Smugglers operating in the Golok river where a marine police boat was rammed and the officers were threatened in Tumpat on Thursday.
Rahim said the GOF would cooperate with the marine police to nab the people involved in the incident."We want them to know that they are not in power and can do anything they like if harassed by the authorities. "We won't tolerate this. They rammed an enforcement boat and took the law into their own hands. This shows that they do not respect the law."We will take action against them and will detain them if we spot them during our patrols," he said after witnessing the handing over of border duties between the Ninth and Seventh battalions here yesterday.At the handing over, Rahim said the Ninth Battalion had seized about RM3.83 million worth of smuggled goods, mostly cattle.He said 60 smugglers, including 10 women, were arrested during a series of operations along the border. He said 58 vehicles which were used in the smuggling operations were also seized."Three illegal immigrants, two Thais and a Myanmar, were also detained," he added.
