Recalled a time when I was driving my Ugandan uni mate, who was one of the most brilliant and gentle guy I’ve known. Police just stopped my car and asked him to get down. They only let us go when I spoke to them in Malay. We are harassing black students? That's disgusting. Stop being racist... Bullshit law enforcement claiming to check foreigners as they believe in law when they sell themselves for a belanje minum/makan.
chedetofficial Look sir, Do you ever expect this kind of Malaysia? Of course, not. Should Malaysia forget the contributions of foreigners to build Malaysia almost developed country? Why scramble, run & resist, even act rude when authorities carry out operations. If legitimate, follow instructions of authorities, show ur papers & if still treated badly, then can say smthng wrong wt Msian authorities.
Shame on Malaysia Imigresen cannot hide behind the 'comply with SOP' claim. Aren't they able to verify documents online? I know of a foreign worker with valid passport who dare not venture out to town during his off days because he heard of friends being locked due to 'suspicious documents'.
