KUCHING, 27 Mac (Bernama) -- DAP Sarawak hari ini mengumumkan keluar daripada pakatan pembangkang Pakatan Rakyat (PR) di negeri ini berkuat kuasa serta merta.
Kota Kinabalu: “The National Registration Department (NRD) has no business deciding that the re-introduction of a Sabah IC would not be implemented. That right belongs to the Sabah government and with the numerous calls for the Sabah IC to be implemented and now receiving support from some of the Sabah BN components” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief responding on the report that the NRD was not in favour of issuing a Sabah IC but recalling and re-issuing ICs issued for Sabahans.
TUARAN: Four Borneo rights activists have been charged in the Sessions Court following their distribution of leaflets generated by the Sabah Sarawak Union (UK), headed by Doris Jones, 46, who also runs the Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia (SSKM) Facebook Page.
Kota Kinabalu: “Sabah may now be the poorest State in Malaysia but they can be turned into the richest State as simply as following and complying with the highest law of Malaysia, the Federal Constitution” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief in reference to the calls for Sabah to be returned two-fifths or 40% of the net revenue collected from Sabah by the federal government.
Kota Kinabalu: “Whichever angle or perspective you look at, 1976 was “annus horribilis” or horrible year for Sabah. It was just not a horrible year for Sabah in 1976 alone but it continued until the present day and Sabahans are still suffering from its effects” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, commenting on on-going spat between the 2 Tan Sris, Pairin and Harris Salleh, on the loss of Sabah rights.
Kota Kinabalu: “The people of Sabah are up in arms against Minister Nancy Shukri and the federal government for insulting the natives and for treating with contempt the Batu Sumpah Oath Stone as a mere symbol in the formation of Malaysia. The statement only goes to show the utter contempt of the federal government and Malay leaders for the basis of the formation of Malaysia” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief cum Bingkor State Assemblyman on reports of Minister Nancy Shukri’s statement on behalf of the federal government that the Batu Sumpah is merely symbolic and devoid of meaning and importance.
“We would like to have the statue in the house during Lent,” said Michael George, whose home in Kampung Mahandoi, Penampang, has caught public attention following news that the statue has been shedding tears the past one week.
Kota Kinabalu: “One of the top investigative priorities of Tan Sri Pairin’s Technical Committee on Migrant Management should be the scrutiny and verification of the Sabah Umno membership list for holders of dubious ICs that were unlawfully obtained and illegal voters entered into the electoral rolls” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, wondering how Sabah Umno has 536,232 members, the State with the most Umno members.
Kota Kinabalu: “Sabah Umno BN leaders should wake up and do their homework and highlight the pathetic state of development in Sabah and stop fooling themselves and Sabahans and then decide whether they should demand repeat demand for full or partial autonomy with regards to federal development funds for Sabah” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, noting the similar pathetic calls for partial autonomy on federal development funds instead of demanding for full autonomy.
Kota Kinabalu: “The Sabah State Assembly Speaker’s statement that the federal government should grant partial autonomy to Sabah and Sarawak consistent with the spirit and basis of the Malaysia Agreement (“MA63”) and the 20/18-Points is welcomed and long overdue from an Umno leader. However, the autonomy cannot be compromised and need to be sincerely implemented and not just an empty and hollow rhetoric or political gimmick” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, Chairman of STAR Sabah responding to the Speaker’s request that the Barisan Nasional federal government grant partial autonomy to Sabah and Sarawak to partly fulfil the people’s request and reduce their anger.
Kota Kinabalu: “The Sabah government need to act unflinchingly and uncompromisingly on the on-going social passes given to Pakistanis and to recall and revoke the visit passes of all Pakistanis in Sabah with immediate effect” asked Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief commenting on reports of 5 Pakistanis being jailed after admitting to their offices following the 9 Pakistanis that were arrested with fake social passes in Semporna.
Kota Kinabalu: “It is comical seeing Sabah Umno leaders falling over each other trying to justify Umno’s presence in Sabah without any concrete basis or replies to the reasons why Umno is being rejected when not a single Umno Malaya leader has done do. If this is not to please their Umno leaders in Putrajaya, what else is?” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, Chairman of STAR Sabah responding to responses by Sabah Umno leaders on his earlier statement that Umno is not wanted by many in Sabah too.
