SAPP: Now you admit, so take action!
At last, the
Federal Minister finally admits that there are bogus agents going round
the State selling identification documents. This admission from the
Federal Home Minister is important as if it happens now, one should not
discount the possibility of such a matter has happened in the past.
"We in Sabah have known this fact for years. Others like MD Mutalib has
even written books with names and NRIC numbers to prove the existence of
fake identification documents obtained through dubious means. But what
actions have been taken by the authorities? To the layman, none.
"Datuk Hishamuddin Tun Hussein should instruct officers in his Ministry to
further investigate the claims by MD Mutalib. Even though the misdeed was
in the past, one should be of the opinion that a wrong deed is and will
always be a wrong deed.
"The adage that time heals should not apply as when the sovereignty of
the nation is at stake. Handing out identification documents through
dubious ways threatens the nationís security hence itís sovereignty.
"If a full investigation is carried out, then in order to be consistent in
stand and action, the home minister should also ď not hesitate to take
stern actions ď against these agents as well as those who obtained these
fake documents in the past.
