I visited the family of the kindergarten teacher who passed away in Bandar Sunway as a result of snatch theft. Click here to read more about the incident.
The late Mdm Leong worked in Subang Jaya, lived in Taman Sri Muda and was walking on the pedestrian bridge connecting DUN Subang Jaya to DUN Seri Setia when she was attacked. All 3 state assemblymen : myself, Nik Nazmi (Seri Setia) and Shuhaimi Shafiei visited the family of the late Mdm Leong and gave financial assistance to the family on behalf of the Selangor State Government. Our condolences to her husband and daughters.
We urge the police and Home Ministry to beef up security in urban townships. Snatch thefts must be given heavy penalty and not be treated as petty crime. There are simply too many victims of snatch theft and the thieves must know that they can no longer get away with such senseless acts.
