Stop State Violence

Stop State Violence movement is formed by a group of Malaysian NGOs in October 2012, aiming to end all tragedies of police shooting and custodial death.

Our Demands

We the Rakyat, civil society, the many victims, family members and survivors of brutality and the affected communities demand the following:

1. Without fear or favour, bring all offenders among the police, MACC and other enforcement agencies, to justice including for serious criminal charges and disciplinary proceedings that commensurate with the offences;

2. Immediately establish the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) to function as an independent, external oversight body to investigate complaints about police personnel and to make the police accountable for their conduct;

3. Institute an Ombudsmen system that enforces human rights practice in all enforcement agencies and their places of detention such as prisons, immigration detention centres and lockups;

4. Review and make public the law enforcement agencies’ standard operating procedures including the Inspector General Standing Order on police guidelines on discharge of firearms and detention and interrogation;

5. Support the setting up of an independent and competent Coroner’s Court system to replace the current Magistrate’s Inquest which is extremely problematic and ineffective;

6. Support the enactment of an anti-torture legislation that criminalises torture, cruel, inhuman and/or degrading treatment that provides serious punishment and redress mechanisms as per Malaysia’s obligations under international customary law;

7. Support human rights education and training programmes, with a view to changing the attitudes, perceptions and methods of law enforcement personnel.
