MALAYSIA TO FENCE BORDERS TO CURB EXCESSIVE SMUGGLING

Each year, Malaysian  Government loses more than RM7bil to the smuggling of goods such as rice, petrol, diesel, alcoholic bevera­ges, cigarettes, fertilizer and herbicides.
There is also the matter of firearms being smuggled into the country, stolen vehicles snuck into neighbouring countries and fake fashion brands making their way in.
The Home Ministry is conducting a feasibility study on the fencing which will also serve as a replacement for existing border fences that are in deplorable condition.
Erecting security fences totaling 2,666km along the nation's borders is being considered as a measure to stop smuggling and people trafficking.
The fencing is for our borders with Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei, and what's being studied is the type of fence, its height, total cost, how it will be guarded and if it needs to be 
electrified. 
A special committee, known as the Security Fence Technical Team, is conducting the study that is expected to be completed by early October. It will then be submitted to the Cabinet. 
The borders at the north of the peninsula need about 650km of fencing while those in Sabah and Sarawak require about 2,000km, said Badrul Hisham, who is Smuggling Prevention Unit (UPP) director-general.
