Let Hisham publish the panel report on Amirulrasyid shooting case.
DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw calls on the Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin to try his utmost to publish the findings of the report on the shooting of Aminulrasyid on 26.4.2010.
Hisham's comment today shows that he hesitates. He has to look at the concern of the public over police shooting of civilians. The people don't know the truth. Let them see what actually took place.
Yesterday, an eight-member panel on the police's fatal shooting of 15-year-old Aminulrasyid Amzah met. Apparently, the panel, chaired by Deputy Home Minister Datuk Abu Seman Yusop, comprised former Inspector-General of Police Tun Mohd Hanif Omar, Home Ministry deputy secretary-general Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ab Aziz and former Suhakam commissioners Datuk Seri Mohd Shafee Abdullah, Datuk Dr Denison Jayasooria and Datuk Dr Michael Yeoh.
Also in the panel are crime analyst Kamal Affandi Hashim and Universiti Teknologi Mara deputy VC Assoc Prof Datuk Abdul Halim Sidek.
Hisham is still hoping that people would not talk about this tragic case, keeping his eye on political parties. After all. it is a sensitive case. We can only hope that the public will look at the case objectively. This is where the Home Ministry can help. Make the panel investigation as transparent as possible. The victim's family is asking for a royal commission to ensure that only the truth will come out.
Let the Home Ministry publish the panel findings as soon as possible.
Dr Tan Seng Giaw
