My jovial friend and fellow mariner Capt. Leibbrandt (you may have seen him playing colonial mat salleh types in some local made-for-TV movies) was mugged and robbed while on his way home a couple of nights ago. He was also slashed with a parang at the back of his neck. My Dutchman friend is a tough nut to crack but bleeding profusely, it was fortunate that his neighbour was just reversing his car to go out for dinner with his wife. They drove him to a nearby clinic where he was given 7 stitches and an anti tetanus injection.
The assailants were four mat rempit on two motorcycles. They had shouted "Mati!" when they attacked him. The captain regrets having had to report that they were Melayu for fear the case will just be treated NFA ... no further action.
What is happening to our beloved country?
