KLANG: The recent order to transfer senior police officers is nothing extraordinary, says Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador.

The Inspector-General of Police said the command and control of the police force was under his purview and he would be meeting Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin to explain his decision.

“I issued the transfer order involving senior police officers for the benefit of all and it is not an extraordinary move.

“But while I’m on leave, there was an order for the transfer to be delayed, ” he told a press conference after the launch of the Selangor Police’s Taman Angkat Amanita event in Bandar Puteri yesterday.

A viral message had claimed there was political interference in connection with the transfers.

Abdul Hamid said he would discuss the transfer delay with Hamzah.
