Malaysians bring #chocs4cops to snub the country’s ousted PM

The Malaysian police have a sweet tooth, apparently

Malaysians are coming together to try and satisfy the police’s sweet tooth.

A campaign called #chocs4cops was launched Sunday calling for Malaysians to give chocolates to their local police officers, Reuters reported Wednesday.

The campaign came about after the country’s former prime minister Najib Razak alleged that police “helped themselves to food and chocolates in the refrigerator” when they raided his family’s properties.

The raids were conducted as part of investigations into the 1MDB scandal involving Razak, who was accused of diverting and laundering billions from the state investment fund through shell companies and bank accounts located in numerous countries around the world. 284 boxes containing luxury handbags, watches, jewellery, cash of various denominations and other valuables were collected from the searches.

“When [the complaint] came out, I really felt strongly about that,” Siti Kasim, the lawyer behind the campaign, told the publication.

“My instinct was, ‘what a meanie,’ you know? You want to complain about someone eating your chocolate? I mean, how ridiculous. To me, it is a very stupid thing to cry over,” she added.

The event has received interest from over 2,000 people. Delivery of the chocolates are expected to be made to police stations this Saturday between 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., according to the Facebook post.

If the allegations are true, this would be unprofessional behavior on the part of the police, as some Twitter users have pointed out. But other Malaysians are having a whale of a time making digs at the former government:

“[The chocolates] were important to my client, who told me to include that in the statement,” Harpal Singh Grewal, Razak’s lawyer who filed the initial complaint, told Reuters, saying he wasn’t aware what type of chocolates Razak was concerned about.
