Ahmad-Zahid-HamidiPUTRAJAYA: The Home Ministry is not ruling out the possibility that its top-ranked officers are involved in human trafficking and the passport forgery syndicate detected at the KL International Airport (KLIA) and klia2.

Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also Home Minister, said investigations into the syndicate’s activities would continue to be carried out until the syndicate was totally quashed and all of its members were brought to justice.

“I have instructed the police (to carry out the investigations) after receiving public complaints and media reports on several officers being involved in passport forgery.

“Investigations have been carried out over the past two months and it was found that several officers had indeed committed the offence and tarnished the image of the department and the ministry,” he told reporters after opening the 7th National Civil Service Guidance Programme (Akrab) Convention here today.

Zahid said this in response to the media report on the syndicate detected to have turned KLIA and klia2 as their transit centre for Sri Lankan immigrants before they were sent to a third country.
