Kit Siang to demand apology from cabinet to Aminulrasyid’s family

DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang is calling on the cabinet to formally apologize to family of Aminulrasyid Amzah, the 14 year old boy who was shot by the police recently where he said that he will help the family in seeking the apology from those involved and will raise the issue in the cabinet. He said “I will go a step further and call on the Cabinet at its weekly meeting tomorrow to formally apologise to Aminulrasyid’s family and nation for the trigger-happy police killing of 14-year-old Aminulrasyid and measures to end all police shooting deaths,” Kit Siang added that “Specificially, the IGP, CPO and the Home Ministry also owe an apology to 15-year-old Azamuddin, who was in the vehicle when Aminul was killed at the steering wheel with a bullet to the back of his head.

It is a clear defamation that both the teenagers were described by the police as ‘robbery suspects’ in a vehicle with a parang, when there were no evidence whatsoever to support such preposterous allegations. Scrap the joke of the special panel headed by the Deputy Home Minister Datuk Abu Bakar Seman Yusop and instead take the bold step of setting up the commission to recommend measures which will bring an end to all these shootings. If the Najib government is to take the first step to restore public confidence in the police as well as the whole system of governance under his premiership, then the time has come to establish the IPCMC. There can be no argument that the five-year delay in the implementation of the key recommendation of the Police Royal Commission in 2005 has resulted in further deterioration of police standards of accountability and transparency. If the IPCMC had been in place for the past five years, Aminulrasyid would still be alive today.”


PDRM has shown no remorse in this case as they are still not sure how to. Somehow, they have to come out and explain sooner or later.
