Lahad Datu: Incident an intrusion not war; Sulu gunmen to be charged with murder, says Nazri

KUALA LUMPUR: De facto law minister Nazri (pix) said Tuesday the Lahad Datu incident was an intrusion not a war.

"This is an intrusion into our sovereignty not a war.

"Because it is an intrusion, the situation is better dealt by the police," he said.

Asked about how the Sulu gunmen would be treated, he said if it was a war, the Geneva Convention would come into play.

"If they've broke the laws of Malaysia, they can be charged in court," said Nazri.

He added they would definitely be charged for murder.

In the skirmishes between the Sulu armed intruders and the Malaysian security forces, eight policemen were killed.
