PETALING JAYA: His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, King of Malaysia (pic), has expressed his condolences to the families of the two policemen killed in the line of duty in Johor, while the Prime Minister has demanded firm action against those causing chaos.

Sultan Ibrahim expressed sadness over the deaths of Konst Ahmad Azza Fahmi Azhar and Konst Muhamad Syafiq Ahmad Said following the early morning attack at the Ulu Tiram police station yesterday.

“Al-Fatihah to these two national heroes who had perished in this tragedy. May they be placed among the righteous and virtuous,” said the post on His Majesty’s Facebook page.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has directed the police to promptly find the masterminds behind the incident and bring them to justice.

“This incident is truly heartbreaking and has shocked the nation, and I extend my condolences to the families,” he posted on Facebook.

Meanwhile, at a press conference earlier in Kazakhstan, the Prime Minister called for firm action to be taken against anyone attempting to create chaos to the extent of causing deaths.

Expressing support for the police, Anwar also urged the public to cooperate with the authorities.

“We do not compromise on matters of peace; the government will be firm. The lives of the people are our priority, and progress means nothing if peace is not maintained.

“Strong measures will be taken to stop this madness (violence), and I fully support the steps taken by the police.

“I ask the public to cooperate, always be vigilant, and not give this evil group any opportunities,” he said.

Anwar also said firm action would be taken against those who play up issues concerning the position of the Malay Rulers.

“We want stern action, no compromise; we want the country to be respected. When the country is respected globally, the economy will improve,” he said.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail also extended his condolences to the families of Konst Ahmad Azza and Konst Muhamad Syafiq.

The ministry, he said, was praying for the quick recovery of Kpl Mohd Hasif Roslan who was injured in the attack.

MCA Youth chief Ling Tian Soon conveyed his condolences to the families of the victims.

He said the public should avoid speculating about the case and allow the police to carry out an unhindered investigation.

He said MCA Youth also hoped that public safety would be enhanced.

“It is expedient to ensure that Malaysia is free from the influence of any extremist groups and terrorists who threaten the security and sovereignty of the country,” Ling said.

PAS secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan said the party was saddened by the deaths of the two police personnel, and also hoped for the speedy recovery of the third cop who was injured in the incident.
