Motion to sack IGP likely to fail

DAP Member of Parliament (MP) for Beruas, Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham, wants to move a motion in Parliament to sack Inspector General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Musa Hassan.

He is, however, unlikely to succeed.

The Perak DAP chief said he has listed down 14 offences committed by the police in his motion including the arbitrary arrests of politicians, activists, and members of the public during the Perak political crisis.

"I am totally disgusted and disappointed that the BN (Barisan Nasional) government especially the Home Minister, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein Onn, has failed to take any action against the police for numerous offences they have committed against the law…," said Ngeh in a statement.

He said the police's actions have violated constitutionally-guaranteed fundamental liberties.

He added that if no action was taken, the public's respect for and confidence in the police force would continue to deteriorate.
