinion, it is a very misleading and dangerous statement to make as it can sow public hatred towards the police,” he said of Wong’s claim which appeared in a local Malay daily on Monday.

He added the Padungan rep had insinuated that the police had passed the buck in fighting crime to the public , when in fact his men were working day and night to ensure the safety of the people.

Roslan also called the statement ‘shallow’ for questioning police personnel of Kuching district on what they were doing to protect the people.

Report: Two shot dead in Penampang believed to be Sulu militants

KUALA LUMPUR: Two men shot dead by police in the vicinity of a shophouse in Penampang Baru, Sabah Thursday evening are suspected to be members of the Sulu Rebel Army and the “driving force” behind the recruitment of new members.

Initial police investigations revealed that the duo, in their 30s and 50s, had arrived from Kota Kinabalu and attempted an armed robbery in the area.

In the 5pm incident, a police team intercepted a vehicle in which the two men were travelling. At that juncture, the duo tried to resist and the police were forced to open fire, killing them on the spot.

According to a police source, police surveillance on the two men about a few weeks ago had revealed that they tried to recruit new members, spread the so-called Sulu Sultanate ideology in Sabah, as well as preached elements of violence.

“The suspects, who came from Kota Kinabalu, were also attempting to commit an armed robbery in the area.

“The police are now tracking down the remnants of this group and they are also believed to be getting active off the east coast of Sabah,” he said when contacted.

The 39-year-old victim told police that she had just gotten into her car after withdrawing the sum from a bank at Jalan Setia Raja around noon when two men on a motorcycle pulled up on the left side of her vehicle.

One of the men then smashed the front passenger window and reached inside to grab her handbag off the seat before the pair sped off on their machine.

The heist occurred in a flash that the stunned trader was unable to get a good look at either the make of the motorcycle or its licence plate number.

Armed ‘customer’ robs reflexology centre 

KUCHING: A reflexology centre at Jalan Mendu suffered several hundred ringgit in losses when it was held up by an armed robber who masqueraded as a customer.

The incident took place around 10.30pm on Thursday when the suspect, who wore a baseball cap, entered the premises and approached the male cashier to enquire about the availability of masseuses.

After being told about an available slot for him, the man handed over RM100 to the cashier, who promptly made a phone call to a masseuse on the upper floor to notify her to prepare a room for the customer.

During the phone call, however, the ‘customer’ caught the cashier off-guard when he suddenly whipped out a knife and rushed behind the counter and placed the blade against the latter’s neck.

The armed man then rifled through several drawers and grabbed RM600 before rushing outside and escaping with an accomplice waiting for him in a Proton Wira car.

Penampang and KK folk worry over floods and severe erosion:

KOTA KINABALU: Landslips remain a major concern in hilly areas across the state capital and the neighbouring Penampang district after almost a week of non-stop rain caused floods and roads to collapse.

Penampang district officer William Sampil said there have been dozens of reports of landslips and flood related damage from villages in the district.

“As of now, we have 12 incidents of landslips and severe erosion in several villages,” he said, adding that one house had collapsed while several others were on the verge of falling down.

Sampil said the district office had told occupants of the risky structures to leave to safer ground as measures and funds were being worked out to resolve the problems caused by Tuesday’s floods, which left most of the district under water.

The continuous rain, coupled with tail effects of two typhoons since Oct 4, also caused severe flooding in parts of Tuaran and Kota Belud while the main road between Kota Kinabalu and Tambunan has been closed for three months following cracks and a landslip.

Cut off: A section of the Penampang-Tambunan road that had fallen apart following a landslip.

Clerk says robbed, molested by four helmeted men trailing in Saga

KUCHING: A hospital clerk lodged a police report that she was allegedly robbed and molested by four helmeted men at the Tun Abdul Rahman Yakub bridge in Satok late Wednesday night.

The woman, in her 20s, was said to have left her workplace at the end of her shift around 11pm and stopped to refuel at a petrol station along Jalan Tun Ahmad Zaidi Adruce.

Leaving the station to head home in Batu Kawah, she claimed to have noticed a Proton Saga car trailing her, and decided to detour to Satok as a precaution to see if the vehicle was really following her.

The victim’s husband, who related her ordeal to reporters when met at the police station, said upon reaching the bridge, the Proton Saga overtook his wife and blocked her way before four men wearing full-face motorcycle helmets emerged and rushed to her car from both sides.

Based on what his wife told him, the men opened her car door and began manhandling her before removing about RM100 from her wallet.

Apparently not satisfied with the amount, one of the men began fondling her breast before pulling at her shirt and kissing her above her right breast, resulting in a “love bite” mark.

Lorong 2 residents send SOS to police

Tabuan Jaya, Kuching, Sarawak

The petition, which was signed by 228 residents, was sent to the police to express their earnest concern on the worsening level of street crimes and house break-ins in their neighbourhood.

