PETALING JAYA: Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has criticised Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for trying to score political points with baseless claims that the Government knows more than what it has told the people about Flight MH370.
He said Anwar had sunk to “a new low” over another allegation that there was a possibility that the Government was “complicit” over what happened in the plane.
“@anwaribrahim implying that Msian authorities are complicit in #MH370 is as ludicrous as it is offensive. AI has clearly sunk to a new low,” he said over Twitter.
In an interview with British newspaper The Telegraph, Anwar claimed that the Government was hiding critical information about the missing flight.
Anwar added that he authorised the installation of the country’s radar systems when he was Finance Minister, and that they were one of the most sophisticated to have been placed near the South China Sea.
“I find it clearly baffling for anyone to suggest that they cannot read or they fail to detect (the plane),” he told The Telegraph.
Disputing Anwar, Khairy said Malaysian military jets could not have been scrambled as it was not in a state of war, adding that the Boeing 777 was also not an unknown aircraft coming from overseas and that civilian aircraft frequently changed courses.
