PRESS RELEASE: From The Office Of Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim
27 April 2012
HOME MINISTER MUST RESPOND TO SPECULATIONS OF ORGAN-SNATCHING INVOLVING INDONESIAN MIGRANT WORKERS AND MALAYSIAN POLICE
Indonesia's Agency for the Placement and Protection of Indonesian Migrant Workers (BNP2TKI) has claimed that Indonesians recently shot dead by Malaysian police have had their organs removed. This matter is receiving wide media coverage in their country.
Parti Keadilan Rakyat strongly condemns these acts if they are found to be true and calls for an immediate independent investigation into both the circumstances of the shootings and determine if any organ has been removed from the dead men.
The police have been implicated, therefore only an independent investigation will clear them and manage public perception.
Immediate so as to stem any negative news building-up against our country in Indonesia, the good name of Malaysia and its police have to be protected.
Parti Keadilan Rakyat is prepared to work with the Indonesian Embassy, including legal assistance, to seek the facts of behind these deaths and if the bodies have been handled inappropriately.
Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim
Opposition Leader, Malaysian Parliament
