Kor Risik DiRaja (Royal Intelligence Corps) specialises in intelligence gathering, intelligence analysis, psychological warfare (i.e., psy-ops), surveillance, espionage, reconnaissance and counter-intelligence operations. It also manages the propaganda and counter-propaganda effort of the Malaysian Army.


Kor Risik DiRaja was formed on 7 November 1969. However, its roots can be traced back to 1953, when Private Hashim Rauf was attached to HQ 355 Field Security Section (FSS) Intelligence Corps (lowed by the attachment in 1955 of other officers and non commissioned officers for the Royal Malay Regiment, the Federation Reconnaissance Regiment and Federation Engineers to the 355 Field Security Section.

With the independence of Malaya, Malayan members of the Federation Army were transferred back from 355 Field Security Section to form the Federation Field Security Section (FSSS) and combined with the Federation Military Police (FMP), Provost Section and the Special Investigation Section under the Federation Military Police Corps. In 1959, due to the differing roles of the Military Police and the Intelligence Units, the Federation Field Security Section was reconfigured and placed under the Malayan General Service Corp (MGSC-Int.).

In 1963, when Malaysia was facing the dual threat of the Insurgency by the Malayan Communist Party the Confrontation with Indonesia, the unit was enlarged and became the Ministry of Defence Intelligence Unit under the Joint Intelligence Directorate at the Ministry of Defence (Malaysia). Kor Risik was formally formed on 7 November 1969 by then Malaysia Armed Forces Chief Jeneral Tunku Osman Tunku Mohammad Jewa.

On 7 June 1997, Kor Risik was formally bestowed the “Royal” title and became known as Kor Risik DiRaja.
