PETALING JAYA: Muhammad Rizalman Ismail, 38, worked as a staff assistant (defence) at the Malaysian High Commission in Wellington, New Zealand, for the past year.
According to an official from the Defence Ministry, a staff assistant (defence) in a Malaysian mission overseas is generally assigned to defence duties pertaining to the embassy or high commission.
“He reports to the defence attache, and his job is to assist in managing security on the property of the mission, which is considered sovereign land.
“However, the job scope comprises mostly administrative work, such as handling visitor entry/exit logs and other relevant paperwork,” he said when contacted.
Muhammad Rizalman’s Facebook page states that he moved to New Zealand’s capital city with his wife and three children in October last year.
This was his first overseas posting.
He is ranked Second Warrant Officer in the Malaysian Armed Forces.
Servicemen with this rank are rank-and-file personnel and have to be promoted to First Warrant Officer followed by Officer Cadet before they are considered officers.
A Warrant Officer 2 is above Staff Sergeant in rank.
