Patriot: Abdul Hamid a fitting choice as new IGP


KUALA LUMPUR: Patriot has welcomed the appointmen­t of Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador as the new Inspector-General of Police (IGP) taking over from Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun, saying that he is the best choice for the post.

Patriot president BG (Rtd) Datuk Mohamed Arshad Raji, in congratula­ting Abdul Hamid, said his appointmen­t is set to change the image of the force that has been mired in controvers­ies of serious corruption and abuses among some members of the force.

“Abdul Hamid has integrity, a leadership quality that is very significan­t to raise the battered image of the police force and to raise the morale of the men and women in blue.

“The IGP and the police force have very important roles to play in stemming the tide of rising ethno-religious sentiments played by opposition politician­s and in combating the scourge of terror,” he said in statement here yesterday.

“Patriot is ever willing to offer support to the IGP and the police force when necessary. Patriot wishes Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi happy retirement,” he said.
