PUTRAJAYA: Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin denies that he meddled in the transfer of senior police officers.
He asserted that all transfers would go through the Police Services Commission and would also be decided by the commission.
"I am aware that some people are saying that I interfered in this, but I assure you this is not the case.
"The decisions are made by the commission based on the majority," he told reporters on Monday (April 12).
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador had earlier said he would meet the Home Minister to explain the transfer order involving senior police officers.
This comes as a message claiming that there was political interference involving a Cabinet minister in connection with the transfer of a police chief had gone viral recently.
When asked if he would be meeting the IGP, Hamzah was non-committal.
