Another incredible story

This time, another incredible story turns up.  It is not a love story, but one of greeds coming from Malaysia. Malaysian policemen are corrupted lots, just like the rest of the politicians and many civil servants over there. But this story is incredible in that these corrupted lots have no shame in exposing their wrong doings to the general public. Incredible, no sense of shame at all !

I’m afraid Malaysia is just going down the drain.  Australian PM Kevin Rudd has described Malaysia as a vibrant democracy. Democracy or democrazy may be thriving and fluorishing in Malaysia, but she is moving backward nowadays.  Democracy is  overrated, IMHO.

 Cop vs cops in Gemas station By SARBAN SINGH (The Star Malaysia)

GEMAS: A policeman has lodged a report against all his colleagues including his superiors allegedly over dissatisfaction on how the monthly bribes from those operating illegal activities was being distributed.

In retaliation, one of his superiors, a sergeant, lodged another police report against the policeman, a lance corporal, for allegedly selling station property to scrap dealers.

A source said the lance corporal, in his 40s, was dissatisfied with his superiors for allegedly taking the lion’s share of the bribes while the rank and file received very little.

“In fact, the complainant claimed that he did not get a sen,” the source said.

The report was lodged earlier this week.

The sergeant, in an apparent tit-for-tat, lodged another report against the lance corporal alleging that he had sold some old wooden and iron furniture from the police station to a dealer.

“His colleagues even know where the dealer is operating from,” the source said.

State police chief Datuk Osman Salleh confirmed that a report has been lodged.

“We are investigating the claims made by the lance corporal. We do not want to make conclusions straightaway as the allegations are serious,” he said.

He said all the policemen were still on duty and have not been asked to go on leave.

He said action would be taken against his men if the claims were true.

It is understood that the Anti-Corruption Agency has also started a probe.
