"I fully respect the authority of the Australian government under whose protection I am and I need to respect Australia. I do not wish to make a statement at this moment. However, I will try to make a statement at a more approprate time.
"I would also like to thank all Malaysian media for their coverage and I would to express my heartfelt gratitude to the Australian government, which has provided me with full protection, besides safe and comfortable accomodation," Sirul said.
