    Funeral Procession: Warnings from Police and Pewaris

    Pewaris deputy chairman II Rahimuddin Md Harun told a press conference here that any protest during the procession was inadvisable as it might offend the sensitivities of others.

    I wonder how the logic works. Malaysians protesting police brutality offends the sensitivities of others?

    Deputy IGP: Keep funeral procession trouble-free
    AMPANG JAYA, Jan 27 — Do not provoke or cause trouble.

    That was the warning issued by Deputy Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar to those who wished to take part in the funeral procession of A Kugan, who died while in custody at the Taipan, USJ 8 Subang Jaya police station on Jan 22.

    He said those taking part in the procession from Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) to Bt 14, Puchong, should not provoke racial sentiments that may spark untoward incidents....

    Asked on Majlis Permuafakatan Ummah’s (Pewaris) decision to gather at the UMMC tomorrow to protest the procession, Ismail said: “I would like to make it clear again, don’t take things for granted.”

    Muslim NGO echoes police warning for Kugan’s funeral

    KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 27 — Pewaris, a non-governmental Muslim advocacy group, today appealed to MIC president Datuk Seri Samy Vellu to urge the Indian community not to get involved in any protest demonstrations during tomorrow's funeral procession for A Kugan, a suspect in a car theft case who died while in police custody.

    Pewaris deputy chairman II Rahimuddin Md Harun told a press conference here that any protest during the procession was inadvisable as it might offend the sensitivities of others.

    Even the heavens cried for Kugan

    Even the heavens cried for Kugan.

    The hearse stopped in front of the Chinese school and the pall-bearers carried the coffin on foot for the remaining 400 metres to the cemetery. It started drizzling and soon it was pouring. It seemed that even the heavens were crying for Kugan.

    I was fortunate to catch the procession just as it left USJ for the LDP. There were police outriders leading the way and watching the flank.



    Overhead was a helicopter circling.

    There was a line of cars about a mile long following the hearse.

    At the interchange after Tractors Malaysia, the procession turned left for Jalan Puchong, while I skipped ahead to the next interchange. That allowed me to arrive at Batu 14, Jalan Puchong about 20 minutes before the procession. Quite a number of PKR and DAP leaders were already there (Tony Pua, Teresa Kok, Sivarasa, Dr. Xavier Jayakumar, Gobind Singh Deo.) together with the Barisan Rakyat Bloggers led by RPK, Haris Ibrahim and Zorro.

    and



    the pall-bearers carried the coffin on foot for the remaining 400 metres to the cemetery. It started drizzling and soon it was pouring. It seemed that even the heavens were crying for Kugan.

    But this did not deter those who came to pay their respects. Even though they were soaking wet, they followed the coffin nonetheless, such was the spirit of solidarity with a fellow Malaysia who was so cruelly robbed of his life at such a tender age.

    When the coffin reached the cemetery, the rain suddenly stopped.

    Around 2,000 people from all communities and all walks of life, came to pay their respects.









    The story does not end there. Heads must roll for this dastardly act.

    Dr P Ramasamy: Implement the proposed (IPMC) immediately

    Helicopter overhead, 4 Riot Squad Trucks, about 50 police... These people never learn.

    Kapar MP: Different results in both autopsies
    By Neville Spykerman

    PUCHONG, Jan 28 — Initial results of the second autopsy on Kugan Ananthan, who died mysteriously in police custody on Jan 20, is contrary to the one undertaken by government pathologists, and goes beyond “water in the lungs” as the cause of death, Kapar MP S. Manickavasagam said today........

    Meanwhile several Pakatan Rakyat politicians and lawyers lashed out at police for their excessive force while the family members went to claim his body for the UMMC mortuary and extensive police presence during the entire funeral.

    Lawyer N.Surendren said family members initially had to “negotiate with police” to let them through a police cordon at UMMC to claim the body.

    “This was totally unnecessary as they knew we were coming to claim the body for the funeral, today.


