We are told there is a two minute video clip that shows military commandos being tortured by their trainees (THE SUN).
A military torture camp in Malaysia?
The matter was raised in parliament by MP Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (PKR-Machang) who said he received the video clip in VCD format last week and offered the VCD to Najib on May 14 during the wrapping up of the debate on the royal address.
However, Najib who is also Defence Minister, did not seem interested to explain the video, said Saifuddin.
“As a political secretary to defence minister from 1994 to 1996, I understood the training of the commandos but I had never seen any training like that. I want to know if the module is acceptable as this is about human dignity. The families of these soldiers did not send their sons to be tortured,” Saifuddin (THE SUN).
Saifuddin said from what he saw in the video clip, the trainers seemed to be enjoying the alleged torture.
“If this is within the knowledge of the minister, he should give the public a responsible explanation and what action has been taken on the trainers”.
Trainees enjoying torturing their commandos? Hah! Stranger things have happened in this country. Remember, earlier we were also fuming about the mystery of the 16 deaths during a much dreaded National Service programme? Remember, who is the minister responsible for that too?
Hmm…Najib…are you there?
