Police will probe the revelation by Special Branch that more than 80 per cent of enforcement officers at the border are corrupt, said Deputy Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tunku Jaafar.
“Now that this has been uncovered, swift action must be taken by Bukit Aman’s Integrity and Standards Compliance Department,” he said after attending an awards presentation ceremony at a hotel here yesterday.
Noting that what happened in Perlis was considered a wake-up call for all agencies involved in securing the country’s border, Dr Wan Junaidi said the Home Ministry would also investigate the matter.
“Information and intelligence collected by Special Branch is not hard evidence to bring the cases to court,” he said, adding that he had yet to verify the Special Branch report.
