KUCHING: Head of State Tun Muhammad Salahuddin is expected to grace the first presentation ceremony of Pingat Jasa Pahlawan Negara (PJPN) at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) this Feb 14.
The invitation was presented by Sarawak police commissioner DCP Datuk Wira Muhammad Sabtu Osman during a courtesy call on Salahuddin here yesterday.
The inaugural ceremony is expected to see 1,000 recipients from the state receiving the medal of honour for their bravery and heroism during the Confrontation, communist insurgency and less-well-known incidents like the Limbang Rebellion.
According to Deputy Home Minister Datuk Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar, the medal is similar to the Pingat Jasa Malaysia (PJM) given by the Armed Forces to those who had participated in the Emergency from 1948 to 1960 and 1969 to 1989 in the peninsula, or in Sarawak’s case from 1962 to 1990.
“It is not only for police personnel but for anybody who fought for the protection of the country during that time, including military personnel and civilians,” he was quoted as
having said at an event last year.
