Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the security situation in eastern Sabah was not under any threat following the murder of a Taiwanese man and abduction of his wife off the Pom Pom Island resort.

“It remains intact because so far the reports showed that it was not like the Lahad Datu incursion.

“This kind of thing (the shooting of the Taiwanese tourist and abduction of his wife) can happen anywhere but that doesn’t mean the security in the area is under threat,” he said after chairing the Transport Ministry’s post-Cabinet meeting. He is also the Acting Transport Minister.

Hishamuddin said the shooting and abduction should not be taken as a sign that defence in the Eastern Sabah Safety Zone (Esszone) had been breached.

“Esszone was set up to counter insurgency and terrorist-like threats. From what I have been told, I don’t see how this incident could be linked to insurgency.
