A reader alerted me to the news of this foreign national who was bullied by the authorities: Woman: I was hurt in raid
As usual, this goes to show that the police have free reign to do as they please. They evidently violated procedure when:
1. The police were not in uniform
2. The police did not state the reason of the arrest to the suspect as is stipulated in the procedure
3. The police acted violently
4. The police did not give medical attention to the injuries sustained
In my opinion, everything falls neatly and squarely into the lap of this Chinese national. She was wrongly treated -- pure and simple.
However, I see something wrong in this.
Why did the husband pay RM2,000 to have his wife released? Was it legal? Or was it under-the-counter as usual?
Then I see a purpose for these illegal raids. They are to help these policemen make money from bribes.
