‘No ban on opposition leaders’

FMT Staff | June 4, 2013

Sabah state secretary Sukarti Wakiman said there was no unilateral ban on Nurul Izzah or “other opposition leaders’” entry into Sabah.

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah state government has dismissed widely speculated claims that the ban on PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar last Thursday was part of a crackdown by the Musa Aman-led regime post the 13th general election.

Sabah Barisan Nasional lost an unprecedented 12 seats to Pakatan Rakyat’s DAP and PKR in the May 5 GE. Another sole state seat – Bingkor – was won by local opposition Sabah State Reform Party through Jeffrey Kitingan.

In a statement last yesterday, Sabah state secretary Sukarti Wakiman clarified that there was no unilateral ban on Nurul Izzah’s entry into Sabah.

He said the barring her entry on May 30 was “only for one occasion”.

Sukarti said the state barred Nurul Izzah’s entry for “security reasons”.

“It was done for security reasons and based on reports. But there was no permanent ban on her,” he said.

Sukarti also disputed reports that other leaders – Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang, Bersih co-chairman S Ambiga and PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli – were banned from entering Sabah.

What’s going on Musa?

Azman Habu | June 3, 2013

Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman has come under fire for his baffling move to bar opposition leaders and former Bar Council president S Ambiga from Sabah.

TAWAU: Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman must clarify a leaked document from the Immigration Department that lists political and NGO leaders from the peninsula who are banned from entering the state.

According to the document dated May 21 from the Chief Minister’s Department to the Sabah Immigration Department, the leaders banned are Anwar Ibrahim, Lim Kit Siang, Nurul Izzah Anwar, Rafizi Ramli and S Ambiga.

Kota Kinabalu MP Jimmy Wong, who is also Sabah DAP chairman, said the decision to bar these people appears to have been made by the Sabah state cabinet during a meeting on May 15.

“The state cabinet appears to have agreed that the chief minister can use his absolute powers under the Immigration Act, with the advice from the state Special Branch chief to bar certain people,” he said in a statement.

Wong said the shock eviction of PKR vice-president and MP for Lembah Pantai Nurul was counter productive to the state.

Nurul’s travel ban in Sabah lifted, say Sabah cops
6:05PM Jun 3, 2013

The ban on PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar from entering Sabah has been lifted, according to Sabah police commissioner Hamza Taib.

According to Astro Awani, Hamza also said that aside from Nurul Izzah, no other politicians have been banned from entering the state.

However, no reason was provided for Nurul Izzah’s ban from entering Sabah in the first place.

NONE“As far as the police are concerned, we know that there are no other individuals banned except for Nurul. But her ban had been listed,” he was quoted as saying by Astro Awani.

Hamza (right) was further quoted as saying that there is no problem for any other leader to enter the state, so long as they abide by the law.

The lifting of the ban comes a day after Sabah state assembly deputy speaker Johny Mositun said that Nurul Izzah, who is also Lembah Pantai MP, had only been barred for a day.

In a statement today, Penampang MP Darell Leiking said Johny’s remarks that the ban was only for a day indicated that the latter was privy to the circumstances behind Nurul Izzah’s banning.

As such, Darell urged Johny to explain the real reasons behind the move.

“His (Johny) verification will be of great help for us to find out and to get to the bottom of the facts, as there are many speculations as to why Nurul Izzah was denied entry and deported from Sabah,” he added.

“The Cabinet has agreed that the Chief Minister invoke his absolute powers under the Immigration Act and, in accordance with certification from the Sabah Royal Malaysian Police Special Branch chief, not to land these individuals to Sabah,” the letter said, before it listed out the names of the five politicians and the Bersih 2.0 co-chairman.

According to Sabah DAP chief Jimmy Wong, a reliable source from the Immigration Department had leaked a copy of the first page of the document to him.

The document was sighted by The Malaysian Insider. From the single page, the duration of the blacklist or its reason was not stated.

Nurul says Anwar, Kit Siang likely on Sabah blacklist

Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar said she believes that PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim and DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang are on the Sabah immigration blacklist.

Nurul Izzah said this was alluded to by immigration officers who had stopped her from entering Sabah at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport last night.

“I suspect so. They (the immigration officers) were very mum when I asked a few questions, but I understand that they were following orders.

“From what little that I got, (I learnt that) Anwar is included, and Lim Kit Siang as well. They said (Lim) was let in on a one-time pass only,” she told reporters today.

Nurul Izzah denied entry into Sabah

K Pragalath | May 30, 2013

The deportation order comes from the Sabah CM’s office, she says.

PETALING JAYA: Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar is being deported from Sabah after the Immigration Department barred her from entering the state.

“Sabah immigration is arranging my deportation. I am not allowed to discuss with Darrell Leiking, who’s here waiting for me,” said Nurul who is also PKR vice president via Twitter.

Darrell Leikeng who is representing as Nurul Izzah’s lawyer is also PKR deputy secretary general and Penampang MP.

According to Nurul’s political secretary Fahmi Fadzil, she flew to Sabah on Leikeng’s invitation to celebrate Pesta Kaamatan in Penampang.

“I am being deported on the instructions of Sabah Chief Minister’s Office,” Nurul Izzah said via Twitter.

She also speculated that other Pakatan MPs would also be stopped from entering into Sabah.

Leikeng meanwhile tweeted that Nurul Izzah has been put back in an Air Asia flight back to KL.

“She was denied entry (into Sabah), right to counsel and the Kaamatan celebration,” he said.
