[ENGLISH VERSION BELOW] Suruhanjaya Hak Asasi Manusia Malaysia (Suhakam) melahirkan rasa kecewanya dengan keputusan untuk menangguhkan bacaan Rang Undang-Undang (IPCMC) 2019 ke sesi persidangan Dewan Rakyat akan datang tanpa memberikan sebab yang sewajarnya.

Memandangkan bahawa syor-syor untuk penubuhan IPCMC dibuat pada pertama kali oleh Suruhanjaya Diraja untuk Meningkatkan Operasi dan Pengurusan Polis Diraja Malaysia pada tahun 2005, Suhakam percaya bahawa deraf dan kelulusan rang undang-undang ini sudah terlalu lama tertangguh.

Suhakam telah membuat syor-syor berkenaan dengan kandungan rang undang-undang dan mengikuti perkembangannya dengan teliti.

IPCMC penting bagi menambah baik kebertanggungjawaban di kalangan polis dan menyediakan sistem semak imbang sebagai mekanisma pengawasan baginya.

Ia juga seharusnya menyediakan perlindungan terhadap salah laku polis dan salah guna kuasa, terutamanya dalam kes-kes yang disyaki melibatkan penyeksaan, kematian dalam tahanan dan kehilangan paksa.

Adalah diharapkan agar syor-syor Suhakam dimasukkan ke dalam Rang Undang-Undang IPCMC dan tiada lagi penangguhan dalam meluluskan rang undang-undang ini.

Suhakam disappointed over delay in police complaints commission bill

The Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) wishes to express its disappointment at the decision to defer the reading of the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) Bill 2019 to the next parliamentary meeting without any satisfactory reason being given.

Suhakam believes that, following the recommendation for the creation of an IPCMC – first made by the Royal Commission of Inquiry to Enhance the Operation and Management of the Police in 2005, the drafting and passing of this bill is long overdue.

Suhakam has made recommendations regarding the content of the bill and has been closely monitoring its development.

The IPCMC is vital to the improvement of accountability amongst the police and provides a system of checks and balances as an oversight mechanism.

It should also provide safeguards against police misconduct and abuse of power, especially in suspected cases of torture, death in custody and enforced disappearance.

Suhakam hopes that its recommendations will be reflected in the IPCMC Bill and that there will be no further delays in passing this bill.
