SIBU: The Government and police were again urged to look into what the Sibu MP perceives as a deteriorating security situation in the town.
Wong Ho Leng said the recent murder of a bank manager was enough to warrant immediate action to prevent serious crimes from happening.
Wong claimed that everywhere he went, residents had been complaining about the state of security here as “after the latest murder, people here feel no place is safe as the victim was killed in his own bedroom”.
Meanwhile, police have said they had gathered some vital leads in the case.
A check with them yesterday revealed that no arrest had been made yet.
On another issue, Wong hoped that the police would take action against rampant illegal Internet gambling which he described as “Internet casino”.
“It has been mushrooming all over the country and authorities have failed to act effectively to stop this,” he said.
He said he had raised the issue in Parliament last week but had yet to receive a reply from the Government.
Wong also disclosed that Sarikei MP Ding Kuong Hiing and Batu MP Tian Chua had also raised the same issue in Parliament.
