Your Gecko in Phnom Penh Post of Feb. 12 - 25 need not to pass without support. After
reading your article, I very much concur with the facts as stated by you concerning
To my suggestion what brought the bad image of CivPol is due to poor leadership and
command. Example: you find that someone is given a responsibility of leading or assigned
to investigate a case and from the way he asks questions and compiles his report,
proves contrary to his profession. Not only that others depends on the interpreters
to compile their reports. To be amused further, masters who does the negative work
are calling themselves captains, majors, lieutenants, lieutenant colonels, etc.,
portraying the fake of their ranks.
These are professional policemen who should be given a chance to lead but the work
is done on who is who from the top contradicting UNTAC stand "everybody is equal."
For the CivPol to win a high reputation I suggest that CivPol disregard ranks and
give responsibility to whoever is capable.
Those who can write and speak fluent English should be given responsibility to lead.
