SSV-logoCivil society groups are outraged with the violation of human rights principles and the continued abuse of police powers by the officials of the Royal Malaysian Police. Almost every day there is some news on the abuse of power be it death in custody, police shooting, police abuse of suspects, unlawful arrests and many more.

There seems to be no ending to these events. The men in blue who are suppose to uphold the law continues to take the law in their hands. The culture of impunity of the Royal Malaysian Police needs to be arrested and stopped.

We call upon the government under Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib to stop being deaf to the voice of the people, affected communities and members from the civil society to implement the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC). The IPCMC will ensure that the reputation of the police will no longer be tainted by improper conduct or false accusations but move them to be effective in creating a safe environment for all.

The report done in 2005 is comprehensive, progressive and reformist in nature. To restore the public confidence in the police force and to end the violation of human rights by the police, we call upon the government to act with firmness, courage and commitment to implement the recommendations stated in the report for setting up of the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC)

·         Implement Recommendation 12 in Chapter 6- Establishment of the IPCMC

·         Table the reading in Parliament at the next sitting


The killings and abuses by the men in blue are serious and never ending. If this persists, it will be a threat to the well being of our nation and the rule of law.

We, Stop State Violence Coalition urge the Government to have political will in establishing IPCMC and adhering to the report. It is high time for the government to implement its own findings initiated through the Royal Commission and make a stand in reforming its police force without any delay.
