An independent panel will be set up by the end of the year to review cases of misconduct by Home Team officers after the individual departments have investigated, said Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean on Thursday.

Mr Teo, who is also Home Affairs Minister, said the panel will review the findings of internal investigations into cases of serious alleged misconduct by an officer in his official capacity.

Examples include those which have resulted in death or serious injury and those which obstruct, prevent, pervert or defeat the course of justice.

The panel will also investigate cases where it is in the public interest to do so, said Mr Teo during the debate on his ministry's budget in Parliament.
