    KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian government is taking strong action against individuals involved in the sale of synthetic drugs on the dark web, as well as on popular messaging platforms like Telegram and WhatsApp. Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil stated that his ministry, working in collaboration with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), will not hesitate to take action once detailed information about the illicit activities is obtained.

    Fahmi responded to National Anti-Drugs Agency (AADK) director-general Suteko Ahmad Belon’s statement regarding the accessibility of synthetic drugs on the dark web and messaging apps. Belon highlighted that drug addicts can now easily purchase synthetic drugs for as low as RM18. Fahmi assured that the ministry is closely monitoring the situation and is committed to cracking down on these illegal activities.

    In light of these developments, Fahmi disclosed that he had recently attended a meeting with AADK to discuss and devise effective measures to combat drug abuse. The meeting sought to establish comprehensive mechanisms to curb the sale and distribution of illegal substances in the country. Fahmi stressed the government’s dedication to keeping drugs out of the hands of vulnerable individuals and protecting public health.

    During a press conference after the Cabinet Committee on the Eradication of Drugs (JKMD) meeting, Suteko emphasized that illicit substances like yaba pills, methamphetamine, and ecstasy are being ordered online and sent discreetly to buyers’ homes via courier or delivery services. This alarming trend further emphasizes the urgency of taking immediate action to dismantle drug networks operating through anonymous platforms.

    “We are taking these threats very seriously, and no efforts will be spared in ensuring the safety and well-being of our society. We will work tirelessly to gather the necessary information and bring those responsible to justice,” Fahmi stated, reaffirming the government’s determination to combat the drug trade.

    The Malaysian government’s proactive approach to tackling synthetic drug sales showcases its unwavering commitment to address the pressing issue of drug abuse. By targeting dark web marketplaces and messaging apps, the authorities aim to disrupt the supply chain and protect Malaysian citizens from the detrimental effects of drug addiction.
