'I thought kidnappings and hijackings are only seen in movies...

It was raining very heavily earlier. The road at Bukit Tunku was blocked by a fallen tree and I was running late. When I reached office, the representatives from the Vessel company and TLDM were already in the vault counting the ransom money and packing them in water-proof bags. It didn’t take them long to pack as the money was counted earlier on Friday till late night, witnessed by their bank and my three custodians.

The rescue operation was supposed to be a small quiet one but by berbuka time, the whole contingent including police escorts and our polis bantuan were 80 people in total. We had packed nasi beriani dinner and after solat magrib the consignment started off to Subang TUDM Airport for the 9 pm flight to deliver the money.

We pray for the operation to be successful and all involved will come home safely for the Hari Raya celebration…
