TTF: I think Dato’ Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh is a man of good conscience and performs his duty with honour and integrity. Period
KUALA LUMPUR: Amid accusation of unprofessional conduct, police have urged former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to pinpoint the personnel involved so that stern action can be taken against the person.
Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh said police will not tolerate unprofessional conduct among its men.
“I request that more details be provided on the incident that had taken place and also identify the police personnel involved.
“I will not tolerate such unprofessional conduct and stern action shall be taken against the personnel concerned for violating our standard operating procedures, and if the allegation is found to be true,” he said in a statement today.
Amar Singh said this in response to allegation that police personnel had helped themselves to food and chocolates in the refrigerator, during one of the searches, as reported by a news portal.
As for the leaked photographs, he urged the relevant parties to provide further details to enable police to determine the source of the leakage – whether it was from the police or other parties who were also present during the police search.
“In reference to allegation of leaked images, no officers and personnel were allowed to carry mobile phones except for the commanders and deputy field commanders.
“Photographs and videos on the premises involved are recorded by our official photographer.
“If the other parties are able to come up with evidence, an investigation will be conducted to determine the source,” he said.
Amar Singh said the simultaneous search at six premises were conducted in a fair and professional manner.
He said six senior police officers have been appointed as field commanders to oversee the entire operation.
“They are also given the responsibility to ensure that their personnel act professionally and show respect to the former prime minister and his family members,” he said.
Earlier, Najib’s lawyer, Datuk Harpal Singh Grewal, had said that Najib expressed dismay at the “indiscriminate manner” of the authorities in seizing items at his family’s residential units.
There was also claimed that policemen had helped themselves to food and chocolates in the refrigerator, and also demanded that meals be prepared for them during the inspection.
Najib’s wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor through Valen’s law firm, Oh And Partners claimed there were details of the operations that were being spread on social media.
