KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Commission reviewing police performance has heard a detailed briefing from the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA), including complaints of alleged corruption involving the police’s top brass and its personnel.
Chairman Tun Mohamed Dzaiddin Abdullah said the commission was given a very clear picture of the situation in the police force.
“The briefing by the ACA included statistics and was a very comprehensive presentation.
“The same must be said about the Public Complaints Bureau that also gave us a detailed presentation about the allegations against the police force.
“We would like to hear from more individuals and will be making the commission more accessible to the public by going round the country and hearing from all quarters.
“In fact the commission will be divided into three teams which will look into various aspects, including work ethics, organisational structure, manpower, human rights and corruption,” he said after hearing submissions and presentations from individuals and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) at its first public hearing at the Putra World Trade Centre.
Dzaiddin said the commission would definitely look into all memorandums and allegations and would make the necessary recommendations to the Government.
Among the NGOs were the Police Watch and Human Rights Committee and the Coalition of Malaysian NGO’s for an accountable Police Force.
