PH senior leader’s son arrested in Singapore is fake news, says IGP


KUCHING, Mar 14: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador has today rubbished a report that DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng’s son was arrested in Singapore for bringing in RM2 million without proper declaration.

A Chinese newspaper Nanyang Siang Pau had this morning published a report alleging that Lim’s son was arrested in Singapore’s airport and currently being detained while awaiting a court appearance or trial.

“It is definitely not true. We have not gotten any report that his (Lim) son was detained in Singapore.

“This is definitely fake news being spread,” he told The Star today.

Meanwhile, the report alleged that he had carried a large amounts of cash in transit into the country without proper declaration.

Singapore government requires that foreign visitors and Singapore residents make a declaration if the money they carry in or out of the country exceeds S$20,000.

In the report, sources said that a ‘Tan Sri’ was involved and senior leaders of the party had went to Singapore to find out further details of the incident.—DayakDaily
