We must save Malaysia from the triad of criminal cartels


No one is safe when Malaysia is now controlled by a triad of criminal cartels!


The Member of Parliament (MP) for Bukit Mertajam, Steven Sim Chee Keong today urged the government to introduce drastic measures in order to save our country from compromised Malaysian authorities that have been infiltrated by criminal cartels. This is after the revelation by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador that there is a ‘cartel’ of corrupt top police officials inside the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) out to undermine and topple him.

Steven, who is also the former Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports asserted,


“It is very frightening to read from highly credible authorities on the existence of a triad of criminal cartels controlling major sectors in this country,”

MP for Bukit Mertajam, Steven Sim Chee Keong.

These criminal cartels are revealed to have control over various major sectors in Malaysia, such as border security, food supply and the police force itself. The triad of criminal cartels consists of the below:

  • Immigration Cartel
  • Meat Cartel
  • Police Cartel

This shocking revelation exposes the culture of corruption and politicisation of law enforcement departments in the country that have been going on for decades. In relation to this, the DAP lawmaker stressed,


“We urgently need to save Malaysia from this evil and nefarious situation. No one is safe with our lives being daily affected, controlled, and dictated by powerful criminal forces working hand in glove with corrupt politicians and government officials”


Immigration cartel

According to the MP for Bukit Mertajam, the Immigration cartel involves something called the ‘Migrant Industrial Complex’.

In the past, this cartel is the mastermind behind a multi-billion ringgit scheme profiting companies close to the then Barisan Nasional (BN) ruling party, providing services for the Immigration Department.

The Migrant Industrial Complex works in cahoot with politicians, and government officials not only to supply immigration services to the country but also are involved in the “business of migrant workers” where importing migrant workers is not to support local business but rather is taken to be a lucrative business for well-connected cronies.

Furthermore, various authorities including the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) had indentified an “insiders syndicate” comprising border guards, immigration officials and other government officials to be involved in human trafficking activities.

Just as recent as December last year, we were shocked by the revelation that Muslim consumers in Malaysia had been buying meat of dubious origin including horse and kangaroo meat sold as halal beef.

The report also exposed how officers from government agencies played a major role in allowing the importation of meat of dubious origins and suspicious quality, including through the use of fake halal logo.

Steven himself have pushed for the issue to be handled comprehensively, given how it involves food safety. He stressed,


“This (Meat Cartel) is not only a Muslim issue as the food safety and health of all Malaysians as a whole are at stake.”

Last week, the IGP exposed the existence of a Police Cartel of corrupt officers up to the highest level where even an ex-IGP was allegedly receiving bribes from crime syndicates.

Worse, Abdul Hamid claimed that the Police Cartel was trying to dominate PDRM and had tried to topple him.

Save Malaysia: Restore Parliament, Establish RCI and Relaunch PH reforms


Even though the cartels have been around for decades, presently, the situation is degrading further given the highly unstable Perikatan Nasional (PN) government. Incompetent leadership, corruption, abandonment of the rule of law, anti-democratic abuse of power via political coup and suppression of freedom of speech are making things today far worse than it was before.

In order to save our country, the Bukit Mertajam MP lists down three imperative steps that the government needs to urgently take, which include:

  1. Restoring Parliament to allow the normal functioning of democracy.
  2. Establishing a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to investigate and crush these entrenched the triad of criminal cartels.
  3. Relaunching the reform agenda under Pakatan Harapan to restore professionalism to government institutions, fight corruption and return public confidence in our law enforcement agencies. 

Despite the recent controversies, Steven still iterates his faith to the majority of the police officers and civil servants. Furthermore, he calls upon all Malaysians to come forward and save our beloved country. – The Rocket.
