He says the situation could have been bloody if not for the vigilance of their security guards who were able to calm the dogs.

“They were able to quell the situation. There are a lot of Chinese nationals operating here without paying the VAT, and when we come to enforce the law, they open their dogs. We will deal with them for trying to push us back. Dogs were released on us but thanks to our security officers in the name of the preventive staff.”

He also added that the case will be handed over to the Attorney-General’s Department after their preliminary investigation for possible prosecution.
