Lahad Datu: Update On Kg. Tanduo Operation

5 03 2013

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said that the Malaysian security forces are in full control of areas in the east coast of Sabah .

This morning the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak made a statement that the Malaysian Security Forces have launched an attack Sulu intruders in Kampung Tanduo in Lahad Datu, Sabah at 7 a.m. today.

NST reported that at about 8.25 a.m. villagers fled the area as several explosions were heard while fighter jets and helicopters are also seen.

After the air operations, the ground troops went into the area.

NST also reported that six vessels, two each from the Navy, marine police and Malaysia Maritime Enforcement Agency were earlier seen leaving the marine police jetty.

In a press statement, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said the attack on the intruders is a success and no casualties were reported on the Malaysian side during the operation.

The Sulu intruders started a stand-off in Lahad Datu, Sabah since February 12, 2013 and do not want to leave our country despite the Malaysian police have arranged for meetings and discussions hoping that the intruders would agree to leave peacefully without facing serious action.

Last Friday, they fired shots at policemen on duty killing two police officers and on Saturday they killed another six policemen in Semporna.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said Malaysia is not at war with the Philippines government as the intruders are not recognised by the Philippine government.

He further said that if they are detained,  they will face criminal charges including for murder.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein confirmed that none of the Malaysian security forces were injured in this morning’s operation.

Meanwhile, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi confirms security forces utilised 3 F/A-18D fighter bombers and 5 Hawk 208 fighter jets in this morning’s operation during a joint press conference with Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein today.

Sarawak Police Commissioner Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah said that Sarawak police are sending reinforcement of 500 policemen from its 10th Battalion in Sibu, 11th Battalion in  Kuching and 12th Battalion in  Miri, to Sabah today.

At a 4 p.m. press briefing, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said that the operation is ongoing and that he believed that the remaining Sulu soldiers were still in and around the operation area, adding that it was unknown whether some managed to escape to other nearby villages such as Tanjung Batu.

I love my country and I think so do most people in Sabah and that they do not want those intruders to disturb their lives and causing lots of troubles to everybody.

I pray that there will be no more casualties on the Malaysian security forces and this operation will be a success.

When I supported the opposition parties in Pakatan Rakyat (PR), I thought that the Malaysian police was bad and brutal because PR leaders always say so.

Now I am proud of the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) and I think that they are our heroes.

LAHAD DATU: Najib Announces Attack On Intruders

5 03 2013

(NST) Below is the statement by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on the Lahad Datu incident.

Since the intrusion by a group of gunmen in Lahad Datu on Feb 12, the government has taken an approach to resolve the conflict without any bloodshed.

The police have arranged for meetings and discussions hoping that the intruders would agree to leave peacefully without facing serious action.

However, as the intrusion prolonged, it was clear that the intruders had no intention to leave Sabah. Last Friday, they fired shots at policemen on duty causing the deaths of two officers and one day later, another six policemen were killed by intruders in Semporna.

After the first attack, I have reaffirmed that the intruders must surrender or we will act.

As an Islamic country that loves peace and uphold the struggle to end conflicts through negotiations, our effort to prevent bloodshed in Lahad Datu failed. Our security forces were attacked and our men killed. Malaysians, especially in Sabah, are worried for their safety.

The government must take action to defend the country’s dignity and sovereignty as demanded by the people.

At 7 a.m. this morning, our security forces have launched an attack (on the intruders) in Kampung Tanduo.

Ayamas Products Withdrawn From Market

5 11 2012

A random test on processed food last week found traces of banned antibiotics in an Ayamas product.

So, the Sarawak Veterinary Authority banned all imports of Ayamas products with immediate effect because of the detection of the banned antibiotics known as Chloramphenico in a sample of chicken frankfurters.

Sarawak State Assistant Agriculture Minister Mong Dagang said “The antibiotics are not supposed to be used for human food. It is a banned substance in food production”.

Now I wonder if there are other brands of chicken products in Malaysia that also contained the antibiotic or other banned antibiotics?

I hope that the Health Minister will list out all the Ayamas products that contained the banned antibiotic.

Today NST reported that:

GEORGE TOWN: All Ayamas products with traces of banned antibiotics products has since been ordered to be withdrawn from the market.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Liow Tiong Lai said in Penang that his ministry had ordered for the withdrawal of the product penduct laboratory tests on the batch affected by the bacterial affection.

 Liow said he was now waiting for the laboratory results of the tests taken on the affected samples.

He however also added that other Ayamas products not affected by the bacterial infection could continue to be sold.

Today NST reports on the banned Al-Arqam movement’s “shadow cabinet”.

Please click here for: ‘PKR’s Dr. Badrulamin Detained At Al-Arqam Concert; Is He Involved With The Banned Sect.?

Al-Arqam was decreed a deviant sect in 1994 by the National Fatwa Council after it was found to have practised Aurad Muhammadiah teachings which was described as misleading Muslims from the true Islamic beliefs.

There are 41 ministries in the “shadow cabinet” including:

  •  the ministry of the netherworld (kementerian alam ghaib)

  •  the ministries of true souls and sects (roh suci dan tariqat)

  • the ministry of death and the hereafter (kematian dan akhirat)

  • the ministry of family and holy sex (keluarga dan seks suci)

Khatijah Am had assumed the position as their prime minister and claimed that she received direct orders from her late husband, the founder of Al-Arqam, Ashaari Muhammad.

Al-Arqam followers believe that Ashaari Muhammad is still leading them.

NST also reports that Khatijah lived in a mansion called RSA Palace in Mecca which she rented for 340,000 riyal (RM 276,000) a year.

She had been holding monthly meetings with “top leaders” of the sect in Malaysia via video conferencing.
