The Home Minister said Khalid was acting within the ambit of his job scope when he issued the orders through his official Twitter account.
"This kind of announcement (on social media) is not against any laws or regulations, but is in fact a faster way to relay information to the public.
"The Ministry does not view the IGP's actions as wrong because he was discharging his duty in making the orders so that swift action could be taken to contain certain issues," Dr Ahmad Zahid said this in a written reply to N. Surendran (PKR-Padang Serai) at the Dewan Rakyat here on Monday.
"Even so, details of ongoing investigations and their eventual results will not be released on social media," he added.
Surendran had asked if action would be taken against Khalid for making orders on Twitter for investigations against members of the public including those who had been critical of his actions.
Khalid was known to make statements and call for police investigations through his official Twitter account.
