Parliament should adopt an all-party emergency motion tomorrow to condemn North Korea’s “hostage terrorism” and to call on the North Korean regime to immediately revoke the ban on Malaysians from leaving North Korea.
When I issued a statement on 17th February to ask the Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister, Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi to explain why security at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) was so lax that it could become playground for foreign agents to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s half-brother, Kim Jong Nam, 46, I had not expected to hit the bull’s eye.
The events of the subsequent fortnight showed that without the knowledge of the Malaysian authorities, Malaysia had in fact long been the “playground” of North Korean secret agents and assassins to the extent that they could carry out the dastardly assassination of Kim Jong Nam by the use of one of the world’s deadliest nerve agents VX, which is among the most dangerous chemicals ever created by man and classified by the United Nations as a weapon of mass destruction.
The use of the abhorrent and deadly nerve agent by North Korean secret agents to assassinate Kim Jong Nam at KLIA shows that the North Korean regime has utter contempt for the basic norms of international conduct and relations among nations in international society.
Malaysians fully support the firmest actions taken by Putrajaya to ensure the safety and security of Malaysians in North Korea and to protest against the North Korean regime’s utter contempt of civilized international relations – including any rupture of diplomatic relations with the North Korean government.
