PUTRAJAYA suggests establishing an impartial and independent oversight body to investigate complaints of misconduct in all enforcement agencies, Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim said today. 

He said the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) bill proposed earlier only focuses on the police, and he has asked the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) to review the proposal for an independent body that can investigate all enforcement agencies, including the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
