A lawyer friend called me yesterday, saying how dissappointed she was with the authorities who are supposed to protect the public who helped giving infos on loan sharks but ended up to be working with the ah longs.
Why must they revealed details of informers to the loan sharks, is a BIG question but she believed some members of the police force are collaborating with the syndicate.
"Then, how did some informations about the informers such as their names, address and phone numbers get to the ah longs?
"When the police is on pursuit of the loan sharks, few of their members are on the take by leaking this informations to them. In the end, the informers are being threatened and not the borrowers!," she said.
I believe in her. 'On the take' happens everywhere and at all levels of services but this one has gone too far, I suppose.
Some friends in the media and also in Bukit Aman told me they believed a few persons whom loan shark victims always seek solace from, are also connected to the syndicate. There are politicians too.
"We are trying to gather enough evidence to nail them," said a senior Bukit Aman officer.
However, will they nab this 'famous' guy?
