The 36-year-old Israeli was arrested at a hotel in Jalan Ampang here on March 27. He is believed to have entered the country from the United Arab Emirates on March 12, using a French passport.

Preliminary investigations found that the suspect, who also holds an Israeli passport, claimed he came to Malaysia to hunt down and kill another Israeli national over a family dispute.

On April 8, a local couple suspected of supplying firearms to the Israeli man were charged in the Klang Sessions Court for firearms offences.
