Top cop Abdul Hamid Bador says the police will assist the domestic trade and consumer affairs ministry with investigations into the meat import cartel case.

He said the department had also opened investigation papers over the issue based on reports lodged by several individuals and NGOs.

“This issue is related to trade, so the most relevant (authority) to investigate it is the ministry, but in the meantime the police will investigate reports claiming that there are cartels that commit irregularities with regards to imported meat.

“If it is proven that such activities exist and it causes concern to the public, we will enforce the law,” he said at a press conference today.

However he added that no arrests have been made so far in connection with the case.

The media had reported that a meat cartel was believed to be involved in smuggling non-certified meat from China, Ukraine, Brazil and Argentina before repackaging it with fake halal labels at a warehouse in Senai, Johor.
