IGP urges MACC to probe alleged corruption among ‘political frogs’

KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador has urged the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate elements of alleged corruption among "political frogs".

The Inspector-General of Police said such occurrences were allegedly rampant in politics.

"I combat corruption in the police force but I see elements of corruption everywhere in politics.

"(Leaders) who are power crazy and ready to buy others and threaten them (if they refused to be bought). That is corruption," he told his last press conference in Bukit Aman on Friday (April 30).

The IGP urged the MACC to take action.

"The people are sick of ‘frogs’ jumping here and there," he said.

He also hoped alleged corruption in politics could be curbed as he is worried about the state of the police force.

"What is clear is (if political corruption is not curbed), police will be used to achieve political aspirations," he added.
