Amnesty after amnesty have been given to illegal immigrant’s to leave the State however it seems they are not taking the government’s amnesty seriously. Islamic Welfare Body (Nibisa) founder D. Zulkflie Mohd Masir rightly said that former Sabah CM Tan Sri Chong Kah Kiat gave the illegals a final amnesty. The PM also did give a similar amnesty.

Did that really work? Has it reduced the number of illegals in the State? If the illegals are serious in wanting to go back to their homeland willingly, they should do it by now knowing very well that a big scale operation to be organised by the Government is round the corner.

As per the statement by the State Immigration Director that caning is not an effective deterrent, I hope this is not because the caning may be done lightly.

It is high time that local employers or individuals be also caned for harbouring or employing PTIs. Paying fine is definitely not a deterrent.

Those towkeys caught harbouring PTIs are rich and paying fines is no big deal for them.They can always pass the cost to the consumers and continue to employ or harbour PTIs.

As the saying goes, if you want to kill the dog, cut the head and not it’s tail. So go for the employer or landlord.

The local authorities should also be reprimanded as concrete action to control the PTIs in their district has not been carried out regularly. Ketuas Kampung must also take responsibility as they should know how to distinguish PTIs from locals.

But, to sad say, some Ketuas Kampung are in collaboration by harbouring the PTIs, getting payments from them to stay in their village.

The Government should set up a call centre in every district where anyone with information on PTIs can make a report. They should be rewarded for the information. I’m sure jobless local youths would be very happy to assist if monetary rewards are given.

Also, the Sabah ACA Director, should update the people of Sabah on what happen to the case of NRD officers caught issuing illegal I/C to PTIs.

Sabahans are fed-up with such treacherous act by some personnel in NRD, etc, where they are supposed to safeguard the security of the country.

KOTA KINABALU: Local residents are advised to always bring along their MyKad or risk being arrested when the massive operation to flush out illegal immigrants begins next month.

The Federal Special Task Force (FSTF) has begun erecting some 1,000 banners at strategic locations to remind the locals on the matter.

“The operation would be comprehensive, with no stone to be left unturned. As such, locals must make sure they have their MyKad with them to avoid problems,” said FSTF assistant director Major Mohd Rizam Ayob.

He said the banners also serve as a reminder to illegal immigrants to voluntarily return to their country of origin before the operation begins.

Dubbed Ops Nyah II, the operation would cost the government RM50 million.

Illegal immigrants in Sabah are mostly from the Philippines and Indonesia, and their total was estimated to be more than 500,000.

The last major operation against illegal immigrants in the state was in 2002 with more than 200,000 undocumented Filipinos and Indonesians arrested and deported.

With the political will of the leaders, corruption can be checked and reduced to a more tolerable level. I won’t say eliminated as even Singapore has not been able to achieve that.

The bad news is that with a tainted Immigration system, Malaysia is also under the spotlight by the UK authorities and we may soon be required to apply for visas.

I suggest that ACA also check if the arrested officers had any links to those who provided documents to the thousands of illegals in Sabah.

Here, I once again wish to ask the Sabah ACA director, what has happened since the arrest of several NRD officers in Sabah a few months back.

I have been forwarding this question to her but she prefers to be silent. Orang Sabah tak mudah lupawhen it comes to the PTI!

To the ACA (Hq), well done! Keep up with the good work and I am sure most Malaysians will support your efforts. I hope ACA Sabah would have the same guts.
