You are the man, Mr IGP!

Yang di-Pertuan Agong's statement on Bersih illegal rally here...

NO ROOM FOR ILLEGAL DEMOS, says IGP Tan Sri Ismail Omar in Butterworth today (here)... and dont ever try to challenge the police in carrying out its duty!

For the first time since taking office from Musa Hassan about a year ago, the Inspector-General of Police has finally stood tall with this stinging remarks. He is beginning to be 'the man in-charge', and I think i am going to like him.

That's the way, bro. As the IGP, you are vested with a special power to act using your own jurisdiction in determining the best action to deal with security matters. Of course, while the Home Ministry is there as a political-governing regulatory institution for national security, an IGP should know how and when to act in attending to situations like this.

"Don't challenge the sovereignty of the law which has been enshrined in the federal constitution. Police will take appropriate action using the law provided against anyone violating the law," he said in urging those intending to participate in the illegal assembly on July 9 to abort their plan or face police action.

The police had received more than 2,000 police reports nationwide protesting against the illegal assembly and PDRM had certain strategies which could be used to maintain security.

And in Petaling Jaya, his deputy Datuk Seri Abdul Khalid Abu Bakar said (here) the police have not dismissed the possibility that more people will be arrested under the Emergency Ordinance (Public Order and Prevention of Crime) 1969 for subversive activities.

He also brushed aside claims by some groups that police were out to arrest anyone according to their whims.

Yesterday, police detained Sungai Siput Member of Parliament Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj and five members of the Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) under the Emergency Ordinance. To date, 152 people have been arrested under Section 27(5) of the Police Act.

In 1987, the IGP used the special power vested in him to carry out the arrest of 106 people under Ops Lalang to quell street demonstrations in Kuala Lumpur. It met with heavy criticism from various quarters, including the Opposition, NGOs and foreign media but it proved to be very successful in bringing about stability to the nation.

And with Bersih 2.0 is ready to challenge the law and order on July 9, I believe Ismail and team are ready to brace it. As our IGP, peace-loving Malaysians are looking at him.

JANGAN KASI CAN SAMA DIORANG!

as the IGP, ismail must also be firm and decisive in whatever resolution taken by the police to act against bersih on july 9, bro.

however, he must also not put the police in jeopardy if such an action is overboard.

find a good and 'bersih' solution in attending to it.

we dont want any bad incident on that day.

anyway, we must appreciate the police in maintaining peace and stability to the country. its not easy to supervise peace in a multi-racial society.

salam tuan,

saya berusia 71 tahun dan pernah hidup di zaman darurat, ketika komunis mengganas di malaya dan malaysia.

janganlah biarkan anasir ini kembali bertapak di bumi tanahair tercinta ini kerana kesannya amatlah mendukacitakan kita semua.

sesiapa saja, sama ada orang melayu, cina, india dan kaum lain yang mengancam keselamatan negara perlulah diasingkan dari masyarakat.

utamakanlah masa depan anak cucu cicit kita.

we need a powerful IGP to lead the police force, bro. a weak one will not bring any effect to the force. we also cannot depend totally on decisions made by the home ministry. as you said, the IGP is empowered to take unilateral action should the situation worsens.

i think there wont be any bersih rally on july 9.

with such a strong statement from the igp and home minister, they must think more than twice before doing it.

sky high said...

now that the agong has spoken, those planning for the rally must consider it or they will be taken up as traitors to the country.

traitors deserve to special pardon and also dont deserve to be citizens of malaysia.

so, call it quit, will u ambigator?

patik yang hina said...

daulat tuanku!

titah tuanku memang kena pada masanya. biarlah pengkhianat negara ini berfikir sebelum berbuat sesuatu yang akan memudaratkan nasib anak cucu mereka sendiri.

kita akan dokong institusi beraja di negara ini, dengan orang melayu sebagai tunjangnya.

kita akan tentang habis-habisan pihak yang ingin mendurhaka kepada tuanku dan raja-raja melayu yang lain.

ini tanah melayu!kalau melayu sendiri yang durhaka, mereka juga akan kami tentang!

i think khalid is better than ismail...

minardi said...

what if they shift the venue from kuala lumpur to other places at the 11th hour?

how will the police monitor the situation?

as they are desperate enough, bersih will find ways and means to stage the rally successfully.

do we have enough police personnel to contain it?

apam balik said...

kalau polis tak mampu kawal keadaan, biar je pihak tentera yang ganyang diorang ni!

mr santana said...

ambiga ni bukan manusia. dia takkan peduli apa agong dan polis cakap. dia akan teruskan juga.

so, untuk halang dia, cekup je cepat2, tan sri.

buat apa tunggu lama2. cekup sorang dua untuk keselamatan 26 juta rakyat, tak jadi kudis punya.

orang luar takda hak campur tangan dalam urusan keselamatan negara kita sendiri!

sesiapa yang minta bantuan negara asing tu, elok tinggalkan je negara ni dan pergi ke negara mana dia suka!

laknat!

koboi melayu said...

seri paduka baginda yang di-pertuan agong sudah pun bertitah.

jadi, apa lagi yang ambiga dan bersih nak bantah?

spr bukan badan mentah, tuntutan bersih pun ntah apa2 ntah

kalau begitu, polis tangkap je, bagi diorang ni muntah...

Anonymous said...

mereka ingat polis ni main2 agaknya. amaran demi amaran diberikan tetapi ambiga tetap berdegil.

jadi, apa tunggu lagi PDRM? gempur je. kalau boleh, tembak je kasi mampus semua yang ambil bahagian nanti.

kecik2 taknak mampus, dah besar menyusahkan orang! dia ingat negara ni datuk nenek dia yang punya!

kalau tak, takkan lah naik jadi ketua polis negara!

syabas tan sri