    Subang MP Sivarasa Rasiah said there was an excessive police presence at every stage of the funeral.

    Why was there a need for such a big police presence when all we wanted to do was claim the body and have the funeral.” he asked.

    Meanwhile Penang deputy Chief Minister and Perai state assemblyman Dr P Ramasamy, who was also at the funeral, urged the government to implement the proposed Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPMC) without further delay.

    Let Kugan be the last death in custody and not wait for another case.” he said.

    The Royal Malaysian Police have for far too long been given a free and easy ride in the manner in which they carry out their duties. In the 21st century it is time that their standard operating procedures of detention and interrogation techniques are made transparent.

    For far too long we have been a subservient public accepting excuse and reasons for custodial deaths in our Malaysian police lock-ups.

    In an age where information is readily available and the speed of information has accelerated, the police can hardly be expected to continue to hide behind raw authority whenever something goes wrong.

    Whoever the suspect is, he is merely a suspect and not a convict yet, and even then a convict too is a human being who must be accorded his due natural justice.

    This is but a minimum requirement of a civilised nation.

    The way we see it, the police who use illegal and immoral methods of interrogation are individuals who have gotten lazy, for the real work of an investigator requires diligence and hard work.

    It requires one to look for clues, follow a lead and avail the use of forensics and technology before making an arrest. Only through arming oneself with the required evidence can one get a successful prosecution.

    This must explain why many of the high profile police cases that go to court are thrown out.

    Can one then blame the public which is sceptical of the quality of some members of the police force today?

    This is symptomatic of deteriorating standards in a number of our government agencies?

    This brings to mind the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) that seems to frighten and threaten the Royal Malaysian Police Force to the extent that they said they would vote for the opposition in the last general election.

    With the latest incident of custodial death taking place in a police station in Subang Jaya, the police should have little choice in accepting in full the recommendations to set up the IPCMC.

    It is our hope that this is done by the government with or without the consent and cooperation of the Royal Malaysian Police.

    A. Kugan’s death warrants the codification of the police’s investigation powers

    Malaysia needs an act that will ensure the police respect the basic principles of human rights in line with United Nations Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials, article 2

    Press Statement by Dato’ Chang Ko Youn
    Gerakan Deputy President and Chairman of the Legal and Human Right Bureau

    1. The recent death of A. Kugan at the hands of the police warrants the codification of the police’s investigation powers and it is important for us to seriously evaluate the enactment of a piece of legislation that will codify the current laws on investigation of crimes and the detention of suspects.

    2. Our current law that governs investigation and detention by the police is a variety of acts and the criminal penal code. However, the current protection for suspects is inadequate resulting in a considerable number of suspects losing their lives while under detention.

    3. We need a piece of legislation similar Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 in the United Kingdom which codifies how the police must treat suspects from the time they are detained right up to when they are charged in court. It also covers how police take samples from suspects, identification procedures and specialised codes of practice governing the conduct of the police.

    4. Malaysia needs an act that will ensure the police respect the basic principles of human rights in line with United Nations Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials, article 2 of which provides: “In the performance of their duty, law enforcement officials shall respect and protect human dignity and uphold the human rights of all persons.”

    5. Also, despite the legal requirement that all lock-ups be equipped with CCTVs’, no serious action has been taken on this matter.

    6. Kugan’s death and the many other custodial deaths must be our call to action and it is a momentous opportunity for the BN Government to project its seriousness on defending the rights of all Malaysians.

    7. For too long we have given very wide powers to our enforcement officials resulting in abuse and mismanagement of the power. This does not reflect well on the Government as a whole and we risk the people’s support if we remain inert on this important issue.

    8. We must also ensure that the Special Complaints Commission functions effectively and with real bite if it is approved by Parliament. It is an aberration for the police to be investigating their own alleged misdeeds and that is why I call for the speedy enactment of the Act governing the SCC.
