Missing engine: Hadi says heads would roll in the west

The disappearance of a F-5E fighter jet engine owned by the Royal Malaysia Air Force (RMAF) shows that the country's defence system is not strong, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang said today.

Abdul Hadi told this to reporters after opening the PAS bloggers convention at the party headquarters in Taman Melewar near here.

Yesterday, Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the engine, worth RM50 million and discovered missing in 2007, had been sold to an international company based in South America.

Meanwhile, Abdul Hadi said Pakatan Rakyat , which comprised PKR, DAP and PAS, had not been registered as a political party because they did not want to do it in haste.

He said what was important was to achieve their political objectives and to cooperate by giving their views, although they did not share the same ideology. - Bernama
