Twenty Afghan national escape lock up in Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur: Twenty Afghan nationals detained at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport by Immigration Department escaped from police lockup, prompting Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin demanding stern action against those responsible.
The accused were detained yesterday.
This is the second such case in the past two months.
"Such a case has happened twice. Certainly, something is not right. We don`t want the matter to recur," he said after chairing a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Foreign Workers and Illegal Immigrants, here today.
The detainees, aged between 25 and 40, were suspected of cutting the grills of the two gates before escaping. Earlier, on April 27, 12 Afghanistan and four Myanmar nationals, aged between 22 and 48, also escaped via the opening on the grills, national news agency Bernama said.
