The Don and his deputy ‘cold storaged’ in JPA pool
PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Wahid Md Don and Yusof Abu Bakar are no longer the director-general and deputy director-general of the Immigration Department.
Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan said the two have been moved to the Public Service Department and were now directly answerable to PSD director-general Tan Sri Ismail Adam.
“What we are doing is in accordance with the rules and procedures. We must be fair to them,” he told a press conference after opening a seminar on increasing Malaysia’s competitiveness here yesterday.
Sidek said as Wahid would no longer be carrying out duties of the Immigration director-general, an acting director-general would be appointed soon.
“We are in the midst of selecting a suitable candidate, a person of integrity,” he said.
Sidek, however, declined to comment when asked if the duo would later be asked to go on leave or be suspended when investigations are under way.
Wahid was released on a RM150,000 bail by a Kajang magistrate’s court on Monday, five days after he was arrested for his alleged involvement with six others, including two prominent businessmen, in the issuance of visas for foreign workers.
Yusof and his brother-in-law were also arrested to assist the Anti-Corruption Agency in a graft probe. – The Star
