KUALA LUMPUR: Only 20 per cent of the 96,000-strong police force will be allowed to go on leave this coming Hari Raya.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said yesterday only the leave of all traffic policemen had been frozen.
"Not all leave is frozen. Only that of the traffic policemen," he said after receiving 10,000 Hari Raya goodie packages for the force from Bakti (Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers).
Musa said the force, apart from regular duties and the usual Ops Sikap, would also be assisting the Road Transport Department in Ops Bersih, in which checks on buses are carried out.
Musa received the donation from Bakti president and wife of the prime minister, Datin Seri Jeanne Abdullah.
Another 20,000 packages were given to the armed forces, represented by its chief, Gen Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Zainal, while 1,000 were presented to Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency director-general Admiral Datuk Mohammad Nik.
