Woman in viral video wants better SOP from cops
Kogee Sinniah, who claims police failed to help her in a road bullying incident, says there must be a better procedure to deal with people in distress.
Kogee Sinniah wants police to implement a better system when dealing with people in distress.
PETALING JAYA: The woman in a viral video who claimed a policeman at a station in Cheras did not help her when she was harassed by a group of men in another car, has called for a better procedure for police in dealing with people in distress.
Kogee Sinniah said the police needed to come up with a better standard operating procedure (SOP) in their dealings with members of the public who needed their help.
âI am not taking what happened to me as an individual matter, I am looking at the bigger picture.
âThis is not an individual matter. Basically, as a country, what is the system that we have created to support the people?
âToday it is me, how about tomorrow? There will be other people,â she told FMT in response to Kuala Lumpur police chief Mazlan Lazimâs assurance that an investigation would be carried out.
Mazlan had said appropriate action would be taken against the policeman involved if he was found to have failed in his duties.
However, Kogee said a proper procedure was needed, not just an investigation on the matter.
Last night, she uploaded a five-minute video on Facebook where she claimed a car with four young men had blocked her path.
She said police personnel had not helped her although she had been near a police station and blared her car horn.
The incident occurred as she was on her way home after picking up her son from training at 10pm.
Fearing for her safety and that of her son, Kogee called the police to report the situa tion and decided to drive to a police station.
However, she said a policeman had refused to let her drive into the police station compound.
Kogee claimed the policeman also reprimanded her and told her to speak ânicelyâ.
Three people, aged about 18, have been picked up to help in investigations into the case, which has been filed under Section 506 of the Penal Code which deals with criminal intimidation.
Commenting on the arrest, Kogee said: âWe need to educate people that road-bullying is wrong. This is another reason why I made the video.â
WAO: If we canât feel safe at a police station, where can we?
