Question for first day of Parliament on Oct. 11 – why police inaction over spate of police reports for past five years against lawyer brothers suspected of killers in mass murders of Sosilawati and three others

My first question for the first day of the 34-sitting 2011 budget meeting of Parliament beginning on Oct. 11 will be in connection with the gruesome and heinous mass murders of cosmetic millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others in Banting on National Day.

The question directed at the Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein is asking for the list of the “dates/nature of police reports lodged against the lawyer brothers in Banting suspected responsible for the Sosilawati mass murders, reasons for police inaction which have gravely undermined public confidence in police professionalism and latest actions on these police reports”.

The new Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar has publicly admitted that Sosilawati’s case could have been prevented if fast action, including proper investigation, had been conducted over earlier reports of missing persons.

He said a task force had been formed to investigate all missing persons reports linked to the lawyer brothers, adding:

“There should be no more slacking. Those caught slacking or ignoring missing persons reports will be severely reprimanded.”

This is clearly not good enough as Sosilawati and the three others would most probably be still alive if the police had been efficient and professional in handling all police reports which had been made against the lawyer brothers in the past five years.

I join the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak in congratulating the police for their efficiency in solving the mass murders of Sosilawati and three others, as the police have claimed that the mass murders have been solved.

Malaysians regardless of race, religion or political affiliation demands speedy justice to be meted out to the mass murderers who should not expect any mercy for their horrific crimes.

With the police halting evidence gathering at the farm in Ladang Gadong where the murders allegedly took place and Sungai Panchau where their bodies were believed to have been burnt and dumped, the time has come for the authorities to address the other public concern arising from the mass murders of Sosilawati and the three others.

This is the shocking police inaction over numerous police reports lodged against the two lawyer brothers linked to the Sosilawati mass murders going as far back as 2005, involving fraud, criminal breach of trust, missing persons and murder, and the public concern that Sosilawati and the three other victims would still be alive today if the police had acted efficiently and professionally on these police reports.

There can be no denial that the efficiency of the police action in solving the Sosilawati mass murders cannot undo the grave damage to the country’s investment climate caused by adverse national and international media reports of how serious and rampant crimes had been allowed to go unchecked – with foreign media reports speculating that up to 20 people both local and foreign could have been killed and their bodies dumped into a river based on 300 bone fragments recovered in Sungai Panchau.

The Banting mass murders and its various implications should be on the Cabinet agenda tomorrow.

As an internal police investigation is completely inadequate, unsatisfactory and unacceptable to restore both public and investor confidence, I call for the establishment of a Royal Commission of Inquiry to establish why no action had been taken on earlier police reports dating as far back as 2005 against the lawyer brothers linked to the mass murders of Sosilawati and three others.

    The Sosilawati mass murder case has given rise to so many questions for which the Malaysian public is getting impatient to get answers. It warrants for a RCI to be set up to get to the bottom of the matter, to ensure there is no cover-up of police involvement or incompetence of PDRM that allowed the babaric killings to happen.

    Ex-IGP, Musa Hassan’s assistance is needed to help PDRM in their investigations.

    Hitler was seen kicking himself in hell. “Oh why I so dummkopf? Should had burnt the bodies of those 6 million jews in Ladang Gadong and then dump their bones into the Sungai Panchau. Then nobody could accuse me of the holocaust!”

    I maintain that problems will exist as long as the government does not implement the IPCMC.
    Having another RCI will be another waste of time unless there is a change of government.

    Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…

    Former IGP and his police force were either running around in circles or…..

    catching opposition politicians like DAP, PKR etc..

    Where got time to think about let alone catch criminals!

    PDRM is a law unto itself. It’s untouchable and can do anything it wishes with impunity in return for protecting UMNO/BN interests.
    Who dare make a report against a police officer and hope to win? He might find himself arrested and even beaten up and charged for “hindering a police officer from carrying out his duties”.
    Even to raise your voice against a cop will land you in trouble.

