Police to cooperate with Thai agencies to prevent entry of immigrants

KANGAR, The police will work with Thailand’s security agencies to address the landing of illegal immigrants at the Perlis coastal areas, says Perlis police chief Datuk Noor Mushar Mohamad.

He said such cases were likely to recur despite efforts implemented by the security forces including the recent arrest of illegal immigrants on April 8.

Thai authorities have detected about 30 illegal immigrants at the international waters, believed to be heading towards Malaysian waters, he told reporters after the Perlis police contingent blood donation drive here today.

Also present were his deputy ACP Md Zamri Mat Zanu.

Earlier this month, authorities detained 37 Rohingya refugees when they landed on a Perlis beach here.

Meanwhile, Noor Mushar said the police were also actively investigating the case involving the official car of Perlis Mufti Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin that was set on fire.

He said the suspect previously detained had to be released due to the strong alibi.

Police believed the act was a personal vendetta between the suspect and victim.
