A-G Chambers In Final Lap On IPCMC Study, Says Abdullah
The Prime Minister said the A-G Chambers would advise the Government soon on the setting up of the commission. He said the Government was serious in efforts to boost the image of the police force into a credible and effective law enforcer. "Therefore, whatever mechanism needs to be set up for the purpose, we will do it," he said.
Abdullah, who is also Internal Security Minister, was replying to Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Ipoh Timur) on the progress of the study to set up the commission and whether the government still held to its promise to establish the commission.
**** So if you take the PM at his words the IPCMC should be a reality 'soon'. It would be interesting to see what the reaction of the police will be now that it has been 'officially' announced in Parliament. However the unknown now is what the Attorney General's recommendation would be. If he were to backtrack on the original spirit of the IPCMC then it will be open season on the AG. We'll just have to wait and watch.
