IPCMC will finally be set up

September 22, 2018 (PH)

Thirteen years after it was first mooted, Malaysia will finally establish the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC). Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the IPCMC would replace the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (EAIC), and would act as an independent body to look into police complaints more holistically.

The IPCMC is a police oversight body first proposed by the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to improve the police force in 2005, following a spate of deaths in custody.

One of the 125 recommendations by the RCI was for an IPCMC to be set up, which will be independent and able to investigate police misconduct, as well as take necessary action.

The establishment of the IPCMC was also one of the pledges in Pakatan Harapan’s manifesto for the 14th General Election.
