TENOM: The public is urged to refuse any requests from certain parties who ask for their signature without inquiry due to the report of Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia (SSKM) Group presence in the district in last January for their petition, claiming the support of United Nations (UN).
District Police Chief, Deputy Superintendent Mohamad Firdaus Abdulah, explained that the effort to collect signatures to be sent to UN is not true; instead the signatures are used for the interests of certain parties.
“The presence of SSKM group is also inviting discomfort and disrupting peace especially among business owners who are operating their daily business,” he told reporters after launching Tenom District Ops Selamat in Kilometer Jalan Tenom-Keningau for Chinese New Year season, here yesterday.
Mohd. Firdaus said, while there are no arrests made so far, the matter has been issued to Kepayan Police Headquarters in Kota Kinabalu and efforts to track down individuals involved with the group are in motion, based on their investigation on several individuals who have signed the petition and their pictures uploaded by the public.
The case is under investigation according to Sedition Act 1948 and Mohd. Firdaus calls for the public to report if such activities are re-occurring in their area to maintain security.
In other development, he added that the district which is located at the interior of Sabah recorded the lowers crime index and accidents for the last two years. – SayangSabah
