IGP: Shelved commercial crime cases to be reopened

IGP Abdul Hamid Bador says police would not be allowed to hold birthday parties in their offices.

KUALA LUMPUR: Investigations are to be reopened in all commercial crime cases that have not been resolved by federal Commercial Crime Investigation Department, said Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador today.

He did not provide details, but said they included online cheating cases.

“There are many cases that are not resolved because the investigating officers concerned did not do their job well, and there are also cases which were not investigated.

“There are also cases where arrest warrants had been issued on the matter, and also on police reports lodged in 2013 with no action taken,” he said in a media interview.

Hamid said the “frozen” cases had to be re-opened to give justice to the victims. “We will find the investigating officer-in-charge and warn the person concerned to get the investigation completed in a month.”

On online gambling, Hamid said the police would go all out to fight it. “I’m not giving it any chance and I forbid any gambling towkay to meet or be nice to me.”

He also said police personnel would no longer be allowed to hold parties, such as birthday celebrations, in their offices.
