IGP confirms existence of North Korean companies

SHAH ALAM, FEB 28: The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar confirms the existence of two companies in this country, said to be run by North Korean directors and shareholders.
He said those companies are the International Global System Sdn Bhd and International Golden Services Sdn Bhd.
According to him, International Global System Sdn Bhd was registered in 2005 and runs multimedia, electronics and trading businesses.
International Golden Services Sdn Bhd on the other hand was registered in 2012 and runs information technology and communication technology products businesses.
“Referring to international media reports yesterday, I deny that those companies are ostensibly controlled by North Korean intelligence agency called Glocom.
“Based on website which was registered in 2009, registration was done by International Global System Sdn Bhd.
“Based on that website too, International Golden Services Sdn Bhd operates as a company that can be contacted,” he said in a statement today.
Khalid said initial investigation found these two companies are in the process of closing down.
He added that police are always monitoring any development and will take stern action to ensure that Malaysia is not used as a location for activities that could threaten national safety and sovereignty.
International news agency Reuters reported yesterday, claiming Glocom is a company run by North Korean intelligence agency that sells combat radio-equipment.
It said Glocom has advertised over 30 radio systems for military and paramilitary organisations on its website in Malaysia,
Reuters also quoted United Nations (UN) Security Council’s report claiming the company’s transactions are in violation of UN’s sanctions.
