Project IC author, Mutalib, dies

The founder and chief editor of Sabahkini.com had just completed two more books on the Kpg Tanduo Sulu incursion and on Nurul Izzah Anwar.
KOTA KINABALU : Controversial political writer, Abdul Mutalib Mohd Daud, or more popularly known as Mutalib MD passed away this morning in Kuala Lumpur. His body was brought to Lahad Datu via Kota Kinabalu earlier this evening.
Mutalib, who is in his late 40s,  passed away around 3am of a suspected stroke.
According to a family member, Mutalib’s body was brought to his house in Sulaman Kingfisher near here. It was later moved to Masjid Bandaraya in Likas for special prayer before being brought to his hometown Lahad Datu for burial.
During his lifetime, Mutalib was a very brave writer having openly opposed the issuance of Malaysian documentations for many Filipino and Indonesian illegal immigrants in Sabah.
Though his family was originally from Kedah before settling down at Felda Sahabat in Lahad Datu, many in Sabah considered him to be a more patriotic Sabahan.
He has written a series of books on the illegal immigrants. Among others are the famous IC Palsu Merampas Hak Anak Sabah, IC Projek Agenda Tersembunyi Mahathir, and 007: Lelaki Malaysia Terakhir.
Though his books were highly controversial with exposing details, no one had ever challenged him in court.
Only two weeks ago Mutalib was a witness in a defamation suit brought by former chief minister Harris Salleh against a PKR Sabah leader, Dr Chong Eng Leong in the High Court here.
Mutalib was supposed to testify at the on-going hearing of the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) here on the alleged rampant issuance of Malaysian documentations to illegal immigrants in Sabah.
He was also the owner and chief editor of a thriving online news portals called Sabahkini.com.
Not new to threats
According to a friend, Mutalib was to join his ex-classmates of SMK Menggatal tomorrow (Sunday) near here for a reunion.
His friends revealed that Mutalib had just completed writing two books on the Tanduo standoff and on the recent banning of Nurul Izzah Anwar to enter Sabah.
They also claimed that Mutalib was assaulted by a man at a restaurant in Lahad Datu sometime during the recent general election.
He was no stranger to threats having been chased by thugs many times.
There was also an instance when his house in Lahad Datu was a target of molotov bombs.
