Home Minister repeats call to halt BCS project



Home Minister Dr Mohamed Jameel Ahmed has reiterated the order to halt the installation of the border control system (BCS) by Immigration Department through Malaysia's Nexbis Limited which has been laden with allegations of corruption over its awarding.
This would be the second time Home Minister has ordered the halt of the work on the border control system project.

In response to a question from Haveeru, Home Minister last night claimed that a letter had been forwarded to the Immigration Controller Dr Mohamed Ali asking to halt the project. Jameel expressed his view that the project can only be continued in compliance with the actions recommended by the Attorney General Aishath Azima Shakoor and the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC).

“The government is also of the same view pertaining to the continuation of the project. We urge the project be taken forward with the recommendations of the AG and the ACC. As far as I’m aware, it is the stand of the government,” Home Minister detailed.

When asked why the Immigration Department has so far ignored the repeated orders to halt the work on the project, Home Minister responded with another question.

“I don’t know why the project is being continued. The government has always maintained a single stand. That is to adhere to the recommendations of the AG and ACC,” he said.

While Home Minister has ordered the halt of the BCS project, Immigration Controller Dr Mohamed Ali last week claimed that the project was near completion.

AG Azima Shakoor has earlier stressed that the government should back the ACC’s order to halt the project as it involved allegations of corruption.
