Spotlight now on Bangsar, Hartamas, Publika, Curve, Bukit Bintang and KL Tower. 


PUTRAJAYA: Seven areas of the city popular for entertainment, shopping and tourism have been named as terrorists’ hotspots.

Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, citing an
intelligence report, said the seven areas are Bangsar, Hartamas,
Publika, The Curve, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur and KL Tower.

He said the Federal Territories ministry has instructed that security
be beefed up in crowded areas in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan.

“The number of police will be increased. We will discuss with the defence ministry if there’s a need to mobilise soldiers,”

  • Who
    should be the rightful agency/individual to make such security
    assessment and announcement……..certainly not this guy. We have the
    police and military intelligence that monitors the security threat to
    the country, and I believe they work closely with the intelligence
    agencies of neighbouring countries. Intelligence is a specialise
    occupation where one has to be trained, and let me ask this guy how much
    he knows about intelligence work. Rather than this guy taking the llimelight
    and issuing statements relating to intelligence of which he knows very
    little about, why don’t we leave it to the specialist to make such
    intelligence assessment and announcements. Let’s listen to the Head of
    Military Intelligence or Head of Police Intelligence appearing on TV and
    giving out their professional assessment and announcement on the state
    of the country’s security. I think the rakyat will believe them more
    than this guy.

    and the latest on this …..

    Bukit Aman: We didn’t name any areas –

    Federal police urge public not to spread ‘unverified information’ and rumours about terrorism…

     …..and of course Pak Arshad has the last word….deservedly so!

    • There
      you are……didn’t I tell you that Teuku Nan knows nuts about
      intelligence work, and I wonder how and where did he get those
      intelligence about the possible terrorist targets in Kuala Lumpur. For a
      person trained in intelligence work it would be foolish to reveal
      information about possible terrorist targets openly to the public as
      this is will give away any chance of dealing with the terrorist heads
      on. All information about terrorist action and plans must be kept away
      from public knowledge to ensure success in foiling the planned
      activities of the terrorist. Now, is Teuku Nan trying to be a hero? With
      the denial of the police, doesn’t he look stupid?
