JOHOR BARU: The immigration officer caught on camera assaulting a foreigner over the counter in Wisma Persekutuan here Wednesday (May 30) morning will face disciplinary action.

"We have since removed the officer from the front desk," said Johor Immigration Department director Datuk Rohaizi Bahari.

He said that such behaviour would not be tolerated, but did not specify what form of disciplinary action would be taken against the officer.

Rohaizi added that the incident happened at about 9am Wednesday (May 30) at the immigration office in Wisma Persekutuan.

In the 10-second video, the immigration officer can be seen hitting a foreigner on the head and forcing his hand onto a scanner, while continuously berating him.

The video went viral almost immediately.

However, it is unclear why the officer lost his cool and acted in this manner.
