PETALING JAYA: Police cannot be trusted to investigate themselves in the latest death of a 42-year-old security guard, says DAP’s Charles Santiago.

According to the Klang MP, there is something amiss as a report against Sivabalan Subramaniam was made in 2014, but the police only acted on it seven years later.

It was previously reported that Sivabalan was called in by the police over an extortion case that took place in 2016.

“This discrepancy, plus police saying that the deceased died of a heart attack less than an hour after he was arrested, warrants an investigation and inquest,” he said in a statement.

Santiago’s comments came after he visited Sivabalan’s family with Selayang MP William Leong Jee Keen earlier today to extend his condolences.
“It was heartbreaking, especially to see his mother who is grieving the loss of her son.”

However, Santiago stressed that the inquest must be led by experts in the National Human Rights Commission (Suhakam) and Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (EAIC).
