Corruption–the main reason for organized crime and crime syndicates

Preventive laws were never effective in fighting organised crime.

Malaysian Bar president Christopher Leong said organised crime and criminal syndicates were present in Malaysia even when there were preventive detention laws under the Emergency Ordinance (EO) and Internal Security Act (ISA).

“We have long had illegal gambling and bookies.

“They did not just come about or flourish after the repeal of the EO and ISA,” he added refuting Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar’s statement that the country needs new preventive detention without trial powers to fight organised crime.

Leong said corruption was the main reason for the success of organised crime and crime syndicates.

Organised crime and syndicates flourish whenever and wherever there is rampant corruption within the law enforcement agencies,” he said.

He added this was why Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) fought against graft in order to eradicate organised crime and crime syndicates.

“We do not need to re-introduce draconian preventive detention-without-trial laws to combat organised crime.

“We just need to be extremely serious about our fight against corruption in our law enforcement institutions,” he said.
