KOTA KINABALU: Special Branch (SB) personnel can attend Parti Warisan Sabah or government events but they should identify themselves first, says Datuk Junz Wong (pic).
The Warisan vice-president said SB officers should inform organisers that they were from the police force.
“There were instances of unknown individuals attending events or press conferences.
“For this reason, even if they are from the police force, it would be better for them to make themselves known instead of pretending to be members of the media,” he said. Wong, who is also state Agriculture and Food Industries Minister, said sometimes, seats allocated to pressmen were taken up by these SB personnel.
“The mediamen sometimes would not ask non-media personnel to vacate the seats as a matter of courtesy,” he said.
