Warisan feels vindicated with PBS claims

KOTA KINABALU: Parti Warisan feels vindicated with the claims by Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) that a Barisan Nasional party had helped foreigners get Malaysian identity cards.

Warisan president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said PBS president Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili’s disclosure at his party’s just-concluded congress cleared persistent attacks by the current state government on Warisan, linking it to the issuance of such ICs.

“There was even a white paper on the issue by an independent group to state who was involved,” Shafie told reporters during a meet-the-people session in Bongowan, about 70km from here yesterday.

He said the response by Umno’s Usukan assemblyman Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak describing Ongkili as “ungrateful” on the issue clearly showed that Warisan was never involved in it.

Shafie was the chief minister when Warisan ruled the state with its Pakatan Harapan partners following the 14th General Election until it lost power to Gabungan Rakyat Sabah and Barisan in September 2020.
