Outgoing IGP Hamid says will expose ‘Datuk Seri’ who abused his power for political gain

KUALA LUMPUR : Retiring Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said today (April 3) he would identify a prominent figure with a “Datuk Seri” title for alleged abuse of power.

In a brief statement to Astro Awani, Hamid alleged that the person abused his power by using a police department, believed to be the Special Branch, for his own political purposes.

“I will expose this abuse of power by said individual who used this power to suppress his political enemies,” he said in a brief message on WhatsApp to Astro Awani reporters.

However, Hamid did not specify when the disclosure would be made.
