Investigate Musa’s Statement on Third Party Interference

Posted: 08 Sep 2010 12:54 AM PDT

Sometimes cozy relationships could end up in absolute bitterness. It’s the same with the country’s top cop who has been giving snide and ambiguous remarks about third party interference into the working mechanism of the force.

Musa Hassan has named the Home Ministry as one of the “third parties” causing excessive interference in the police force.

“All kinds of people interfere. People from the ministry itself, outsiders and people with vested interests who want to do things that are not right,” he was reported to have said.

Musa also reminded his officers and men to remain undeterred despite “pressure from above and outside” and not act as “yes men”.

I am not surprised at Musa bitterness as it clearly comes from a man who is on the verge of losing his powers after the Hari Raya weekend. His attacks on government ministries and thinly-veiled hint on the Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein does not reflect his integrity or honesty.

If Musa is serious about cleaning-up the police force he should be forthright and make a complaint to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) especially if it involves corruption and framing people as part of political power play.

Taking pot shots at his bosom buddies-turned enemies before retirement shows that Musa has no real concern for the police force or the nation.

The police chief’s track record in itself has been murky.

And his four-year tenure can be best caricatured by the use of excessive force and baton-wielding anti-riot police to break peaceful demonstrations and candle light vigils, an increase in lock-up deaths and gross abuse of power by police officers.

In short Musa has illustrated that the force has no hesitance in going to the mat for the ruling government.

So maybe Musa could try and do the right thing before he retires by giving detailed information of interference by those from the higher-ups and lodge an official complaint to allow for police investigations.

For now, personalized attacks from Musa has only served to raise a few eyebrows and take a further whack on his dodgy reputation.
