The Police Killing Field: The Royal Malaysian Police must answer to Raja Petra's serious allegation on police killing people!
Raja Petra of Malaysia Today has made some very serious allegations and insinuation when he wrote in his column, No Holds Barred read here saying that the police might have killed people and buried them in a secret graveyard. Thus a Police Killing Field!!(Raja Petra also published rebuttals both in English here and Bahasa Melayu here).
What I failed to understand is how come the authority is not reprimanding him over such serious allegation, if I read the column correctly. If read it correctly he sort of saying the police might have "bumped" people in the middle of the night and then bury them in an unmarked grave.
This is an excerpt on what Raja Petra wrote in that column:
"It makes one wonder whether the police knew where to go because it is a ‘gazetted dumpsite’ where all ‘bumped off’ people are disposed. Does this then mean that the two police officers on trial alongside Razak are police hit men whose job it is to bump people off and then get rid of their bodies at that site where they retrieved Altantuya’s remains? This, of course, remains mere speculation but there is certainly cause for speculation and the evidence all seem to point to this assumption."
Hey this is a very serious statement and if the police do not take any action against the writer over the allegation then something is definitely is wrong with the country's system. I am now afraid of the police after reading Raja Petra's column for I can also be bumped off, you can be bumped off. If it is true some serious investigation must be conducted, this is very crucial for they public to feel safe from the very forces that are supposed to be looking after our safety.
No cheers today!
