Army Denies Seized Military Fatigues Belong To Them
"Investigations on the matter have been completed and they are not the digital uniform we are using although they look alike," he told reporters here today after giving a special interview in conjunction with the 81st Army Day.
He also said the uniforms were not obtained from the supplier appointed by Defence Ministry.
"They are believed to have been bought online from other parties," he said.
He said that it was an offence to put on army fatigues as it could cause confusion among the people.
"However, legal action could not be taken as existing legislations are not sufficiently relevant to eradicate the practice," he said.
On Feb 17, police seized 14 fake firearms including those that looked like Steyr automatic rifles, M16s, AK-47s and machine gun when they arrested a group of 18 men in military fatigues at Bukit Chee Leong, Jementah.
The group was believed to have converted a farm belonging to one of them as a location to carry out extreme sports using the fake weapons.