    Nearly or almost every enforcement agency are corrupted to core.
    That’s why!!!
    Whenever no VIP lives are at stake, these mata mata, “one eye open and one eye close”.
    Just look at all the cases where the victims are ordinary people.
    Not much cases solved even if there’re sufficient evidence but for Solsilawati case, really speedy, man!
    Remember the Mona Affendi case?
    Very fast solved too!
    As for chinese boy who was drowned in his uncle home.
    What happened???
    Not to mention about Altantunya, Teoh Beng Hock and the rest.
    All lies in the corrupted government where mostly everyone is related, big to small!

    That Royal Commission of Inquiry will certainly look not the following:

    Who have made police reports since 2005? Among them has any one became a victim subsequently. That could establish whether the two lawyers have moles in police establishment.

    Has there ever been any investigation? If so, what were the results? Was it because the police were convinced that those reports were baseless, and hence subsequent reports were ignored?

    Was it because the two lawyer brothers were members of the ruling party and thus police had to be lenient to them. For example Zambry was free to distribute unlicensed video without being charged but DAP member was liable to be charged.

    Does not everybody know that selective investigation, selective interrogation, selective detention and selective prosecution are a norm in Bolehland??

    The former PIG was only interested in carrying mattress … where got time left to do other things.

    Corrupted Banting police involved in cover-up from the days of the Ah Long father who has no law degree till the Ah Long’s sons who have Australian law degrees…would by now been transferred or told to go on leave/hiding to protect the “force” and the new IGP’s “good” name…….

    Sosilawati and co would have been alive…it was a joint operation in Banting….Hishamuddin better have the answers….if he doesnt ….am sure all these Australian lawyer murderers heading for the gallows are going out to spill it out in court anyway….

    Missing persons report made. And wasnt it the police procedure to start their investigation by interviewing the last person whom the missing person was in contact with? In fact that last person would in most cases be the prime suspect. Maybe the killer lawyers were able to cook up some convincing reasons to dispel the police suspicion the first time. But with the second and subsequent missing persons report all linking to them as the last person-in-contact wouldnt all alarm bells in the banting police station be ringing?

    This heap of umno rubbish has surely piled itself mountain-high. And hey whats that greater kl plan thingy? I am concerned. Why dont they just finish up all the currently abandoned projects like plaza rakyat? And will the puduraya upgrading project turn into another never-ending project?

    That is a REAL double standard!…As ususal, LKS appears to forget or intentionally ignore the vital facts:-
    – Surau in Seremban splashed with red paint
    – Namewee’s videos which contain racial slurs

    Just because you get RM200 for every posting on this blog from UMNO doesn’t mean you have to post the same comment on various threads. What has race got to do with this matter ? Or is this a case of “siapa yang makan chili dia lah yang merasa pedas” ?

  15. #15 by dagen on Wednesday, 22 September 2010 - 2:34 pm

    Hah cintanegara, good to know you are here. BTW kassim has taken a few of your rambutans.

    And oh yes namewee and those idiots who splashed red paint in seremban and those other idiots who asked chinese to go back to china and described indians as dogs and and not forgetting ibrahim bin perkasa and dr mamak, yes jail them all. How about dat, huh? Put them in one common cell. See what they do to each other.

    Should only murder cases be questioned rather than the Police and AG are not following the Code of Practice?

    Under the CPC, the Police has to provide an Investigation Report within a time frame. And, the AG should be the one overseeing that it is to be done!!

    How many criminal cases had slipped the hand of the AG is another serious question?

    If DAP or PR really want to press, they should open for Complaints by those making Police Report but receiving no news or actions from the Police or AG!!

    The lawyer cheating and assaulting clients in Penang was silent since 3rd of 2008 despites of numerouse reminders to the Police/KUP/AG. There were promises from Dato’ Mohd Yusof Hj. Zainal Abiden of AG and Director in KUP Penang and SuperIntendent of Pentail Police Station to come up with reports and Code of Practices. There is nothing there up to now!!

    Should Parliament be looking into how good “promises” from senior officers in AG/KUP/ Police works in this country?

    Police in Penang were used by that lawyers in many occasions to chase away clients when the lawyers did not do his jobs??

    These are the basis reasons for more crime to come!! Not by illegal labours but those having Disciplines to protect and enforce Laws!! Police join Lawyers to make crime!!

    This is more even than murder of a person. They had murdered the Law, break the Security!!
