PBS reiterates call for RCI on Sabah illegal immigrants

Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) today reiterated its call for the setting up a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) on illegal immigrants in the state.

NONEIts deputy president Maximus Ongkili said this was among issues that needed to be solved by the BN government, stressing that the matter had become an issue of great concern among Sabahans.

"As such, it is important to tackle this issue with urgency by forming an RCI as the issue could turn into a crisis and could cause the BN to lose the people’s support,” Ongkili said at a PBS leadership seminar in Labuan today.

“The call for the RCI has been reiterated by PBS leaders over the years and we will continue to pursue this,” he said.

PM Najib Razak has said last month that an RCI to probe the matter was still under consideration.

Ongkili said native customary rights land issue was another issue of concern among the people.

"Land is an important asset for the natives; our role must be to protect the people’s rights. We must be seen to be doing this,” he added.
