About 100 people involved in Immigration system sabotage, says minister

PUTRAJAYA - About 100 people are suspected of being involved in the possible sabotage of the Malaysian Immigration System (myIMMs).

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, announcing this today, said some have been detained to assist in police investigation.

"Most of them are mostly immigration officers and syndicate members.

"Based on a three-month surveillance, there is no evidence to suggest that top level officers in the Immigration Department are involved.

"Most of those allegedly involved were officers from the support groups and those in the mid-level," he told reporters after presenting the Yang di-Pertuan Agong scholarships to 10 recipients who will pursue their studies in science and technology, economy and law.

Zahid, who is also Home Minister, said the civil servants involved had been working with the government for between six months and six years.

"They are believed to have been involved in sabotaging the myIMMs for financial gains and have been doing it for the past six months to two years," he added.
