Inspector General of Royal Malaysia Police (IGP) Mohamad Fuzi Harun will be retiring on May 4 as he will turn 60.
He joined the force in 1984 as an ASP cadet. In September 2017, he was appointed as the 11th IGP by former Prime Minister Najib Razak after his predecessor Khalid Abu Bakar retired.
Looking at Fuzi Harun’s top issues, he made his farewell visit to Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. In return, Tun Mahathir thanked him for his service.
However, it has been a rocky last month for the IGP. He was busy countering the people who made seditious remarks against royalty. He launched a probe against Facebook page called Sabah-Sarawak Merdeka for insulting the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
Besides that, human activist group Suhakam revealed their reports on missing persons, namely activist Amri Che Mat and pastor Raymond Koh. The reports claimed that Bukit Aman Special Branch was involved in their disappearance, which is led by the IGP.
Both Amri and Raymond was heavily linked with Fuzi Harun, appearing at the top positions of Fuzi Harun’s top persons list.
Prime Minister Tun Mahathir also commented on the issue, urging that investigation on the Special Branch is to be conducted after Fuzi’s retirement to avoid conflict of interest.
It was reported that acting Deputy IGP Abdul Hamid Bador will be the 12th IGP.
