PUTRAJAYA:  Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has instructed the police to use all existing laws to fight serious and organised crime.

Najib said the police would have to look under existing laws on what action must and could be taken to restore public confidence.

"I am very concerned with the latest incidents, where murders using firearms occurred in a very brazen manner.

"The police must take immediate action to restore public confidence and the Government will provide whatever is necessary for them to enhance their capacity to fight serious and organised crimes," he told newsmen here Tuesday.

Najib was asked about the recent shooting incidents, including on Monday when Arab Malaysian Bank founder Hussain Ahmad Najadi was shot dead in broad daylight in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
