Immigration officers using violence on detainees face stern action

The Immigration Department says it has taken immediate action to investigate the issue reported by The Guardian news portal.
Immigration-detainPUTRAJAYA: The Immigration Department will not hesitate to take disciplinary action against officers who use violence against detainees at its detention depots.

Referring to The Guardian news portal report yesterday over the allegation, it said it had taken immediate action to investigate the matter.
“If the investigation finds the officer guilty of such conduct, the department will not hesitate to take disciplinary action based on the Public Officers Regulations (Conduct and Discipline) Amendment 2002,” the department said in a statement here today.
Several local media outlets had quoted The Guardian’s reports on Rohingyas under detention receiving unsatisfactory service over provisions of food and drink as well as allegations of depot officials using violence on them.
The department said food and drinks at detention depots were handled by contractors appointed by the home ministry, adding that detainees were given food and drink four times daily while those with health problems were sent to a clinic or hospital.
Meanwhile, the department viewed seriously the issue of detainee deaths in the depots, most of which were due to critical illnesses or infectious diseases with which the detainees were inflicted before being placed in immigration detention depots. -FMT
