No time limit to weed out illegal immigrants in Ops Mega 3.0 – Immigration DG


BANGI, Sept 14 (Bernama) — There is no time limit for the Immigration Department to weed out illegal immigrants under Ops Mega 3.0 operations after the expiry of the deadline for the rehiring and relocation programme says its director-general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali.

He said the Ops Mega 3.0 which was launched on July 1 showed positive results as the focus areas of foreigners in the capital such as the Kotaraya Complex and Central Market were quieter during the recent public holidays in conjunction with the National Day, the Birthday of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and Maal Hijrah.

He said since the launch on July 1 until yesterday (Sept 13), a total of 3,134 operations were carried out with 40,395 foreigners being examined and of the total, 10,495 illegal immigrants were detained.

Mustafar said the number of registered immigrants also dropped from 1.8 million last year to 1.7 million.
