The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

THE gov­ern­ment is in­ves­ti­gat­ing claims made by Philip­pines’ Na­tional Lib­er­a­tion Front (MNLF) chair­man Nur Misuari that a Malaysian leader was in­volved in kid­nap-for-ran­som ac­tiv­i­ties in Sabah. Min­is­ter in the Prime Min­is­ter’s Depart­ment Datuk Seri Shahi­dan Kas­sim said ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion would be taken if the al­le­ga­tion of in­volve­ment is proven. “The mat­ter is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated.” He was re­ply­ing to Datuk Mar­cus @ Makin Mo­jigoh (BNPu­tatan) who wanted a clar­i­fi­ca­tion on the claim by Nur Misuari who had on Thurs­day al­leged that a Malaysian leader was in­volved in the kid­nap of 21 for­eign­ers in Si­padan, Sabah, in 2000.
