Powerless Special Panel into Aminulrasyid’s police killing neither fish nor fowl even with Tun Hanif as member – Cabinet tomorrow should end “guerrilla” responses and take holistic decision on Tun Hanif RCI on all police shooting deaths since 2005

The Home Ministry is under great pressure. Because I have proposed a Tun Haniff Royal Commission of Inquiry into the police killing of 14-year-old Form III student Aminulrasyid Amzah in Shah Alam at 2 am the previous Monday, it has been announced that the former Inspector-General of Police Tun Hanif Omar has been roped in as a member of the Special Panel on Aminulrasyid’s death headed by Deputy Home Minister Datuk Abu Seman Yusup.

This is typical “guerrilla warfare” operation, making decisions on the run without an overall strategy.

The powerless Special Panel into Aminulrasyid’s police killing is neither fish nor fowl even with Tun Haniff as member, as well as other members including former Suhakam commissioner Denison Jayasooria, crime analyst Kamal Affendi Hashim, lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (Asli) chief executive officer Dr Michael Yeoh and UiTM deputy vice-chancellor Prof Abdul Halim Sidek.

The “guerrilla” response of the Home Ministry could be seen from the “on the run” chop-and-change as to what the Special Panel can and cannot do.

At first, Abu Seman said the Special Panel can neither inquire on its own nor make recommendations to the police.

After furious public criticism, Abu Seman now says that the Special Panel into Aminul’s death is empowered to call up witnesses and to review the procedures involving the discharge of firearms.

Abu Seman had said that politicians would not be appointed to the Special Panel on the ground that they would have “special interests”. As Abu Seman is himself a politician, would he step down and hand over the chairmanship to Tun Hanif?

Abu Seman now claims that the Special Panel is “powerful” because it is empowered to scrutinise the investigation papers at any time without needing the approval of the police or Attorney-General’s Chambers.

Where did Abu Seman get such powers? How did a powerless Special Panel become a “powerful” panel overnight? On what basis are the powers of this Special Panel derived from, when the Cabinet had not met on the matter?

There is profound confusion as to the actual powers and terms of reference of the Special Panel which is neither fish nor fowl even with Tun Hanif as a member

The Cabinet tomorrow should boldly and decisively put an end to such “guerrilla” responses to the police killing of Aminulrasyid, as the repercussions have reached far and wide as to affect public confidence in the independence, efficiency and professionalism of the police force.

The Cabinet should end the “guerrilla” responses to Aminulrasyid’s killing and take a holistic decision to establish a Tun Hanif Royal Commission of Inquiry on Aminul’s killing as well as into all police shooting deaths since 2005.

Will the Cabinet Ministers fail Malaysians once again?

    I have no expectation on our current Cabinet Manisters. The outcome is always predictable.

    The question is why is the entire UMNO machinery so reluctant to move on a few screw-up policemen? Why so difficult to move on a few low-ranking officer when they can spent so much effort and time to put on a farce?

    Also, Musa screwing up is not the first time. He has screwed up a number of time, why still the reluctance to move against, not him, but his wishes. Why such impotence, such incestous dsyfunctional relationship between the executive and the police?

    I mean they can move on Samy Vellu and Palanivel, they can’t move on Musa?

    The only answer remain that Musa and the police have Najib by the balls. Any significant shakedown and his dirty secrets will be out at a time he can’t afford it.

    Let us not kid ourselves what this is about. The result of the investigation don’t matter. The way they are going about it already confirms that the stains of wrongs against the 15-yr old is all over UMNO politician hands all the way up to the PM…

    Will the Cabinet Ministers fail Malaysians once again?.. Kit

    Yes, it will.
    Didn’t PDRM arm-twist the government into discarding the IPCMC?

    This government fears PDRM. It cannot dictate terms to the IGP?
    The government is the mouse, PDRM the cat?

    I am afraid Aminul be another statistic, just like Kugan, Beng Hock and others.

    uncle Kit,

    unfortunately you are not the Deputy PM Cum Home Affair minister , at least not yet but you can learn from now from who else Anwar and Zaid…

  5. #5 by monsterball on Tuesday, 4 May 2010 - 5:37 pm

    Welcome back….Chengho.
    eerrrr….everyone learn till the day he/she dies.
    But IGP never learn. He is too smart and need not learn anymore.
    He said….published in papers today…that when police do something good…get no praise from the public..but when something wrong….always complaint.
    Go read that..in S.Times.
    This clearly shows..our IGP does not know…where his salary came from. We pay police to do good jobs…and we do not need to praise the police for hat he is paid to do.
    Do you mean a clerk…chauffer…must be praised for performing their responsibilities?
    Our IGP…is ridiculous childish or he does not know…where his income came from?
    The mentality and attitude of so many government servants are far below average…yet so many are holding high posts….just because they are faithful to UMNO B and Najib.

    Praise the police like the way we pat a dog for having bahaved properly?

    Its a job sucker! And he gets paid for doing it idiot!

    Who cares about the outcome! The Raja Di Polis Malaysia has so many dark secrets they can grab any BN’s balls and nail it to the wall. There’s no end in sight, a few more will have to be sacrificed until the day we change the government. Who’ll be next?

    Don’t worry, the day will come when people decide to take the law into their own hand …. watch the CI plunge, be prepared for the ringgit to become banana money, and get ready to run for your life.

