Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador pledged today that the police will look at all necessary laws to deal with culprits behind the pollution in Sungai Selangor.

“We have not ruled out Sosma (Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012) as the investigation is still ongoing,” he said.

However, on the 22ndof July 2018, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad gave assurance that the law would be repealed in the name of justice to ensure that every offence committed would be adjudicated in the court of law.

Well, whatever happened to that justice? Whatever happened to Lim Kit Siang’s claim that Sosma was unconstitutional and gave the Prime Minister of Malaysia near absolute power?


PETALING JAYA: Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador pledged today that the police will look at all necessary laws to deal with culprits behind the pollution in Sungai Selangor.

A report by the New Straits Times Online quoted the IGP as saying that the pollution, which saw millions facing water disruption in the Klang valley, will face the brunt of the law.

“Back then, those responsible in sabotaging or damaging public infrastructures including utilities could be investigated (and detained) under ISA (Internal Security Act).


“This shows the severity of the offence.

“We have not ruled out Sosma (Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012) as the investigation is still ongoing.

“We view this matter seriously as it has affected some four million users (in the Klang Valley). I have instructed Selangor police chief to lead the investigation team in this case,” he said.

According to reports, the pollution may have been the work of three anglers seen fishing at Sungai Selangor near Rantau Panjang.

The NST report read:

Selangor police chief Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin said workers of a sand dredging company at the site informed police that the trio were spotted fishing near a pontoon (belonging to the company).

He said preliminary investigation showed that the cover of a fuel tank on the pontoon had been removed resulting in about 100 litres of diesel gushing into the river.

Noor Azam said that based on a police report lodged, the complainant from the company (Syarikat Two-B Machineries Sdn Bhd), said it could also be an act of mischief.

He said the case was being investigated under Section 430 of the Penal Code for committing mischief.

All this is fine, as we at TTF are all for the use of Sosma to deal with offenders. However, there is a minor detail the IGP seems to have left out.

Specifically, was it not Pakatan Harapan that chastised the previous Barisan Nasional administration for introducing the law?

On the 22ndof July 2018, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad gave assurance that Sosma would be repealed in the name of justice to ensure that every offence committed would be adjudicated in the court of law.

“The people will be protected by fair laws so that if they committed any offence, they will be judged by the court … the court will determine whether or not the person is guilty, ” he said.

Well, whatever happened to that justice?

Whatever happened to Lim Kit Siang’s claim that Sosma was unconstitutional and gave the Prime Minister of Malaysia near absolute power?

Will Mahathir and Kit Siang respond to this?

THE THIRD FORCE
