KOTA KINABALU, March 10 — Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) vice-president Tian Chua seems to have lost good values and humanity for allegedly saying that the Lahad Datu intrusion is a drama staged by Umno to scare the people and intimidate them, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.
He asked Tian Chua whether the killings of eight policemen by a group of ruthless Filipino gunmen during the intrusion was also part of the conspiracy.
“I want to ask him (Tian Chua) whether the pictures of tens of bodies found in the jungle that I’ve seen with my own eyes are also a drama? It is painful to see families, children and wives of policemen like Sergeant Baharin lost their love ones. Do not politicise everything just to fan hatred and sentiments among the people,” he told reporters after visiting the widow of Sergeant Baharin Hamit, one of the six policemen killed by Filipino intruders in Kampung Simunul, Semporna on March 2, at Inanam Laut near here, today.
Thanking Hishammuddin for visiting her, Sumiati, who has two children, said the visit had renewed their spirit in moments of sorrow.
“The children have acceptable the lost of their father and they are stable now. We are still sad, but we are more spirited now. We have understood the situation. The children are proud to see the pictures of their father on television.. They keep saying he is a national warrior,” she added.
