KOTA KINABALU: Kinabatangan MP Datuk Bung Moktar Radin and Kalabakan MP Datuk Ghapur Salleh are expected to meet Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Mangsor Ismail tomorrow over their remarks in Parliament that syabu was easily available in the state.
We are ready to give information. We have no agenda. Our only agenda is to stop people from falling prey to the drug menace, Bung Moktar said yesterday.
He said in Kinabatangan and Sandakan, many youths had become drug addicts because syabu was easily available.
We do not know how the drugs come in, he said, adding that they were not accusing the marine police of closing an eye to drug smuggling.
Bung Moktar said they were concerned that the widespread use of syabu would destroy future generations if preventive measures were not taken immediately.
On Tuesday, Mangsor had told a press conference that police would like to talk with Bung Moktar and Ghapur to obtain more information
to help in the fight against illicit drugs.
After yesterdays state Cabinet meeting, Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman told reporters that the fight against drugs should not be left to the police alone.
On the problem of lack of funds to upkeep half of the 60 Marine police vessels that required repair, Musa said that he would request more funds from the Federal Government.
