PETALING JAYA: Red-shirt rally organiser Datuk Jamal Md Yunos (pic) has become the latest political personality to be barred from entering Sarawak.
In a message to his media WhatsApp group on Thursday noon, the Sungai Besar Umno chief said he was stopped by Immigration upon landing in Kuching at 11.30am.
He was served with a notice refusing him entry by Immigration officers, joining a list of Opposition leaders banned from the state ahead of the May 7 polls.
He claimed no specific reason was given for the ban.
Jamal said he had already booked a return flight and would hold a press conference upon landing in KLIA at 4pm.
On Wednesday, Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem said he would not be lifting the ban anytime soon, adding that it was necessary to protect the interests of Sarawak from "unsavoury elements".
