Bukit Aman mulls joint anti-cybercrime committee with Thai police | #cybercrime | #computerhacker

THE Royal Malaysia Police were mulling establishing a joint committee with Thai police to tackle cross-border cybercrime.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigations Department director Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain said the proposal was among those presented during today’s Thailand-Malaysia Working Committee Meeting on Criminal Activities.

He said the purpose of establishing the committee was to make it easier for police in both countries to share information regarding cross-border cybercrime.

“For instance, a Malaysia-based online fraud ring that targets victims in Thailand and vice versa makes it difficult for police forces in both countries to combat such activities due to jurisdictional limitations.

“I will bring the proposal for the establishment of the committee to the Inspector-General of Police for consideration,” Shuhaily told a press conference after the closing ceremony of the meeting today.

Also present was Royal Thai Police Assistant Commissioner-General Sarawut Karnpanich, who headed the Thai delegation.

At the same press conference, Sarawut said Thailand has seen an increase in the number of cybercrimes committed over the past few years.

“Similarly with Malaysia, cybercrime is on the rise in Thailand and we are doing our best to cope with updated technology and find areas where we can cooperate further,” said Sarawut.

The two-day meeting that ended today discussed topics related to cross-border crimes such as terrorism, drug and human smuggling, maritime offences and piracy. – Bernama, September 7, 2023.
