Lim Kit Siang today questioned Putrajaya's inaction over claims that its efficiency unit and the police had manipulated crime statistics by reclassifying offences to depict a reduced crime rate.
Pinpointing Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein as well as ministers in charge of the government's National Key Result Area (NKRA). Datuk Seri Idris Jala and Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon over the matter. Lim today said the trio should have "instantly" rebutted the "serious allegations of dishonest statistics tampering by the anonymous police officer".
On Wednesday, an anonymous letter purportedly written by policeman alleged of how crimes were being methodically shifted into "non-index" offences that were not registered as part of official statistics presented by efficiency unit PEMANDU.
"If Hishammuddin Idris Jala and Koh continue to keep their silence then Malaysians must thank the anonymous police officer for performing his patriotic duty to answer why Malaysians suffer increasing fear of crime despite claims of continuous drastic fall in crime rate", Lim said today in a press statement.
He added the government should instead appoint a new home minister"who is serious about fighting crime" and who is "honest with Malaysians about the actual crime situation in the country".
BN ministers honest? Uncle Lim was either naive or sarcastic wakakaka.
