Detained 'Indian national' in Sabah says he's Malaysian

Thursday, August 27, 2009
Detained 'Indian national' in Sabah says he's
Malaysian
According to the facts of the case according to the lawyers, Majid arrived in Sabah from India in 1983 and worked as a restaurant helper in Papar along the west coast, an hour's drive south of Kota Kinabalu.

Ten years later, in 1993, he applied for a Malaysian identity card (IC) through the district NRD office under the IC Projek Pedalaman (Interior Division IC
Project).

It was not immediately clear what personal documents he used to apply for the Malaysian IC.

Question No. 1 - How many people like him got their citizenship this way?
Question No. 2 - Based on what criteria he acquired citizenship?
Question No. 3 - Projek Pedalaman (Interior Division IC Project) is meant for true locals born here without documents i.e. the indigenous bumiputras...Not meant for foreigners!

Another Parachuted Bumiputra direct from in India.................Sabahan we are doomed.

Nobody seem to be bother by this

But for Real Sabahan......

CITIZENSHIP PENDING SINCE 1963

POLITICIANS across both sides of the divide in Sabah want a Special Task Force for Sabah (STF), headed by a local, "to expedite the backlog of citizenship applications lodged since Malaysia Day in 1963 and ease other similar bottlenecks as well."

A Sabahan, it is suggested, "would be in a better position to understand the situation in the state." The call for the STF follows the belated discovery that the Sabah National Registration Department (NRD) acts more as "a remote post office" and is kept completely out of the picture by Putrajaya. There is some public suspicion that the status of the Sabah NRD has in fact been further downgraded since the appointment of a local head, for the first time, recently.

The Sabah NRD's lowly status was discovered in recent days when 50 elderly applicants for citizenship queried their current status through the Sabah Peoples Progressive Party (Sapp).

Another 137 applicants approached the Sabah MCA for help with their citizenship applications, permanent residence and MyKads, according to Edward Khoo, the state liaison chief. "The NRD here (in Kota Kinabalu) doesn't even know about these pending cases. They don't have records.

At least, they should be keeping track of the applications," fumed Sapp Wanita chief Melanie Chia (Luyang). "Many of these people are already in the 80s and are still holding their red IC (permanent residence)." Chia claims that citizenship, by virtue of the Malaysia Agreement, "is automatic via the merger of territories - for those who were in Sabah before Malaysia Day."

The implication drawn is that the applications have not been approved for some reason ignorance and a mindless bureaucracy is hinted at and is unlikely to be approved, given the passage of time, despite the Malaysia Agreement.

Her views were echoed by Sapp deputy presidents Liew Teck Chan (Likas) and Eric Majimbun (MP for Sepangar) who is among those who raised the idea of the STF and also a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the NRD and the extraordinary 301 percent rise in the number of 'Malaysians' in Sabah since 1970.

Majimbun disclosed that he had in fact raised the idea of the STF is "should also look into delays encountered by Sabahans, generally those living in the rural areas, in applying for MyKads." Parents' status a stumbling block He lamented the fact that "many natives in the rural areas were in fact in the category of stateless people", being either without birth certificates, the case with the elderly, or without MyKads in the case of the young even if they had birth certificates..

The stateless status of their parents remains the stumbling block. Majimbun noted the formation, not so long ago, of a 60-strong STF at the NRD in Putrajaya to deal with the backlog of applications. However, Sabahans are generally not impressed with what it has done for the state so far. Hence, the call for a STF just for Sabah.

The Putrajaya STF (PJ-STF), according to its KPI (Key Performance Index), has "cleared" 50 percent of the 32, 900 applications for citizenship received before 2008. It is not known how many of these applications have been approved. The PJ-STF has pledged to "clear the backlog by the end of this year."

It has been estimated in the past that 30,000 Sabahans alone are not Malaysians. Besides, the NRD receives 500 applications daily for citizenship and has a backlog of 16,000 appeals alone for entry permits, the first step on the road to permanent residence.

These applications, rejected by the Immigration Department without assigning any reason whatsoever, are from foreigners who have family in Malaysia. The numbers include foreigners married to Malaysians.. "Once the applications reach Putrajaya, virtually nothing is done," disclosed former Sabah chief minister Chong Kah Kiat, citing his personal experience during his term in office. "I had to personally see (former premier Dr) Mahathir (Mohamad) to get approval for 300 applications for Permanent Residence in Sabah from foreigners."

