“We also encourage you, all of you, if you have some information that you want to share with us. If you see something, you don’t say something, what will we do? You see something, you say something and we will do it all. All the security, military, police, immigration, prisons all of us will do something. So we are appealing to all of you and we want you to go to sleep without fear that somebody hiding somewhere will harm you,” TV3 quoted him.
