The Home Ministry may use the Internal Security Act (ISA) or other preventive laws against the leader and key members of the Federal Special Forces of Malaysia (FSFM) if the outlawed organisation is found to be a threat to the country.
Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said there would be no compromise on the country’s security.
“We will use any of the existing laws against activities like this,” he said
- FSFM leaders may face ISA curbs
earlier this week, police arrested “General” Nor Azami Ahmad Ghazali, the leader of the banned Federal Special Forces of Malaysia (FSFM).
FSFM is a bogus paramilitary group, claiming to be working with the government on security and intelligence matters. They promise fresh recruits a minimum monthly salary of RM1,900 depending on the speciality. Some could be offered positions in the intelligence gathering sector or the security section.
In 2003, the police uncovered a shadowy paramilitary movement which boasted 8,000 members and a slush fund which ran into millions of ringgit. A raid at a shoplot near the Pantai Hillpark apartments in July 2003 and police seizing a large cache of weapons, uniforms and computer paraphernalia. The weapons included parang and handcuffs, but there was no mention of guns.
Investigations revealed that millions of ringgit had been collected from the sale of FSFM ranks and uniforms to members. Victims are believed to have paid between RM8,000 and RM25,000 for ranks ranging from "Second Lieutenant" to "Captain".
What Lulu doesnt get is, why is our esteemend Home Minister mulling [is that the right word-ah?] the thought of using ISA?
If they are conmen/scam artists, don't we have laws to use against them?
If they had real weapons - guns etc, there are laws against that. Laws that can hang you.
So, why-o-why, is Hishamuddin thinking ISA, and why is he like asking our opinion?
Lulu tak faham
