The Home Minister should reconsider appointing a new chairman for the Advisory Panel

Home Minister reconsider the leader of Advisory Panel

DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw believes that the Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin should reconsider the appointment of a new chairman for the Independent Advisory Panel to investigate the violent incidents during the 428 Bersih 3.0 rally in Kuala Lumpur.

On April 28, 2012, many people thronged KL city, demanding the cleaning up of the electoral rolls of over 12 million voters.

The police claimed that Bersih participants started the violent incidents. Bersih people maintained that a few police personnel punched and kicked some participants including journalists and unleashed tear gas and water cannon without provocations.

The authorities have released their videos and pictures. Bersih followers have done likewise.

The Government appoints the Independent Advisory Panel to be headed by the ExInspector-General of the Police, Tun Haniff. Although he defends his integrity, many suspect that he may not be unbiased.

YB Hisham should reconsider the appointment. The panel must be seen to be fair.
