The Bar Council is renewing its call to the Malaysian Government to establish an Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (“IPCMC”), as was recommended by the Royal Commission to Enhance the Operation and Management of the Royal Malaysia Police in its report published in May 2005.
The Bar Council Task Force on IPCMC is holding a public forum entitled “Promoting Greater Police Accountability in Malaysia”. The purpose of this forum is to look into the cases involving police shooting, and deaths in police custody, in Malaysia; the measures taken — or lack thereof — by the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (“EAIC”) in addressing the situation; and the resulting need to set up an IPCMC.
