Police abuse in drug bust appalling

I refer to the article A story of corruption and police abuse.

An utterly appalling story. I understand Malaysian law is based on British laws. Can't the 22 guys jointly sue the police for their acts?

This is a blatant breach of human rights and the police must not be let to believe they can get away with it. Or am I too naive thinking this way?

I am about to have a long holiday in Malaysia as I have been in love with the country. But this story is very off-putting.
