Climbing Menara Merdeka: Police waiting for information from SKMM, immigration

PETALING JAYA: A viral video showing a Russian couple climbing to the top of Menara Merdeka 118 here was recently referred to the Communications and Multimedia Commission (SKMM) to investigate the authenticity of the footage.

Kuala Lumpur Deputy Chief of Police, Datuk Yahaya Othman said, his side is also working with the Malaysian Immigration Department to help investigate the case.

“So far, we are still waiting for a response from the immigration department regarding the entry record of the couple in this country.

“We are also working with SKMM on the validity and authenticity of the video recording that was transmitted through the ‘Sky Scraper City Forum’ website,” he said at a press conference after the Special New Year’s Eve 2023 Operation at the roadblock on Jalan Loke Yew leading to downtown, early this morning.

According to him, his party is also recording the conversation of the management of the tower, Perbadanan Nasional Berhad (PNB) to help the investigation.


“We do not rule out the possibility that the recording was produced with the latest technology without having to be in the tower.

“Based on the initial investigation, the PNB management stated that the strict control system made throughout the tower area made it difficult for unauthorized parties to enter and climb the tower,” he explained.

Yahaya added that the police were waiting for the results of the investigation made after referring to SKMM and immigration.

“So far, the police have received a report made by the management after the video of the couple climbing Menara Merdeka 118 went viral recently,” he said.

Previously, the media reported that the police will conduct an investigation against a couple from Russia who are believed to have trespassed to climb Menara Merdeka 118.

Earlier, the photo of the couple, Ivan Beerkus and Angela Nikolau from the top of the second tallest building in the world was uploaded on the website

The couple is believed to have used a drone to take pictures and climbed using a ladder from inside the tower to reach the top.- MESSENGER
