Those unhappy with police investigations can complain to police media centre
KUALA LUMPUR, May 24 – Police are advising parties who are dissatisfied with investigation reports against the force to submit their complaints to the Federal Police’s (Bukit Aman) Police Public Relations Centre.
Inspector-General of Police Secretariat (Public Relations) assistant head ACP Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf said whether they were political parties or non-governmental organisations (NGO), they could submit their complaints to the media centre without having to meet the police’s highest leadership.
“To meet the police’s top leadership, there is an appointment process which requires prior agreement between the two parties apart from complying with professional policing ethics. The parties cannot just meet up without an appointment,” he said.
He was commenting on the action by a group of Parti Pakatan Rakyat (PKR) supporters led by the Member of Parliament for Teluk Intan, M. Manoharan, who insisted on handing over a memorandum to the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar at noon at the Bukit Aman here today.
The memorandum sought to dispute police’s investigation on a fracas between Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) supporters and MIC members in front of Bangunan Putra Perdana, Putrajaya on May 2.
Ramli said as the PKR group came without an appointment and wished to submit a memorandum, only the media centre could receive it but the PKR group insisted on handing it over to the IGP himself.
“We also offered to Manoharan to meet Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Mohmad Salleh to submit the memorandum as the case in Putrajaya was under investigation by the police contingent concerned. But they refused,” he said, adding that the PKR group finally handed over the memorandum to him. – Bernama
