A pro-opposition blogger publishes a letter purportedly from the National Security Council to PM Najib, indicating that it has tapped email correspondence of Pakatan Rakyat.
PETALING JAYA: A pro-Pakatan Rakyat blog published a letter today allegedly showing that the National Security Council (MKN) was being used to tap e-mail correspondence of Pakatan Rakyat.
The letter, published on Milosuam.blogspot, titled Laporan Mengenai Strategi Pakatan Pembangkang (Report on the Opposition Pact’s Strategy), was addressed to Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.
The official document indicated that there is a full report attached with the letter, which may have details of e-mail correspondence between Pakatan leaders.
“With this, I attach a full report on the opposition pact’s strategy, obtained through e-mail interception for your attention,” reads the letter.
The document is signed by Mohamed Thajudeen Abdul Wahab. A check by FMT showed that Thajudeen is MKN’s secretary and is attached to the Prime Minister’s Office.
“This proves that Najib is using the MKN to spy on Pakatan leaders and their strategists’ e-mail. No wonder they fail to detect the Sabah intruders; they were busy spying on their own citizens,” said Milo Suam.
On March 13, former deputy army chief Lieutenant-General Abd Ghaffir Abd Hamid said that the instrusion in Lahad Datu, Sabah, was caused by the failure of the military intelligence to gather information to pre-empt the intrusion by the Filipinos.
“Since 2000, the Defence Staff Intelligence Division [BSPT] has been used for political purposes, instead of gathering information on domestic and external threats.
“On top of that, we were not decisive when the intruders arrived on our shores in the early stages,” Ghaffir was reported saying.
FMT could not reach Mohamed Thajudeen for comment as his office said he was away at meetings.
