Support police chief with concrete action to clean up the force

Former police chief Hamid Bador made a bold allegation - THE STAR

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

Inspector General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador’s revelation about an alleged ‘cartel’ operating within the police has reinforced the need for reforms to the force, as various groups have called for.

It is also disturbing to learn of alleged attempts to topple Hamid by officers whose underground activities have been called out.

Corruption in the force, which the police chief claims is prevalent, has the effect of undermining justice, if officers are blinded by material gain to overlook wrongdoings.

Malaysians should rally around Hamid, who wants to clean up the police force before his retirement.

Various groups and individuals have called for decisive action to be taken, such as lodging a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, restoring the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Bill (to replace the watered-down Independent Police Conduct Commission Bill tabled last year) and the setting up of a royal commission of inquiry.

Hamid himself would prefer that the matter be resolved internally, but this would be difficult, if not impossible.

Given the immense gravity of this matter, Aliran calls on the government to heed the calls from the public, especially the call to set up an independent royal commission of inquiry.

Why is Hamid revealing the existence of the cartel even as he clears out his office?
He and Aliran , should be aware how matters plod on especially if it is not beneficial to the government.
No, I am but a lone voice but I will not add it to the chorus of voices that action be taken.
Hamid will ride off to the sunset in early May, then it shall be business as usual – be there a cartel or otherwise!!
