DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw hopes that the new IGP Tan Sri Ismail Omar will truly raise the integrity of the police, making it more effective in combatting crimes, illegal immigration and drugs.
Dr Tan notes the announcement yesterday of the Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein that on 13.9.2010, Tan Sri Ismail Omar will take over from Tan Sri Musa Hassan as the Inspector-General of Police (IGP).
Tan Sri Ismail has vowed to improve the police force and take it to greater heights. We wish him well. The public have expectations from him.
In our multiracial and multireligious country, the IGP must show truly that he is fair in discharging his duties. This is very important.
For example, it is easy to incite racial and religious hatred. Anybody who infringes on mosque, churches and temples should be dealt with firmly. Those mouthing racial insults should be sought out.
Other issues such as crimes, illegal immigrants and drugs loom large. The number of legal immigrants is about two million and that of illegal ones is unknown, probably three to four milliion. Some say that agencies that deal with immigrants including police are hand in glove with syndicates. The new IGP should investigate and take action.
We wish Tan Sri Ismail can do something concrete for the police.
Dr Tan Seng Giaw
