MALACCA, Thurs: The Malacca Bar Committee, led by Ng Kong Peng, paid a courtesy call to the Malacca Police Chief, Datuk Mortadza Nadzerene. Some high ranking members of the Malacca police force were also present at the meeting.

In his welcoming address, Datuk Mortadza said that lawyers are part of the criminal justice system and that the police and members of the Bar should work together to fight crime in Malacca. At the moment, Malacca ranks 6th in the country in terms of crime rate.

On that note, Datuk Mortadza said that the police will support the Legal Aid Sub Committee’s programme in conducting talks in secondary schools on issues of crime prevention. He said that it is important to educate school children and encourage them to stay away from crime.

During the brief meeting, Fatima Tahir Ali, the Chairperson of the Legal Aid Sub Committee, presented a plaque to Datuk Mortadza as a token of the Bar’s appreciation for the support and contribution by the police to school projects during the recent Legal Aid and Law Awareness campaign.
