Top cop Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani today said the police would leave it to the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (EIAC) to investigate claims of a cartel and other forms of misconduct by members of the force.
Speaking at a press conference, he welcomed the investigation, saying a letter had been written to the agency to investigate allegations of a cartel in the police force.
“Our hands are off (the investigation),” he said. “We will let the third party conduct a thorough investigation.”
He also said there would be no compromise on any form of misconduct within the police force.
“I will make sure that in every step we take, we will uphold integrity.
“We will not compromise, we will not tolerate,” he added.
Allegations of a cartel surfaced after comments to that effect by Acryl’s predecessor, Abdul Hamid Bador.
Hamid had said the cartel involved young police officers who sought to tarnish his image.
“There are attempts to humiliate and topple me.
“I would like to advise them, please stop the outrageous act,” he said in an interview with Malay daily Sinar Harian on March 17. “They must realise that the police force is not ours, and not our playing field.”
