BINTULU MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing is furious that no action has been taken against a top cop in the Mukah district police department following probe over the latter’s alleged wrongdoings.
Tiong said the outcome of the investigations by the police and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission against the top cop attached with the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has not been convincing.
“I have expressed these complaints submitted to me by the Mukah people months ago and requested the Sarawak PDRM to open an investigation.
“What does this signal to the whistleblowers who came forward to report his (the policeman’s) behaviour? Who would now dare to say a word?” Tiong posted on his social media today.
The New Sarawak is withholding the name of the individual pending comments from him.
Tiong added that the people have placed their hopes on him to raise questions about the senior policeman’s alleged misdeeds in Mukah, but no action had been taken against the cop.
Tiong, who is also Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) president did not divulge the details about the senior police officer’s alleged misdeeds, except to say that it had been going on for seven years.
Tiong had in January this year urged Bukit Aman and the MACC to investigate the police officer.
Now Tiong also wants the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador and the Home Ministry to look into this matter.
The senior police officer is not the first civil servant Tiong had an axe to grind with. In November last year, during a debate in the Dewan Rakyat, Tiong said Health Director-General Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah takut mati (was afraid to die), which was why the latter did not visit the frontlines in the fight against Covid-19.
Tiong apologised following public outcry over his remarks.
