Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) was the cry of civil societies since it was recommended in 2005 by the Royal Commission to Enhance the Operation and Management of the Royal Malaysia Police. Under the rule of our ex-Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi the toothless Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (EAIC) was formed to substitute IPCMC.
The Royal Commission released a 576 page report with 125 recommendations which one of it is the need for the police force to have an oversight mechanism to make sure the Royal Police of Malaysia respects human rights and performs its duties in accordance to the law. GE-13 is around the corner. No matter it’s BN or PR to rule the country for the next term, we need IPCMC to be implemented!
SUARAM plans for a campaign to put up banners on #ipcmc anywhere and everywhere we are possible to do it.
It’s election fever now and this is the right time to show people’s stand on the need for #ipcmc
