KUALA LUMPUR: Inspector-General of Police Hamid Bador today issued a stern warning that police will not tolerate law enforcers being threatened.

Hamid said he viewed such developments seriously and had instructed his officers and personnel to immediately go after the culprits.

According to Bernama, several incidents involving the police and law enforcers had taken place in the last few weeks.

On April 28, a group of men went on a rampage at the house of the Selayang Municipal Council enforcement chief at Taman Muhibbah in Rawang.

They splashed red paint on two of her cars and lit firecrackers that were placed in a paint can filled with nails, pieces of iron and paper shreds.

The case is being investigated under Section 435 for causing mischief and damage to property and Section 427 of the Penal Code for causing mischief by fire.

On May 13, a car belonging to a deputy public prosecutor at the Baling Magistrate’s Court was splashed with whitewash at her house at Taman Mutiara in Kulim, Kedah.

Another case involved Jerantut DAP division chief Loo Why Leong, who was detained by police on Sunday to facilitate investigations into an alleged threatening message via WhatsApp to the Jerantut OCPD.
