KUALA LUMPUR – “There are many things that I want to do to, some are confidential and personal and I am not going to share them,” said Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun who is going for his compulsory retirement as the Inspector-General of Police (IPG) tomorrow.
He said, the job as a police is full of challenges and he was constantly being tested by challenging cases throughout his 35 years of service.
“There is nothing not challenging. Always challenging. I’m grateful that I can cross the finishing line,” he said in a media conference after the handing over ceremony of the IGP’s post between him and Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador at the Police Training Centre (PULAPOL) in Jalan Semarak this morning. The event was witnessed by Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
Also present at the ceremony was the Secretary-General of Home, Datuk Seri Alwi Ibrahim.
In conjunction with that event, the handing over of post for the Special Branch Director by Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador to Datuk Ramli Hassan who would be acting for the position as the director also took place.
When asked about the first thing he would do after his retirement, Mohamad Fuzi said that he will be busier after this.
“All these while, as a police, I work from morning until late night. After this, I will do work which would be beneficial for myself.
“There are many personal and confidential things, I will not share them with you,” he said while stating that he has given a durian treat to the senior police officers.
Earlier, during his final speech as the IGP, Mohamad Fuzi also reflected on the passing of his beloved wife last December 2017.
“Reflecting on those tough moments that I had, it is still fresh in my memories when I was tested by the heart-wrenching trial.
“I was still new in my job as the Inspector-General of Police when I lost my beloved wife.
“Nevertheless, I am grateful that I was accompanied by my friends and the whole police force. They never fail to shower me with words of encouragements and supports. Without their support and help, I would have been crippled and tumbled in my sorrows,” he said.
Meanwhile, Abdul Hamid who will begin his job officially tomorrow chose not to elaborate on his appointment when asked by the journalists.
“Thank you, but this is not my session. I would like to give the opportunity to Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi to talk (about his retirement),” he said briefly. – MalaysiaGazette
