2,000 former detainees could be roaming the streets of Selangor

PETALING JAYA: With the repeal of emergency and preventive detention laws there could be as many as 2,000 former detainees roaming free in Selangor, Tan Sri Ramon Navaratnam said.
The sharp rise in crimes in Selangor recently could be attributed to this, said Ramon, who is the Selangor chapter adviser of Malaysia Crime Prevention Foundation.
He said there had been an obvious surge in serious crime cases in Selangor despite statistics showing a decline in the overall crime index.
“In Selangor, about 2,000 detainees were released when the laws were repealed,” Ramon said.  Read more ......

Thieves resurfacing in neighbouring TTDI

Recent incidents in TTDI, reported by TTDI residents

June 21
A friend almost became snatch theft victim in ttdi in front of the esso station. 2 guys on a bike was pulling on her bag till she fell. She screamed continuously and one of them got off the bike to attack her. Lucky another friend was passing by in a car saw, stopped and started honking continuously. We heard it from across the street and ran towards her and they gave up and left . This is about 200m from the police station

June 22
Last Friday, around 2pm I saw a very unsuspecting smartly dressed Chinese male walking along Jalan Helmi 10 side lane. As he was in office attire, I thought he was just another innocent guy walking . After few minutes later, he tried to break in neighbor’s car that was parked at side lane near Jalan Helmi 9. I and my son shouted to get neighbors’ attention and he ran away. I
immediately informed Balai TTDI just to get them to do some work. Within five minutes few policemen were dispatched to the scene to get clearer description of the guy. Initially, I thought this thief must have left TTDI and no way police could find him and maybe the police just doing ‘some formality’ to pay a visit because I alerted them. Without realizing, in about 15minutes more than 10 policemen dropped by at the scene and ensued to search for this guy and many
of them were in plainclothes. Soon after, while we neighbors still chatting of what had happened earlier, we were so surprised that a police came and informed that the guy has been caught! Later the police informed that this car thief confessed that he has been doing this job nearly 7 years! Lesson learnt; just call the police to do ‘some work’ even if you think that they can’t do much. Kudos Polis TTDI!

The Selangor Time - June 15-17 2012
First time councillor Lee Suet Sen aims to address traffic snarls in his zone by coordinating monitoring efforts by the MBPJ.  
The councillor for Zone 9, which includes Damansara Kim, SS19 and SS17A, says residents are far from happy with construction works along Jalan Damansara.
He says the ongoing development along the boundary separating PJ and KL bogs down traffic heading onto the LDP.

"We are getting MBPJ Engineering Dept to do a study on how to alleviate the problem", says the 42-year old civil engineer.

The PJ mayor has also called for a meeting between the council and the developers, which he hopes will be held in a month's time.

Lee, who has his own business and attends to council matters in his free time, says the most challenging aspect of being a councillor is following up on plans.

"Small or big matter, we must have consistent follow-up. We need to have a culture of making things happen," he stresses.

He gives an example of how a collapsed riverbank in Damansara Bistari was not promptly addressed which he blames on unresponsive government depts.

The councillor says his own organisation, which has many ideas to improve traffic and landscaping, has to work harder to put thoughts into action.
Lee operates from his service centre at the basement level of Menara MBPJ but he also keeps in touch with the public mostly through phone and email.

"I also meet them at RA meetings. In fact, we are having a town hall meeting on June 21 at the SS20/26 basketball court at 8:30pm", he says.

Despite his hectic schedule, the father of four still finds time for sports and reading.

Website to rate car park safety

KUALA LUMPUR: A local women's media channel,, is urging Malaysians to start rating the safety of car parks in selected shopping malls around the Klang Valley in efforts of heightening awareness on crime "hotspots" specifically targeting single women drivers.

The VenusBuzz CARing Project is an initiative by online women's media channel

It was initiated last year after realising that not much was being done to make public spaces safe for women since  incidences such as the murder of Canny Ong in 2003.

Last week, a girl was kidnapped from the parking lot of The Curve but managed to escape without harm.  

Actress Lina Teoh was harassed on the road and had her car attacked by men on motorcycles.
