Mat Sabu: Ex-IGP Abdul Rahim chosen based on merit

KUALA LUMPUR: Former Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Noor was chosen as the new facilitator for the southern Thailand peace talks based on merits, says Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu.

He said Abdul Rahim was appointed because of his key role in the Hat Yai 1989 Peace Agreement, which marked the end of the Communist insurgency in Malaysia.
