SB officers' job to gather intelligence for UMNO rather than fighting crime

SB officers Former Bukit Aman CID director Fauzi Shaari has called on the police to cut back on the Special Branch and Federal Reserve Unit so that more manpower can be channeled towards fighting actual crime.

Speaking to news portal Malaysiakini, Fauzi, who headed the CID from 2005-2006, said the department was understaffed, adding that even during his tenure he felt that its manpower should have doubled.

"As it is, the CID looks like it is unable to handle the workload because there are too many investigations.

"So why can't we cut back on units such as the FRU, field and marine police," he was quoted as saying in an exclusive interview with the portal.

While acknowledging SB officers' job to gather intelligence in the interest of public order, Fauzi however pointed out that the situation in the country had now changed and the unit no longer needed high number of personnel.

"We have to admit that in the past, (the situation) was more serious and with more threats. But now, the people have changed a lot," said Fauzi, who joined PAS in May and who had also served as state police chief for Selangor and Sarawak.

It was recently revealed that despite a 28 per cent increase in the size of the police force over the past decade, only 8 percent of police personnel have been assigned for crime-related tasks.

Based on statistics provided by the Home ministry, DAP's Bukit Bendera member of parliament Liew Chin Tong lamented that only 9,346 of the total 105,929 uniformed police force were put under the CID.' job to gather intelligence for UMNO rather than fighting crime
