About two days ago, deputy home minister Mohd Azis Jamman reportedly said that the PDRM (Police DiRaja Malaysia) are allowed to check civilians’ phone whenever they want to, but it looks like his statement was apparently taken out of context. This is because Azis shared a press release which cleared the air about his previous statement.

In his press release that was shared on the Home Ministry’s Twitter page, he explained that the PDRM do indeed have the rights to check your phone, but only during (an) operation. They cannot randomly check someone’s phone without a proper reason.

The statement further added that the police will only check phones when the individual is suspect for committing a crime under the following laws:

  • Act 574 of the Penal Code
  • Section 233 of the Communication and Multimedia Act 1998 (Act 588) 
  • Sedition Act 1948 (Act 15) 
  • Security Offence Act (Special Measures) 2012 (Act 747) 
  • Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Act 2007 (Act 670) 
  • Violence Prevention Act 2015 (Act 769)

Following that, the Home Ministry urged everyone who has inquiries about the statement or information about crimes committed under the acts mentioned above to contact the complaint branch of the Department of Integrity and Standard Compliance (PDRM). You can contact them using the details below:
