Agencies Tuesday, September 18, 2012

More than 300 complaints were lodged against police officers during the first eight months of this year — up by ten percent compared to the same period last year, a local daily reported yesterday quoting sources with knowledge of official Interior Ministry statistics.

Speaking to Al-Qabas on the condition of anonymity, the sources indicated that disciplinary measures were taken against 50 officers found guilty of the accusations, including nine policemen who served jail terms for abuse of power.

And while indicating that investigations are still ongoing in some of the reported cases, the sources said that there have been cases in which complaints were shelved due to lack of evidence.

Furthermore, the sources noted that at least 1200 officers failed to report to report to work without an excuse since the beginning of 2012.