LORONG 2 RESIDENTS SEND SOS TO POLICE

KUCHING: Residents of Lorong 2, Jalan Urat Mata in Tabuan Jaya, are worried of their safety and security over the past one year or so due to the rampant cases of housing break-ins, robbery and snatching in the area.

“There are over 300 houses at the lane and almost every house has a record of being broken into apart from robbery and snatching,” said a resident Jacky Phang, who has been living in the residential area for 20 years.

On Wednesday, a local Chinese daily reporter visited Lorong Urat Mata 2 to photograph the CCTV installed there following a couple of complaints on rising crime in the residential area but fell prey to snatchers. He was about to leave the site when two men on a motorcycle came from behind and snatched his camera. As a result of the struggle, the reporter fell and hurt his right arm.

It is also learnt that a woman sustained minor injuries after an unsuccessful snatch attempt not far from the lane about 2.20pm yesterday. According to a resident, the woman refused to let go of her handbag while crying out for help when the incident happened. A couple of residents came to her rescue, which sent the perpetrators fleeing the scene.

Phang was met by reporters when he, together with 14 other residents including their community leader, sent a petition letter for safety and security in the residential estate to the Tabuan Jaya Police Station which was received by Kuching District Police CID chief DSP Lim Bak Phai.

KOTA KINABALU, Oct 7 — The Eastern Sabah Security Command today denied issuing a tsunami warning for Sabah’s east coast amidst flooding in the state capital after three days of rain.

Its corporate communications chief, Newmond Tibin said Esscom, added the agency did not make a media statement on behalf of the Sabah branch of the Malaysian Meteorological Department purporting of a possible tsunami in the Eastern Sabah Security Zone during the next 36 hours.

“Any official media statement by ESSCom will only be issued through the Corporate Communications Unit or the portal, ESSCom Times,” he said, commenting on rumours in social media.

He urged the public, especially those living in the ten districts under the ESSZone to be calm and not to act on rumours.

Sabah Meteorological Department director Abdul Malek Tussin also denied the claim, saying his department has been receiving phone calls from worried residents.

“The rumours of the tsunami are just that, rumours,” he said, adding that all official warnings and news are updated on the Malaysian Meteorological Department website.

Suburban areas around the city have been severely hit by floods following a downpour since Saturday, with many stalled vehicles causing traffic to come to a standstill and people leaving their homes in its wake.

Villages in low-lying areas in Penampang, Inanam, Tuaran, Lok Kawi, Papar and Menggatal district were evacuated and residents sent to higher ground as water levels rose to shoulder high in some areas.

Rescue operations were underway to relocate villagers from Kampung Dabak, Kibabaig and Moyog in Penampang, where houses and shop lots were submerged in waters up to a metre deep.

Affected residents were taken to the Tun Fuad community hall in Donggongon while the floods subside.

Eight dogs, three cats found poisoned in break-in case

by Raymond Tan, reporters@theborneopost.com. Posted on September 25, 2014, Thursday

SIBU: Eight dogs and three cats were found poisoned in a break-in case at Sibu Lorry Drivers’ Association at Tapang Road, Sungai Antu.

Association chairman Ling Kee Chuong saw the stray dogs and cats the association had `adopted’ dead in the compound at daybreak yesterday.

Ling said, “This is the second time in three months that thieves resorted to poisoning our pets to steal from our premises.”

In the first incident, the number of dead pets was fewer, he said.

Instead of hiring a night watchman, he revealed that the association used more than 20 stray dogs to look after its premises.

“It seems the thieves are challenging us. This time, they used poisoned fish to feed our pets.”

Ling said the criminals had yanked off three door locks of their lorries and took the locks away.

“We believe they wanted to duplicate the keys to drive off the lorries.”

He explained that the association’ compound served as parking lot for members’ lorries.

by Anasathia Jenis, reporters@theborneopost.com. Posted on September 22, 2014, Monday

KUCHING: Three persons, including a woman, were hospitalised following injuries sustained when they were attacked at a night spot in the city here yesterday.

The victims were attacked while having drinks with others when a man from another group allegedly made advances on the 26-year-old female victim.

The other two victims were said to be attacked with a bottle and sustained injuries on the head when trying to protect the woman in the incident around 1am.

It was a double blow for the woman who was not only injured following the attack but also lost her belongings.

Her family and relatives who visited her at hospital yesterday lodged a report at the nearest police station after they were told that her bag containing cash, jewellery and documents, were missing.

In another incident, a 29-year-old man from Kampung Pangkalan in Bau, who was assaulted at a night club at King Centre, was rushed to hospital.

A police team rushed to the scene on receiving a distress call around 1am.

