IGP promises full transparency over Navy deaths probe

IPOH: Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun has assured that the investigations into the deaths of two Royal Malaysian Navy personnel and injuries to two others in Sungai Wangi will be done with full transparency.
However, the Inspector-General of Police said the investigations were still ongoing.
"We are still waiting for the forensics report, CCTV recordings and the chemical report to be prepared.
"Once the investigation paper is completed, we will submit it to the Attorney-General's Chambers for the next course of action," he told a press conference after attending the state-level Pingat Jasa Pahlawan Negara presentation ceremony at the state secretariat building here on Thursday.
He said the police had recorded statements from 35 witnesses, including eight others that were held in the same detention room where the deaths occurred.
"We have also seized 57 items, including CCTV recordings, for investigation," he said.
It was reported that two Navy men who were held in a detention room in Sungai Wangi, Sitiawan, died last Friday.
Post-mortem reports on both men have shown signs of injuries and alleged abuse.
Two other Navy men have since lodged reports of alleged abuse and are still being treated at the Navy hospital in Manjung.
Fuzi said seven men, aged between 29 and 37, have been arrested and remanded over the two cases.
He said five men have been remanded until Saturday for the murder case, while two others have been remanded until Friday over the second case.
Fuzi added that there were two suspects who were implicated in both cases.
