KUALA LUMPUR, May 13 (Bernama) -- Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador said the presence of Special Branch (SB) officers at Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) media conferences is a normal procedure to ensure order and security.
He said his officers were merely doing their job so that the media conferences could run smoothly, adding that there was nothing more to it.
“Special Branch or not, if it is the Royal Malaysia Police, then it is to ensure security, irrespective of whether they are in uniform or not because we have sworn to protect this country,” he told newsmen here today.
SB personnel were recently barred from joining Warisan media conferences, and Abdul Hamid said he did not even view the matter as an issue in the first place.
