I Never Said 70 Military Personnel Involved In IS - Rahim

KOTA KINABALU, April 13  - Deputy Defence Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri denied that he said 70 military personnel in the country had joined the IS militant group.

"The news portal distorted my statement. What I said was that according to the police, almost 70 Malaysians of various background had joined the IS. I never said they were military personnel," he said in a statement Monday night.

"This report is malicious and aimed at tarnishing the image of the Malaysian Armed Forces," he said, referring to the news portal report quoting him as saying that 70 military personnel had joined the IS.

Abdul Rahim said the police are still investigating the background of Malaysians involved in the IS and only they can to decide on the matter. (Bernama)
