KOTA KINABALU: A senior National Registration Department (NRD) official showed a list of 60,000 illegal immigrants who received Malaysian identity cards illegally in the 1990s but no action was taken despite a police report being lodged, the Royal Commission of Inquiry on illegal immigrants heard.

Bingkor assemblyman Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan told the inquiry yesterday that the officer showed him the list in a room after he had gone to the department to apply for a replacement for his lost identity card.
