Immigration director-general Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud said investigations were ongoing as it is believed that the syndicate had help from within the Department.

"No Immigration officer was detained in the operations. I am not discounting arrests," he said, adding several electronic devices were found in the department's lobby and near computers of officers.

A syndicate is believed to have raked in RM4.7mil in 2018 to produce forged temporary work permits (PLKS) for foreign workers in the agricultural, manufacturing and service sectors.
