Selangor wholesale market, another immigration operation

Serdang: The Selangor Wholesale Market here, which is a focus for foreigners especially Myanmar and Bangladesh to work and engage in business, continues to be raided by the Malaysian Immigration Department (JIM).

In the latest raid, the Selangor JIM authorities through Op Bersepadu raided the wholesale market early this morning.

In a raid at about 3 am, a group of illegal immigrants ‘risk their lives’ by crossing the main road to avoid being arrested.

In addition, two foreigners were also hiding in a large drain, but were successfully arrested by the operation team.

Selangor JIM director Khairrul Aminus Kamaruddin said the operation was carried out in collaboration with the Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ), the Serdang District Police Headquarters (IPD), the Selangor National Registration Department (JPN) and the Malaysian Civil Defense Force (APM).

“We checked a total of 530 foreigners including 11 women.

“The results of the inspection found that most of the foreigners had committed offenses in valid travel documents, misused passports and overstayed,” he told reporters after the operation.

Also present was the Mayor of MBSJ, Datuk Mohd Fauzi Mohd Yatim.

Khairrul said that his party will conduct an investigation in accordance with Section 6(1)(c) of the Immigration Act 1959/63, Section 15(1)(c) of the same act and Regulation 39(b) of the Immigration Regulations 1963.

He said that all those detained were taken to the Selangor JIM Office for inspection and further investigation.
