Kuala Lumpur, Feb 9 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Malaysian police are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding the disappearance of about 700,000 ultrathin condoms.

The Japanese firm, Sagami Rubber Industries handed the condoms for shipment. According to the police, when the shipment got to Japan, it was realized that the locks to the container have been replaced with the container emptied.

The Malaysian police wouldn’t have any of it and the tone of a police spokesman summed it all.

The spokesman said that, “We take the matter of the missing condoms very seriously… we are investigating the matter.”

The company started its production in Malaysia back in 1997. The company is the first Japanese condom maker and the manager of the Malaysian factory said this is the first time that such a thing has happened.

It’s a huge loss because the company puts the estimate at $1.5 million. It might be that this is the first time that the goods of Sagami Rubber Industries have been stolen at the Malaysian port.

Others have been complaining of theft at the port for years now. It is believed that most of the thefts are inside job and they are often very difficult to track.
