KUALA LUMPUR: The Independent Police Conduct Commission (IPCC) Bill will be tabled in Dewan Rakyat on Aug 26, says Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin.

"I will be tabling the IPCC Bill during this meeting.

"The Bill will replace the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) Bill," Hamzah said at a press conference in Parliament on Monday (Aug 10).

He said the IPCC Bill would come under the Home Ministry's purview unlike the previous IPCMC Bill which was mooted by the then Law Minister Datuk Liew Vui Keong.

The IPCMC was tabled for its first reading by the then Pakatan Harapan government on July 18 last year.

The then-Opposition bloc consisting of Barisan Nasional, PAS and Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), indicated that they would not support the IPCMC Bill.

Following this, the IPCMC Bill was subsequently referred to a special select committee after the second reading on Oct 7 last year to allow for improvements on the proposed law.

The IPCMC was to pave way for the setting up of an independent commission to monitor the integrity of the police force and probe complaints of misconduct involving police personnel.
