KUALA TERENGGANU (The Star): A robbery suspect who tried to “rescue” his partner-in-crime who was detained by the police ended up being shot.

The 35-year-old parang-wielding man was shot in the left thigh on Thursday evening after he tried to attack two plainclothes detectives who had apprehended a 27-year-old suspect who was with him in Kampung Teluk Pasu, Manir, near here.

The detainee was on the wanted list for a series of break-ins in Gong Badak and Tok Jembal.

State deputy CID chief Supt K. Manoharan said as the policemen waited for a patrol car to take the younger suspect to the police headquarters, his accomplice who had run off, re-appeared armed with the parang to save his friend.

The policemen fired a warning shot but it did not deter the man. Another shot was fired, hitting the man in the thigh.

The assailant then tried to escape on one of the detectives’ motorcycles but was detained after a short chase.

Police have remanded the man to facilitate investigations under Section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder.

He was sent for treatment to Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital where doctors removed the bullet from his thigh early yesterday morning.

It is learnt that he was also on the police wanted list for snatch thefts and break-ins.

In a separate development, a traffic policeman from the Dungun police headquarters suffered serious injuries after he was mowed down by an illegal car racer at the 79.6th kilometre of the Kuala Terengganu-Dungun road yesterday.

Korporal Azli Husin, 44, was manning a roadblock when the car rammed into him at high speed, dragging him several metres.

The policeman’s superior, Sarjan Abdul Hakim Samingan, said the 27-year-old driver was detained on the spot in the 1pm incident.

Korporal Azli who was initially treated at Dungun Hospital, was rushed to the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital after his situation worsened.

He was reported to be in a coma at the hospital’s intensive care unit.

KUALA TERENGGANU, May 14 (Bernama) — The police detained five men and confiscated 125 motorcycles in a 12-day operation from May 2 against illegal racing here.

“The men are aged between 17 and 20 years, and four of them were caught red-handed for reckless riding,” Kuala Terengganu acting police chief, Supt Abd Halim Ishak, told reporters Thursday.

A total of 1,465 motorcycles were inspected and 1,540 motorcyclists and pillion riders were screened, he added.

Abd Halim said the single biggest offence was riding without a licence, of which there were 173 cases, followed by riding without wearing helmets properly (138 cases), riding motorcycles without rear-view mirrors (84) and for number plate offences (73).

Fifty-five summonses were issued to those who did not have the “P” and “L” stickers, 27 for those who did not have the road tax disc, eight who were underaged, six who did not have insurance coverage and 103 for other offences.

Abd Halim said the police would continue to conduct similar operations indefinitely in line with the government’s desire to wipe out illegal racing.

Hence, he called on parents to cooperate by keeping an eye on their children’s daily activities, especially during the school holidays next month.

Anyone else who has information on illegal motorcycle racing can contact the police at 09-631 2222, he said.

KUALA TERENGGANU (The Star): Police arrested Datuk Dr Ahmad Ramzi Mohamad Zubir, the political secretary to former Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, on Tuesday to assist investigations into the threatening text message received by three Barisan Nasional assemblymen last month.

Deputy state police chief SAC II Hamzah Mohd Jamil said with Ahmad Ramzi’s arrest, police believed they have settled about 95 per cent of the case.

Police also seized two laptop computers and a modem from Ahmad Ramzi’s home in Kampung Kubang Parit, near here, at 3pm Tuesday.

“This is not an easy case as it involves technical matters. But we have acted to solve the case as soon as possible,” he said.

Police had been looking for Ahmad Ramzi as he was among the individuals who had given media statements regarding the death threat contained in the text message received by Ajil assemblyman Datuk Rosol Wahid, Abdul Halim Jusoh (Permaisuri) and Zakaria Abdullah (Paka) on April 13.

This prompted 10 Barisan assemblymen, including the three who received the message, to stay away from the Terengganu state assembly sitting on April 14.

Hamzah said, Ahmad Ramzi, who was a Barisan candidate in the 12th general election, was being held at the Terengganu police headquarters and would be remanded if the investigations could not be completed within 24 hours.

Police were investigating the case under Section 507 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation and Section 500 of the same law for defamation.

Ahmad Ramzi is also being investigated under the Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1988 for improper use of network services. – Bernama

Datuk Dr Ahmad Ramzi Mohammad, the political secretary to former Terengganu Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, is now wanted by police.

Police obtained today a warrant of arrest for the 42-year-old after he failed to take up their offfer to turn up for questioning within 72 hours.

Terengganu police had given him three days from Friday to show up or face arrest so that he can be interviewed in connection with the SMS death threats that were sent to three assemblymen last month.

Terengganu police deputy chief SAC II Hamzah Mohd Jamil said police have also issued an alert to the Immigration Department to ensure that Zamri does not leave the country.

Interpol have also been informed to trace Ahmad Ramzi’s whereabouts.
“Those with information about him should call the nearest police station as Ramzi’s cooperation is very much needed for this case,” he told reporters.

The SMS threat issue took centre stage last month amid a political tug of war between embattled Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said and at least 10 state assembleymen aligned to to Idris.

The three assemblymen lodged police reports shortly after receiving the SMS threats.

Ramzi, who is now Idris’ special officer, was also at the police station grounds when they lodged the reports.

In their reports, the three assemblymen said the SMSes were believed to have been sent by Ahmad’s senior private secretary , Wan Ahmad Wan Muda, who allegedly told them not to proceed with a rumoured plan to table a motion of no-confidence against Ahmad at the state assembly sitting.

The three and the seven other ‘rebels’, citing security concerns, boycotted the sitting next day and Wan Ahmad also lodged a police report on the matter next day.

Police later absolved him (Wan Ahmad) of any involvement. Several days later a 31-year-old clerk from Seri Kembangan was arrested at his house, suspected of being the SMS sender.

Ahmad Ramzi went missing a day after the clerk was arrested.

The case is being investigated under Section 507 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation by annonymous communication.
