Police identified cop involved in leaked video of handcuffed singer (VIDEO)

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 22 — Selangor police have identified the policeman involved in the case of recording and spreading the video clip of a singer who was singing while being handcuffed in police custody.
Selangor police chief Datuk Abdul Samah Mat said the police were still continuing with the investigation to identify other officers and men involved in the case.
The investigation would be completed as soon as possible and presented to the Deputy Public Prosecutor for further action, he said in a statement, here today.
Abdul Samah said an internal investigation in terms of misconduct and compliance of the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) was also being carried out by the Department of Integrity and Standard Compliance (JIPS) of the Selangor Contingent of the Royal Malaysia Police.
The case was being investigated under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, he said.
Abdul Samah also gave an assurance that a transparent investigation would be carried out without protecting anyone and internal action according to disciplinary regulations would be taken against the police personnel involved.
The video, with a duration of one minute and 23 seconds and showing the male singer singing one of his popular songs, had been spread on the Facebook social website which was also criticised by various quarters who described it as an act of bullying and degrading the singer.
Yesterday, the singer and his girlfriend were detained by police on suspicion of possessing drugs during a raid on a house in Taman Keramat, here.
Following the raid, a plastic package believed to contain about 1.2g of heroine was found in a room. They were remanded for four days.
Meanwhile, the president of the 1Malaysia Artiste Foundation, Datuk Irwan Shah Abdullah, or better known as D.J Dave, said that the act of spreading the video was unfair to the artistes as their image was also tarnished by such an act.
“Don’t do that because artistes are also normal human being, the question of his involvement in drugs should be left to the law to determine whether he was guilty or otherwise,” he said when contacted by Bernama.
Another singer, Zainal Abidin Mohamad or better known as Zainal Headwind said the video was most shameful to the artistes because as someone known to the public, they should not be exposed in such a way that could bring down their integrity.
“It was an abuse that was shameful. Have they forgotten the family of the singer who are also ashamed by this act,” he told Bernama. — Bernama
