Why are illegal gambling outlets operating again?

Voon Shiak NiThe public are asking the authorities, including Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem, as to why illegal gambling (fishing) outlets are operating again after they were closed for a short period recently.

PKR Women national vice president Voon Shiak Ni said the questions were posed by crime watch groups to her, but unfortunately, she had no authority to answer them.

“It has been brought to my attention by the crime watch groups that the ‘fishing’ outlets are opened again especially at Kota Sentosa, MJC Batu Kawah New Township and from Mile 9 to Mile 11 Jalan Penrissen.

“However, I have no authority to answer these questions.

Some of them (crime watch group members) have even suggested that we forward the issue to our chief minister,” Voon said in a press statement received here yesterday.

Voon, who is also PKR Stampin branch vice chairperson, said the police had to explain the issue to the public.

It was also the duty of elected representatives in each affected area to follow up on the matter with the police.

Voon said the public was also wondering whether this vice had gotten out of control.

“We have 20 crime watch groups in Padawan and Kuching areas keeping a close watch on this issue, who are ready to work closely with the authorities.

” Unlike the mushrooming of illegal gambling outlets in Kuching, Voon said she was made to understand that there was no such illegal gambling activities in Lundu, which was something positive.

  2. Illegal 4D betting outlets are now openly accepting weekly bets in coffee shops. If the police are clueless about such illegal activities, they better quit the ear jobs

  5. It very simple. From the IGP to all the OCPD, they are all on the take because the current government under Umno Baru controlled BN are very corrupted and hence the institutions in the country are also corrupted.
