  • Politically speaking Fuzi Harun was NOT the worst IGP..Corruption is another matter..In New Malaysia, every enforcement agency was going to take a hit. Finance Ministry was one of them, even GLC which is the best performing of all the govt arm are going to take a hit. From what Mahathir said about emulating Japanese, he really is out to make cultural change, not just technocratic.

  • There's a saying..Harapkan Pagar, Pagar Makan Padi...our PDRM is know of these saying with the kind of corruption that we saw the last couple of years. No action but transfers or just turn a blind eye. We are talking about the Front Line of defence of our country and they are WEAK! At time sold their soulsand worst still, just stood still when they see injustice been done to the Rakyat....No policing work but more interested in out-riding and protecting the Rich and influence folks ...... but paid by the Rakyat! Heads must roll but the ROT must be fixed too.....changes for the better not in the name of change. I hope the PH Government does what's best ......

  • My late father worked in the accounts section at Bukit Aman Police HQ from the 1950's till his retirement, & commented that in its heyday then our police force was among the best in the world. Time to re-visit our past excellence?..
