KUALA LUMPUR: The Senior Police Officers’ Association (Gazetted Officers) has condemned the action of loan sharks who have been threatening the safety of three of its officers over the last week. 

Its chairman Asst Comm Jamaludin Khalid said although receiving death threats might be an occupational hazard for police officers, the threats reflected an “immoral act of cowardice” by the loan sharks. 

The officers were involved in battling loan-shark activities.  

So far, Federal Criminal Investigations Department (CID) director Comm Datuk Musa Hassan and Selangor CID chief SAC (II) Abu Bakar Mustafa have received a death threat letter each last week. 

A bullet was enclosed in the mail sent to Comm Musa. 

A similar letter, which was addressed to SAC Abu Bakar, was also sent to a Chinese daily on Saturday. 

Penang chief police officer DCP Datuk Othman Talib received similar threats when radio hams intercepting police communication overheard a threat to plant an explosive at his official residence in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman. 

ACP Jamaludin said history had proven that even during the communist era, policemen proved their bravery and integrity and fought for their country’s independence. 

“None of us were forced to be policemen and therefore we will always be ready to carry out our duties and responsibilities even with all these death threats from loan sharks. 

“We hold strong to our pledges and will always continue to do so,” he said.
