Anwar Urges to Prove Crime Syndicates Involving Police Officers


SHAH ALAM, July 29: PKR is urging for a detailed investigation to be carried out on the alleged involvement of members of the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) in criminal syndicates and illegal activities, stressed PKR De Facto Leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The following call was made due to the shooting and attempted murder of the MyWatch Crime Monitoring Body Chairman, R. Sri Sanjeevan two days ago; several hours after he uploaded his writing on his Twitter account that he received death threats believed to come from police officers.

Not rejecting such attempts with the desire of Sanjeevan to reveal the involvement of police officers in illegal syndicates and activities, Anwar, who is also the Opposition Leader, urged for tighter security for Sanjevan who is now being treated at the hospital.

“Keadilan also welcomed the swift actions of the Inspector General (IGP), Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, who promised to conduct a thorough investigation on the case.

“Keadilan demands for Sanjeevan’s exposure regarding the involvement of police officers and members of the PDRM with criminal syndicates and illegal activities to also be investigated to bring those involved to justice,” said the Permatang Pauh Member of Parliament in a press statement.

Meanwhile, PKR Strategic Director, Rafizi Ramli also claimed that he met Sanjeevan a day before the shooting, and Sanjeevan asked for help to disclose the names of police officers allegedly involved in drug syndicates.

However, the Pandan Member of Parliament said that he was not sure is the plan to reveal the names is linked to the murder attempt on Sanjeevan.

Sanjeevan was in the spotlight late last year when he appeared with the former IGP, Tan Sri Musa Hassan in a press conference to reveal that there were high-ranking police officers involved in criminal syndicates.

Yesterday, in a statement, Musa said that there is a possibility that Sanjeevan was attacked following his previous disclosure regarding the involvement of members of the PDRM in criminal syndicates.

Sanjeevan had previously received threats in April when he was attacked by four men armed with machetes at the basement of a hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

A few weeks ago, he allegedly was followed by several suspicious men at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) in Sepang.

Two days ago, when he stopped at a junction in Jempol, he was allegedly shot at close range by a pillion rider on a motorcycle causing injury to the right side of his chest.

He is now reportedly stable but was in a critical condition after undergoing surgery at the Kuala Pilah Hospital.
