KUALA LUMPUR

Ten exhibits at the wax museum in i-City, Shah Alam, were destroyed in a fire last Wednesday, in what is suspected to be an act of sabotage.

In a statement on Monday, I-Berhad, the master developer of i-City, said the Red Carpet@i-City was hit by a break-in early Wednesday, which resulted in a fire that damaged a portion of the showcase.

It said that according to the closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage, which had been handed over to the police, there was a high likelihood that the break-in and fire were the work of saboteurs involving three individuals.

“Fortunately, the damage was limited as a result of the quick response by the police and the Fire and Rescue Department,” said I-Berhad information manager Tang Soke Cheng.

As i-City is one the recommended destinations during Visit Malaysia Year 2014, the company said the sabotage was of utmost concern.

When contacted, Tang said the company was still looking into the total damage caused by the blaze.

“The i-City’s auxiliary police team is working with the police to prevent such incidents in the future.”

The main exhibition area of Red Carpet will be closed to the public for reconstruction and replacement of the damaged wax exhibits.

The museum’s operation team has taken alternative measures to relocate a number of unaffected wax exhibits to a smaller location for visitors to interact and enjoy the experienece at RM5 per entry.

According to the statement, refurbishment works on the damaged portion of the museum would begin after Chinese New Year and were expected to take two months to complete.

Tang said those who had bought tickets for the Chinese New Year period could choose either to visit the newly-refurbished wax museum on a later date or write in to the company for a refund.
