BATU PAHAT: Police has once again denied it was monitoring the private communication devices, emails and telephone of Johor Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim (TMJ).

Deputy Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Noor Rashid Ibrahim said at the moment, the police was concentrating on activities that concerned with the security of the country like extremist groups.

“I would like to reiterate that we are not monitoring any of Tunku Ismail’s communication devices as there are a lot of other things that we need to do like monitoring kidnapping and extremist groups and Daesh....these are the ones that need to be monitored.

“We never conduct any monitoring unless it involves the security of the country which requires us to do so,” said Noor Rashid at a press conference at Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM), here.

Earlier, he presented the Jasa Pahlawan Negara awards to 576 officers and policemen in the state who served during the Emergency and the fight against communist terrorists.

Also present were Johor police chief Datuk Mohd Khalil Kader Mohd and deputy director of investigation and legal of the Federal Criminal Investigation Department Datuk Mohd Zakaria Ahmad.
