"Lucky" Malik Imtiaz. My lead counsel* was at the Brisbane airport the other day when he was "pounced" by security officers and put through a "more thorough check". They screened him and his luggage for traces of explosives and whatever else that a terrorist is supposed to carry with him/her.
After the ordeal, one of the airport security officers told him he was "really lucky". But lucky for what?
Read Malik's Flying the safe and friendly skies and pray you don't get lucky when you are at an airport Down Under.
* Malik leads the legal team defending Jeff Ooi and I against the suits filed separately against us by NSTP and its officers and a former editor. My case is up for mention again on 5 Sept while Jeff has a date at the High Court on 911.
p.s. Malik can actually pass off as a Pakistani, Indian, Palestinian, Jew, Afghan, Malaysian, Singaporean, and even an Arab sheikh (if he puts on a headgear).
