Rela willing to lend muscle to fight against crime

KUALA LUMPUR, July 27 -
The People's Volunteer Corps (Rela), responding to a call by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today, has expressed its willingness to cooperate with the police in efforts to curb crime on the streets.

Najib when announcing the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and the lead ministers for six national key results areas (NKRA) in Putrajaya said he wanted crime on the streets to be reduced by 20 per cent by the end of 2010.

Rela director-general Datuk Zaidon Asmuni said the corps would work hand-in-hand with the police in the matter.

"We will provide sufficient manpower if we were asked to assist ... let's say if the police wanted 100 of our men in an operation to combat crime, we will provide the number asked," he told Bernama when contacted here today.

However, he said the decision whether to ask for Rela's help lay with the Inspector-General of Police. - Bernama

Now why don't they form a 'rela' to clean the street instead? Why are they so eager to pretend like cops?

RELA to the rescue? 

Might as well release all the prisoners in jail. 

Those jokers should be disbanded immediately.

Holy Cow! 

Is Najib for real? The last thing the country needs is a government-sanctioned band of thugs prowling the streets and harassing citizens by imposing their warped moral standards and logic. 

The Rela officers are from the bottom of the barrel and have consistently shown poor judgment and a total lack of accountability for their actions. Giving them a wider jurisdiction will only further damage the credibility of Najib's administration.
