MALAYSIA’S prime minister, Najib Razak, reportedly once held a meeting with a Turkish man who is one of three currently detained by Malaysian police for allegedly threatening national security.


News outlet the Guardian published images of the Malaysian premier meeting Turgay Karaman before Najib’s first official trip to Turkey in 2011. Karaman was the secretary general of the Malaysian-Turkish Dialogue Society.


The Guardian claims the photograph is one of several taken during an event. It also claims there are images showing the PM and his wife, Rosmah Mansor, next to Karaman.


Karaman, the head of an international school in Malaysia, was arrested on Tuesday. He is being detained with two other Turkish nationals, Ihsan Aslan, a businessman and Ismet Ozcelik, the director of a Turkish university.
Malaysia’s Inspector-General of Police, Khalid Abu Bakar, says Ozcelik had known both Karaman and Aslan but did not comment on media reports that the two men were linked to the Islamic State or that they are supporters of U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen.

Their arrests come amid concerns from Human Rights Watch that Turkish nationals in Malaysia are being held as a consequence of pressure from Ankara.
“(The police) need to reveal a whole lot more information about these cases before people are going to seriously believe that Ankara had nothing to do with it,” Phil Robertson, Asia deputy director of Human Rights Watch, told Reuters.
