THE crackdown on enforcement officers is needed to get rid of corrupt personnel. Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said without stern action, the Home Ministry’s integrity would be tarnished.
Zahid, who is also home minister, was drawing on the recent crackdown on police personnel.
A total of 21 police personnel from Bukit Aman’s Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department were arrested in connection with drug syndicates, while nine police personnel and four civilians were arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for protecting illegal gambling dens and massage parlours.
