Bukit Aman to take stern action on errant cops caught at Dang Wangi hotel party

KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman's Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS) will take stern action against a Deputy Superintendent and Inspector for attending a private party on Sunday (June 6), including terminating their employment.

Its director Comm Datuk Zamri Yahya said JIPS is also weighing what actions are to be taken against another Inspector and a rank-and-file policeman who were also among those detained following a raid at the private party held at a luxury hotel in the city.

Small amounts of drugs were also seized in the raid.

Its director Comm Datuk Zamri Yahya said two of the officers involved in the party - the Deputy Superintendent and Inspector - were habitual offenders.

"This is not their first indiscretion. We will propose to the Management Department to terminate their employment. As for the other Inspector and the policeman, we will take disciplinary action against them as it is their first offence," said Comm Zamri.

"As police officers, and personnel, they should have shown better conduct," he said during an interview with The Star on Thursday (June 10).

Comm Zamri said JIPS will continue to take action against the bad apples within the force.

"Our actions are ongoing and those who are involved in wrongdoings will be dealt with," he said.

The three police officers and the rank-and-file policeman were among 32 people detained by Dang Wangi police following the raid on Sunday.

Meanwhile on a police officer who was remanded for allegedly raping a single mother in a room at Kota Baru police headquarters, Comm Zamri said the officer will be suspended once he is charged in court.

"I am deeply upset as wrongdoings and offences committed by police personnel and officers keep happening despite all directives given. He will be suspended once he is charged. If he is convicted, we will terminate his employment," he added.
