15 immigration officers sacked over myIMMs sabotage

They, and 14 others who were suspended, are said to have been involved in sabotaging the implementation of the Malaysian Immigration System.

SEPANG - Fifteen Immigration Department officers have been dismissed for alleged involvement in sabotaging the implementation of the Malaysian Immigration System (myIMMs).

The Star Online reported that another 14 officers had been suspended from work while eight officers had been subjected to a freeze in salary raises pending investigations.

Immigration Director-General Sakib Kusmi said those terminated had served for between six months to 15 years.

“We also took drastic action by transferring 63 officers out of our headquarters in Putrajaya and we have also prepared a new name list for those who will be based in the airports,” he told a press conference at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The report quoted Sakib as saying another 20 personnel, believed to have been involved directly or indirectly in sabotaging the Immigration system, were being monitored by the department’s intelligence division.
