RMN Seeks Government Permission To Fire At Encroachers
RMN chief Admiral Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Jaafar said if such permission was granted, it would be another approach of preventing intrusion by terrorist groups from the Philippines.
"I think the time has come for the attorney-general to ponder over this issue which could facilitate security efforts for the country's waters, off the east coast of Sabah," he said.
He said this when asked to comment on the latest intrusion at Semporna, Sabah, in which a marine policeman was shot dead by a group of men and another, abducted.
In the incident on Saturday, the eight armed men stormed a resort in Pulau Mabul, killing Police Corporal Ab Rajah Jamuan, 32, and abducting Police Constable Zakian Aleip, 26.
Earlier, Abdul Aziz witnessed the handing-over of duties as fleet commander between Vice-Admiral Datuk Mohamad Roslan Mohamad Ramli and retiring Vice-Admiral Datuk Abdul Hadi A. Rashid.
