Kalabakan Member of Parliament wants NRD clarify it alleges attempted to register illegal immigrants for Mykad.

The National Registration Department (NRD) has been urged to clarify an allegation over an attempt to register illegal immigrants for MyKads in Kalabakan.

Member of Parliament for Kalabakan Datuk Abdul Ghapur Salleh said he had also received a complaint that the attempt took place in Kampung Kalabakan Tengah last month.

He said the allegation had worried the local community and hoped the authority would clarify the matter.

“A village head, who was said to be involved in the incident, should be called up for questioning,” he said in a statement here.

He was commenting on an allegation made by Sabah Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) deputy chief Datuk Kong Hong Ming that about 200 illegal immigrants, mostly Bugis, were ferried by buses and taxis, to the village for the three-day registration exercise.
