GEORGE TOWN: A human rights activist has alleged that Malaysian police lack the diligence to pursue cases of abduction to their resolution.

Perpetrators could walk away with impunity, said Rama Ramanathan of Citizens Against Enforced Disappearances (Caged).

He said he was not surprised that an Australian legislator had complained of “apathy” and “incompetence” in describing the response of Malaysian police to the case of a missing grandmother from Adelaide who was later found dead.

Rama said even the Malaysian Human Rights Commission (Suhakam) had found the police to be “lackadaisical” in looking into cases of missing persons.

He said Suhakam had also found that police officers had given false evidence during some hearings in cases of suspected abduction.
