New party PAKAR supports Ghapur and Jeffrey against Seditious Act

By Ezra Haganez
KOTA KINABALU : Newly-registered Parti Kerjasama Rakyat (PAKAR) is in full support of the calls made by both Kalabakan MP, Abdul Ghapur Salleh, and STAR state chairman, Dr Jeffrey Kitingan, who seeked for the Federal to punish the perpetrators in the perennial illegal immigrants problems in Sabah.

The multi-racial party claimed this should be the Federal's focus rather than busily threatening those who called for Sabah and Sarawak rights to be restored.

PAKAR deputy president, Paulus Ghani, in a statement here said both Sabah leaders made the correct calls to the Federal leaders who had committed as many misdeeds to Sabahans and Sarawakians since the inception of Malaysia in 1963.

"Prime Minister Najib Razak himself reneged on so many pledges including on repealing Sedition Act, only to bow to pressures from one dark corner in his own party, and this time to threaten Sabahans and Sarawakians of detention if they speak up for their people and state rights," said Ghani.

According to Ghani, what the Federal leaders should have done is to listen to the grouses from the two lagging states and to engage with groups that speak up for the states.

"These grouses were not invalid. 

"They are here now because the majority in East Malaysia feel that the two states have been neglected and willfully sidelined. The worse case in Sabah, the Federal not only failed to stem the influx of illegal immigrants but in fact had encouraged it to happen as proven in the fresh RCI Report which was released here today," said Ghani.

He further claimed that no one in his or her right frame of mind would suggest for separation from Malaysia if sufficient protection and respect for rights have been accorded to Sabah and Sarawak as equal partners in the Federation.

"All leaders and the people at large must really ponder and think why these calls for separation have gained momentum in Sabah and Sarawak now especially among the young educated generations.

"Think why Singapore left or kicked out of the Federation in 1965, and why Brunei opted out in the last minute from signing Malaysia Agreement in July 1963 in London even though then Brunei Sultan was said to be already in London too..." Ghani added.
