Anwar Ibrahim's victory in the civil courts has brought about no change in the manner in which the Royal Malaysian Police or its personnel treat and handle the public. Just last week, a boy is abused 'Anwar style' for an offence which he apparently did not commit.
The police, according to the boy's testimony, acted as law keeper, judge and jury. He was perceived guilty even before being proven otherwise. This way, the police can close the case and quickly announce to all and sundry that they have done their job.
This latest incident should be unilaterally condemned at the highest levels. Pak Lah as home affairs minister should order an immediate investigation into the incident and errant policemen should be charged and jailed for abuse.
Instead, we hear nothing from the politicians, the ministers and leaders of our great nation. The MIC which is supposedly is the 'Indian connection' in the Barisan Nasional is but silent for now, especially since a well-known human rights lawyer has taken up the cause.
Anwar's plea that his own case be a lesson, that the police are not above the law, again goes unheeded. I hope Keadilan, as a multiracial party can put their money where their mouth is and take up this case. Fight for justice to be done.
Don't let this case be swept into the mountain heap of forgotten cases. Enough is enough.
