MP suggests MACC probe cops opposed to IPCMC

Published:  |  Modified:

Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng has suggested that police officers opposed to an Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) be investigated by the MACC.

Lim said this was to establish whether such officers fear the IPCMC because their wealth does not commensurate with their positions.

"There must be a reason why they fear having the IPCMC set up – they are afraid they will be subject to an investigation by the IPCMC," he said in a statement today.

"One particular case needs attention, (that of) former CID director Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd, whose Australian bank account (with deposits of more than A$320,000, or RM930,700) was frozen."

Lim said Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador could report such officers to the MACC for a thorough investigation to determine if their lifestyle and assets matched their incomes.

He also praised Hamid's support for the IPCMC despite opposition from within the police force.

The DAP lawmaker also urged Hamid to look into several other unsolved murder cases, including those of Altantuyaa Shaariibuu, Teoh Beng Hock, Hussain Najadi, Kevin Morais and the "enforced disappearance" of Raymond Koh, Amri Che Mat, Joshua Hilmy and Ruth Hilmy.

"Your two-year contract as the IGP is short if compared to the decades of damage done to our enforcement system by the former administration under BN.

"I urge you to make full use of your term and uphold justice without fear or favour for the sake of our beloved country and generations of Malaysians to come," he said.
