KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The setting up of the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) is positively accepted by the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), says Datuk Liew Vui Keong.
The Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, who is also the de facto law minister, said the views of all relevant parties, especially PDRM, were taken into account in the establishment of IPCMC.
The setting up of the commission, he said, would not only help address integrity issues in PDRM, but also ensure the welfare of security members would be better and always looked after.
“At the same time, it can clean their image since IPCMC is seen as an independent monitoring body that is more holistic compared with the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (EAIC).
"As such, the government is drafting a law by taking into account the views of all stakeholders,” he said in his written reply to a question from Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (BN-Ayer Hitam) on the status of IPCMC and of PDRM's acceptance in the Dewan Rakyat on Monday (Oct 15).
On Sept 21, a meeting of the Special Cabinet Committee on Anti-Corruption, which was chaired by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, agreed with the proposal to set up IPCMC to replace the EAIC. - Bernama
