PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): The government has agreed to implement the use of body cameras on law enforcement officers such as police, immigration and customs to overcome issues of misconduct, says Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He said the proposal for the use of body cameras was accepted, as there have been various allegations of misconduct by officers on duty, such as beating the person being investigated.

"The officer on duty will wear body cameras, and when he or the client talks, it will be captured on the camera. We can see what the officer is doing to the client, ” he told reporters after chairing the Special Cabinet Committee on Anti-Corruption meeting here on Thursday . However, Dr Mahathir said the date of implementation of the use of that body cameras has yet to be finalised, as it would involve certain costs to the government. - Bernama
