Decades old issue yet no idea how to deal with it
Kota Kinabalu, July 29, 2010:
Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) Secretary-General Datuk Richard Yong We
Kong said it is regrettable that Party Bersatu Sabah's Information Chief,
Datuk Johnny Mositun harping on a 30-year old issue concerning illegal
immigrants but still having no idea what to do with it.
"It is however, amusing that Datuk
Johnny is now asking SAPP to contribute lasting solution to this problem
as if the government's Special Laboratory is not doing enough.
"I wish to remind Datuk Johnny that each time SAPP made statement we always
included our points of view and suggestions. As on the case of illegal
immigrants SAPP had submitted whole lists of suggestions to the Prime
Minister and also to the Chief Minister of Sabah way back in 2006.
like all the proposals and suggestions had fallen into deaf ear. That was
the reason why we said what is lacking is actually the sincerity and
political-will on the part of the BN Government to tackle this issue.
"Datuk Johnny said PBS had never wavered from its position on the issue and
insisted that illegals must be detained and deported. Detain and deport
has been continually carried out and yet the problem had persisted.
"If Datuk Johnny still believes that by just harping will help solve the
problems then I am sorry to say that he sounds very much self-deceptive.
The general public will not believe in this rhetoric any more.
"If the government after facing a 30 years issue and still do not have clue
on how to resolve it then the government should be held responsible for
