KOTA KINABALU, January 15, 2016: Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) deputy
president, Edward Dagul, today lodged a missing person report at the
Karamunsing Police station, here, referring to the key witness of the
trial of the armed intrusion at Tanduo, Lahad Datu.
According to the news, the prosecution has failed to locate and subpoena
key witness and the last prosecution witness, SAC Zulkifli Hj Abd Aziz to
give evidence at the trial.
SAC Zuklifli Hj Abd Aziz, who was the assistant chief of Special Branch of
the Malaysian Police (PDRM), reported to have “served in Sabah for a long
period, had great and specific knowledge on Sulu sultanate and had
personal contacts in Southern Philippines and had handled all kidnapping
cases in Sabah in terms of intelligence for the past 15 years and led the
negotiations between Malaysia authorities and the Sulu gunmen’s leader in
Edward, in his statement, finds it amazing that the prosecution cannot
find Encik Zulkifli who was a senior police officer who had retired only
in November 2014.
He said that SAC Zulkifli would, like most people, have family, friends
and associates who know where he can be found.
“In the interest of the public and to allay the fears of the people, we
now lodge this “Missing Person Report”. We would like the police to locate
Encik Zulkifli and let it be explained how is it that he could not be
located and produced in court as a star witness, whether he is missing and
whether crime has been committed in this missing person case,” Edward
