Politics and Policy: Scrutiny of police conduct at an impasse for now

November 14, 2019 (PH)

Efforts to turn the spotlight on the police over deaths in custody and during encounters have remained inconclusive even after a decade of official engagement.

Now, the Pakatan Harapan government, which came to power on the promise of a reform agenda, is getting a newly established parliamentary select committee to vet a bill to check the powers of the force. The draft law was tabled in the current sitting of parliament.

So far, the Independent Police Complaints of Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) Bill has met with a chorus of objections from opposition parliamentarians and public interest groups.
