EAIC to probe 'police cartel' claims, PDRM to keep 'hands off' - IGP


Police will not interfere in investigations to be carried out by the Enforcement Agencies Integrity Commission (EAIC) surrounding allegations of an internal cartel

Inspector-General of Police Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said police had sent a letter to the EAIC inviting the oversight body to investigate the claims.

“We have sent a letter to the EAIC to investigate the claims. (We take a) hands off (stand).

“Let a third party come in and do a transparent investigation, because I want to explain that the PDRM has always been a member of society,” he said during a press conference at Bukit Aman.

“[...] These are claims made against the institution, so only a third party can investigate and decide.

“I believe the EAIC is an organisation with a good reputation,” he said, when asked whether police would initiate a probe against cartel claims made by former IGP Abdul Hamid Bador.

Hamid at his final press conference in March had exposed the alleged existence of an internal cartel, which included high-ranking officers, with connections to crime syndicates.

Hamid also alleged the cartel members include younger police personnel who colluded in attempts to remove him as part of a bigger plan to control the force for their personal benefits.

The revelation had sparked widespread reaction, including from among opposition politicians, Home Minister Hamzah Zainuddin, as well as the Bar Council, which called for a Royal Commission of Inquiry. - Mkini
