RCI meaningless without punishment – Amanah Keningau
Posted on August 19, 2012, Sunday
KENINGAU: Angkatan Amanah Merdeka (Amanah) Keningau said the terms of reference for the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on illegal immigrants (PATI) in Sabah do not bear any meaning to the people.
Its chairman Paul Kadau in his statement yesterday said the establishment of the RCI is meaningless as it is too late to be implemented now.
“No immediate action was taken from the beginning. The government is supposed to identify who were responsible for the PTI (illegal immigrant) problems and take necessary action against these individuals.
“This issue involves corruption, cheating and the forging of documents, but in the RCI terms of reference, it failed to come up with any punishment for those responsible for this problem,” he said.
According to Kadau, it appears the KDM leaders in Barisan Nasional (BN) are turning a blind eye to this matter as it is very obvious that the RCI will not bring any solution for Sabah.
“My question for all our leaders in Sabah is, as leaders and presidents of your own movements, what is your stand on the issue of RCI?
He said the people need to know what the leaders believe in and wanting answers because the situation is critical.
