Six more months for RCI on Sabah's immigrant problem

The Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) tasked to investigate Sabah's immigrant problem has been given a six-month extension to come up with its findings.

RCI secretary Datuk Saripuddin Kasim said the Yang diPertuan Agong had consented to extend the term of the Commission from March 21 to Sept 20.

The extension would enable the completion of investigations and compiling the report, he said yesterday.

On June 1 last year, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced the setting up of the RCI to investigate the long-standing problems related to illegal immigrants in Sabah.

He added that the Government was committed to resolving the issue which could affect the well-being of the people in the state.

Najib had insisted on the setting up of the RCI and had on Sept 21 handed over the appointment letters to the RCI chairman, former Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Tan Sri Steve Shim Lip Kiong and other commission members.