Meanwhile, a 21-year-old man from Sadong Jaya in Kota Samarahan suffered injuries on the head after being struck with a parang by his neighbour around midnight Saturday.

It was said that he was looking for his sister at a house not far away when he, without a word, struck the neighbour on his face.

The neighbour was said to have then used the weapon to fend off the assault.

2nd attempt on the life of prominent figure nicknamed Ah Kang.

Yet another shooting incident in Sibu

Posted on September 19, 2014, Friday

Wilson Kong, reporters@theborneopost.com

SIBU: A drive-by shooting occurred here yesterday afternoon which resulted in a prominent figure nicknamed Ah Kang among the two that got shot.

Sibu deputy police chief Supt Martin Koo said the case was being investigated under Section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder.

The incident happened around 1.15pm when Ah Kang, accompanied by three of his security guards, was having lunch with a friend at a coffee shop in Pahlawan Lane 7A-4.

Ah Kang and his friend, both 44 years old, were seated at a table while the three guards were at another table beside them when a car pulled up.

A shot was fired from a shotgun from inside the car which had three persons inside.

Koo said one of the guards, in retaliation, fired two shots which hit the trunk of the car that was speeding off.

He confirmed that the guard and his gun were licensed.

At the time of the incident not many customers were in the shop, he said.

The stray pellets from the shot fired from the car pierced through a curtain before it grazed Ah Kang and his friend, leaving nine holes on the curtain.

Ah Kang sustained light injury on his left fingers while his friend was slightly injured on the ear and cheek.

zs

On Nov 3 2012, Ah Kang’s wife Law Leh Kuong was shot dead at a coffee shop about 50 metres away from the coffee shop where the shooting occurred yesterday afternoon.

Law was apparently hit by stray pellets at the back of her head while having lunch with Ah Kang, his male cousin and spouse and a male friend.

Law was the elder sister of Law Leh Hing, a businessman who was gunned down in a shooting at Brooke Drive at 10.15am on Jan 11, 2012.

Ah Kang survives another shooting in attack at coffeeshop

SIBU: Two years ago, gunmen shot at self-employed Lau Ngik Yin while he was having lunch with his wife and a cousin at a cafe in Jalan Pahlawan, killing his spouse.

Yesterday, three men pulled up in a dark brown Proton Wira outside a coffeeshop where he was having lunch with a friend at Lorong Pahlawan 7A-4 and fired a shot at him.

The 44-year-old, widely known as Ah Kang, survived with minor injuries to the fingers on his right hand while his friend sustained wounds in his right cheek and ear after being hit by pellets.

Lau’s three bodyguards were seated at another table during the incident, deputy OCPD Supt Martin Koo said.

“The assailant fired a shot, believed to be from a shotgun. One of the bodyguards, who was armed with a CZ Ram pistol, saw the three men and fired two shots, which hit the car boot. But the suspects sped off,” he said.

Lau and his friend were rushed to a private medical centre for treatment. Police later found the gunmen’s car at Jalan Gambir, some 2km from the scene.

Shaken not stirred after customer orders wet noodles

by Raymond Tan, reporters@theborneopost.com. Posted on September 7, 2014, Sunday

SIBU: What’s the difference between stir-fried noodles and wet noodles? ‘A slap on the face’ in a coffee shop, that stirred an attack on Friday.

A customer had ordered a plate of ‘wet noodles’, more commonly known as Foochow noodles in other parts of Sarawak, for dinner at 6.30pm.

But when the hawker’s son served him ‘stir-fried noodles’ instead, the customer smacked him right in the face.

This led to an argument in the coffee shop.

The hawker, on seeing her son being beaten, approached the two to try defuse the situation, but she was instead pushed and beaten, ending up being slightly hurt too.

It was not so fortunate for her son, for serving the stirred-fried dish – he received four stitches in the hospital later for injuries in the attack.

Mother and son then proceeded to the police station to lodge a report on their shoddy treatment.

KUCHING: A director of a hypermarket chain was found dead in a drain in Kenyalang Park here early yesterday.

Police have identified the deceased as 56-year-old Alan Chong Tchong Kong who is based in Miri.

District police chief ACP Roslan Bek Ahmad, who confirmed the case, said the patrol team soon came across Chong’s body face down at the bottom of the two-metre deep drain.

“Initial investigation indicated the victim stopped by the roadside and walked several metres to the edge of the drain to ease himself when he fell inside.

“A check revealed no physical injuries except for a small section of his scalp which was torn. We believe this was a result of his head hitting the edge of the concrete drain when he fell in,” disclosed Roslan. There were no signs of a struggle taking place at the scene and all the victim’s personal belongings were found on him.

Roslan also said Chong was thought to have lost his balance while easing himself due to intoxication.
