IGP: Footage of Neelofa and husband in Langkawi show them 'free and easy', not at work

PETALING JAYA: The police will call in Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor and her newlywed husband Haris Ismail to give their statements over viral pictures and videos of them spending time in Langkawi.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said the images and footage uploaded on the couple's social media platforms appeared to show breaches of standard operating procedures (SOP).

"Her (Neelofa) presence together with her husband went against the SOP and we will take action.

"For cases like this, the proper police SOP is to open an investigation paper and she will be called in for a statement," he was quoted as saying by Sinar Harian on Sunday (April 4).

Abdul Hamid had earlier launched a police K9 section in Langkawi.

He said the investigation officer would find out if the couple's activities on the island were part of business matters.

"They will have to answer. But the pictures look free and easy ... which is not allowed.

"This is because she came from an area under the conditional movement control order to another under the recovery MCO," he said.

Earlier, the Brickfields district police confirmed that a permit was given to Neelofa and three others to go to Langkawi for work-related matters.
