Ops Mandarin: 33 Illegal Immigrants Nabbed In Kelantan

KOTA BHARU, Feb 14 (Bernama) -- The Kelantan Immigration Department detained 33 illegal immigrants in an operation, code-named 'Ops Mandarin' conducted from last night until early this morning, in conjunction with Chinese New Year.

Its director, Wan Mohammed Saupee Wan Yusoff, said all the illegal immigrants, aged between 12 to 49, were arrested at the Gua Musang Road Transport Department's Enforcement Station from 9pm to 3am today.

"The detained illegal immigrants involved three Bangladeshi men, four men and a woman from Indonesia, two male Indian nationals, a Pakistani man and 17 men and five women from Myanmar," he said in a statement here, today.

Wan Mohammed Saupee said all the illegal immigrants were detained under Section 15 (1) for residing in the country exceeding the permitted period and Section 6 (1) (a) of the same act for not having a valid pass or permit to stay in the country.

He said all of them were now detained at the Tanah Merah Immigration Depot for further action.
