Buster On Beggars

Saturday, 31st July 2010

To investigate myself on the rampant of the "Beggar Syndicate" in Sarawak as reported by one of the English newspaper yesterday, I went to one of the popular spot in Mile 10th town that is its Weekend market or "Pasar Tamu".
As I was looking at the "Upa Lalih",  I could hear the sound of muscic coming from the vacinity   not far from the "upa lalih" stall. After paying for my upa lalih, I went to look for the place where the music came from. There I saw a man at about the age of 55, sang a Chinese songs. 
I was looking at his behaviour there for about 5 minutes, and during those period I could see not less than 10 people "donated' to him. Peeping into his basket, I could see plenty of RM 1 notes inside. And according to one of the stall operator that I managed to talk to at the market, I was informed that the man was sent by a towkay to the market very early in the morning.
Feeling dismayed, I call the police Mobile Patrol Vehicle (MPV) at 082-244444, and reported the matter to the duty operator. Without waiting for the police to come, I left the market at about 0845hrs.
I took the pictures of the man here. If you encounter  the same man soliciting for donation, please leave your comment here.
