Emotional send-off for Taiping duo

The Human Rights Party (HRP) has asked Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim to table a motion in Parliament calling for a royal commission to probe whether the double shooting of two brothers in Taiping on Thursday was a police’s shoot-to-kill operation.

Party pro-tem secretary-general P Uthayakumar told a press conference in Taiping this afternoon that the opposition should also move a no-confidence motion in Parliament against the police chief.

Uthayakumar said letters have been sent yesterday to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and Home Minister Hishammuddin Husein demanding a royal panel to probe the incident.

However, the press conference was abruptly cut short by Taiping district police chief Yusuf Mohd Diah, who ordered the journalists to disperse as they were hindering traffic flow along the road where the event was held.
