PETALING JAYA: The highly-anticipated report by the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on Sabah's illegal immigrants will be available for sale to the public on Thursday.

The report, available in English and Malay, is priced at RM100 per copy.

Members of the public can purchase the report from 9am to 4pm at the Sabah Chief Secretary's Office in Kota Kinabalu and the One Stop Centre in Putrajaya.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had announced during a visit to Sabah last month that the RCI report would be made public in early December.

Najib said a special panel headed by Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan would study the recommendations in the RCI report.

He said the Government had agreed to the setting up of the RCI due to the overwhelming consensus among Sabah Barisan Nasional components for the move.

The five-man panel of the RCI, headed by retired judge Tan Sri Steve Shim, submitted the report to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and Najib in January.

The RCI, which was set up in 2012, was tasked to investigate the influx of illegal immigrants in Sabah.

It covered eight terms of reference, including investigating the number of foreigners who were issued Malaysian identity cards.

They heard testimonies from 211 witnesses.
