Robbers Pretending To Be Government Officials : Fake News!
This is just FAKE NEWS. There is no gang of robbers pretending to be government officials!
The Malaysia Immigration Department and the Royal Malaysia Police announced on 13 July 2021, that the man in the photo is a genuine Immigration officer.
According to Ampang District Police Chief, ACP Mohamad Farouk Ishak, the Immigration officer was conducting an official investigation into an individual staying at a house in Pandan Indah, Ampang.
From the picture, you can clearly see that the officer is wearing a t-shirt with the Immigration Department HQ logo, and carries an Immigration Malaysia badge as well.
The Immigration officer introduced himself and inform the residents of the purpose of his visit. Therefore, the fake viral message is FALSE, and slanderous to the officer.
The 60 year-old Malaysian homeowner who hosted the Immigration officer during his inspection also lodged a police report over the matter.
