KUALA LUMPUR, (March 24) — The Royal Malaysian Police constantly monitors the involvement of Malaysians in the so-called IS militant group activities, says Bukit Aman Internal Security and Public Order Department director, Datuk Muhammad Fuad Abu Zarim.
He said it was worrying to think that when such individuals returned to the country, they might form new militant groups and enlist the younger generation as members.
“There are no militant groups here yet, but if left unchecked, it can be disastrous.
“Such monitoring, together with surveillance is also aimed at tackling other security threats, if any, in the country,” he said during an interview with reporters at the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman here recently.
On illegal immigrants, Muhammad Fuad cited the detention of about 1,400 illegals in Cameron Highlands during an operation launched in collaboration with other law enforcement agencies.
