KUCHING: The army plans to set up a new joint border patrol post in Sabah, said Third Brigade Commander Brig Jen Abdul Latif Jasid. 

So far Sabah has one such post, in Timbang Menggaris, Tawau, while Sarawak has two – in Lubuk Antu, Sri Aman and Biawak in Lundu. 

Brig Jen Abdul Latif said there were no plans to set up more joint border patrol posts with the Indonesian military in Sarawak as the situation at the common border with Kalimantan was under control. 

He was speaking to reporters at First Division headquarters here yesterday after feting 10 army men injured while on duty. 

On the call to build a fence along the Sarawak-Kalimantan border to prevent illegal immigrants from sneaking into the state, he said the matter was still being studied as it involved a number of other factors. – Bernama
