No problem with Chinese workers at TRX site, say residents
KUALA LUMPUR: Contrary to a Malay daily’s report recently accusing migrant workers from China of unruly behaviour, residents and business operators near the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) development in Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle say they face no such issues.
Many who spoke to FMT said while the workers could be “noisy”, they did not create trouble for locals, although some could be seen indulging in gambling or liquor-drinking after their working hours.
“Even when they are buying their groceries, you can hear them from afar,” said a goldsmith at Plaza Pudu, who said other than that, the workers were not disruptive.
This followed a Harian Metro report on Monday that said some Chinese migrant workers urinated on the streets, got drunk and were noisy.
The report added that the Chinese workers, who were believed to be working at several construction sites in the city, had brought along their culture of gambling, disturbing the public and damaging public property.
Another local who did not wish to be named told FMT he had heard of Chinese workers gambling after work. He added however that they did not disturb the locals or the businesses in the area.
“Maybe they gamble to pass time after work,” he said.
A worker at a roadside stall meanwhile said the Chinese labourers sometimes tried out Indian food.
“They will come at night to eat.”
He, too, said the Chinese workers were often noisy.
“But they eat, pay and go. There are no problems with them,” he added.
A security guard told FMT that he sometimes saw the labourers walking past his station.
When they passed by him, he said, they would put up their hands to acknowledge him. “No problems,” he added.
Bukit Bintang MP Fong Kui Lun said he had not received any complaints from locals in the area.
“Maybe they (Chinese workers) gamble after work. But I have not received any complaints from the hawkers and residents,” he said when contacted.

#KualaLumpur Polis tidak menolak kemungkinan salah faham berikutan masalah komunikasi menjadi punca insiden anggota polis diserang sekumpulan individu warga China di Jalan Abraham Off Jalan Imbi

POLIS tidak menolak kemungkinan salah faham berikutan masalah komunikasi menjadi punca insiden anggota polis diserang sekumpulan individu warga China di Jalan Abraham Off Jalan Imbi, Kuala Lumpur, Jumaat lalu.
Ketua Polis Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Mazlan Lazim berkata, pihaknya masih mengenal pasti punca sebenar empat anggota polis yang bertugas diserang individu terbabit ketika sedang menjalankan pemeriksaan di lokasi berkenaan.
“Berdasarkan siasatan awal, anggota polis berkenaan dimaklumkan mengenai kegiatan beberapa individu yang bermain judi di dalam rumah di lokasi terbabit sebelum mereka melakukan pemeriksaan.
“Bagaimanapun, berlaku perselisihan faham yang mungkin disebabkan masalah komunikasi berikutan kekangan bahasa berlainan menyebabkan beberapa individu menyerang anggota polis bertugas hingga mereka terpaksa melepaskan tembakan di udara sebagai tanda amaran,” katanya pada sidang media selepas Majlis Perhimpunan Bulanan di Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen (IPK) Kuala Lumpur, hari ini.
Deport China citizens who allegedly attacked cop – patriots group
Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan has urged for the group of China citizens suspected of attacking a police officer last weekend to be deported from the country immediately.
“We look seriously on the attack on a police officer by China citizens, and urge those involved to take harsh action against the aggressors by deporting them from this country.
“This should be done immediately. These actions by the China citizens have crossed the line and is damaging the dignity of our country,” Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan president Brig-Gen (R) Mohd Arshad Raji said in a statement today.
Mohd Arshad believes this incident could potentially cause tensions in the country, pointing out that there are not only workers from China here, but also from Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Myanmar and Nepal.
“If the government does not show a firm hand in handling this incident involving China citizens, the same thing could happen with the workers from other countries in Malaysia as well,” he said.
At the same time, Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan praised the police officer for being “brave” as he put his life on the line when he faced the group who attacked him.
“We would like to invite the public to look at the police in a positive light.
