Parti Amanah Negara submitted a memorandum to the Bukit Aman police headquarters today, demanding investigations on North Korean-linked security equipment firm Glocom’s presence in Malaysia.
Reuters reported last month that a North Korea spy agency was operating in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, selling battlefield radio equipment under the name of Glocom (Global Communications Co), thereby violating United Nations sanctions.
“We request an investigation into the information reported by local and international media about a local company believed to be operated by North Koreans.
“We don’t want this country to become a hotspot for human trafficking, drug trafficking, and now, a country selling their (North Korean) military equipment to the international market,” Amanah vice-president Salahuddin Ayub told reporters at the gate to the police headquarters.
He also demanded that inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar investigates Glocom and its ties to a “political heavyweight”.
Salahuddin was likely referring to Umno Veterans Club national secretary Mustapha Ya’akub, who was involved in setting up International Global System (M) Sdn Bhd, a company linked to Glocom.
