Lahad Datu: Dr Mahathir questions hidden hands behind Sulu intrusions
BY NICHOLAS CHENG
KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad raised questions over hidden hands at play behind the Lahad Datu intrusions.
Though he did not surmise any links between the Sulu sultanate and any Malaysian political parties, Dr Mahathir said the self-styled Sultan must have had financiers.
"All operations cost money. I don't think the Sultan is a rich man. According to the Philippines government, he is very poor.
"So where is the money coming from?" Mahathir asked during a Perdana Global Peace Foundation cheque presentation ceremony at Yayasan Al-Bukhary Friday.
The RM80,000 cheque will go the families of the fallen heroes killed in the Lahad Datu clashes.