"These applications were from people, mostly professionals like doctors, who had been in the state for up to 30 years. The state government had approved their applications but they were held up at the federal level for no rhyme or reason by ignorant civil servants. It's a mindset problem in Putrajaya."

No identity documents Moyog (Upko) state assemblyperson Donald Mojuntin likewise cited his personal experience with applicants in Kibabaig in Penampang, Beluran and Kota Marudu. Mojuntin heads Upko's citizenship and security bureau. Upko stands for United Pasok Momogun KadazanDusunMurut Organisation. Pasok is the Dusun term for Natives and Momogun for non-Natives. The Kadazan are urban Dusuns.

"Among the problems is that many people have no form of identity documents including birth certificates," said Mojuntin who is also the assistant Finance Minister, a job he secured when Sapp pulled out from the BN on Sept 17 last year. "Then, there were teenagers and as well as adults – the stateless category - who only had birth certificates."

One fear among Sabahans and their political leaders alike is that the applications for citizenship dating back to 1963 may either be "missing in action" by now or "even thrown away after some time." In that case, the onus will be on the applicants to prove that they did indeed follow-up on their applications at regular intervals, according to a source in Sabah NRD.

"Even acknowledgment slips of applications received by the NRD are not good enough for them to press their case. If you merely file an application and just back and wait, you may be waiting forever. Nothing will happen in most cases." In many cases, the applicants apparently went to their graves with their citizenship applications still pending, or ironically, had them approved only after they had passed on.

It is pointed out that the officers handling the citizenship applications lodged in 1963 at the NRD would have long retired from service and perhaps even passed on. Still, "hope springs eternal in the human breast" in Sabah, judging by the spectacle of 80-year-olds approaching their legislators for assistance in securing their citizenship papers. Cynics can't help but wonder with wry humour why 80-year-olds, "with one foot already in the grave", still need their Malaysian citizenship papers "since this definitely won't be an issue where they are going."

Lawyers in the know suggest that "not clearing one's citizenship status could affect as well family members who follow since the policies keep changing arbitrarily." Children appear to take their citizenship status, according to tightened policies in recent years, from both their parents, at least in Sabah. Nevertheless, Chia like the others, remains undeterred. For them, "it's also an issue of principle", no matter how long it takes. She expressed surprise and extreme disappointment that the NRD hasn't been able to settle the pending cases, one way or other, despite the passage of nearly five decades .

A Forgetful Nation



A forgetful nation

The moot point to note is that Sabah and Sarawak did not join Malaysia. They entered into an agreement with Malaya to form Malaysia on 16 September 1963. So why are we celebrating 31 August as our national day?

By BOB TEOH/MySinchew

I USED to live in Australia for six years. Each year Australia Day was something memorable to celebrate even though I was not a citizen but only a permanent resident. It doesn’t matter really whether one is fair dinkum. Even tourists join in the fun and celebration. All are welcome.

Can we say this of our national day? To begin with we are never sure of what is our national day. Is it Merdeka Day on 31 August or Malaysia Day on 16 September? Where does our Malaysian story start? When we begin to forget our collective story, we begin to forget who we are.

Let’s get our story right.

The declaration of independence of the Federation of Malaya on 31 August 1957 was preceded by Qur’anic doxology:

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Universe and may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon His Messenger.

This clearly acknowledges that Islam is the official religion of the land but the country is a not an Islamic state by any stretch of imagination.

The newly independent nation is to be known as the Persekutuan Tanah Melayu or the Federation of Malaya comprising the Malay States of Johore, Pahang, Negri Sembilan, Selangor, Kedah, Perlis, Kelantan, Terengganu and Perak and the former Settlements of Malacca and Penang, both being previously dominions of the Imperial British Empire while the others were protectorates. The Malay characteristic has never been in doubt, hence Tanah Melayu.


The new nation is founded on a constitutional monarchy based on parliamentary democracy. The supremacy of the constitution is never in doubt. No other parallel system of law is envisaged.


On this understanding and undertaking Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Abdul Hamid Halimshah, as the first Prime Minister of Malaya, proclaimed independence upon the principles of liberty and justice.


Six years later three other political entities; Singapore, Sarawak and North Borneo or Sabah as it is now known entered into an agreement with Malaya to form an enlarged country of Malaysia on 16 September 1963. The Sultanate of Brunei had earlier declined to join the new federation. Singapore mutually separated two years later after an acrimonious short-lived partnership.

