12 Filipino, one M’sian terror suspects nabbed in Sabah
Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun KUALA LUMPUR: The police have arrested 13 people — 12 Filipinos, one of whom is a woman, and a Malaysian — in Sabah on suspicion of being members of terrorist groups and protecting terrorists in hiding, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said yesterday. They were rounded up in the Semporna and Tambunan areas in a two-day operation on March 11 and 12 mounted by the Counter-Terrorism Division, Special Branch and the VAT 69 Commando Unit, he said in a statement. “All of them were arrested on suspicion of being members of one of several terrorist groups, such as the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG), Maute and Royal Sulu Force (RSF). Some of them are suspected to have given protection to terrorist elements believed to be in hiding in Sabah,” he said. Elaborating, Mohamad Fuzi said the police arrested five Filipinos and the Malaysian, aged between 40 and 60, in Semporna on March 11. “Four of them are suspected to have been involved in the Maute terrorist group siege of Marawi City, Philippines, in 2017. “They are also suspected to have given protection to Maute terrorist elements and several Middle Eastern nationals believed to be hiding in Sabah,” he said. He also said that the two others are suspected to be members of the RSF that was involved in the attacks in Lahad Datu and Semporna in 2013. They are also suspected to have been involved in recruiting new members for RSF by selling membership cards of the group to Filipino nationals residing in Sabah, he said. Mohamad Fuzi said these two suspects had fled to the southern Philippines after the defeat of the RSF but, in November last year, sneaked into Semporna to revive the RSF activities in Sabah. Also on March 11, the police arrested five Filipinos and a Filipina, aged between 23 and 63, in Tambunan, he said. “One of the suspects, a construction labourer, is suspected to be a member of the ASG that was involved in the attack on Marawi City. “The suspect sneaked into Sabah in December last year to escape the Philippine military operations. “The five others are suspected to have given shelter to ASG and Maute terrorist elements who are still free,” he said. Mohamad Fuzi said that on March 12, the police arrested a 39-year-old Filipino, who worked as a construction labourer, on suspicion of having given shelter to ASG and Maute terrorist elements. “With these arrests, the police believe they can trace and hunt the remnants of the ASG and Maute members suspected to be hiding in the country, especially in Sabah,” he said. All of them were arrested on suspicion of having committed offences under Chapter VI A on Offences Relating to Terrorism of the Penal Code (Act 574) and are being investigated in accordance with procedures under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Act 747), he said. Mohamad Fuzi also said that 10 Filipino nationals without valid travel documents were also arrested during the operation. They have been handed over to the Immigration Department for further action, he added. —Bernama Facebook 2 Messenger Twitter 0 WhatsApp Email Print The post 12 Filipino, one M’sian terror suspects nabbed in Sabah appeared first on Borneo Post Online.

Camembert causes stink in French parliament in row over quality rules
The cheese is caught in a tussle between lovers of age-old cheesemaking methods based on raw milk and supporters of modern dairy practices like pasteurisation. — AFP pic PARIS, March 14 — A row over changes to a quality label for camembert cheese reached the French parliament yesterday as supporters of a traditional raw-milk recipe distributed samples of the creamy, odorous speciality to lawmakers.The cheese, which takes its name from a village in Normandy and dates back to the 18th century, is caught in a tussle between lovers of age-old cheesemaking methods based on raw milk and supporters of modern dairy practices like pasteurisation.Producers agreed a compromise last year revising terms used for the “Camembert de Normandie” protected origin scheme starting in 2021.The deal allows industrial producers using pasteurised milk to join the quality label system in return for respecting conditions like using Normandy breed cows for some milk supply. Meanwhile, raw-milk users will be able to add a special mention on their products.But traditionalists like lawmaker Richard Ramos say the new rules are a mistake that lead to a bland industrial product, rather than a cheese with long roots in French gastronomic heritage.“When you open and taste a Camembert you have the idea of Frenchness,” he said as he left raw-milk cheeses in the letterboxes of his 577 colleagues at France’s National Assembly, the lower house of parliament.In the heartland of camembert production, dairy farmer Charles Breant in the Normandy village of Bermonville shared Ramos’ concerns about the badge of quality.“If pasteurised milk is authorised it will mean the end of the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) because 97 or 98 per cent of camembert cheeses will be pasteurised and so will lose its connection with the land,” he said.Lactalis, the world’s largest dairy company and a regular target for critics of the new scheme, said in a statement Ramos’s initiative was misleading and failed to show Lactalis was supporting camembert both through raw and pasteurised milk.Agriculture Minister Didier Guillaume told lawmakers he supported the revamped quality scheme, which he said was “not a Trojan horse for industrial firms”.“Raw-milk camembert is not in danger,” he said. — Reuters [...]
