Did the present IGP just say that a previous IGP is crooked? Which one?

The Sundaily report:

“I urge my personnel to end this culture and come to their senses. The culture of taking money from the bottom to the top for the IGP,” he said today.

“Even the officers on the ground are afraid to take action because the IGP wants it. This was happening before.Those who have retired from the force are still trying to enforce their powers in seeking favours from the police.

SHAH ALAM: Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador (pix) did not mince his words when he took a swipe on crooked police personnel including past police top brass.

“I urge my personnel to end this culture and come to their senses. The culture of taking money from the bottom to the top for the IGP,” he said today.

“Even the officers on the ground are afraid to take action because the IGP wants it. This was happening before.Those who have retired from the force are still trying to enforce their powers in seeking favours from the police.

“When they are not entertained they are disappointed and then they start finding faults here and there. They say what I am doing is wrong. I stand here and challenge them. What is wrong with what I have done or am doing. I want a police station to be a place where the public can take their woes to and not be afraid of.

“I like to tell them, PDRM is not mine, it belongs to the country. I as the IGP have to convince the government that I am here to lead the force to the right path, to correct the wrongs and the bad culture in the force. I have no sinister motives,“ he added.

Even top cops ask for money, says IGP

Adam Abu Bakar -March 22, 2021 2:23 PM

SHAH ALAM: A culture of asking for money exists not only among the lower ranks of the police force but even at the top levels, Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador has revealed.

He said this is why he aims to destroy this old culture, to ensure the integrity and credibility of the police force is upheld and respected by the community.

Hamid also revealed that there were several retired officers who were still using their former positions to request for “various things” from officers who were still in the force.

“When they’re not entertained, then they get disappointed and start to find fault. I want to tell this group, the police (force) is not mine or yours, but the country’s.”

He also explained that his revelation of a cartel within the force had nothing to do with the fact that his tenure as IGP was to end in May.

“Although some say it was a ‘naughty’ tactic to extend my tenure, it has nothing to do with my leaving (the position). I’m just puzzled as to how some would criticise when one does something good,” he said.

He added that he had also apologised to home minister Hamzah Zainudin for exposing the issue without informing him beforehand.

“I will just bring the matter up to the minister,” he said, adding that it was up to Hamzah whether to bring the issue to the Police Force Commission.

On calls for a royal commission of inquiry to be formed to probe his claims of the cartel, Hamid simply said the situation was “under control”.
