‪#‎prnsarawak‬ Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has advised political parties against politicising the recent kidnapping of four Malaysian sailors during the campaigning season in Sarawak.

According to Datuk Seri Zahid, the kidnapping is a security and humanitarian issue and the situation should not be taken advantage by any political party.

It is understood that the family members of the 4 men, who were kidnapped by Filipino militants last month, had attended several 'ceramah' hosted by DAP in Sarawak.

It is believed that the family members of those kidnapped had attended the political rallies to collect donations from the public in order to pay the RM2 million ransom demanded by the militants.

The four sailors were kidnapped off a cargo ship passing close to the southern Philippines on April 1.
