Whole nation is watching Pak Lah. Will he quell police revolt?



Press Statement
by Chow Kon Yeow

(Penang , Wednesday): The whole nation is watching PM Abdullah and he can feel it. It is not enough for him to just say “the views of a minority in the police force objecting to the setting up of the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) did not reflect the feelings of the majority.”

How does PM Abdullah knows that it was not the majority views within the police force?

Putting aside whether it is minority or majority views, the publication on the website detailing dissatisfaction and “threats” of retaliation are too serious to be dismissed by a mere statement by PM Abdullah.

How can he take it so lightly?

The statements made by the police are definitely against national interests, treacherous and rebellious!

Nobody should be left unpunished for such anti national activities. Usurping the power, integrity and honour of the Prime Minister is one thing but threatening national security and public order ought not to be taken lightly, especially from the custodian of peace and order.

Umno MPs escaped scot-free when they spoke with their “conscience” against the setting up of the IPCMC.

At that time, I likened their action as a revolt against the Prime Minister.

Now we have another open revolt and yet PM Abdullah seems so cool about it.

Malaysians are anxious to know whether PM Abdullah will take action against the police force.

I have submitted a question for the Prime Minister for the coming Parliament session on 26 June. But do we have to wait so long for your answer?
