KUALA LUMPUR – The allegedly missing high-tech military radar equipment at Tanjung Pelepas Port (TPP), Johor had arrived safely at its destination.
Director-General of Royal Malaysian Customs Department Datuk Indera Subromaniam Tholasy denied the claims reported by the media today.
“The Royal Malaysian Customs Department (RMCD) wishes to deny the statement that a container consisting of high-tech military radar reportedly missing has in fact arrived at its destination in Rotterdam Port at the Netherlands,” he said in a statement today.
According to Tholasy, they are conducting an internal investigation on the adherence to Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for the release of the trades which required special permits under the Strategic Trade Act (STA) 2010.
A local newspaper reported on the disappearance of the radar equipment at TPP today.
The matter then received the response from Johor Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin who wanted the state government and authorities to investigate the matter thoroughly, for the fear that it may tarnish the reputation of the ports in the state. – MalaysiaGazette
