PBS Youth lodges report over claims Umno behind illegal issuance of ICs to foreigners

KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Youth has lodged a police report over two videos that contain an allegation that Umno is behind the state in giving out identification cards to foreigners.

Its chief Christoper Mandut lodged a police report following the emergence of the videos with a claim that a political party was behind the illegal issuance of Malaysian identity cards back in 1981.

The first video, which is two-minute and 32-seconds long, features an interview with a man claiming that he was asked to sign an empty HRN3 form to get his citizenship.

He claimed that Umno had led, supported and encouraged the scheme, calling the party a traitor.

In the second video, a woman named Siti Aminah claimed that she gathered people and got their photos and thumbprints before sending the items to the Umno office.

The two-minute and 16-second video also saw Siti claiming that the process would automatically provide these individuals with identification cards and Umno membership.

It is unclear when these videos were taken but it is believed that they were old videos being circulated again for political purposes.

Christopher said as local Sabahans, they believe that the allegations made by the two individuals should be looked into seriously.

"Apart from the videos, we also submitted the transcripts to assist the police in their investigations," he said after lodging the report at the Kota Kinabalu police station on Thursday (July 7).
