Ops Ngerapuh Picking Up Speed
Following the PM's visit to Sarawak's rural areas on 23 February 2010 where he made the pledge to help bring back the remains of the Iban Trackers and Sarawak Rangers who were KIA and buried throughout the Peninsula and Singapore, things started to move quickly. Presumably, the words / instructions had gone down to the Defence Minister, then to the Chief of the Armed Forces, then down to the Army Chief. Finally, it went down to the Malaysian Rangers Corp Chairman, Brig Gen Dato' Zulkifli. When I received a sms from the Commanding Officer 9 Rangers on 1 March 2010, informing me that Gen Zulkifli wanted to know more on Ops Ngerapuh, I was actually in KL attending a business seminar. Anyway, I made an appointment to see and brief him on Ops Ngerapuh on 2 March 2010.
