A pregnant store owner identified a policewoman whom she claimed had taken RM20,000 from her shop. Chow Soo Meng picked out the policewoman, who was among nine others in the parade, within 30 seconds. This was Chow’s second identification parade after she had fingered five officers as being among those who assaulted her on Saturday.
The 36-year-old mother of two said she immediately recognised the policewoman. Chow arrived at the Petaling Jaya police headquarters at about 12.05pm yesterday and left a few minutes later.
She was accompanied by Segambut MP Lim Lip
“I want them to return my cash as they don’t have any right to seize it,” she said.
During the incident, Chow said at least 10 men and a woman tried to enter her convenience store at Jalan Perkhidmatan, Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh, at about 6.30pm on Feb 1. Chow claimed that when she refused to let them in as they did not show any identification, the group cut through the shop’s grille before barging in and handcuffing her. She also claimed the police refused to let her know what her offence was but instead slapped her twice and removed the CCTV system from her shop.
Meanwhile, Federal CID director Comm Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin said at a press conference that police were not being defensive in cases of personnel misusing their powers. He said they were looking into such cases seriously and urged those not satisfied to contact him personally. “There is a special body to look into such matters,” he added.Related news: Pregnant woman identifies female cop in 30 seconds http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/155567
