MALAYSIANS have been told not to worry about national security as it is still secured despite allegations of a foreign intelligence agency operating in the country.
Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said he was waiting for a report from the police and the National Security Council (NSC) regarding allegations of a foreign intelligence agency’s involvement in the abduction of Palestinians in Malaysia.
“On the Mossad agents issue, I have not received a detailed report from the NSC and the police or regarding an Israeli (who entered Malaysia using another passport).
“I will be meeting with the Inspector-General of Police (Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani) and the NSC and all related agencies to obtain the report,” he told reports after officiating at the Mega Festival for Hawkers, Traders and Small Entrepreneurs at Dataran Merdeka today.
He was asked to comment on the report published by a local English-language newspaper on the involvement of the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, in the abduction of a Palestinian, Omar Z. M. Albelbaisy Raeda, that was carried out by locals.
Yesterday, Kuala Lumpur police chief Azmi Abu Kassim said the police had yet to confirm Mossad’s involvement in the abduction case as claimed by the daily.
On October 5, it was reported that police rescued the 31-year-old victim who was kidnapped a day earlier, after 18 individuals were arrested in Kuala Langat, Ampang and Beranang in Selangor and Malacca in separate operations conducted from September 29 to October 4.
Last Friday, 11 individuals, including a woman, were charged in the Kuala Lumpur magistrates’ court with kidnapping Omar to solicit information on software to hack mobile phones. – Bernama, October 20, 2022.
