GE14: Police Receive 1,069 Reports, Arrest 17 Nationwide



SANDAKAN, May 7 – The police received 1,069 reports and made 17 arrests nationwide in connection with the general election campaign between April 28 and last Saturday, said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.

He said 131 of the reports were received in Sabah and one person was arrested in Bongawan for impersonating a civil servant. No serious incidents occurred during the period and the security situation was under control, he said.

“Our monitoring will continue through polling on Saturday,” he said to reporters after a visit to the Karamunting MPS Flats here today. Also present were Bukit Aman Narcotics CID director Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh and Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Ramli Din.

Mohamad Fuzi said the police were monitoring 1,131 potential trouble-makers nationwide and that 150 of them were in Sabah. “We have met some of these individuals and warned them not to do anything unlawful. We are monitoring the rest,” he said.

He said the police were ready to face any situation that could undermine security during the remaining days up to and during polling.  Mohamad Fuzi urged the leaders and members of political parties and their supporters to help ensure a smooth general election. He said they should refrain from getting emotional and doing anything that could undermine security. — Bernama
