Navy chief: Torture is not in our culture

KUALA LUMPUR: Torture is not in our culture, says Royal Malaysian Navy chief Admiral Tan Sri Ahmad Kamarulzaman Ahmad Badaruddin.
"We have taken disciplinary action, including dismissal from the service in previous cases and we will continue to do so," he said after an official visit by his Singaporean counterpart, Rear-Admiral Lew Chuen Hong on Wednesday morning at Mindef.
Admiral Ahmad Kamarulzaman was referring to the case of Laskar Kelas 1 (Able Rate) Nik Muhammad Baihaqy Nik Mat, 28, and similarly-ranked Muhammad Lailatulman Mohd Sukri, 26, who died in the detention room at Sungai Wangi, Sitiawan while undergoing training on Sept 29.
He also made it clear that such a culture was unacceptable and urged everybody to help report any such incidents.
Ahmad Kamarulzaman also said that the Navy would not protect anybody in the murder investigations.
"This is my promise as the Navy chief. We will ensure that all parties receive justice," he added.
On Tuesday, the Seri Manjung magistrate's court granted an application to alter the remand order for two people held over the deaths of the two Royal Malaysian Navy personnel.
The new remand order for investigations under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder replaces the earlier order under Section 325/506 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt and criminal intimidation.
A total of seven individuals have been arrested and remanded in investigations into the murders of the two sailors.
