There was a suggestion by the a reader of Malaysiakini that Scotland Yard of even FBI be called in to investigate the Altantuya murder case.
According to Malaysiakini VoxPopuli, 'Pak Lah should employ the best investigators to look into the matter. Never mind if we have to employ Scotland Yard or FBI for this is not small matter.'
Amazing, i would say. Seriously, would you think that it is really necessary? There was even a suggestion from a Malaysiakini reader not long ago to appoint a foreigner to head the propose Anti Corruption Board.
Well I will agree that the Malaysian police integrity is perceive to be not up to the standard. But, to have a foreign police to investigate a murder is not a very good idea. Not all policeman are bad or corrupt. My late father was a police officer. He serve the country well and was awarded by HRH The King for his service. But, of course that was almost 20 years ago before he retired. He is no no-nonsense person, he hate corrupt policemen. So, not every policemen is bad.
Most of us may not realize is that we actually contributed to the Police corrupt practice. For example, when we are stopped for talking with our mobile phone, most of the time we would say ' Encik, kita settle kat sini boleh'.
Then, are we not corrupt ourselves?
If we want a corrupt-free enforcement organization, we need to educate ourselves not to be a conspirator.
Coming back to the issue, I strongly against the suggestion of having a foreign enforcement team to investigate the Altantuya murder. Remember not everybody is corrupt. There are many good servicemen out there.
