Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Md Yunos has broken the law by inspecting and raiding a gaming outlet in Sabak Bernam, said Selangor chief police Abdul Samah Mat.
The red-shirts leader should have opted to use the correct channel, including sending a memorandum to the local authorities and informing police about the purported gaming outlet in Selangor, he said as quoted by Berita Harian today.
This was because the act of inspecting and raiding without permission was against the law and the premises owner could lodge a report against him for tresspassing, he said.
Such move would also put the safety of his followers and himself at risk, he added.
"He may have good intention by exposing gambling activities and vices, including illegal entertainment outlets around Selangor, but (he) should do it through the right channel," Abdul told Berita Harian.
"I am worried that there is an element of gansterism that could endanger himself," he said.
The Selangor top cop however wanted to confirm for himself the alleged 400 gaming outlets in Ampang Jaya as claimed by Jamal.
It was reported by NST Online that Jamal sent the images of the purported gaming centre in Sekinchan to the media on Dec 23, claiming there were at least nine similar shops operating in Sabak Bernam.
Jamal had raided the gaming centre in Sekinchan a few days after the Sabak Bernam District Council had sealed off his resort.- Mkini
