Deputy Inspector-General of Police Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay is ready to be investigated if there are allegations of misconduct against him.
Ayob Khan said he was aware that there had been various allegations against him, following his firm stance in discharging his responsibilities as the second-in-command of the Royal Malaysia Police.
“Go ahead, investigate me and also all my family members, I have no problem,” he said when appearing as a panellist at an integrity forum in conjunction with the Farmers’ Organisation Authority Integrity Day 2023 today.
Ayob Khan, however, did not elaborate on the allegations against him.
He said every leader should have the courage to reprimand or take action against the officers under him.
“Just because you want to be revered and remain popular, you put aside your real responsibilities so that you do not get sidelined by the people around you.
“If there is any misconduct involving officers or personnel, especially corruption, I will not tolerate it and action will be taken. As long as I am entrusted with the existing responsibility, I will fulfil it,” he added.
He said among others who were similarly targeted was Dang Wangi police chief ACP Noor Dellhan Yahaya who “certain parties were trying to replace with their own people”.
Ayob Khan said prior to taking over as Johor police chief in 2020, he had been “advised” by certain police officers to turn a blind eye to “certain things” that were unlawful.
