IGP: Police are 'sandwiched' between two legal systems

SEREMBAN: The police are maintaining their stand and will not enforce Civil Court decisions regarding child custody disputes where one of the parents had embraced Islam, said Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.

The Inspector-General of Police said they had no other option as it was "sandwiched" between two legal systems.

When asked if the police was in contempt of court for not carrying out the orders, Khalid said he was not worried about what others said.

"I have made a stand and the police will stand by it. I can't do anything if there are people out there lambasting the police," he said.
