POLICE will investigate the claim by media advocacy group Gerakan Media Merdeka (Geramm) that three journalists were roughed up by special action unit (UTK) officers at a political event in Tanah Merah, Kelantan, yesterday.
Police secretary, Noorsiah Mohd Saaduddin in statement, however, confirmed that there were no UTK personnel involved in the case.
“We have already initiated an investigation to identify the individuals allegedly involved in the incident,” she said.
Noorsiah said police would take stern action if their investigation confirmed that there was violation of the code of ethics and conduct by any of its personnel while discharging their duties at the event.
“Police have always appreciated the media and respect their role in disseminating information to the public, especially in fighting crime.
“The close rapport between the media and police will be maintained so that the public can get accurate information through reliable sources,” she added.
