|MADPET issued a Media Statement based on this Malaysiakini report. |
Police alleged to have committed this shameful acts - and SUHAKAM writes to the Police for details of the arrest and remand -- and is "...confident that the police will give this serious attention and will make sure such complaints do not arise again"
What about this complaint? Why is SUHAKAM not carrying out an immediate investigation - and the truth must be sought surely not just from the police (whereby police officers are the alleged perpetrators of these HR violations).
If I want police to investigate - then might as well complain to the police. Why do we have SUHAKAM -- why are people complaining to SUHAKAM - surely not for SUHAKAM to just shift it back to the police for the police to investigate.
Am sure when the complain was made to the Magistrate, she would in accordance to law would have already asked the police to investigate and revert to her/him.... (there are procedures set out as to what a Magistrate should do when she receives a complaint...)

Four individuals have lodged complaints of police abuses, including being forced to perform oral sex, during their remand to the Human Rights Commission (Suhakam).
Lawyer S Karthigesan (right) has declined to name the individuals as police investigations into their initial arrests are still ongoing, but he was not circumspect about their alleged abuses.
At this juncture, the father of one of the suspects, K Sukumaran (left), lodged a police report against the Kajang police station.
