Attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail shed little light on the progress of investigations into the loss of two RMAF F5-E jet engines, when he only revealed that no senior air force officers were involved in the theft from a military airbase in Sungai Besi in 2007.
"The investigation papers show there are no senior military officers involved. Only what we can call rank and file personnel are involved. No officers."
"We shall take action against the suspects in the very near future. You can mark my words. However, investigations are still ongoing," said Abdul Gani.
Abdul Gani appears to have contradicted himself in the statement. If the investigations are still ongoing, why is he jumping the gun by confirming the involvement of only rank and file personnel?
I am interested to find out how rank and file personnel are able to establish networking and business dealing with an international syndicate? There must be very smart people amongst the rank and file in the airforce.
It is remarkable to note that the heist of RM100 million involves only rank and file personnel. Moreover, these personnel were able to persuade several custom officers to help in their crime. If the fact is established, it will become a truly Guinness World Record attempt.
In a society which emphasizes so much on position and power, a small number of rank and file personnel were able to pull through a stunning heist is an eye opener. Who needs a 'high ranking position/title' to help the door anymore?
The fact that no one has been arrested or prosecuted so far speaks volume of our police, MACC and AG's competency.
