Syed Hamid admits police mishandled the Perak State Assembly fiasco

Perak fiasco: Police made mistakes, says Syed Hamid

Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar admitted that the police made mistakes in handling the Perak State Assembly fiasco on Tuesday.

“If we study the situation in toto, we can see the mistakes made by the police. But I think the Bar Council should look at the situation from the point of law.

The emergency sitting was called by State Assembly Speaker V. Sivakumar, who was the only one allowed into the building. Instead, Sivakumar held the emergency sitting at a vacant lot near the secretariat building.

The court order restraining Sivakumar from holding any meeting “purporting to be state assemblies” was however only issued late Tuesday afternoon.

Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming filed an emergency motion at the Dewan Rakyat Speaker’s Office on Wednesday to debate and condemn the incident in Parliament.

On Tuesday, Nga and Titi Serong assemblyman Khalil Idham Lim had also lodged police reports against the Ipoh OCPD and state secretary for stopping the 28 assemblymen from entering the Perak Darul Ridzuan Building.

“This took place because they (Pakatan Rakyat reps) wanted to do things at their whim and fancy and refused to follow the law,” Syed Hamid told reporters after meeting Kelantan Rela members here Wednesday.

He had been asked to comment the Bar Council’s statement that the police had not been impartial when carrying out their duties.

The Bar Council statement said there were questions as to whether the emergency sitting concerned could be held outside the assembly building.

“Of course, the building is where the assembly ought to be held. However, the Speaker and assemblymen were prevented from holding it in a proper place by the police and this raises serious issues as to the legality of the police action,” council president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan said.

She said the police could have acted improperly on the advice of the assembly’s secretary Abdullah Antong Sabri which was in defiance of the Speaker.
