Hisham denies rift with IGP

Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein has denied allegations that there was a rift between his ministry and the police, amidst allegations that a 'third party' was meddling with police affairs.

In reply to a supplementary question by Anthony Loke (Rasah - DAP) during the question and answer session at the Dewan Rakyat, Hishammuddin described his relationship as "fine".

On the apparent media war between Hishammuddin and the Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan, the minister said Musa about the 'third party' because he was asked about it during an interview.

Hishammuddin was referring to Musa's claim during an interview with Mingguan Malaysia published on Sunday, that a 'third party' was interfering with police operations.

He said that the clandestine 'third party' would issue orders to his subordinates, circumventing the top management of the police.
