Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng.

KUALA LUMPUR: Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng today urged the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate several allegations of wrongdoings and corruption involving 15 police personnel and senior officers.

Lim claimed the incidents of alleged offences involved senior officers of various ranks, including those holding the deputy commissioner (DCP) and senior assistant commissioner (SAC) ranks.

“Today, I am at MACC to deliver a letter on the report of an investor in the federal capital who lost RM7.9 million in cash at his condominium after it was searched by a team of policemen from the Kuala Lumpur Narcotics CID on Sept 8 last year.

“Apart from that, I am also asking MACC to investigate claims of a woman who was allegedly raped by a policeman in a police station toilet in Sarikei, Sarawak, on Oct 30.

“Another policeman allegedly bribed a superior officer in Bukit Aman for promotion,” he told a press conference after handing over his letter to Kuala Lumpur MACC here today.

He said his office had also received many complaints from various parties, including alleged victims, members of the public as well as police personnel, claiming wrongdoings over the past few years.
