Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (PKR-Machang) demanded that Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak explain a two-minute video clip showing military commandos being tortured by their trainers.
Saifuddin said he received the video clip in VCD format last week and offered the VCD to Najib yesterday during the wrapping up of the debate on the royal address.
However, he said Najib who is also Defence Minister, was not interested to explain the video.
“As a political secretary to defence minister from 1994 to 1996, I understood the training of the commandos but I had never seen any training like that. I want to know if the module is acceptable as this is about human dignity. The families of these soldiers did not send their sons to be tortured,” he told reporters in Parliament lobby today.
Saifuddin said from what he saw in the video clip, the trainers seemed to be enjoying the alleged torture.
“If this is within the knowledge of the minister, he should give the public a responsible explanation and what action has been taken on the trainers,” he said.
