A 43-YEAR-OLD Malaysian suspected of being the leader of a human smuggling syndicate was arrested on Wednesday at a fishing village in Kampung Sungai Melayu in Western Johor.

Police Coast Guard commander Teo Kian Teck said: 'Royal Malaysian Police officers raided the house he was staying in in the wee hours of the morning.'

His arrest - the third of a syndicate leader in the past nine months - came after a warrant for his arrest was issued by the Singapore authorities last July.
