Dr M Attack - Well Done Pak Lah For Immediate Action.

Expressing regret over the tear gas incident which befell Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in Kota Baharu Friday, the prime minister ordered the police to conduct an immediate investigation and to take stern action against those responsible for the act.

"I regret and am very angry such an incident has happened," Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who is also Internal Security Minister told Bernama, noting that he was informed by the police on the incident. "I have directed the Deputy Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan for the police to take immediate action to probe the incident and to take stern action against those who have committed the act," he said.

The former prime minister who arrived in Kota Baharu this morning for a one-day visit to Kelantan, was forced to cancel his speech to an awaiting crowd at the Sultan Ismail Petra Airport when an unknown person sprayed tear gas into his face. Dr Mahathir was seen coughing as he stood in a sun-roof four wheel-drive to begin his speech using a loudhailer at about 11 am. More than 1,000 people had gathered at the airport to wait for the arrival of the former premier.

Abdullah said those responsible for the incident should be severely punished. He said the matter should be immediately resolved to avoid negative implications and misconception among the public. The prime minister also feared that certain quarters would take advantage of the incident by disseminating rumours, especially through the Internet.

"As such, the police must be fast in tackling the issue by taking immediate and stern action," said Abdullah.

**** The PM is of course right, that taking advantage of the incident, unscrupulous people may cast aspersions on him personally and the government in general. I'm very glad that he came out so strongly against the attack and it would be good if he could use this opportunity to go see Mahathir, inquire about his health and see if he is amenable to sorting out matters if it is at all possible.
