Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : This Is A Bangladeshi Man With Malaysian IC + Chinese Name!
A photo of a Malaysian identity card with this message is going viral on WhatsApp, claiming to show a Bangladeshi man with a Chinese name!
Malaysia election is not here yet, already there are many Bangladeshis holding Malaysian identity cards but with Chinese names! This is the biggest joke of all!
Please send and share with all your friends, and let the whole world know about it, Malaysia boleh!
It’s being used as “evidence” that the government is either using Bangladeshi men with Malaysian IC to cheat at the coming general election in Malaysia, or the government has given many Bangladeshi men Malaysian citizenship.
Pang Chee Pin Is NOT A Bangladeshi Man With Malaysian IC + Chinese Name!
Pang Chee Pin’s MyKad (Malaysian identity card) keeps circulating every election season in Malaysia, as “evidence” of the government is giving Malaysian citizenship or at least, Malaysian identity cards, to Bangladeshi illegal immigrants in return for their vote.
Here are the reasons why this is just another example of FAKE NEWS on WhatsApp and social media!
Fact #1 : Pang Chee Pin Is A Malaysian Citizen
The Malaysian identity card of Pang Chee Pin that keeps going viral is genuine. Pang Chee Pin is a bonafide Malaysian citizen.
However, he is not of Bangladeshi origin. He is a Malaysian citizen of Indian heritage, who was adopted by a Chinese family when he was just one year old.
He originally had an Indian name, but his adopted father gave him a Chinese name, officially registering it with the authorities.
That’s why he has a MyKad with the name, Pang Chee Pin.
Fact #2 : JPN Confirmed Pang Chee Pin Is Malaysian Citizen
On 1 March 2017, the Malaysia National Registration Department (NRD / JPN) confirmed that Pang Chee Pin is indeed a Malaysian citizen, and an Indian man who was adopted by Chinese parents.
It also clarified that adoptive parents can change the name of their adopted child. In the case of non-Muslim children, the child may adopt his/her new family’s surname.
Fact #3 : His Cousin Explain It All In 2017
In 2017, The Star investigated Pang Chee Pin’s story, and spoke to his cousin, who only wanted to be known as Susan.
He and I are cousins. But when my uncle died some 25 years ago, my parents took him in and cared for him. He left our home about six years ago.
The last time we met was about three years ago in Kuala Lumpur Hospital where he was hospitalised due to a kidney problem.
According to my mother, Pang was adopted by my uncle and his wife to help lessen the burden of his biological family.
Fact #4 : Police Interviewed His Cousin In 2017
Susan said in 2017 that after her cousin’s MyKad went viral on social media, the police visited her house to record her statement.
She confirmed to them that Pang Chee Pin is indeed a Malaysian, and asked that people stop sharing his MyKad on social media.
Fact #5 : Pang Chee Pin Attended Local Schools
Susan told the Star that Pang Chee Pin to the same Chinese primary school as she did.
Only Malaysian citizens can attend Chinese primary schools under the Malaysia Ministry of Education.
Fact #6 : Pang Chee Pin Speaks Chinese Dialects Fluently
Susan revealed that Pang can speak fluent Mandarin, Hakka and Cantonese dialects. This was confirmed by a viral video showing Pang Chee Pin speaking flawless Mandarin.
For those who are wondering what he’s saying in the video, here’s some context provided by the creator of the video, 刘裕彬 (Low Yi Ping) :
!! Please pay attention!! To this old man!!
pang Chee pin(华人领养所以华人名)
Pang Chee Pin (Adopted by Chinese so he has a Chinese name)
ic number :830828-01-5855
He’s a veteran cheat who speaks Mandarin, Cantonese, specializes in asking people phones at a bargain, often at the train station or other places.
(subang ,shah alam ,setapak ,pj ,lowYat,kuchai lama)
Mostly in the KL area. Many people have been cheated. That day, we got hold of his phone and found that he had many victims listed inside. If you see him, call the police immediately! He’s been in KL for almost 10 years without getting caught. The last time my friend found it, he arrogantly said that he is a gangster, and pretended to threaten people with a knife, but he was just lying.
请大力的分享，不要让他一直骗下去，这种人罪该万死 。[adrotate banner=”4″]
Please share this out, and don’t let him keep cheating other people, such people deserve to die.
他应该是住setapak genting klang 的。
He should be living in Setapak, Genting or Klang.
If you spot him, please send me a PM (Private Message)
Or call the police.
