Five appointed to IPCC


PUTRAJAYA: Five new appointees have been named into the seven-member Independent Police Conduct Commission (IPCC), says Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.

The former director-general of the Prime Minister’s Department’s Implementation Coordination Unit, Datuk Zolkopli Dahalan, had been appointed as the new IPCC chairman, he said.

As for the IPCC deputy chairman, he said that former Prime Minister’s Department advisory board chairman Datuk Mohamad Jazamuddin Ahmad Nawawi had been given the role.

He also said former National Audit Department’s financial sector director Martina@Kartina Zamhari was now a member of the IPCC.

Other appointees into the IPCC, said Saifuddin Nasution, were former police’s logistics and technology department deputy director (operations/technical) Datuk Shukri Abdullah and also former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission special operations division senior director Datuk Tan Kang Sai.

As for the remaining two members, he said it would be filled when the time comes.

Saifuddin Nasution said the IPCC would act as an independent body to monitor the integrity of the police force and probe complaints of misconduct.

“The IPCC Act also places the role of the IPCC as a mandatory referral that obliges the police to refer cases involving sexual crimes, or deaths in custody (to the commission),” he told a press conference at the Home Ministry yesterday.

The IPCC Bill was passed in Parliament last year, replacing the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission Bill tabled in 2019 by the previous government.
