IGP Should be hauled before the Chief Secretary’s Special Committee


SHAH ALAM, 9 Oct: The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, should be hauled before the Chief Secretary’s Special Committee regarding the Auditor-General’s Report 2012 to explain about the loss of firearms and police assets instead of being made a member of the committee.

DAP Parliamentary Chief, Lim Kit Siang said, this matter is important because the Auditor-General, Tan Sri Ambrin Buang, denies that the police has given an explanation to the Audit Department about the loss of 44 firearms and other police assets.

“Ambrin refuted reports quoting the Home Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi that the Ministry had submitted a report to the Auditor-General on the missing police items but this explanation was not included in the 2012 Auditor-General’s Report.

“For this reason, the Inspector-General of Police should be hauled before the Special Committee to give a full and satisfactory explanation for the RM1.33 million worth of police assets which included 44 firearms, 29 vehicles, 156 handcuffs, 26 walkie-talkies, 22 radios and other equipment especially after his earlier dismissive and ludicrous response that the missing guns could have “fallen into the sea”!”

Kit Siang said, it is rather disturbing that there are no signs that the PAC proposes to haul up the IGP to account for the loss of the RM1.33 million worth of police assets, particularly 44 firearms, 156 handcuffs and 29 vehicles.

“Conspicuously absent from the immediate menu of PAC investigations is the loss of RM1.33 million worth of police assets.

“Which is completely against public expectations which would want this item to top the PAC’s priority list of investigations,” he said.
