Khairul Dzaimee appointed as BHEUU D-G effective today

PUTRAJAYA, March 22 — Outgoing Immigration Department director-general Datuk Seri Khairul Dzaimee Daud will take charge as the Prime Minister Department’s Legal Affairs Division (BHEUU) director-general effective today.

The appointment was confirmed by Khairul Dzaimee during a press conference held after handing over his duties as the Immigration Director-General earlier today, which he claimed was a normal routine in the system.

“Indication about the transfer was made known a month ago because I have served in the position for four years and that is a long duration to serve as the director-general of a sensitive department,” he said.

Khairul Dzaimee joined the civil service in December 1996 and was appointed as the Immigration Director-General on January 14, 2019. He had also served in various ministries, including as the Home Ministry’s deputy chief secretary (Policy and Control).

Meanwhile, former National Registration Department director-general Datuk Ruslin Jusoh has been appointed as the new Immigration Department Director-General.

Speaking of his new appointment, Khairul Dzaimee said the position requires the handling of a few high-profile legal issues involving the country’s legal matters, including the claims made by Sulu.
