KUALA LUMPUR: Abductors of two women from a resort off Semporna have demanded RM36.4mil for the release of a Chinese tourist, Home Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi revealed.
"We have received a note that the kidnappers have asked for 500mil pesos or RM36.4mil as ransom.
"We have sent our team to discuss with the so-called reported middle person," he told reporters here Thursday.
Zahid added that there has been no ransom demand for the Filipina hostage.
On April 2, Chinese tourist Gao Huayun (pic), 29, and Filipina resort worker Marcy Dayawan, 40, were abducted from the Singamata Reef Resort in Semporna by seven gunmen believed linked to the Abu Sayyaf militant group.
