IGP denies lack of action in warehouse trespass case – The Star Online – 18/7/2017
19 Jul 2017


KUALA LUMPUR: Police have denied there was lack of action in a case where an NGO allegedly trespassed on a warehouse owned by a vehicle leasing company in Kajang.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said police had to follow the law and procedures in investigating the matter.

“We have received reports on the company and the NGO, which allegedly trespassed on the company’s premises.

“We are in the midst of recording statements and gathering evidence before handing the case to the Attorney-General’s Chambers,” Khalid told a press conference after attending the Kuala Lumpur Police Hari Raya open house on Tuesday.

It was reported that members of the Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association (PPIM) allegedly trespassed on a vehicle storage yard in Kajang in order to release cars that were “wrongly stored” there.

The NGO alleged that the company was “given protection” due to lack of action by the police.

Khalid said allegations that police were delaying the investigations were untrue.

On claims that the company committed offences, he said police needed time to study agreements that were signed by the company and their clients.

Police have to identify the nature of the offence, said Khalid.

“I give the assurance that we are investigating all reports in accordance to the law.

“We never defend certain people. We will take action against anyone who breaks the law,” he added.
