The contradictions from the Malaysia government is getting worse. In the latest stunt the country’s top-gun, Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Khalid Abu Bakar refuted claims by the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) that several passengers who had checked in did not board the fateful Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370. In a press conference yesterday, Khalid revealed that only one person had missed the flight.
Strangely, this contradicts with DCA director-general Azharuddin Abdul Rahman’s previous statement that five people had purchased the plane tickets and had even checked in their baggage but did not make the flight. Khalid also said that four areas were being looked into – possible hijacking, sabotage, psychological problem and personal problem of passengers and crew members.
Khalid revealed one of two men who boarded a missing Malaysian jet with fake passports as 19-year-old Iranian Pouria Nour Mohd Mehdad. He used a stolen Austrian passport and was seeking to re-settle in Frankfurt, Germany. He refused to name the second person, but no sweat, because Interpol has identified him nonetheless. The second person using stolen Italian passport is Iranian Delavar Syed Mohammad Reza.
Now that the country’s top police officer was close to guarantee that terrorism was not the reason for the flight MH370’s disappearance, the possibility of the plane being blown up can be eliminated. In another twist, there was report by government mouthpiece, Berita Harian, that the jumbo jet could be somewhere around Strait of Malacca, the opposite side of where the current search-and-rescue operation is being held.
Apparently, the newspaper quoted Air Force chief Rodzali Daud as saying the plane was last detected at 2:40 a.m. (on the same Saturday the plane gone missing) by military radar near the island of Pulau Perak at the northern end of the Strait of Malacca. Cool, that’s a great news considering over 40 ships and 26 aircraft from various countries worldwide were busy combing the South China Sea for the last 3-days while the local military is staring at that piece of information, till now. Poor hardworking Vietnamese.
So, are there any more surprises that the authorities would pull out from the hat later? The Home Minister, Defence Minister, DCA, and whatnot are contradicting each other and you can bet more are coming. Well, they may look like arrogant idiots when they open their mouths but believe me, they know more than anybody else. They’re holding vital information close to their chests due to some compelling reasons.
The answers could be in Khalid’s statement that the plane’s disappearance is closely related to “possible hijacking, sabotage, psychological problem and personal problem of passengers and crew members”. His team has done the interviewing and interrogation. He was relax and composed. He knows the answers. If you think hard enough, you’ll get the hints and answers, but that is another article for another day (*grin*).
As of now, China has deployed a whopping 10 satellites to help the search and rescue operation. Everyone is helping in this bizzare aviation mystery. Digital Globe, on the other hand, has proposed a crowdsourcing initiative to the public. So if you would like to help, goto here or directly to here to help tag oil slick, wreckage, raft or other suspicious items you can see on the latest imagery.
In the meantime, can someone advise Najib administration to stop embarassing the country by making more jokes since billions of eyeballs are watching the country. We know it’s the “Visit Malaysia Year” but to deploy “Bomoh” or shaman or necromancer in locating the missing jet will not help attracting more visitors. Apparently, Datuk Mahaguru Ibrahim Mat Zin, known as Raja Bomoh Sedunia Nujum VIP and 1Malaysia Corporate Bomoh said he suspects the missing aircraft was hijacked by elves (buniyan).
With the endorsement from Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Jamil Khir Baharom, this “master” Ibrahim Mat Zin claimed to be invited by one of the country’s top leaders and was seen in KLIA performing prayer which includes using sophisticated tools such as bubu (traditional fishing tool) and bamboo scopes. Apparantly, he saw flight MH370 is currently suspended in mid-air. Hmm, perhaps someone needs to remind him again that we’ve lost a plane, not a fish or chicken.
