Give cops time to probe high-profile cases thoroughly, says PM

PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has ordered the police to conduct thorough investigations of high-profile cases such as the murder of six-year-old autistic boy Zayn Rayyan Abdul Matiin and the acid attack on footballer Faisal Halim.

This is to avoid any misperception by the public, the Prime Minister said.

"I am the Prime Minister but I am also human. I also want to know why such things happened, and how some have the heart to abuse and murder a child.

"If it was totally up to me, I would want the police to (have answers) tomorrow, but (the investigations) must go through due process," he said in his speech at the Madani Aspiration Gathering at Putrajaya International Convention Center (PICC) here on Friday (June 14).

"I understand that the people are also upset.

"So, I have told the police to expedite their investigations but conduct them properly, to avoid any wrong perception.

"Some out there may feel that this person or that person is guilty ... they have already made their assumptions about (that)," he added.
