KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 13 – The government does not practise the act of paying ransom to abductors, even if the abductee is a policeman. Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the family of Marine Police Constable Zakia Aliep who was by kidnapped armed men in Pulau Mabul, Semporna in July, had come to seek for his help yesterday.

“They asked me and the government to assist them in getting the RM3 million requested by the abductors to get the constable released. “However I had to be stern and stick by the government’s principle not to pay any ransom asked by the abductors,” he said in a press conference in Bukit Aman Police headquarters today.
