KUALA LUMPUR: The former chief of Malaysia’s espionage agency, Datuk Hasanah Abdul Hamid (pic), has come out in defence of her letter to the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), saying it is not an act of treason.

Her lawyer Datuk Shaharudin Ali, when asked by journalists about who might be responsible for leaking the letter, merely replied: “My client has given some instructions to me on this matter and I believe she will confer with the investigating officer in the next few days.”
