In making such a call, Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) Information Chief Chong
Pit Fah stressed that the said news report warrants an urgent attention and a
thorough investigation, as the said senior state UMNO leader was said to have
allegedly abused his position as a state legislator, in order to satisfy his
personal lust of keeping a Filipina mistress, who is believed to be an illegal
The said UMNO State Assemblyman known as ‘Datuk S’ (name identified) was
believed to have abused his position to secure a Malaysian citizenship for his
According to Sabahkini.net report, the said Filipina mistress known as Pia Binti
Dahlan is holding MyKad bearing serial number 670315-12-5012. She was also
alleged to hold Malaysian International Passport bearing serial number
H16691775. It was reported that Pia came to Sabah with valid Philippines
Passport and Visa but failed to renew it making her an illegal immigrant. She
stayed on until Datuk S came along and help her obtained the Malaysian
citizenship and later made her a mistress.
It further reported that ‘Datuk S’ was also believed to have spent quite a
fortune on her, showering her with lavish gifts like luxury home and vehicle,
"Helping an illegal immigrant to obtain MyKad through the backdoor is far more
serious than harbouring one, and is tantamount to an act of treason. His (Datuk
S) showering of lavish gifts on his Filipina mistress also raised question of
his excessive wealth.
"Hence, I strongly call on such relevant authorities like the National
Registration Department (NRD), Immigration Department, Malaysian Anti Corruption
Commission (MACC) and the Police to investigate the allegations made against
"Failing which, it would only send out wrong message to the public that there’s
double standard in the law enforcement of this country, one for the common
people on the street, and another one for those in the corridor of power," he
Nevertheless, Chong who is also SAPP Kepayan chief stressed that the latest
development has made it even more pertinent and necessary for the Federal
government to expedite the establishment of the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI),
to thoroughly probe into the perennial illegal immigrants and related issues
affecting Sabah, such as the issuance of Malaysian citizenship to foreigners
through dubious means like the infamous, widely publicized ‘Project IC/M’
He reminded that the people of Sabah at large, including politicians from both
sides of the divide have been pushing for the establishment of the said RCI, to
thoroughly probe into the issues, so as to effectively resolve the more than
three decades long of sufferings inflicted upon the people of Sabah.
He then cited that SAPP deputy president cum MP for Sepangar Datuk Eric Majimbun
had recently again highlighted another incident of foreign immigrant in
possession of Mykad.
The said incident involved an Indonesian teacher in Tongod who was found to have
in her possession three Malaysian identity cards bearing numbers 770111-12-5319,
H0888166 and H0556718, respectively.
According to Majimbun, upon checking, the Home Minister had confirmed that the
MyKad bearing the numbers 770111-12-5319 was not in existence while the other
two identity cards do not belong to the teacher concerned.
And what was more shocking was that the Indonesian teacher managed to secure and
utilize all the government funds and facilities provided for education, using
the MyKad which actually belonged to a deceased citizen.
On 28 February this year, Majimbun also highlighted that the Bantuan Rakyat
1Malaysia (BR1M) scheme too has been exploited by some ‘dubious citizens’ who
are in fact foreign nationals.
And the best part was, his own identity was stolen by an illegal immigrant back
in 2008. Despite the MP’s fervent efforts in highlighting the matter then,
including having raised it during the Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties
meeting (SAPP was still in the coalition at that time), besides lodging of
police report, nothing concrete has come out of it.
Chong thus reiterated that if nothing is done fast to tackle the perennial
issues, more and more Sabahans would end up becoming "refugees in their own
homeland", as what is happening now, at an alarming rate.
"Our very own native people who are also the Bumiputera are fast losing their
rights and privileges to these so-called "new citizens/Bumiputeras" who are in
actual fact foreign immigrants," he said.
