Kiram daughter claims uncle killed in Sabah
DAVAO CITY, Philippines—Sultan Jamalul Kiram III’s daughter, Jacel, claimed here Wednesday that Malaysian policemen arrested and later executed a cousin of her father identified as Ustadz Jamjam Sali last Sunday.
There has been no previous report of the alleged killing of Sali or any arrest conducted by Malaysian authorities on Sunday.
The Philippine Daily Inquirer called up a Sabah-based reporter and he said he had not heard of any “terrorist” killed by Malaysian security forces on Sunday.
Jacel said the killing of her uncle was disclosed to the Kiram family in a telephone call conversation with her father’s younger brother, Agbimuddin Kiram, who said Sali was arrested in Lahad Datu on Sunday after Malaysian security officials had ascertained he was a Kiram relative.
“My uncle and his family have been living in Sabah since the 1990s,” Jacel said.
She said, however, that details of the arrest and eventual killing of her uncle were unclear as of Wednesday.
