PETALING JAYA - Former Special Branch deputy director DCP Datuk Abdul Hamid Bador who was abruptly removed from the police force and seconded to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) in August, claimed today that he does not fear for his life although he faces an assassination threat.
"The risk of being shot is very real knowing the fact that I have crossed the line into forbidden territory where the perpetrators fear so much of going to jail. Being out in the open is always a risk to me. I can get punched by an overzealous supporter of the state. I do take steps to watch my back vigilantly and frequently change my travel routines but I do not fear for my life. I want to take them head on. Face to face. Only cowards would shoot people from the back." he said.
Asked if he intended to lodge a police report, he said: "I am a police officer, so I 'report' to myself."
Abdul Hamid added that he felt "lonely" fighting his cause as many including his peers and subordinates have turned their backs on him.
Abdul Hamid had on Aug 23 taken the government to task by questioning several irregularities including issues related to 1MDB after his secondment to the PMO just days earlier. – Sundaily
