DAP leader calls for police to use body cameras after Penang raid A DAP leader has revived the call for the police to be equipped with body cameras after a raid at a record store in Georgetown, Penang.
Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng criticized the police for detaining three individuals who filmed the raid, describing it as an act of oppression.
The purchase of body cameras by the police was scheduled for 2021 but has yet to be implemented. The government approved an allocation of RM30 million for this purpose in 2021.
Home Minister Saifuddion Nasution Ismail said the procurement process was in progress and instructed the ministry’s Secretary-General to follow up. Lim argues that if the public is not allowed to film police raids, body cameras should be installed on police officers on duty.
