The government has been urged to set up a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) to investigate the controversial allegations made by former attorney-general Tommy Thomas and former inspector-general of police (IGP) Abdul Hamid Bador recently.
Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said he will be calling ministers representing Umno to bring the message to the government for action to be taken.
“The revelations of the two former heads who led two important government organisations are very serious, especially those involving political interference and corruption in the institutions, which are the bastions to defend the supremacy of the constitution, the rule of law and national security,” he said in a statement today.
He said the setting up of the RCI is aimed at speeding up the restoration of trust and confidence of the people in the institutions and system to uphold the rule of law and national security.
Zahid also voiced support for the call by Umno Youth for the government to set up the RCI.
On May 2, in his last media conference as the IGP, Hamid made allegations of political interference in the organisation he headed.
