KUALA LUMPUR: Two non-governmental organisations (NGOs) yesterday lodged police reports at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters
against Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) vice president Nurul Izzah Anwar.
The reports were about her meeting with Jacel H. Kiram, the daughter of a former Sulu militant group leader Jamalul Kiram III.
The two NGOs were Persatuan Kebangsaan Anak Polis Malaysia (PKAPM) and Gabungan NGO-NGO Malaysia.
They urged the police to take stern action against Nurul Izzah who they said, betrayed the Malaysian people, particularly the family of members of the
security forces who perished in the militant intrusion in Lahad Datu in 2013. PKAPM president Mohammed Duranny Izham told reporters, his organisation was disappointed and angry with Nurul Izzah for her action which could be equated to conspiracy with the country’s enemies.
Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar had earlier said that Nurul Izzah, who is also Lembah Pantai member of parliament would be called next week to give her statement.
In February 2013, militants from the southern Philippines entered Malaysian waters in boats and regrouped at Felda Sahabat 17, Kampung Tanduo, Lahad Datu.
In the clashes that followed, two members of the Malaysian security forces were killed and three others injured, while 12 of the armed intruders were
killed. Six policemen perished in an ambush at a water village in Kampung Simunul, Semporna and two soldiers died in another clash and in an accident respectively during the operation in Lahad Datu.
Nurul Izzah had allegedly admitted in an earlier statement to meeting Jacel on Nov 9 while in the Philippines with Batu member of parliament, Tian Chua in conjunction with a meeting between PKR members and interested parties there.
Following numerous public criticisms and condemnations, Nurul Izzah finally apologised to Malaysians upset over the photograph of her with Jacel.- BERNAMA
