“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”-Martin Luther King Jr.
Yesterday, when I wrote about Dato Ramli Yusuff’s acquittal, I quoted Martin Luther King. Jr., the much revered civil rights leader of the John F Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson era. As Malaysians, what affects you will affect me.So what happended to Dato Ramli and Lawyer Rosli Dahlan can happen to us and those who are prepared to speak the truth to power. Mr Prime Minister, Sir, I am going to speak to you from this blog.
Battered Image of Polis Di Raja Malaysia (PDRM) due to Musa Hassan, IGP
This is my continuing rally for change – about the battered image of the PDRM because of the dismal perforance of its worst ever IGP, Musa Hassan. During his tenure as IGP, the illegal money lending syndicate flourished. Crime index soared to an all time high. The Police Force has become the most despised law enforcement agency in Malaysia, the only other contender is the facelifted MACC. Both institutions have become instruments of brute power which started in the Mahathir era.
That IGP Musa Hassan has failed Malaysians, the government and the country is evident from the many and numerous crimes in the country. That IGP Musa Hassan is clueless on how to handle the situation is also evident when he keeps blaming everyone else except himself. He blamed corrupt elements within the PDRM. Using that excuse, he transferred officers at his whims and fancies paralysed the police intelligence capabilities.
He fixed up and eliminated tested proven officers like Dato’ Ramli Yusuff who would have been a threat to him. According to the Statutory Declaration by Musa’s own ADC, the transfers was for the bigger agenda at the behest of the BK Tan syndicate. It was indeed a clean-up, but one that entrenches the syndicate’s hold over the PDRM! Was that the hint made by Dato’ Ramli yesterday in his statement that the men in blue should not be fearful of the syndicate? Was this the fulfilment of Dato’ Ramli’s ominous warning in 2007 before he was stripped of all his powers by IGP Musa Hassan and persecuted by A-G Gani Patail on trumped up charges fabricated by the MACC?
Stop Blaming the best run Immigration Department
Musa Hassan also blamed the Immigration Dept for its laxed policy leading to the increased crime rate. And what happened to the Immmigration Director-General? Was he also not charged by the MACC? Some say the D-G was just a fall guy. Soon, at Musa’s request, there will be re-introduction of stringent VISA requirements for entry including for students. Unwittingly, that would be taking many steps backward towards Malaysia’s objective of being a global education centre. Tan Sri Aseh Che Mat, the architect of that open policy will have something to say about Musa Hassan and his bird brained ideas. After all, Aseh was once the Secretary of the Police Commission and the Secretary-General of the Home Ministry.
Today, we find closed and gated housing all over the country. People feel unsafe even in their own neighbourhood. and have to live in gated community with their own security gurads. That speaks volume about the “feel good/feel safe” factor in the country. The fact that PDRM and crime is one of the NKRA under Dato’ Idris Jala is more than just symptomatic of this loss of faith in the Police to maintain law and order.
The fact that Dato’ Hishammudin has to do his crime prevention walk-about is illustrative of the crisis of confidence over the PDRM generally and with Musa Hassan’s leadership. That Musa Hassan is so much scandalised and despised, simply makes it unacceptable for him to remain in office. He is a liability to the PDRM and Najib’s government. Res ipsa loquitur.(latin: the affairs speak for themselves)
Some weeks ago, Raja Petra Kamaruddin reported about the raid on Musa Hassan’s house, resulting in the recovery of large amounts of cash. The whole of Bukit Aman was abuzz with such whisperings. The self exiled web-master and blogger reported that a deal was cut to allow Musa Hassan to retire by the end of March.
Only yesterday (March 12), the China Press reported as follows:
“The Inspector-General of Police, Musa Hassan has submitted his resignation to Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein Onn, five months before the end of his contract.
Apparently he planned to formally step down on March 25 at a function commemorating the 203rd Police Day. If true, this is good news to be celebrated as Musa Hassan should not have his term extended in the first place as his performance as Inspector-General of Police had been attrocious.”
That is the voice of the Chinese community speaking. If you, PM Najib is serious about 1Malaysia, listen to that! It is only to be expected that Musa Hassan would use his own cohort like the Star’s pimp editor Lourdes Charles to refute that as follows:

IGP Musa denies he’s quitting
By LOURDES CHARLES
The Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan has denied that he has resigned while questioning the source of the information.
“I have not submitted any resignation letter to the Prime Minister or anyone. I want to know if the source is from an official channel or from the ‘underground’,” he said when contacted on Saturday.
“I know it is not from the (Home) Ministry as I have checked with its secretary-general Datuk Mahmood Adam, who denied any knowledge.”
Musa said if information in the article published was obtained from unofficial channels including the “underground” such as syndicates, then he “felt sorry” for the country.
He said if the “underground” could manipulate the post of the IGP, then Malaysia was heading for disaster.
“I have asked my officers to check with the newspaper that published the article and find out the source who gave them the misleading information,” he added.
Musa had been given an extension to his one-year contract and he is due to retire in September.
A Chinese daily had reported that Musa was expected to step down on March 25 during a Police Day function. It quoted sources that said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein accepted his resignation.”
Listen to this, Musa Hassan- no amount of denial can change the public’s perception that you are unfit to be IGP. The people of Penang are angry with you for making your policemen to lodge various reports to harrass CM Lim Guan Eng, whereas there are many things undone by the police. If you care for PDRM, if you have any maruah left in you as the son of a much admired Ustaz Hassan Azahari from whom learn to sharp my reading of the Koran while watching TV, then leave before you are hounded out.
I now say the same thing to A-G Gani – do not desecrate your office by appealing against Dato’ Ramli’s acquittal. Do not waste public funds by continously persecuting the innocent. Spend your time and effort to get the real murderers of Altantuya, start by appealing against Razak Baginda’s acquittal. Restore religious harmony by prosecuting the two Al-Islam reporters for desecrating a Holy Communion.
Restore integrity to the august office of the A-G by prosecuting the MACC officers who murdered Teoh Beng Hock, start by ensuring government doctors do not fabricate medical reports. But then you would have to first resign since you were already implicated in falsifying the medical report in Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s black eye incident, and your role in Sodomy II.
I now say to the MACC Abu Kassim, withdraw the charge against Lawyer Rosli Dahlan because your misguided DPP Kevin Morais cannot be more straight than the man he is prosecuting. To DPP Dzulqarnain, remember that as an IIU graduate you must demonstrate and embody that principle of “amr ma’ruf nahy mungkar” and desist from the being a party to the persecution of Rosli Dahlan. Lest history will judge you for “bersubahat” against Rosli Dahlan who is from the first batch of IIU graduates together with Dato’ Ramli. The loyalty he has shown of that IIU brotherhood to the extent of endangering himself should cast shame on you.
In the name of change, I say to IGP Musa Hassan- step down. To A-G Gani -give way to Dato’ Yusof Zainal Abidien. To MACC Abu Kassim- be firm, do now bow to the other two, break away from being the third that Unholy Trinity.
To PM Najib, I say – Malaysians want the above changes! Let the healing process begin.
