3 Bangladeshi with fake work permits arrested

SHAH ALAM: The police arrested three Bangladeshi men allegedly for issuing and selling fake work permits to fellow Bangladeshis since last October.

Shah Alam police chief, Assistant Commissioner Mohammad Iqbal Ibrahim said during a raid around 7.30pm on Tuesday in Kampung Baru Hicom, Section 26, resulted in the capture of the first two suspects, who were about 20 and 30-years old.

The two suspects, according to him, were working near the Hicom-Glenmarie industrial area and they had been residing in Malaysia for three years.

It is also suspected that they had been involved in forging and reselling fake permits since October.

"The suspect carries out activities of distributing and selling fake permits to foreign nationals, by offering a cheaper price for each permit at RM200.

"Most of them are bought by Bangladeshis," he said in a statement today.

Iqbal said police managed to seize a laptop computer, a printing machine, three passports, 10 temporary work visit passes and four mobile phones.

He said, following the arrest of the two suspects involved, another Bangladeshi suspect  in his 30s surrendered at the Shah Alam police headquarters last night and is believed to be involved in the case.

He said the first two suspects were remanded until Dec 3 while the third suspect would be brought to court today for a remand application.

The case will be investigated under Section 420 of the Penal Code for cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property.
