I refer to the police report made by 3 policemen against an Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer alleging assault.
I have zero tolerance of custodial abuse of any kind. All allegations of custodial abuse will be treated seriously and full cooperation will be the given to investigating bodies.
The MACC has put in a strict Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) governing arrest and detention of suspects.
In this case the policemen who made this complaint were being investigated by the MACC for alleged extortion from suspected drug abusers. This investigation was part of the increased operations by Selangor MACC into alleged extortion activities involving police personnels.
A report has also been lodged by the MACC officer stating that the allegations of assault by the police officers are false.
MACC will render its fullest cooperation with the ongoing police investigation into these reports.