    I foresee BIG problems ahead, and I predict bodohland will become Zimbabwee much earlier than expected.

  11. #11 by monsterball on Wednesday, 5 May 2010 - 2:28 am

    hi Johnnypok….Have some faith in our mighty People Power..
    Firstly….Malaysians will not run away like cowards. You plan t run..go ahead.
    All your regular negative comments ….indirectly saying UMNO B and Najib…will win…we toe the line or else?
    Think before you talk cock and bull again.
    You message do not encourage young Malaysians to stay put and fight for their rights….and that bothers me….which side you are on.

  12. #12 by johnnypok on Wednesday, 5 May 2010 - 2:36 am

    Malaya will collapse and become a colony of Indon, and all the non-ketuanan will either have to take refuge in Sabah or Sarawak (provided they are welcome), or else they will have to settle to become slaves and taxi-drivers, maybe. When the balls finally explode, that is the end. I predict the end is near … say good-bye to the good old days.

    Malaysia is governed by one man, he is IGP Musa.

    Najib and Rosmah afraid of him. The parliament cannot do anything to remove him.

    The King is him. Musa Hassan.

  14. #14 by monsterball on Wednesday, 5 May 2010 - 7:20 am

    Johnnypok cannot be a Malaysians or is an idiot living in fools dream…addressing Malaysia as Malaya.
    A person so backward….is a nut..or a young alien fut…talking cock all the time.

  15. #15 by monsterball on Wednesday, 5 May 2010 - 7:26 am

    Musa Hassan is the King of balls carrying Najib.
    And the self appointed King….Najib needs Rosmah help and advise.
    Get your facts right….c730427.
    Is that your prisoner number?

    Or maybe a cop #?

    Khir Toyo has been very quiet and now suddenly he is opening his mouth over this..

    Khir Toyo is charging PR is making this thing political. The family of course don’t want it to be.

    The truth is these deaths ARE POLITICAL. It was political the day Mahathir decided he could screw up key institutions in this country especially the police. The trail of Amirul’s blood leads ultimately to Mahathir’s hand.

    Justice for Amirul is unavoidable political and Amirul will not get his full justice, the same as Kugan, Teoh Beng Hock and many others until BN politicians pay the price for it.

    When police stop my car last nite, they found my roadtax is already dead..they give me 3 brilliant option..1. Take the slip, go to the court and judged by corrupted judge 2. Bribe him 3. Let him put a bullet in my skull…option no. 3 he said, is a special offer as this is last 2 years of hunting season, before it ended when next GE arrive..

    It is all so ovious isnt it.

    Hisapuddin is hiding in Geneva, and Jibby whose balls are held tightly by PDRM and Musa is ultra queit. This country is paralysed. Both PM and Home Minister do not want to upset Musa for obvious reasons. Musa has a lot to tell and some pretty thick files and DVDs on Sodomy 1 and Altantunya. He falls. So will Hisapuddin, Jibby and UMNO.

    God is challenging UMNO today. Let’s see who wins.

    The real problem was most of the PDRM suffered from inferior complex, thus when they are given the power they will abused it to suppress this psychological disorder.

    eg. When to shoot pass a patrol car immediate reaction from PDRM WAS that the one who shot pass them has make a challenge to their authority, and immediately they feel threaten and want to exact their power and the worst is they have the gun. and they want to show their power.

    It was very unfortunate that when these people was confront with bad guys who are armed they kecut off and slow down and they will not give chase.

    How on earth they can not differentiate those on the run are armed or other wise? They know they are not armed and thus give chase to show their power. Worst they just shot knowing that every thing will be fine just like kogan’s case all will be fine.

    Send those who shot for a psychological check up, am sure many will fail the test.

    INFERIOR COMPLEX and lack of control and discipline was the root cause, if not check am sure this will not be the last.

  21. #21 by SENGLANG on Wednesday, 5 May 2010 - 11:06 am

    Take a look at many patrol cars who parked a road side illegally near the mamak stall. The simple act by parking at the non parking ares by these pdrm member shown that they want to shown their power . an act of inferior complex

  22. #22 by Motorist on Wednesday, 5 May 2010 - 11:06 am

    Typical UMNO mentality. Unilateral decision without any thought process going into it. Talk cock & bullshit to lie their way out. Lastly, any so called recommendations will be ignored. Another waste of time, money & effort.

  23. #23 by kpt99 on Wednesday, 5 May 2010 - 11:08 am

    It’s difficult to describe the lebih kurang and tak apa attitude of these prople. Just a waste of time

    Why the Police Shooting Guideline should be “internal and confidential”?
    Why the Home Ministry plays ping-pong with the IGP on such guidelines? Who is the BOSS?

    How many times the Government Departments are flip-flopping on such kind of Documents which should mean to be for the Public!!

    Can any MP ask for one?
    Has any rule governing the “publicity” of such documents?

    Laughing Stock of the Malaysian Government with the People’s TEARS & BLOOD!!

    Just like Judges in Shah Alam High Court to say that it is none of their business to see Lawyers not attending to clients. to see lawyer assaulting clients, to see lawyers not attending court for years after all these!!

    “King in his new Robe”!! Repeating!!….Repeating…………………
    Do you hear Cheers?
    It is TEARS!!
