Media Statement by Johor DAP Publicity Secretary and Senai State Assembywoman Wong Shu Qi on 13th June 2016 (Monday):
At least three break-ins within 24 hours in Kulai area shows the seriousness of crime.
Merely 12 hours after my office was broken into, another unit of in the same row as my office fell victim to similar crime. At the same time, a break-in was also reported in Kelapa Sawit.
There were at least three break-ins within 24 hours in the Kulai district. In addition, when I was at the police station to lodge report about my office, I met a woman who had just became victim of snatch theft the same day in Kulai as well.
All these crimes happened in Kulai within 12 to 24 hours. More shockingly, all happened in broad daylight. It is obvious that these criminals are issuing a challenge to the Kulai police force and all Kulai residents.
To ensure the safety of our lives and property, I urge all Kulai residents to stay vigilant and to cooperate with the police to fight crime.
Criminals will take advantage of the coming festive season to commit more crimes in this period. Moreover, economic downturn is making the situation worse. The rampant crimes are indicator of how bad the economy is today. Job creation and decent-paid jobs are the two most important issues that both federal and state government must try to look into.
On the other hand, we need to ensure law-breakers are arrested and dealt with by the law.
Wong Shu Qi
