The Assault of Chang Jiun Haur – Views From Both Parties

This is again extracted online and it is about what the SUHAKAM has to say and also what the police has to say. Here’s what SUHAKAM demand to the police. Extracted from New Straits Times :

Bandar Mahkota Cheras: Suhakam wants police to explain use of force.

KUALA LUMPUR: A member of the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) wants an inquiry into the alleged use of force by the police and Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) personnel during the Bandar Mahkota Cheras fracas on Tuesday night.

Commissioner Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam said a 21-year-old mechanic, Chang Jiun Huar, was in hospital for injuries to his face and mouth when he and a friend were dragged from their car and beaten up by about 30 police and FRU men who alleged that the victim had tried to run one of them down with his vehicle.

Chang was at the wheel with his sister and two friends.

“The victim told me they were just passing by the place after having a drink at Bandar Mahkota Cheras when suddenly their car was surrounded by policemen and FRU personnel.

“He said the men started to kick his car, demanding that they get out, before they smashed the driver’s side window.

“Chang and the others were dragged out of the car and he and a friend was assaulted,” Siva said yesterday.

Siva asked why none of the policemen were injured if their claims that Chang had tried to ram into them were true.

“Even if Chang had indeed tried to ram into the policemen, it still does not justify the way he was treated.”

Chang is now warded at the Seremban Hospital.

“Chang will bear the scar from the attack, both physically and emotionally, for the rest of his life.

“It is a high price to pay for a young man who just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

“I have tried to talk to the Kajang police to get an explanation but could not do so as the officers were busy.”

“I will try to arrange another meeting soon and demand a detailed explanation from them about what exactly transpired on that day.”

He said he would propose at a meeting of Suhakam on June 9 that the commission start its own investigation.

And this is what the police has to say, also from New Straits Times :

Bandar Mahkota Cheras: No excessive force used by FRU, says deputy IGP


The police today maintained that there was no unnecessary excessive force used by the Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) personnel on a resident during a protest at Bandar Mahkota Cheras on Tuesday night.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Ismail Omar said allegations that the police used brutality during the incident were totally baseless.

“We received many calls from various parties to investigate the incident and we are carrying out a thorough probe into the matter. But I would like to stress that the FRU personnel deployed on that day followed procedures.

“But if we find any personnel involved in misusing their power, they will face the music. We will treat everyone fairly,” he told reporters after the passing-out parade of probationary inspectors at the Police Training Centre (Pulapol) here today.

Ismail was commenting on the call by the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) for an inquiry into an incident where 21-year-old Chang Jiun Haur was allegedly beaten up by several FRU personnel after three men and a woman were said to have knocked into them.

He said the police would also arrange for a meeting with Suhakam to explain the real scenario on what had transpired. 

Ismail said the police would not restrain anyone who witnessed the incident, to come forward and assist the police.

“If they have vital information and evidence please come forward and assist us. Do not hesitate,” he said, adding that nobody was above the law.

Chang alleged that he was stopped by several FRU personnel who broke the windscreen of his car before assaulting him.

The incident occurred during a protest where Bandar Mahkota Cheras residents removed concrete barricade constructed by Grand Saga, the concessionaire of the Cheras-Kajang Highway which closed an access road into their housing area. — BERNAMA

So you decide for yourself whose side are you on. Personally I am on Chang’s side. First, I don’t think there is a need to assault 4 unarmed citizens even if what the police says about them ramming the police is true. Second, no excessive force is used? Look at how badly hurt that fella is! If thats not excessive force, I think we need to redefine excessive. Third, I believe if the police are well trained, it does not need 20 of them to apprehend 4 unarmed people, even if they were in a car. And lastly, if they intend to ram the police, the best chance would be when the police surrounds them! It would be like bowling striking down the pins!
