A Malaysian police officer met with the elder brother of Agbimuddin Kiram two months before the intrusion of the followers of the sultan of Sulu in February that led to the deaths of more than 70 people.
Malacañang on Sunday said the schedule of the Sultan of Brunei Haji Hassanal Bolkiah during his two-day visit to the country this week was “too tight” to accommodate a meeting with Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III.
The Malaysian police on Sunday released the identity of the Sulu “royal army” commander, who was captured in Semporna district on Saturday, amid speculations in Sabah he could be Agbimuddin Kiram.
