Six people were killed in a helicopter crash in Malaysia, including the former Envoy to the US, and a high ranking member of the Prime Minister's staff.

Azlin Alias, Chief of Staff for the Prime Minister, and Jamaluddin Jarjis, former Malaysian ambassador to the US and chairman of PR1MA Malaysia were both on board the helicopter when it crashed near Kampung Pasir Baru.

The flight recorder has been recovered in good condition, and a report is expected within a week.


A helicopter crash Saturday in Malaysia killed six people, including the nation's former ambassador to the United States and a high-ranking member of the prime minister's staff, the Malaysian state news agency Bernama reported.

The helicopter crashed near Kampung Pasir Baru in Semenyih, at 4:55 p.m. Saturday (4:55 a.m. ET), Bernama said.

Prime Minister Najib Razak ordered an investigation.

Among the victims were Azlin Alias, who worked on the prime minister's staff, and Jamaluddin Jarjis, former Malaysian ambassador to the United States and chairman of PR1MA Malaysia, Bernama said. PR1MA is an organization that develops housing in urban centers.

Found this on the job he was doing:




Azlin Left Corporate World To Serve The Government - PM
KUALA LUMPUR, April 5 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Azlin Alias, 47, the Prime Minister's chief private secretary, is a certified accountant who left the corporate world to serve the government.

The Petaling Jaya-born Azlin, started his career with Tenaga Nasional Bhd after graduating from the University of New South Wales Sydney, Australia with a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in accounting degree in 1989.

He held several management positions in TNB in his five-year tenure in the national utility company, including as its Investor Relations Head before moving to Phileo Allied Securities as its Equity Analyst for a year till 1996, before moving to Caspian Research for two years (1996-1998), and as senior Equity Research Analyst, Nomura Advisory Services from Sept 1998 to May 2004.

He was involved in equity research, dealings and corporate advisory work while serving the several participating organisations of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad.

In May 2004, he was appointed Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Avenue Securities Sdn Bhd for a year, responsible for business development, strategic planning, marketing and advising the equity research team in enhancing the research products and profile to institutional clients.

Azlin then moved up the corporate sector ladder when appointed Chief Executive Officer/Executive Director of Malaysian Technology Development Corporation Sdn Bhd, a venture capital company under the Khazanah Nasional Berhad Group from 2005 to May 2008.

He was the Prime Minister's Department Economics Division director before being appointed chief private secretary to the Prime Minister effective March 10, 2014.

Azlin was once voted as "the best research analyst" in 2003 by The Edge, and team member for the research team at Avenue Securities which was voted as the "Most Improved Local Research House" and "Second Best Local Research House" by The Edge Weekly in 2004.

Azlin leaves behind wife Datin Seri Azlina Mahmad and three children, two boys and a girl.

Najib in a press conference last night described Azlin, 'Chief of Staff' in the Prime Minister's Office where his role was to decide on various important matters related to office affairs.

"Personally he had agreed to leave the corporate sector to serve the government as his national service," Najib said adding that Azlin had worked with dedication, trust and got along well with everyone.

"His death will be a great loss for me," added Najib.


whenever i see something like this, i always think "what did they find", and "what didn't they want getting out"

or it was just an accident, but lets face it, were all on this site, because we question the norm...

Granted helicopters crash more than fixed wing aircraft, but to have both of them on a helicopter that just happened to crash, and kill everyone on board is something to pay attention to.

Mmmmmm, interesting:




“It exploded completely, disintegrated in mid-air; it didn’t crash, the rotor and tail section were flung all over the place,” Roslan Harun, a 54-year-old security guard who was on duty near the scene, told Bernama.

That sounds suspiciously like someone planted a bomb and assassinated someone on board.

Yeah, they tend to remain intact until hitting the ground, and then exploding.

story is is was transporting people to a wedding,




They left a wedding reception for the Prime Minister's daughter in Pekan and were headed for Kuala Lumpur where Rompin MP Tan Sri Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis was to attend another wedding reception.

They never made it.

The helicopter carrying Jamaluddin, the special envoy to the United States; principal private secretary to the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Azlin Alias; pilot Capt Clifford Fournier; co-pilot Eidiana Baiziera; businessman Datuk Robert Tan, Jamaluddin's bodyguard Mohd Razkan Seran, 32, exploded in mid-air and crashed in Semenyih, just minutes away from its destination.

They said it was in heavy rains at the time. It was a chartered Dauphin helicopter apparently. They have a good safety record and have been flying for many years.

The Dauphin first flew in 1975. There have been 13 accidents since 1995, including two this year (this being one). The last two crashes have been in Korea.

The front page posts are all due to activity in thread. There's no way to put something there.

The pilot was from Minnesota, and was a former Marine. Both recorders are being sent to London for analysis. We probably won't hear much for a few more days.
