steadyaku47 comment : The tweet of an IGP and those of his genre in the police force knows themselves to be corrupt cops....there is no need for anyone to tell them so!
7 July 2017
If the IGP thinks it is not an issue that a score of top cops received calls from jailed suspect Gopi, what about the emerging evidence that those same officers were ringing Gopi back during the weeks before his arrest?
Sarawak Report has obtained phone bill records which show this to be the case.
Questioned by journalists over the connections between Malaysia’s top brass in law enforcement and the alleged gangster behind a police protection racket in Malacca, the Inspector General (IGP) has so far been dismissive.
So what that he and fellow officers had taken numerous calls from the suspected ringleader Gopinathan Krishnan, known as Gopi, he maintained on Thursday:
Two Way Traffic
Quite apart from the concern that the country’s top police officer wastes time receiving such calls on his official handphone in his official time, this is clearly not a matter that sits well as a joke when no solid explanations have been provided for the calls.
However, Sarawak Report now has confirmation that at least one of these officers, none other than the Head of CID, Mohamed Salleh (phone number 0196000148) has himself called Gopi (phone number 0126193971) back. The call was at 1040 am on April 24th, which was not long before the latter’s arrest:
At least the CID chief, who is in charge of the country’s gambling and vice squads, was not calling this alleged gangster contact during police hours.
However, it begs the question why would he be in touch with such an apparently disreputable character, reponsible for organising the collection by Malacca police officers of huge sums of cash from gambling dens and massage parlours, so late at night?
Does the IGP want to make a bit of a joke of this as well or might he now decide that a full and open explanation is rapidly in order from himself and all those caught up in Gopi’s web of top police contacts?
After all, the clutch of police officers already in custody have allegedly testified that they were forced to cooperate with Gopi, because the protection racket that was allowing these houses of vice to continue in business (in return for those cash collections) was organised by their superiors.
One Of Khalid’s Cops Received over 100 Calls From Gopi!
The remainder of the list senior police contacts confirmed by investigators as having been dialled up by Gopi during the four months prior to his arrest in May are as follows:
The fact that the Inspector in charge of controlling gambling in the Sungai Buloh district, Inspector Zulfadhly, received no less than 112 contacts from Gopi in the four months prior to his arrest is particularly notable. Analysis by Sarawak Report of the records show that these calls were made throughout the day, from early morning, through the working day until late at night.
Malaysians are entitled to wonder why?
