Rats and Roaches

Not-so-royal alliance. Raja Petra Kamarudin, who broke the Abdullah-Jeanne story late last year, has come up with the second part of a chilling article alleging an unholy alliance between a Chinese syndicate and the Royal Malaysian Police.
The Part 2 dissects an eight-page Statutory Declaration made by one Assistant Superintendent by the name of Hong Kin Hock from the Operations Division of the Commercial Crimes Division in Bukit Aman.

Read The roaches are hurrying and the rats are scurrying.
Part 1 appeared on June 3: Malaysia's organised crime syndicate: all roads lead to Putrajaya.

    Bloggers should write in to the MPI and asked them to include bloggers for press awards.

    RPK will surely walk away with the best investigative award. Mainstream media no where near

    Allegation and method thereof are SOP which practically all high ranking police officers have to live with. Certainly the present IGP isn't the first to be alleged with having and benefiting from underworld links. Perhaps readers will be less misled by asking a simple question -- what's the under current? Cabals within the force jockeying for position? The bloke should be retiring soon. Think.

    read it and its scary to know organised crimes have infiltrated deep into the networks of the police. reminds me of the al capone days.

  4. I think the contention of organised crime along the Triad line in Malaysia is a misperception. Otherwise the May 13 eruption would not have ebbed as quickly as it started.

    The so-called "Tai Kos" are basically businessmen and the "members" are salaried workers out to make a living.

    If we were to trace the background of such "Tai Ko" he would started out as a school dropout under the new education policy and forced to start a small business. As times go by he would have endeared himself to the police guys that matters and then invariably went into the industries of gambling, prostitution and drugs, where no license would be given but yet lucrative and of high demand. A common trait among them is that they are sociable, make the right friends easily and of course talk like "BK Tan".

    The Tai Kos' fortunes fluctuate as much as the fortune of selected Malays they know in the boxoffice musical chair game.

    I would want to say more but let this be the starter.
