Police recruitment ad featuring Singaporean actor, a hoax
PDRM slams Singapore website Mothership.sg for publishing article about fake recruitment ad featuring Elvin Ng, without first verifying details.
PETALING JAYA: An alleged Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) recruitment advertisement featuring a Singaporean actor in full police gear and which was shared on social media, is a hoax.
PDRM corporate communications head Asmawati Ahmad confirmed this with FMT, saying that the idea of using a Singaporean actor in any of its advertisements was absolutely nonsensical.
“Why do we need actors, when we have a strong 130,000 personnel in the police force,” she told FMT, adding that the police had always used its own personnel in such ads.
The “recruitment ad” said to have been uploaded on Facebook on Jan 16, had initially been mocked and shared by Singapore netizens before starting to gain some attention among Malaysians.
A Singaporean-based website, Mothership.sg, quoting “Jawatan Kosong Kerajaan” Facebook page, claimed that the local police force had used Singaporean actor Elvin Ng in its recruitment advertisement.
