LAHAD DATU: Philippine media's claim baseless - Zahid Hamidi
GOMBAK: Malaysia today denied a Philippine media's claim that its security forces are randomly targetting Filipinos of Sulu descent in Sabah.
Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in dismissing the claim, said there were no reports received on the accusations.
On the move to deploy an additional five army batallions from the peninsular to Sabah, he assured the public that it would not disrupt the security operation in the country.
"Our security measures will not be compromised as we have enough battalions and personnel for all security purposes.
"The move is aimed at enhancing the security at the special security areas from Kudat to Tawau covering 1,400km," he said after performing the ground breaking ceremony for the Armed Forces Fund Board's residential college at the International Islamic Universiti here today.
On the current situation in Lahad Datu, he said the armed Sulu terrorists have yet to show any signs of surrendering.
