Independent Police Complaints & Misconduct Commission (IPCMC)

Deaths evoke human feelings. Deaths in police lockup give rise to public reactions. Since 2000, 219 cases of lockup deaths have been reported. The police should release the actual figure.

Five lockup deaths in the last five months arouse public fury. The Government Cabinet agrees to set up an Independent Police Complaints & Misconduct Commission (IPCMC). Will it work? People should watch out for conditions imposed on it by the Government.

For some years, the existing Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission gives some people confidence. A few insist that it should work. But, the public have not seen its effective enforcement. Will IPCMC end up in the same way?