The moot point to note is that Sabah and Sarawak did not join Malaysia. They entered into an agreement with Malaya to form Malaysia on 16 September 1963. So why are we celebrating 31 August as our national day?

The basis for putting together the Malaysia Agreement is the so-called 20 points presented by Sabah and Sarawak. For Sabah, the first of the 20 points was on religion:

While there was no objection to Islam being the national religion of Malaysia there should be no State religion in North Borneo, and the provisions relating to Islam in the present Constitution of Malaya should not apply to North Borneo.

So how far have we come 46 or 52 years?

Have we forgotten our shared vision to live in peace based on the principles of justice and liberty, of a constitutional monarchy, and a parliamentary democracy?

I am afraid we are a forgetful nation. We have forgotten that the supreme law of the land does not allow us to cane a woman for drinking beer in public even if she deserves even 80 lashes under some subordinate laws.

I am afraid we forget too many things that are important and fundamental.



I am afraid we forget too easily it was in the name of compassion and mercy that we proclaimed ourselves to be a free and independent nation.

I am afraid there’s little reason to celebrate Merdeka this year. Even the government has downscaled the celebrations apparently because of the (A) H1N1 flu, among other thing.

Let us not forget to remember why there was a 31 August and a 16 September.
Yes, I can still remember Australia Day. But I wish I can also remember Merdeka and Malaysia Day.

20-point agreement (Sabah)

20-point agreement (Sabah)

The 20-point agreement, or the 20-point memorandum, is an agreement made between the state of Sabah (then North Borneo) with what would be the federal government of Malaysia prior to the formation of Malaysia in September 16, 1963.[1] A similar agreement was made between the state of Sarawak and the federal government but with certain differences in their 18-point agreement.

History

The agreement was written for the main purpose of safeguarding the interests, rights, and the autonomy of the people of Sabah upon the formation of the federation of Malaysia. It was originally envisaged that Sabah be one of the four entities in the federation, the others being Malaya, Singapore, and Sarawak. However as times passed, Sabah and Sarawak has ended up being merely one of the 13 states in the federation.

The position today

There has been numerous calls for the agreement to be reviewed to take into account social, economic, and political changes over time.[2]

The agreement

Point 1: Religion

While there was no objection to Islam being the national religion of Malaysia there should be no State religion in North Borneo, and the provisions relating to Islam in the present Constitution of Malaya should not apply to North Borneo

Point 2: Language

• a. Malay should be the national language of the Federation
• b. English should continue to be used for a period of 10 years after Malaysia Day
• c. English should be an official language of North Borneo for all purposes, State or Federal, without limitation of time.

Point 3: Constitution

Whilst accepting that the present Constitution of the Federation of Malaya should form the basis of the Constitution of Malaysia, the Constitution of Malaysia should be a completely new document drafted and agreed in the light of a free association of states and should not be a series of amendments to a Constitution drafted and agreed by different states in totally different circumstances. A new Constitution for North Borneo (Sabah) was of course essential.

Point 4: Head of Federation

The Head of State in North Borneo should not be eligible for election as Head of the Federation

Point 5: Name of Federation

“Malaysia” but not “Melayu Raya”

Point 6: Immigration

Control over immigration into any part of Malaysia from outside should rest with the Central Government but entry into North Borneo should also require the approval of the State Government. The Federal Government should not be able to veto the entry of persons into North Borneo for State Government purposes except on strictly security grounds. North Borneo should have unfettered control over the movements of persons other than those in Federal Government employ from other parts of Malaysia into North Borneo.

Point 7: Right of Secession

There should be no right to secede from the Federation

Point 8: Borneanisation

Borneanisation of the public service should proceed as quickly as possible.
Point 9: British Officers
Every effort should be made to encourage British Officers to remain in the public service until their places can be taken by suitably qualified people from North Borneo


Point 10: Citizenship

The recommendation in paragraph 148(k) of the Report of the Cobbold Commission should govern the citizenship rights in the Federation of North Borneo subject to the following amendments:
• a) sub-paragraph (i) should not contain the proviso as to five years residence
• b) in order to tie up with our law, sub-paragraph (ii)(a) should read “7 out of 10 years” instead of “8 out of 10 years”
• c) sub-paragraph (iii) should not contain any restriction tied to the citizenship of parents – a person born in North Borneo after Malaysia must be federal citizen.

