SEMPORNA– The Marine Operations Force (MOF) foiled an attempt by 10 illegal immigrants to enter the country after detaining a boat in waters near Pulau Kulapuan, near here, Tuesday.

The Sabah Region 4 Marine Operations Force Commander, ACP Mohamad Madun said the skipper of the boat, a 60-year-old man living in Kampung Bangau-Bangau Semporna was also detained.

He said that the Semporna MOF personnel detained the boat at 2.30pm and upon inspection, 10 passengers in the boat were found to be without valid personal identification documents.

They comprised seven males aged between 14 to 53 years old and three females aged between 15 to 42, he said in a statement Wednesday.
