SHAH ALAM: The police have been urged to investigate the Home Minister for interfering in the appointment of senior officers recently.
Meru assemblyman Mohd Fakhrulrazi Mohd Mokhtar said a viral audio recording involving Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin heard talking about reshuffling of police officers showed “political interference” in the internal affairs of the police force.
Speaking to reporters outside the Shah Alam police headquarters on Friday (April 30) after lodging a police report against Hamzah, Mohd Fakhrulrazi said that the matter also tarnished the image of the police force.
On Friday, Hamzah said that the person in an audio recording talking about a reshuffle in the police force was him, but denied any wrongdoing.
He said the conversation with another person whom he described as “someone very important” took place last year.
“This is an old conversation. Not new. The police need not investigate because I admit it is me.
“I have repeatedly said that. Even if you listen (to the conversation) there is nothing wrong (with what I said),” he said.