Point 11: Tariffs and Finance

North Borneo should retain control of its own finance, development and tariff, and should have the right to work up its own taxation and to raise loans on its own cr.

Point 12: Special position of indigenous races

In principle, the indigenous races of North Borneo should enjoy special rights analogous to those enjoyed by Malays in Malaya, but the present Malays’ formula in this regard is not necessarily applicable in North Borneo

Point 13: State Government

• a) the Prime Minister should be elected by unofficial members of Legislative Council
• b) There should be a proper Ministerial system in North Borneo

Point 14: Transitional period

This should be seven years and during such period legislative power must be left with the State of North Borneo by the Constitution and not be merely delegated to the State Government by the Federal Government

Point 15: Education

The existing educational system of North Borneo should be maintained and for this reason it should be under state control

Point 16: Constitutional safeguards

No amendment modification or withdrawal of any special safeguard granted to North Borneo should be made by the Central Government without the positive concurrence of the Government of the State of North Borneo
The power of amending the Constitution of the State of North Borneo should belong exclusively to the people in the state. (Note: The United Party, The Democratic Party and the Pasok Momogun Party considered that a three-fourth majority would be required in order to effect any amendment to the Federal and State Constitutions whereas the UNKO and USNO considered a two-thirds majority would be sufficient)

Point 17: Representation in Federal Parliament

This should take account not only of the population of North Borneo but also of its seize and potentialities and in any case should not be less than that of Singapore

Point 18: Name of Head of State

Yang di-Pertua Negara

Point 19: Name of State

Sabah

Point 20: Land, Forests, Local Government, etc.

The provisions in the Constitution of the Federation in respect of the powers of the National Land Council should not apply in North Borneo. Likewise, the National Council for Local Government should not apply in North Borneo.

Operation Talkak - 1991 Sabah political arrests

Political arrests was carried out between 1990 and 1991 to crack down on opposition leaders in Sabah, Malaysia, and their alleged plans to secede the state from Malaysia, allegedly known as Operation Talkak. Seven men were detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA). All seven men were leaders or prominent members the Kadazan Cultural Association (KCA), Institute for Development Studies (IDS), Sabah Foundation, and opposition party Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS), and were placed under two-year detention orders.
Events leading up to Operation Talkak

February 1990

Jeffrey Kitingan, 42, director of IDS, younger brother of Chief Minister of Sabah Pairin Kitingan, is charged in a high court with seven counts of corruption. The corruption charges are in regards to the export of timber. Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad denies that the Kitingan case is politically motivated.

July 1990

PBS calls for a 50-50 redistribution of revenue from Sabah's resources, particularly from crude oil. At the time, the distribution is 95-5, with 95% going to the federal government and 5% to Sabah. Sabah produces a fifth of Malaysia's total crude oil output.

October 1990

Four days before the general elections, PBS withdraws from Barisan Nasional (BN), and joins opposition party Semangat 46. According to Bernard Dompok, the relationship between PBS and BN had always been an uneasy one, since PBS came to power during the Sabah state elections in 1985.

Chronology of Events

May 1990


Damit Undikai, 54, PBS member and former Special Branch officer, is arrested by Special Branch police forces on May 18, for allegedly heading plans to secede Sabah from the Malaysian federation.

Albinus Yudah, 41, chief of security at Borneo Rest House, member of PBS and KCA, and former police constable, is arrested on May 25.

Benedict Topin, 37, PBS member, Executive Secretary of KCA, is arrested on May 25. The Malaysian police claims to have been monitoring him since 1987.

July 1990

Abdul Rahman Ahmad, 51, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Sabah, is arrested on July 7.

January 1991

Maximus Ongkili, senior researcher and deputy chief director of IDS, nephew of Jeffrey Kitingan and Chief Minister of Sabah Pairin Kitingan, electoral press consultant to Pairin Kitingan during the 1990 Sabah state and national elections, is arrested on January 3.

Vincent Chung, manager of administration and personnel, Sabah Foundation, is arrested on January 19.

Pairin Kitingan, Chief Minister of Sabah, Huguan Siou (Supreme Chief) of the KCA, president of PBS, is pressed with corruption charges. Almost a year earlier, his brother Jeffrey Kitingan was pressed with similar charges.

March 1991

Maximus Ongkili is released unconditionally on March 2.

May 1991

Jeffrey Kitingan is arrested on May 13.
