Police to step up law enforcement to combat serious crime - Sin Chew Jit Poh

PETALING JAYA, July 30 (Bernama) -- Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar has given assurance that the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) will increase law enforcement to combat serious crime, including firearm-related murders.

He said it was hoped that the move would restore public confidence that the country was safe and peaceful.

"We (police) understand the current main concern of the people. As the IGP, I promise that I will do anything to increase public confidence in public safety and national security," he told a press conference after launching Op Selamat series 3/2013 at a shopping mall here today.

He said this in response to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's concern over a spate of killings using firearms lately.

Najib was reported as saying that the incidents would affect public confidence and increase fear with regard to security and serious crime.

Najib said police must take immediate action to regain public confidence following the developments involving security lately.

Khalid said the PDRM would increase its intelligence capability, especially involving firearm-related crimes.

"We have also learned that among the victims in shooting cases are ex-criminal convicts and those involved in criminal activities," he said.

As such, he also hoped that the proposed law to replace the Emergency Ordinance 1969 would be tabled at the Parliament soon.

On the case of Arab Malaysian Bank founder Hussain Ahmad Najadi, who was shot dead yesterday, Khalid said police had several leads and the suspect had been identified.

On anti-crime activist R.Sri Sanjeevan's allegation on Twitter that a cop had ordered for him to be shot at, Khalid said Sri Sanjeevan should produce some evidence to support his allegation to enable investigation to be carried out.

"He never gave us any evidence. If he feels like giving the evidence to other agency, in which he has more faith, like the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, he is free to do so, we have no problem with that," he added.
