Police chief Ismail Omar has expressed support for a predecessor, Hanif Mohammad Hanif Omar, who has been appointed to head the independent panel in probing violence during the Bersih 3.0 rally.
Ismail (left) said the police force believes that Hanif will be professional and investigate the matter without bias, citing the fact that police personnel have previously been jailed for offences.
One such example was in the shooting of teeanger Aminulrasyid Amzah, he said today.
"We welcome (Hanif’s appointment). Furthermore, he is not alone on the panel, there are many others on it," he said, also saying the police would cooperate fully with the panel.
