Multi-agency operation in nationwide crackdown

Malaysian authorities have launched a multi-agency effort at clamping down on illegal gambling dubbed Operasi Banteras Aktiviti Haram (Ops BAH).

Agencies involved in the operation include the FT Ministry, Police, National Safety Council, Kuala Lumpur City Hall, Immigration Department, National Anti Drug Agency, Federal Territories Islamic Department, Malaysia National Defence Department, National Water Services Commission, Selangor Water Supply Company, Energy Commission, Tenaga Nasional Bhd and Telekom Malaysia which comprise a total of 352 personnel.

According to Morning Star, 34 premises were raided in three locations in Kuala Lumpur this week resulting in the confiscation of computer components, WiFi routers and gambling machines. Many of those were repeat offenders, authorities said.

We want to send a message to the operators that we are serious about curbing the problem through this concerted effort, Federal Territories Ministry secretary-general Datuk Adnan Md Ikhsan said.
