Intelligence Operation To Identify Culprits In Sabah Security Info Leak


KUALA LUMPUR – The Home Ministry is engaged in an intelligence operation to identify ‘insiders’ in enforcement agencies, who were responsible for leaking information on Sabah’s security operations.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who is also Home Minister said action would be taken against the culprits.

He indicated that the ministry would never compromise in its concern for the country’s security and sovereignty.

“There are some constraints even though we have the assets, personnel and specific information system.

“But as what the Prime Minister had said, there must have been an information leak,” he said while responding to a supplementary question from M.Kulasegaran (DAP-Ipoh Barat) during the Ministers’ Question Time (MQT) at the Dewan Rakyat Tuesday.

M.Kulasegaran had asked why encroachment of Sabah’s waters continued to happen despite the implementation of various measures.
