Cops refute alleged slander of traffic cop for not wearing face mask on duty

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have refuted a slander attempt on a traffic policeman, who was photographed supposedly not wearing a face mask while on duty.

Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief Asst Comm Zulkefly Yahya said the incident occurred on Wednesday (April 28) at Jalan Tuanku Abd Rahman.

"Traffic policemen were on duty to facilitate traffic in the area from 1pm to 7pm.

"At 8pm, the policeman broke fast with five other colleagues at a booth near Sogo shopping mall.

"After breaking fast, the policeman headed towards his motorcycle to resume his duty. We believe the photo was taken before he could wear his face mask and helmet to resume his duties at the area," he said when contacted on Friday (April 30).

A police report has been lodged by the policeman involved, as the viral photo was an attempt to damage his reputation, he added.

ACP Zulkefly urged those with inquiries or information to contact Tun H. S. Lee police station at 03-20719999, or KL police hotline at 03-21158999 or any nearest police station.
