Sabah masih keliru

Keadaan masih keliru. Semalam kerajaan umumkan kekalahan menyeluruh (Total Defeat) ke atas tentera penceroboh tapi dah lebih 24 jam masih tiada sebarang pengesahan.

Bekas Panglima Tentera Darat Malaysia, Jeneral (B) Tan Sri Md Hashim Hussein berpendapat pencerobohan di Lahad Datu sepatutnya boleh ditangani dalam masa lebih singkat jika terdapat rantaian perintah dan penggemblengan (tentera) yang lebih jelas.

Beliau dulu ketua no 1 tentera darat. Berpengalaman mengendalikan krisis keselamatan dan kedaulatan negara. Krisis Sauk selesai dalam masa 4 hari. Bila hanya bersuara janganlah dianggap pengkhianat. Semangat patriotik beliau mahu krisis di Lahad Datu diselesaikan dan rakyat tidak dipinggirkan daripada mengetahui keadaan sebenar.

Veteran Moro guerrillas heading to Sabah
March 6, 2013
The fighters are veteran members of the Moro National Liberation Front and some have slipped through the security forces.
MANILA: Battle-hardened Moro guerrillas have sailed from Mindanao to reinforce followers of Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III who are battling Malaysian forces in Sabah, one of their leaders said Wednesday.
The fighters are veteran members of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) who waged a decades-long insurgency against the Philippine government before signing a 1996 peace pact, Muhajab Hashim told AFP.
“Many have slipped through the security forces. They know the area like the back of their hands because they trained there in the past,” Hashim told AFP.
“We are expecting more of them to join (the fighting) even if our official instruction is for them to refrain from going.”
If the claim is true, the Moro fighters will be engaging Malaysian security forces with little or no experience in warfare.
Hashim could not say how many MNLF fighters had managed to slip through naval cordons set up by the Philippines and Malaysia, but said “thousands” had earlier expressed interest in joining.
Hashim is chairman of the MNLF’s Islamic Command Council overseeing all of the group’s armed forces, which were meant to disarm as part of the 1996 peace pact but never fully complied.
He said that although MNLF leaders had not officially instructed their men to sail to Malaysia, they fully supported the sultan’s efforts to reclaim the Malaysian state of Sabah as his territory.
“MNLF fighters are adherents of the sultan, we are followers. So there is more than an alliance,” he said. “We feel very strongly against the attacks against our brothers from Sulu.”
Malaysian security forces launched a major offensive on Tuesday to end a three-week standoff between followers of Kiram that has left at least 27 people dead.
However, the sultan’s aides said in Manila that their followers, believed to originally number between 100 and 300, had escaped Tuesday’s attacks.
The MNLF was founded by Muslim scholar Nur Misuari to fight for a Muslim homeland in Mindanao in the late 1960s, and had once received support from Malaysia

Manila trip ‘not linked to Sabah invasion’

 | March 6, 2013
Anwar says Tian Chua and Sivarasa visited Manila on a fact-finding mission regarding Manuel Amalilo, who is wanted by the Philippines but protected by Malaysia.
KUALA LUMPUR: PKR MPs Tian Chua and R Sivarasa’s Feb 7 trip to Manila was unrelated to the Royal Sulu Sultanate army’s intrusion into Sabah, Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim said today.
He stressed that the two MPs had visited Manila to obtain information on Manuel Amalilo, whose deportation to the Philippines was blocked by Malaysian authorities on Jan 25.
Amalilo is wanted in the Philippines for allegedly scamming 15,000 Filipinos of RM859 million under a company known as Aman Futures Group.
“Their visit was about Amalilo, the relative of Sabah Chief Minister [Musa Aman] and Foreign Minister [Anifah Aman], who has been labelled by President Benigno Aquino as a criminal,” Anwar told reporters in response to a question.
“The Philippine government wants Malaysia to send Amililo back so that it can continue [its] investigations…Why are we giving him protection?
“So when this issue emerged, Sivarasa and Tian Chua went to Manila to get information, in order to avoid any slander. It was to get clear information and confirmation of Amalilo’s scam.”
Upon their return to Malaysia, Sivarasa and Tian Cua had told a press conference on Feb 19 that the prime minister must deport Amalilio as soon as possible.
Sivarasa said that, based on his checks with the Philippines, Amalilio was holding a genuine Filipino passport as well as a Malaysian passport, hence proving the latter held a dual citizenship.
“Article 24 of the Federal Constitution stipulates that if a person conducts in an act to obtain another citizenship, he or she will lose their Malaysian citizenship automatically,” the Subang MP had said.
But pro-Umno bloggers have speculated that the two visited Manila to meet an agent of the self-styled Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram, who is behind the armed incursion in Sabah.
The rumours come in the wake of unnamed Philippine intelligence sources reportedly saying that a leader from the Malaysian opposition had encouraged the Royal Sulu Sultanate army to attack Sabah, prompting Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to initiate investigations into the claims.
But both Anwar and Jamalul have repeatedly denied links to one another, and the former has initiated legal action against Utusan Malaysia and TV3, which carried the reports.
