Take a close look at the two photos below. Give it a wild guess, where do you think it took place? Without captions, many would suggest this a la ninja and a la Mafia ambush has taken place somewhere in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran or Sicily.
Malaysian security forces, to our knowledge, had never resorted to this tactic. But why not? When the instruction came from the higher athourity, its compulsory for the mission to be accomplished.
The photos are just segments of a video taken on May 4, 2010. It was shocking and insulting.
At about 7.20pm, the entourage of Sultan Kelantan was ambushed by about 25 police (UTK) personnel while he was on his way to the Pengkalan Chepa Airport where a private plane was waiting to fly him back to Singapore.
They hijacked, 'kidnapped' and forced him to Hospital Universiti Sains (HUSM) Kubang Kerian. Under whose directive was it has yet to be ascertained. However, the theory of a conspiracy for him to die soon can never be discounted.
So, this is how they treated a Sultan...
I will U-Tube the video very, very soon
