Fikrie's family regrets terrorist label

PONTIAN, Dec 20 (Bernama) -- The family of Mohd Noor Fikrie Abd Kahar, 26, the Malaysian national who was shot dead by Philippine police in Davao, last Friday, regretted that he had been labelled as a terrorist.

According to his younger brother, Mohd Noor Hafiz, 24, the whole family deeply regretted the label used whereas the Philippine authorities had only described his elder brother as a suspect.

"Although it was only one word, it was enough to tarnish and bring down the image of the whole family," he said, describing the deceased as a brother and father who was good, responsible and liked to smile.

Looking sad after the burial of his eldest brother at the Parit Abdul Rahman Muslim Cemetery, here this morning, he hoped that Mohd Noor Fikrie would no longer be labelled as a terrorist.

Also present at the burial were Mohd Noor Fikrie's wife Siti Sarah Raihana and their three chirdren Aina Sofia, 6, Aisyah Nadia, 5 and Yati Izati, 4, and his parents.
