He is caught early and is facing his destiny while many of the '40' thieves are still at large.
So, to make their life easier the members of the gang of 40 thieves are going around plotting to undermine Ali Baba.
In the real Ali Baba story, it is Morgana who plays the role of masquerading and destroying the plots set by the thieves.
In the Malaysian story, the anti-kleptocracy squad has its Morgana, going after the looted money. But this Morgana does not do the same job as the original one. She is only a crime fighter, not a slayer.
Yet, with Morgana now in action in Kuala Lumpur, the thieving elements are constantly changing the plot.
They tried the evil plan of chipping the stone at Ali Baba's house, but it failed though many people showed up for them.
