With ample CCTV in the vicinity of the prime minister’s residence, the police should have no problems investigating the police car crash incident at the premises yesterday, said DAP today.
“With the assistance of CCTV that are surely abundant in the vicinity of the prime minister’s official residence, it would certainly aid police in their investigations, ” said DAP Segambut Lim Lip Eng in a statement.
He called on the police to carry out a thorough investigation into the incident as it was a “serious matter” that affected the nation’s image. “This is a very serious incident as it can be seen to tarnish the image of the nation’s security forces.
“The mental state of the policemen who were involved at the time of the incident must be investigated because it involves the issue of security of the prime minister’s family,” he said in a statement today.
Yesterday Bernama reported that a police car carrying five off duty officers from Shah Alam police headquarters aged between 20 and 22, crashed into the gate in front of the prime minister’s residence.
According to Lim, Kuala Lumpur police chief Mohmad Salleh said in a report today that investigations will centre on why officers were in the vicinity.
“I have full confidence in the police’s capabilities to carry out a detailed investigation towards the cause of the incident and to release its findings to the people as soon as possible. “This is to ensure the police is not seen to lack transparency in investigating this incident,” said Lim.
