KUALA LUMPUR — Oct. 10, 2019: Two state assemblymen, one from Melaka and the other from Negri Sembilan, are among seven persons arrested for alleged involvement in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) following federal police operations today that also covered Kedah.
The suspects had been under police surveillance since last November.
At a press conference the principal assistant director of the Counter-Terrorism Division Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said some people outside the country had been trying to activate the LTTE movement in the country. “We are taking preventive action because we don’t want them to grow.
Today’s arrests mean that 25 people have been arrested so far for alleged involvement in the LTTE in Malaysia since 2009. — Bernama
