mistake, and Sabah authorities
must explain.
KOTA KINABALU: Sabah PKR secretary Dr Roland Chia Ming Shen has questioned the rationale behind the Immigration Department’s decision to bar PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar from entering Sabah yesterday.

“The state Immigration Department certainly owes the people of Malaysia and Sabah in particular, an explanation on this. Failing which, they should immediately apologise to her,” he said.
Nurul was barred from entering Sabah at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) on Thursday evening and deported to Kuala Lumpur soon after.
Chia, who is also Inanam assemblyman, contended that he did not see any good reason to bar the Lembah Pantai MP from entering Sabah, as she was visiting on the invitation of Penampang MP Darell Leiking, in conjunction with the Harvest Festival.

What’s going on Musa?

Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman has come under fire for his
baffling move to bar opposition leaders and former Bar
Council president S Ambiga from Sabah.

According to the document dated May 21 from the Chief Minister’s Department to the Sabah Immigration Department, the leaders banned are Anwar Ibrahim, Lim Kit Siang, Nurul Izzah Anwar, Rafizi Ramli and S Ambiga.

Kota Kinabalu MP Jimmy Wong, who is also Sabah DAP chairman, said the decision to bar these people appears to have been made by the Sabah state cabinet during a meeting on May 15.


KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) has defended the state Immigration Department’s decision not to allow PKR vice president Nurul Izzah Anwar to enter Sabah last week.

Its Information Chief, Datuk Johnny Mositun, said that the party supported the decision because it had to do with the security of the state being threatened.
“We support the decision as we believe the Immigration Department has justification not to allow her to enter Sabah,” he said when asked to comment on the incident that occurred on the eve of Kaamatan.

Mositun also said that this was not the first time that an individual had been barred from entering Sabah and some of the individuals had in fact been allowed in the state after the threat that they posed was deemed to be over.
