IGP welcomes MACC action against corrupt cops


KUALA KUBU BARU: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's action against corrupt cops is welcomed, says the Inspector General of Police.

Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador said action was being taken in phases against any personnel guilty of misconduct by the Integrity and Compliance of Standards Department (JIPS).

"We have also receive anonymous tip-offs on misconduct and abuse of power.

"JIPS is helmed by Datuk Zamri Yahya, who has gone to the ground to remind and warn those involved," he told reporters after closing the National Cadet Police Camping event at Kuala Kubu Baru on Saturday (July 20).

Abdul Hamid said he was saddened but had to come to terms with the fact that some of his men were still stubborn in their ways.

It was recently reported that four personnel from the Hulu Selangor Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department were detained during an operation by the JIPS over allegations of bribery.

The MACC also recently arrested six police personnel at the same police district on Wednesday (July 17) for allegedly demanding bribes to release illegal immigrants about to be sent to the Detention Depot.
