Hishammuddin receives two live bullets, threatening note


Hishammuddin Tun Hussein

KUALA LUMPUR: Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein yesterday received two live bullets with a threatening note in an envelope posted to his office in Putrajaya.

The envelope, which was received at 2pm, also contained a booklet in which the note was slipped in.

Met by reporters after attending a breaking of fast function at the Al-Ikhlasiyah mosque di Pantai Dalam here, Hishammuddin, however, declined to say what were the contents of the note.

“I can confirm that I received two live bullets together with a threatening note today (yesterday). This is the first time I have experienced such a thing.

“The envelope was received by an aide of mine and he has since lodged a police report,” he said. Hishammuddin, however, said it would not dampen his spirit to continue discharging his duties as entrusted to him.

“I view this as something serious. However, it will not deter me from carrying out my duties as entrusted to me by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak,” he added. — Bernama
