Pic by Farhan Najib Ng Lee Kee, 33, said her Proton Iswara Aeroback car was stolen in Canning Garden here on Oct 26 and it was captured by AES camera at Km204.6 of the North-South Expressway near Taiping on Oct 27 at 7.06am for speeding. "While many are against AES, I, for one, am supportive as it captured the face of the suspect who stole my car," she said here yesterday. Speaking at a press conference by Perak MCA Public Services and Complaints Bureau chief Datuk Lee Kon Yin, Ng said the AES had made it easier for police to nab the suspect. "Since receiving the compound on Nov 2, I have been having sleepless nights." Ng said she is now in a "Catch-22" situation as the state Road Transport Department insisted she pay the RM300 fine or risk being blacklisted. "I have written to the RTD director-general requesting the image snapped by the AES camera," she said, adding that she had lodged a report of her missing vehicle on Oct 26.
