Why We Need an Independent Police Commission

Dato' Dr Gurdial Singh Nijar, Consultant Lawyer at Sreenevasan Advocates & Solicitors | Senator Datuk Paul Low

Why We Need an Independent Police Commission

S.Balamurugan bled at the mouth and vomited in court when he was brought before a magistrate for his remand hearing. It was ordered that he be released and sent to the hospital immediately. But instead, he was taken back to the police station where he died shortly after. This direct defiance of the court order caused a man his life. And yet, no one is to answer for it. The call for an independent commission to monitor our police for better transparency and to uphold integrity, is needed now more than ever. We discuss with lawyer Gurdial Singh to see if we're getting any closer to making this happen.
