DPM Zahid says foreign agents may be involved in killing of Palestinian lecturer

Malaysian authorities are looking into the possible involvement of foreign agents in the murder of a Palestinian private university lecturer in front of a condominium in Kuala Lumpur Saturday morning (April 21), the New Straits Times Online reported.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamid said authorities are not ruling out the possibility based on how the lecturer, Dr Fadi Mohammad al-Batsh, 35, was gunned down.

Two men reportedly arrived on a BMW GS motorcycle at Dr Fadi’s condominium and wait for him until he emerged from the condominium.  Then one of them, the gunman, fired at least 10 rounds into the victim as he was walking towards a nearby surau for the Subhu prayer.

“I am saddened by all this and according to police information, the victim had been staying here for 10 years and an expert in electric engineering and building rocket,” said the deputy prime minister, adding that the killing could have some links with foreign intelligence agencies.

Police said they are investigating every angle, including terrorism angle.  Initial investigation showed that the victim did not have any financial problem or known enemies.

Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said the notion that Mossad and Zionist agents were penetrating the country’s borders was a disturbing thought for the people.

He said the Mossad was known for assassination Muslim leaders throughout the world, including in western countries.

He urged the government to investigate the killing and be cautious with Israel.

Al Jazeera quoted the victim’s father as saying definitely that Mossad was suspected of being responsible for the murder.
