In case you weren’t caught up with the latest news, our former prime minister, Dato’ Seri Najib Razak complaint that some police personnel had raided the fridge at his home and eaten chocolates during their raid at his residence on May 19.
According to The Straits Times, Najib’s lawyers had issued a statement alleging that chocolates had gone missing from a fridge at one of the premises following the police search, however, no one has come forward to give any information on the alleged chocolate theft.
Federal Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director Commissioner Datuk Seri Amar Singh said in a press conference that he had requested the lawyers to come forward and lodge a police report.
“With regard to the disappearing chocolates, tell us exactly who had taken the chocolates and we will investigate further.
“I wish to reiterate that during our search, I called in all my officers and had given them a very strict and stern warning that no photographs were to be taken and we were supposed to conduct the search as professionally as we can because we are searching the premises of the ex-prime minister and his family.”
Amused by the mystery of the missing chocolates, Malaysians have taken to social media to organize a chocolate donation drive for Malaysia’s police force.
The ‘Jom Bagi Coklat Kat Abang & Akak Polis‘ event – loosely translated as ‘Chocolates for our brothers and sisters in the police force’ – will take place Saturday (today), May 26, from 4 pm to 5 pm and the #Chocs4Cops tagline has been trending on social media.
The organizer of the event, lawyer Siti Kasim urged Malaysians to drop by with their chocolates at the Sentul district police headquarters in Kuala Lumpur or their local police stations as part of the event.
Siti Kasim told The Star that the event is also being held in conjunction with the fasting month of Ramadhan.
“In conjunction with Ramadan, let us all give chocolates to our police force as a token of appreciation for their hard work of ensuring the security of our beloved country.
“Please deliver at your local police station, then post your photos or videos on the page or your profile. Let’s flood our timeline with joyful photos and videos!”

She revealed that the idea for the event came from a complaint made by Dato’ Seri Najib who alleged that some police personnel raided the fridge at his residence and ate his chocolates.
“I think that they are sometimes treated unfairly because of some bad apples but the majority of them are very nice people. I am kind of surprised that there is so much traction. I think a lot of people feel the same about how they are treated.”
