Police arrest three Singaporeans involved in Malaysia kidnap case


Singapore Police Nabbed Three Persons Involved in Kidnapping in Malaysia

Three men were arrested by the Singapore Police Force (SPF) early yesterday (6 Jul 06) morning for their involvement in a kidnapping case which happened in Selangor on 30 Jun 06.
The arrests came about following a joint operation between SPF and the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP). Five other suspects have also been arrested by RMP in Malaysia.
On 30 Jun 2006, SPF received a request for assistance from RMP pertaining to a case of Kidnapping for Ransom which was reported earlier that morning in Selangor, Malaysia.
The hostage is a Malaysian Chinese man in his 60s. He was allegedly abducted by several unknown persons outside his bungalow house in Selangor on 30 Jun 2006 at about 8.30 am. His family subsequently received demands for a substantial ransom for his safe release.
Arising from the RMP request, CID and other SPF officers immediately swung into action to support RMP's investigations into the case. It was established that the suspects had eventually arranged for the ransom money to be handed over in Singapore.
The ransom money was picked up by a Singaporean man in the Choa Chu Kang estate in the early morning of 5 Jul 06. The hostage was then released unharmed in Selangor a few hours later.
RMP mounted several raids to arrest three Malaysians in Malaysia in connection with the kidnapping.
Consequently, SPF arrested two Singaporean Chinese men aged 28 and 35 years respectively in a house in Jalan Dinding at about 3 am on 6 Jul 06.
A third suspect, a 33-year-old Singaporean Chinese man was arrested at the Tuas Checkpoint an hour later. Nearly all the ransom money had been recovered from amongst the three Singaporean suspects.
Investigations into the case are still in progress.
Commissioner of Police, Mr Khoo Boon Hui says, "This successful operation to nab the kidnapping suspects is another manifestation of the close co-operation between RMP and SPF. Over the years, many criminals have been arrested on both sides of the causeway precisely because of the good understanding and readiness which officers from both police forces have when undertaking joint operations and investigations. I would like to congratulate officers from both forces in a job well done."
