MALAYSIA COURT OF APPEAL FOUND POLICE IGP, OFFICERS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATH OF A. KUGAN?

Labels:

The three judges of the Court of Appeal on Friday unanimously upheld the judgment of the High Court on the case and found that Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and his police officers were responsible for the death of A. Kugan in Taipan USJ, Subang Jaya police station on January 20, 2009.
The judgment of the Malaysian High Court presided by Datuk V. T. Singham that the current IGP was not only found to have given misleading information to the public at that time, but also failed to follow the instruction of the Attorney-General to investigate the case as murder rather than causing hurt, and did not direct a formal departmental inquiry on the case.
The High Courd judge also questioned the failure of the then Selangor police chief in his duty to hold an inquest into the death of Kugan and clarify his misleading public statement.
More damning, the judge concluded that there were elements of a cover up on the real cause for the death of Kugan.
According to   executive director of rights group Suaram, Yap Swee Seng; the IGP and his police officers involved in the case must be brought to criminal justice if the independent investigation is to find them criminally liable for the death of Kugan.  
This would be in line with the judgment of the Court of Appeal that attributed liability at 55% for the death of Kugan against the police, and 45% against Navindran, the sole police officer that was charged and convicted so far, he wrote.
