DEPUTY Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said she was not happy with former inspector-general of police Abdul Rahim Noor’s appointment as chief mediator between the Thai government and Muslim rebels.

“I was not very pleased, but it’s part of the prime minister’s prerogative. He (Dr Mahathir Mohamad) did mention to me that he thought Rahim had experience in dealing with insurgency and terrorism activities,” she told the BFM radio station in an interview this morning.
