PRESS STATEMENT BY:-
TAN SRI DATUK ROBERT PHANG MIOW SIN
JUSTICE OF THE PEACE.
CHAIRMAN – SOCIAL CARE FOUNDATION
Do not bash IGP and PDRM below the belt.
Reference is made to an article written and published in the Malaysiakini website on 6th May 2015, “APOLOGISE FOR CALLING IGP BARUA COPS TELL AZMIN”.
This article refers to the remark made by Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali for calling the IGP an “UMNO BARUA”. The Chairperson of the Gazetted Officers Branch of the Senior Police Officers Association, Shah Ghazali Khan Shahdad said the remark has hurt the Police and that the entire PDRM is very hurt by this statement and strongly condemns Azmi.
Majority of the nation more so Selangor residents expect their Menteri Besar to be a well cultured, well mannered and observe good Traditions Leader. We do not resort to insulting and bashing the IGP, amounting to insult and bashing the entire PDRM that serves the Nation, without taking into account politics, race or religion.
If Azmin has some good sense, he must issue an open Sincere Apology to IGP and PDRM unconditionally for this insult. No matter under what circumstances, there is no reason for anyone to use such uncultured words against anyone or Government servant, more so to the IGP and PDRM. Needless to say, insulting and defaming another is definitely a sin.
Incidentally, the Government should not “FREEZE” the new police recruits - Security for the nation is the top priority.
“HUMBLENESS IS A GOOD VIRTUE, ARROGANCE SHALL FALL, THE MEEK WILL RULE THE WORLD”.
Tan Sri Datuk Robert Phang
Justice of the Peace.
