MALAYSIANS Against Rape, Assault and Snatch Theft (Marah) is alarmed to read that the PDRM lost assets worth RM1.33mil between 2010 and 2012 as revealed by the Auditor-General’s 2012 report.

Marah is in agreement with the report’s finding that the PDRM’s management of missing assets is unsatisfactory.

Details on how the police lost 44 firearms from its inventory and the type of firearms were not given.

The armoury’s SOP strictly requires maintaining a log of arms movement details. Has any disciplinary action been taken against the responsible parties?

Marah has always been supportive of PDRM’s efforts to combat crime.

We urge Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar to rectify weaknesses in the management.

The police must carry out spot inspections of their assets so that problems can be identified and rectified.

Records in Bukit Aman and state police contingents on missing assets and the status of investigations need to be coordinated and updated regularly.

Strict disciplinary action must be taken against the errant officers or personnel involved in losses.
