BAGAN DATOH: The Royal Malaysia Air Force (RMAF) F-5E fighter jet engine missing since 2007 was sold to an international company based in South Africa, said Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
He said the company was believed to have hired an agent to bring the RM50mil engine out of the country.
“The ministry will take legal action at the international level to charge the company involved.
“Stern action will also be taken against RMAF involved for betraying the country,” he told reporters after launching an environmental programme here Saturday.
Ahmad Zahid confirmed that all documents pertaining to the sale of the engine had been obtained by the police.
“The international company was interested in buying the engine because the price was cheap, as it was a spare part categorised as faulty and would be repaired,” he said.
Local dailies reported Saturday that police had arrested four individuals, including RMAF officers, in connection with the missing F-5E fighter jet engine. -- Bernama
