The next time you are stopped by persons who claimed they are
plainclothes police, you are under no obligation to answer their
questions or follow their orders, lawyers told Malaysiakini today.
"Policeman who is not wearing his uniform does not have the authority
to stop anyone," lawyer and human rights activist Sivarasa Rasiah said.


Sivarasa was commenting on the alleged gang-rape of an
18-year-old Uni student by four men claiming to be police officers on
New Year's Eve. The girl said that her car was stopped in Taman Tun Dr
Ismail in Kuala Lumpur and were asked by the men to open the car
bonnet. She was then told that she had committed an offence and ordered
to follow the men to a police
station. The girl was driven in her
car along the North-South expressway to the Tapah-Cameron Highlands
road before she was raped in an oil palm estate.

This
incident, and many others, have sparked confusion over the procedures
which motorists must follow when flagged down by the police. The most
common problem is that most people take instructions without
determining if the other person is really a cop, "lawyer Annie Santiago
said.

However, if you are stopped by a uniformed policeman,
then you are required to stop. But you need not get out of the car
because you are not expected to do so, Santiago said. He other rule to
follow is to provide your identity card only when you are asked to do
so. "Even then, you should get his ID first to confirm if he is a cop.
There is no harm in calling the relevant police station to verify if he
is supposed to be on duty that day," Sivarasa said.

Both
lawyers said that motorists should never follow an officer to the
police station unless one is under arrest. "If you are not sure, and
your instincts tell you that something is wrong, then drive off to the
nearest police station and lodge a report," Sivarasa said.
In
response to the alleged gang-rape of the 18-year-old, Women's Aid
Organisation executive-secretary Ivy Josiah called on the police to
launch an education program to teach the public about their rights to
prevent them from being victimised by bogus police officers.

Procedures to follow in the event you are stopped by uniformed police Officers while driving.

Stop the car and wind down your window.
If the police officers ask for your documents, request to see their IDs first.
If you are satisfied about their identity, ask them if you are being summoned, and for what offence.
Produce your identity card and driver's license and wait to collect your summon ticket.
In the event that the police officers ask you to follow them to the police station:
Ask if you are under arrest and for what offence.
If you are not under arrest, you have the right to leave.
In the event you are flagged down by persons you believe could be plainclothes police:
Do not stop because plainclothes police officers do not have the authority to stop you.
Drive to the nearest police station and lodge a report. (The same procedure applies to pedestrians)
In the event the police come to your house:
Do not let them in before checking their IDs.
If you are not satisfied, phone the nearest police station and confirm if they had been sent to your house.
You are under no obligation to allow them into the house if they don't have a search warrant.
Do not go with them if you are not under arrest.

In the event persons who claimed to be plainclothes police come to your
house:
Do not let him in because they do not have the authority to do so.
Lodge a report at the nearest police station.
