KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has slammed Datuk Mohamaddin Ketapi for allegedly insulting Malaysian security forces and claiming the Lahad Datu incident was a mere political ploy. The Senior Minister (Security) said the Parti Warisan Sabah politician's statement that the incident was a "drama" for political gains of certain parties is a grave insult to the security forces. "It is also besmirched on their sacrifices, especially 10 personnel who lost their lives during the incident in 2013. "All parties should not touch on sensitive issues, especially on safety and sovereignty, that could spark anger and discomfort on others," Ismail Sabri said. "I would never insult and have never made fun of the security forces," the Warisan candidate for the Segama state seat had said earlier on Monday.
