Defer the fake IPCMC Bill to
allow for proper public consultation through Parliamentary Select Committee
No, it was not an empty
auditorium but quite a full house for the Emergency Public Consultation on
the Special Complaints Commission Bill (or fake IPCMC Bill) at the Kuala
Lumpur-Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall last night.
The Public Consultation was in
full support of the views expressed by the panelists that the SCC Bill is
a poor and unacceptable substitute for the Independent Police Complaints
and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) Bill proposed by the Royal Police
Commission as the most important of its 125 recommendations to reform and
transform the Malaysian police into an efficient, accountable,
incorruptible, professional world-class police service.
Edmond Bon, Chairperson of Bar Council Human Rights Committee:
Datuk Param Cumaraswamy, former United Nations Special Rapporteur for Independence of Judges and Lawyers:
I will convey to the Minister
in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, who is
responsible for piloting the Bill through Parliament, the unanimous stand
of the Public Consultation for the establishment of a Parliamentary Select
Committee for proper public consultation and to defer passage of the SCC
Bill until the next parliamentary meeting next year.
