My country is now on full alert as the manhunt continues into the fifth day for Mas Selamat Kastari, the leader of terrorist group, Jemaah Islamiah.
Mas Selamat Kastari escaped last Wednesday afternoon from the Whitley Detention Centre where he was detained under the Internal Security Act, which reserves the right to detain anyone without trial.
Meanwhile security agencies were confident that he hasn't left Singapore because he was acting alone and received no aid. However, they also mentioned that, as a trained mechanic, he could jumpstart vehicles to aid his escape.
According to friends in Singapore, telcos are circulating his photos via MMS to all their subscribers in the effort to help identifying him.
On a lighter side, our local humour site, Talking Cock, questioned the effectiveness of circulating his photograph because if he was "smart enough to escape ISD HQ, you think he wen go and find some more powderful disguise, meh?"
As a contribution to our national security, the website also posted an Escaped Terrorist Spotter guide (below) for the public to print out and keep in their wallets to help identify him regardless of what disguise he's in. Oh that's cute...
After a year in hiding, Mas Selamat Kastari, Singapore’s Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) leader who escaped from Whitley Road Detention Centre last year, has reportedly been arrested in Malaysia. Yes, the little children of Singapore can sleep a little better at night from today onwards. =P
