JOHOR BARU: The Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) fully supports the move by the police to arrest 16 police officers and personnel for dealings with drug syndicates and underworld figures.
MCPF senior vice-chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye said police officers should be disciplined, committed in their fight against crime and honour the pledge they have taken.
"The drug menace is the number one public enemy to a society and the action of the officers involved was a big disappointment.
"Stiff action should be taken against the corrupt police officers," Lee said in response to a question on the recent announcement by Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Noor Rashid Ibrahim on the major reshuffle in Bukit Aman's Narcotics Department.
Lee was speaking to reporters after launching the state-level World Health and Safety Day at the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in Senai here.
