Police say attack on Myanmar national linked to Rakhine riots

Posted by Arakan Indobhasa Wednesday, February 12, 2014

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 13 ― Police believe the attempted assassination of a Myanmar political party leader in the heart of the city is connected to another murder case where the body of a political activist of the same nationality was found  in a car boot in Ampang last week.

Sources said that Dr Aye Maung who headed the state of Rakhine Nationalities Development Party (RNDP) was made up of a majority of the Buddhist community, was believed to be a target due to the manner he handled the ethnic riots at the place recently.

Aye Maung was chairman of a commission set up by the Myanmar government to investigate reports of the long standoff between the Buddhist and Muslims in Rakhine and Yangon.
City acting CID Chief ACP Khairi Ahrasa said investigations by a special squad found the attempted murder of Aye Maung and the murder of the political activist in Ampang may have been committed by the same person.

“We believe both incidents are somehow connected and it was because of the political instability in Myanmar,” he said.

Last week, five Myanmar nationals consisting political party leaders and activist including Aye Maung escaped death when two men on a motorcycle fired several shots at their direction (car) in Jalan Alor, Bukit Bintang.

The group had just left Plaza Low Yat when the shots rang out at 11.30pm.
Khairi said police were reviewing CCTV footage along the path used by Aye Maung and the four others with him to identify the shooters.

“We have also requested assistance from the Myanmar embassy here to establish the identity of the two motorcyclists who tried to assassinate political leaders here,” he said.

Khairi said the political leaders and activists were here for an internal meeting, however they did not inform the Malaysian authorities over their arrival.

A night before the attempted assassination, the political activist was found dead inside a car boot with stab wounds on his neck and head in Ampang.

A passer-by, who saw a parked Nissan Sunny by the roadside, suspected something amiss on seeing blood stains on the car.

The man alerted police who arrived at the scene. Upon checking the vehicle, they found the body.
