Truth : Police Raid On Penang Condo Was Genuine, Not Fake!
The truth is the police raid on the Penang condo was REAL, not fake. They were not robbers, but genuine police officers.
The Nilai district police issued a statement on 13 July 2021, clarifying the incident.
On 12 July 2021, police officers from the Nilai Commercial Crime department, acting on Op Pelican information, went to the condominium unit on Logan Road, in Penang.
Accompanied by two fellow officers from the Dato Keramat police station, they were looking for a man to assist in their investigation concerning a case of fraud.
According to Nilai district police chief, Mohd Fazley Ab Rahman, they introduced themselves and presented their police identity cards, but the lady refused to let them in.
The video only showed one of the plainclothes officer wearing a yellow PDRM vest showing what appears to be his MyKad, and not a police ID.
Later, two Penang police officers in uniform arrived at her unit to assure her that the men were not robbers posing as fake police officers.
She then let them into her unit, but they did not locate the man inside. No arrest or seizures was made that night.
