I know that it’s a misleading title, but read the following and you’d most likely agree. I personally don’t think a syndicate was behind it…all these Afghans most likely had undetectable stealth armour of some sort, and competently handled the guards in the vicinity. They then reinforced their escape by crawling into cardboard boxes and oil drums, under the cover of darkness.
To be honest with you, I think Malaysia’s armed personnel suffer from serious cases of Sleeping Guard Syndrome. It’s good to know that we never throw away the key when we lock you up…that is, of course, unless you’re a Malaysian and not a foreigner who’s being held.

Escaped Afghan detainees: Muhyiddin wants stern action
PUTRAJAYA: Deputy Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin wants stern action against those responsible, following the escape early Sunday of 20 Afghan nationals being detained at the KL International Airport (KLIA) Immigrant Detention Depot.
The Deputy Prime Minister said a committee had been formed to investigate whether the matter involved a syndicate.
“Such a case has happened twice. Certainly, something is not right. We don’t want the matter to recur,” he said after chairing a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Foreign Workers and Illegal Immigrants, here Monday.
In the 3am incident, the detainees, aged between 25 and 40, were suspected of cutting the grills of the two gates before escaping.
Earlier, on April 27, 12 Afghanistan and four Myanmar nationals, aged between 22 and 48, escaped via the opening on the grills, which were cut, before escaping by climbing over the perimeter fence of the same detention centre. – Bernama
