New video of MBPJ dog catchers involved in exchange with the public emerges [NSTTV]

KUALA LUMPUR: A new video of a Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) enforcement officers involved in an exchange with members of the public during a stray dogs roundup has started making the rounds on social media.

In the latest video, an enforcement officer can be seen taunting a man who was filming the dog catching operation.

"It is the MBPJ's job to catch all these dogs. It's none of your business.

"Are those your dogs? If it is yours you tell us so," the enforcement officer can be heard saying while climbing over a railing and getting very close to the man.

Another enforcement officer was also heard telling the man to take a picture of him.

The video titled "Same MBPJ guy - this was 10th Feb." shared on a Facebook users account had been viewed 80,000 times

Last month, MBPJ incurred netizens' wrath after several videos and pictures of an elderly man allegedly being roughed up by its enforcement officers during a stray dog round-up operation started making the rounds.

The man, 69 year-old Patrick Khoo Kian Wui, was involved in the tussle but has since ended up being charged with obstructing a public servant from discharging his duty.

Khoo has since pleaded not guilty to the offence.

MBPJ in a statement today said its personnel who struck Khoo during the incident was not charged as the incident was unintentional.

The council said a dog-catching tool had accidentally struck the complainant during a struggle.

It added that an internal investigation into the matter had resulted in recommendations by the investigation committee to improve procedures on dog-catching operations.

The New Straits Times has reached out to the council for its response to the latest video but has yet to receive a reply.
