Manek Urai? Everyone's waiting for the offical result.
But a far more important issue needs to be aired, namely the likelihood of an extension for the current IGP, whose contract runs out in September.
Please read the following and tell me whether you support his extension?
Tan Sri Siti Norma Yaakob, the Chief Judge of Malaya, has expressed her deep concerns that 80 deaths in police custody occurred between January 2000 and December 2004 – that’s an average of 20 people dying per annum while in police custody, or almost a frightening 2 per month for 4 continuous years - but only 6 inquests, less than 10% of the deaths, were even held. […]
She demanded to know why police had seen it fit to decide that inquests were unnecessary in 22 cases of such deaths. ... In fact, the Criminal Procedure Code specifically makes it mandatory to have inquests into deaths under police custody.
Yet the IGP has not addressed this unacceptable omission, a violation of the Criminal Procedure Code. The IGP must be held responsible and accountable for his failure.

Also see a few of previous posts I have posted about the IGP at the bottom, and you wonder why tha bloke should even be allowed to continue as IGP, let alone get an extension to his tenure which unfortunately for us and in all probability he will get.
Under his IGP-ship, crime rates have soared as never before in our nation’s history, yet why doesn’t the government, including the previous one under AAB, let him retire if not sack him, and get fresh blood in?
Is he that indispensable (even to UMNO)?
As we have already assessed, from rocketing crime stats and the continuing deaths in police custody, that professionally he certainly hasn’t been and is unlikely to be.
Or, more likely, has he got the PM, the current as well as the previous ones, by the balls?
