TOP cop Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador has revealed that there are “cartels” of young officers within the police force that want to destroy his image, reported Sinar Harian.

The Inspector-General of Police said the movement consisted of groups of young officers that were linked to the cartels and wished to dominate the police force.

“There are attempts to humiliate and topple me. I would like to advise them, please stop the outrageous act.

“(They) must realise that the police force is not ours, and not our playing field, ” he said during the SinarLive programme with the IGP on Wednesday.

The programme was moderated by seasoned journalist Tan Sri Johan Jaaffar at Kompleks Kumpulan Karangkraf.

Abdul Hamid made the remarks when asked about an internal group linked to cartels within the police force that wanted to take over so it would be easier for them to carry on their “dirty work”.

Abdul Hamid explained that he was affected by the group and hoped that they will change their ways.

“I ask them to please repent. When they reach the age of 60, I fear they have no chance to repent; when we leave, we no longer enjoy the immunity in the blue uniform.

“We will wear public attire. Nobody will be scared of us when we do not wear our uniforms. At that point, please do not regret, ” he said.

Abdul Hamid, 62, was appointed for a two-year post-retirement contract as the IGP effective from May 4,2019 until May 3 this year.
