The Johore Bar Human Rights Sub Committee jointly with the Bar Council is organising a public forum on Promoting Greater Police Accountability in Malaysia.
The Bar Council is renewing its call to the Malaysian Government to establish an Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (“IPCMC”), as was recommended by the Royal Commission to Enhance the Operation and Management of the Royal Malaysian Police in 2005.
The purpose of this forum is to look into the cases involving police shooting and deaths in police custody in Malaysia, measures taken – or lack thereof – by the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (“EAIC”) in addressing the situation; and the resulting need to set up IPCMC.
The invited speakers include:
(1) Puan Leong May Chan, Commissioner, Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission;
(2) Mr. Sevan Doraisamy, Executive Director, SUARAM; and
(3) Dato’ Yeo Yang Poh, Member of Johore Bar and Past President of the Malaysian Bar.
We cordially invite all Members of the Bar, pupils in chambers and public to this forum; the details whereof are as follows:
