Recall all MyKads issued in Sabah – Upko president

Posted by Smookiekins On 3/27/2013 10:06:00 AM
PENAMPANG: United Pasokmomogun KadazanDusun Murut Organization (Upko) president Tan Sri Bernard Dompok has asked for all Malaysian identity cards issued in Sabah to be recalled and re-issued to only those identified as genuine Sabahans.

This will ensure that those not eligible or have obtained the identification documents through dubious means are vetted out, Dompok said at the launching of the ‘Gelombang Tataba’ (Church Assistance) on Sunday.

‘Operasi Tataba’ (Church Assistance) is an exercise initiated by KadazanDusun Murut-based Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties in Sabah, namely Upko, PBS and PBRS to provide assistance to churches in the state.

The launching ceremony by Upko, PBS and PBRS presidents was held at Hongkod Koisaan here.

Dompok who is also Plantation Industry and Commodities Minister, said he would be proposing to the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on the presence of illegal immigrants in Sabah so that Malaysian identification cards issued so far in Sabah must be returned to the relevant authorities and new identification cards issued to Sabahans.

“This will provide an opportunity for us in Sabah to prove the authenticity of our citizenship so that only genuine Sabahans will be issued with citizenship documents like the new identity card,” the Penampang MP stressed.

When pointed out that his proposal for a new identity card for Sabahans was similar to SAPP’s suggestion that Sabah be issued a ‘Sabahan identity card’, Dompok responded by saying that he was not aware of the other proposal.

“What I am saying here is that it is very obvious that we have to take this opportunity to reset things in Sabah and as you can see, a lot of people are disturbed by the arrival of uninvited guests by way of the sea.

“I was told that there are a lot of others who have got identity cards. It is now difficult to ascertain the legality of the identification documents. I feel that the only way is to collect all these identity cards and give fresh cards so that it can settle once and for all who exactly are the citizens of this country and who are eligible to become natives of Sabah.

“I am going to propose it to the RCI. I did suggest also that all the parties in Sabah get together to put up proposals for the federal cabinet to discuss and decide what is there to be done. My proposal is to review all the identity cards that were issued in Sabah and there is no other way to do this other than to give everybody a fresh card,” he said.

He would like to see in the future that for anybody to become a citizen in this country, their application must be made known to the public.

“It must first be like the banns of marriage; it must be advertised for objection before citizenship is granted. There must be a specific time (for objection) because a vast majority of people in this country do not even know that there have been cards issued and all of the sudden Malaysian citizens pop out from nowhere and claim their rights to the country,” Dompok said.

  3. UPKO, PBS and PBRS are the three main BN parties representing the KadazanDusunMurut community in Sabah.

    The proposal for every MyKad issued in Sabah so far to be returned to the relevant authorities and new MyKads be issued to Sabahans, will be put forward to the royal commission of inquiry (RCI) on the illegal immigrants in Sabah, said Dompok, who is also the plantation industry and commodities minister.

  6. Dompok cadang kaji semula setiap MyKad yang dikeluarkan selama ini

    KOTA KINABALU: Presiden Pertubuhan Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Bersatu (UPKO), Tan Sri Bernard Dompok mencadangkan supaya pihak berkuasa mengkaji semula setiap kad pengenalan (MyKad) yang telah dikeluarkan selama ini.

    Katanya, cadangan yang akan dikemukakan kepada Suruhanjaya Siasatan Diraja (RCI) dan kerajaan ini merupakan salah satu langkah untuk membuktikan bahawa hanya penduduk Sabah yang benar-benar tulen sahaja yang akan mendapat dokumen kenegaraan seperti kad pengenalan baru yang akan dikeluarkan.

    “Hal ini juga dapat membuktikan ketulenan susur galur kerakyatan kita (rakyat Sabah),” kata Dompok ketika berucap di Majlis Perhimpunan Gelombang TATABA UPKO-PBS-PBRS, di Dewan KDCA, di sini, hari ini.

    Tambahnya, penubuhan RCI semata-mata tidak akan menyelesaikan sepenuhnya masalah pendatang asing tanpa izin maka polisi-polisi berkaitan dan penyelesaian haruslah direncanakan.

    “Kita boleh tampil menghadap RCI atau secara kolektifnya, menyampaikan kepada Kabinet mengenai rekomendasi bersama ini,” katanya.

    Katanya, insiden pencerobohan bersenjata di Lahad Datu memberi pengajaran bahawa cabaran utama yang mungkin menghalang Negara untuk mencapai halatuju masa depan ialah keselamatan, lebih-lebih lagi apabila rakyat asing sudah berada di bumi Sabah ini.

    Oleh itu, satu penyelidikan menyeluruh dan komprehensif mengenai insiden pertambahan luar biasa penduduk asing dan bagaimana mereka (penduduk asing) boleh mendapat dokumen Negara perlu dikaji, katanya.

    “Saya pasti, pemimpin-pemimpin serta semua ahli UPKO, Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) dan Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah (PBRS) turut sama mahu melihat penyelesaian tuntas kepada masalah pendatang asing di Sabah yang telah membelenggu kehidupan kita sudah sekian lamanya ini,” katanya.

    Katanya, cadangan ini juga diharapkan akan mendapat persetujuan daripada semua parti-parti komponen Barisan Nasional di Sabah yang lain supaya sebuah kertas cadangan mengenai isu ini dapat dilaksanakan dan dikemukakan kepada RCI.
    Dalam pada itu, cadangan mengkaji semula MyKad ini turut mendapat reaksi yang positif daripada kedua-dua Presiden PBS dan PBRS.

    Menurut Presiden PBS, Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan cadangan ini dikemukakan memandangkan terdapat pelbagai hal yang tidak jelas berkaitan dengan statistik penduduk di negeri ini.

    “Hal ini kerana banyak pendatang di negeri ini tidak mempunyai dokumen atau yang ada dokumen tetapi dokumen palsu dan ada pula yang mempunyai dokumen sah tetapi tidak melalui proses-proses tertentu,” katanya.

    Jadi katanya, rakyat Sabah yang ‘tulen’ perlu dikenal pasti bagi memudahkan usaha Kerajaan dalam membantu rakyat Malaysia di Sabah seperti usaha membasmi kemiskinan yang perlu dofokuskan hanya kepada rakyat Malaysia.

    Dalam pada itu, Presiden PBRS, Tan Sri Joseph Kurup, berkata di dalam isu MyKad yang begitu rumit ini, tidak dinafikan bahawa terdapat sesetengah individu yang tidak layak atau mempunyai dokumen yang sah tetapi memiliki MyKad dan mereka ini turut menikmati segala kemudahan yang disediakan oleh kerajaan kepada rakyat Sabah.

  8. Saya suka juga dengan cadangan ini dan sekurang-kurangnya ada juga suara orang Sabah tentang isu IC di Sabah kan. Namun untuk melaksanakan sesuatu rasanya bukan ikut suka saja so pertimbangkan hal ini dan kalau patut then laksanakan saja.
