KLIA police chief ACP Zulkifli Adamsah said the police have so far recorded statements from 12 Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) staff in connection with the disruption of the systems at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) last month.

“The case is quite complicated as it involves technical matters and needs assessments from the experts in the field,” he told Bernama when contacted yesterday.

A system malfunction at KLIA was first reported on August 21 following the failure of its network system, affecting major functions such as flight information display system, check-in counters and luggage handling systems as well as Wi-Fi connections.
