Mositun's statement confusing, says SAPP

KOTA KINABALU - Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) Deputy President Edward Dagul said Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Secretary-General Datuk Johnny Mositun's statement that the Technical Working Committee on Illegal Immigrants report has been completed and handed over to the central committee is new.

He said if the matter is already at the implementation stage than why was United Pasok Momogun Kadazandusun Murut Acting President Datuk Seri Wilfred Madius Tangau left out of the loop over such development.

"It was reported on another article yesterday that Tangau had requested that a State BN meeting be convened as soon as possible to discuss the finding of the Technical Working Committee chaired by the Deputy Chief Minister, Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan," he said.

Such call was made in response to the Mositun's statement on Sunday, on the illegal immigrants issue in Sabah and the so-called recommendations of the Technical Working Committee on illegal immigrants chaired by PBS President Pairin.

"Sabahans will no longer tolerate statements made to purposely confuse the masses. As this issue is of great importance, they deserve answers.

"Is the report still being discussed by the various "vetting" authorities or has it already been approved for implementation?

It cannot be at both stages; so, this simple yet glaring confusion must be explained to the people of Sabah," said Edward.

In addition, he said it was absurd for Mositun to suggest no time frame was given to resolve the matter, although it is of utmost urgency for many.

"How many more kidnappings or illegal immigrant related crimes need to occur before this is resolved?

If this "no time frame" syndrome, in any way, reflects the committee's mindset, than either the persons charged to complete the work are incapable or that they just lack the political will. Either way, it show that the committee has failed and for that, the committee should do the right and honourable thing and resign," he said.
