Ahmad Zahid: Don't belittle police's crime-fighting efforts

BAGAN DATOH: Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi chastised those who belittled police efforts to fight crime because of few media statements highlighting successes.

He said the police had been relentless in their efforts to cripple gambling and drug syndicates, triads and militants through various operations.

 "Just because there are less media statements, it is no indication that our operations have stopped.

 "(In reality) We are getting information from ongoing raids to take (the necessary) action and we will inform the public on the success of our operations, from time to time.

 "Thus, allegations hurled against the police, including the inspector-general of police, that their operations (against crime syndicates) are short-lived, are totally uncalled for," he told reporters after launching the Tadarus Al-Quran Perdana Programme here.

Ahmad Zahid also reminded some non-governmental organisations (NGO) not to make allegations that the police compromised when taking action against certain parties.

 "If they accuse our police personnel of abetting with gambling syndicates, then show us the proof.

 "We will not hesitate to take disciplinary and legal action against the errant personnel," he said.

On militant groups, he said:  "No one will be spared, whether they are training, trained or received training abroad," he said. - Bernama.
