A developing story at Port Klang customs….
“From what I hear, there appears to have been a work-to-rule in Port Klang over the last few days,” said Klang MP Charles Santiago, when contacted.
“Emotions seem to be running high there,” said a forwarding agent who overheard the hoo-ha over the phone when speaking to an associate at the scene.
The forwarding agent told me he was informed that forwarding “boys” are now gathering at Wisma Kastam in Port Klang. “I don’t think they are protesting against the Customs though. Many of them deal with the Customs officers and are sympathetic towards them.”
He said the MACC had conducted a series of raids on forwarding agents, shipping companies and the customs over the last week, and questioned their method of investigation.
Santiago meanwhile called for a public inquiry into the death of the Customs assistant director at the MACC premises this morning. “All the MACC officers involved in that investigation should be suspended pending the outcome of the inquiry,” he said.
