Criminals Do Read Newspaper

A very well-planned job - The Star, 21st Nov 2006
  • Two container trailers driven by men in Rela uniform did not raise any suspicion when they arrived at the MASKargo Complex in Batu Maung here at 2.15am yesterday.
  • The “Rela personnel” told the two Customs officers manning the checkpoint that they were there to flush out illegal workers and instructed them not to alert the people inside the complex.
  • In just an hour, they piled 585 cartons and 18 pallets of microchips and motherboards manufactured by a multi-national company in Bayan Lepas into the containers.
  • The loot estimated to be worth US$12.7mil (RM46.99mil) was said to be the country’s biggest ever heist. And arguably the most audacious, too.
  • Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who was in Putrajaya, was livid when informed of the robbery. The Prime Minister was very angry over the lack of security.

Criminals are getting smarter and I bet they do read newspaper. Is anyone going to revise the provision that Rela members are allowed to force enter a business premises without a search warrant? The povision was the hot talk of the town few weeks back, which put the police force to shame, with their "I am the law" claim. Not even police can conduct a search without a warrant but these Rela men do.

Don't be angry, our dear PM because we only have ourselves to blame. How it all started, read the first line of the news and you might see the light.

That's a good diagnosis. Rela is the law and the robbers became rela too.

Everyone is riding on the Rela current, and criminals are also doing the IN thing for the year.
