Gov’t and party are different: ex-CID chief


Harakahdaily, 09 August 2012

Aug 9: Former Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department chief Fauzi Shaari has laughed off a proposal by prime minister Najib Razak for police to take oath of allegiance to the government.

“The police must know how to differentiate between government and party. In voting, it is their right to choose the better party,” he said.

Fauzi, who recently joined PAS, described the call as unnecessary, and said if police treated their job as a religious obligation, they would put in their best efforts in their work.

At a buka puasa event, Najib again invoked his now infamous catchphrase "You help me, I help you" by calling the police to take an oath of loyalty.

“If the government helps PDRM (Malaysia Royal Police Force), then PDRM will help the government and the country. We help each other to bring the country towards a safer, harmonious and excellent future,” Najib was quoted as saying.

The remark drew strong reaction from northern-based Malay empowerment group TERAS who said it was Najib’s hidden instruction to the police to vote for BN.

“So, the oath is not so much about PDRM promising to be loyal to the government but a plea to all top officers to ensure that the votes from lower officers will go to BN,” said TERAS chairman Mohd Azmi Abdul Hamid.

PAS Youth information chief Riduan Mohd Nor said Najib’s latest move signified the BN government's fear of the increasing support for Pakatan Rakyat amid a slew of announcements of former top civil servants joining PAS.

“It has made a big impact to UMNO-BN for the 13th general election,” he added.
