Enforcement agency records statements from several individuals over police cartel issue

KUALA LUMPUR: The Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (SIAP) has recorded statements from several individuals over the police cartel issue.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin(pic) said the police had previously conducted an internal investigation on the matter and claimed no existence of such a cartel.

"I was not satisfied with this, so I ordered SIAP to investigate the matter.

"Several individuals were called up to have their statements recorded.

"They will make a decision and brief me once their investigations are completed," he told reporters after launching a meeting between the Home Ministry and security services industry players on Thursday (Nov 25).

He said his Ministry would make an announcement once the investigation is completed.

On March 23, out-going Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador claimed that there was a "cartel" within the police force plotting to tarnish his image and topple him.

Abdul Hamid also claimed that Hamzah was trying to influence promotions in the police service.

In May, Abdul Hamid was replaced by Acryl Sani, who said the matter was being probed by the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (EAIC).

More recently, twitter account Edisi Siasat had also made serious allegations involving high-ranking enforcement agency officials.

On Nov 8, Acryl Sani said that most claims made by Edisi Siasat were sensationalised and 13 investigation papers have been opened against the Twitter account.
