The Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris has challenged Senator Isa Misau, who accused him of having an affair with a junior female colleague, to prove him otherwise.

Idris asked Misau to cite the section of the Police Act and Regulation which forbids a police officer from marrying another police officer.

He stated this in a written defence he presented through his lawyer, Dr. Alex Iziyon (SAN), to the Senate ad-hoc committee investigating the allegations against him by the senator.

He specifically asked the senator to cite a section of the law that prevents him from having a romantic relationship with a policewoman.

The police boss recalled that Misau’s father married the lawmaker’s mother while in service.

On the allegation that Idris was having affairs with two female officers who also got questionable promotions as a result, Iziyon said, “this allegation is laughable and showed lack of understanding of the provisions of the Police Act and regulation.”

He said, “until he brings such section of the Police Act, it will amount to discussing the Inspector-General of Police’s private life, which ordinarily should not have been entertained on the floor of the Senate.

“It might be appropriate to remind the senator, whose mother retired from the police as an Inspector of Police and a father who retired from the police as an Assistant Inspector-General of Police, that the Inspector-General of Police is a Moslem and, according to Islamic Law, can marry four wives provided he can love them equally".
