KUALA LUMPUR— Individuals on a ‘special list’ and those with permission from the inspector-general of police (IGP) are allowed to have police escorts, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin.

His statement came following a viral video which shows Baling MP Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim’s son being escorted by two outriders in Penang on May 6.

“The matter is being investigated internally and we will announce the findings of the investigation in a day or two,” Hamzah told reporters at a Hari Raya open house at Pusat Latihan Polis in Kuala Lumpur.

The two police officers have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.
