Police detained four IS-linked foreigners in Sandakan

7th December, 2017

KUALA LUMPUR: Anti terror crack force has detained four foreign men in Sandakan on Monday.

The suspects are said to have connections with the Islamic State (IS) terror group.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said the men were high on police’s wanted list. “The four men were foreigners from a neighbouring country.

“They were believed to have come to Sandakan to use it as a transit point to enter the southern Philippines,” he told a press conference yesterday.

It has yet to be ascertained whether the men were arrested as they were slipping into the country or as they were crossing into southern Philippines.

He said the men, aged between 31 and 40, were arrested under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (SOSMA). Fuzi however did not elaborate on the arrests.
