Taiping War cemetery Tombstones Vandalised

 5 January 2017

Several tombstones in the historical Taiping War cemetery were found vandalised and broken, said Taiping OCPD Asst Comm Harrith Kam Abdullah

ACP Harrith added that the police were alerted to the vandalism after they received a report from a garderner at the cemetery on Jan 3 that eight tombstones had been damaged.

He said no undergarments or condoms were found in the cemetery which had, in the past, been trespassed by people looking for a place to engage in sexual activities.

ACP Harrith urged people with information on the intrusion to assist the police with the investigation into the trespass on burial grounds and refrain from spreading rumours.

The cemetery is where the remains of World War Two soldiers are buried. It is open to public from 8am to 5pm.
