Sijil Anak Negeri 沙巴土著证书

The yang Di-Petua Negeri Sabah has established a “Board of Officers” under section 3(3) of the Ordinance Tafsiran (Tarif Anak Negeri) 1952 Cap 64 to check if the Native certificate or “Sijil Anak Negeri” belonging to YB Jimmy Wong is genuine. This was revealed in a letter to YB Jimmy Wong of 24 March 2010 from Datuk Abidin Madingkir, the Chairman of the Board of Officers of the Ministry of Local Government and Housing.由沙巴州元首根据1952年条例‘Ordinance Tafsiran’ (Tarif Anak Negeri)第六十四章第三条三项条文,设立的‘委员会’以检查沙州议员黄仕平的土著证书的真伪。   黄仕平是在2010年3月24 日收到地方政府和房屋部的拿督阿比丁的函件的指示。

州议员黄仕平乐意给予全面的合作,他已前往亚庇区土著事务法庭主管威廉马晋文(OKK William Mojimbun)的办事处要求认证其土著证书,该证书是当年由他的办事处所颁发给黄氏的。 主管威廉马晋文也表示说经过核证后,该证书是属真本,其后他 也签证了一份副本。 威廉马晋文通知黄仕平说,他已提交了该证书给他的上级做最后的决定。 只要支付少许的费用,所有的土著证书都可以由区土著事务法庭核证盖章确认。 然而由于这是件受高度关注的事项及其影响度超高,也将会影响到本州许多拥有同 样证书的人士,威廉马晋文决定将其提呈给他的上级做出决定。

YB Jimmy Wong has been cooperating with the relevant authority by presenting himself to the District Native Court Chief of Kota Kinabalu OKK William Mojimbun together with the certificate issued from his office.  OKK Mojimbun has indicated that the certificate appeared genuine and subsequently certified on a copy of the said certificate. OKK Mojimbun has informed YB Jimmy Wong that he has submitted the certified certificate to his “boss” for a decision. All native certificates can be verified by the Native District Chief for a small fee. However, due to the high profile of this case, OKK Mojimbun has decided to forward it to his superior for a decision.

If the office of the Native District Chief can verify a Native certificate for a fee, why is it that a “Board of Officers” is required for the case of YB Jimmy Wong? Thousands of Native certificates have been issued and there are some that are and have been reported to the Police as fake or acquired by dubious means. Why is YB Jimmy Wong been singled out? Is it because he is a DAP YB who has been revealing so many wrong doings of the UMNO-BN government in the Assembly?

To be fair and to prevent any perception of dishonesty on the part of the “Board of Officers”, YB Jimmy Wong should be called to a meeting where he can (with his lawyer) present the certificate to the Board for examination. It is very unfair to ask YB Jimmy Wong to submit his certificate to the Board for examination because “anything” can happen to the certificate. A high profile case like this has to be dealt with accordingly.

沙巴土著证书

由沙巴州元首根据1952年条例‘Ordinance Tafsiran’ (Tarif Anak Negeri)第六十四章第三条三项条文,设立的‘委员会’以检查沙州议员黄仕平的土著证书的真伪。   黄仕平是在2010年3月24 日收到地方政府和房屋部的拿督阿比丁的函件的指示。

州议员黄仕平乐意给予全面的合作,他已前往亚庇区土著事务法庭主管威廉马晋文(OKK William Mojimbun)的办事处要求认证其土著证书,该证书是当年由他的办事处所颁发给黄氏的。 主管威廉马晋文也表示说经过核证后,该证书是属真本,其后他 也签证了一份副本。 威廉马晋文通知黄仕平说,他已提交了该证书给他的上级做最后的决定。 只要支付少许的费用,所有的土著证书都可以由区土著事务法庭核证盖章确认。 然而由于这是件受高度关注的事项及其影响度超高,也将会影响到本州许多拥有同 样证书的人士,威廉马晋文决定将其提呈给他的上级做出决定。

如果可以付一些费用就能够得到土著事务法庭验证土著证书,为什么要为了黄仕平的事件,特别设立‘委员会’呢?  已经有上万的土著证书被发出去,但是有一些被认为是伪造的土著证书或用手段获得的证书,都已向警方报案。 为什么黄仕平却被特意的挑剔进行验证? 是否因为他是一位民主行动党议员,在州议会里不断的揭开国阵政府许多不对的地方?

为了达到公平和防止该‘特别委员会’有任何偏向一边的看法,州议员黄仕平应面对该委员会,他可以与他的律师提呈他的土著证书给‘委员会’验 证真伪。  他们要求黄氏只提交其证书给委员会是非常不公平,因为黄氏所持有的土著证书可能会被做手脚。 这样高度受关注的事件,必须要有适当和公平的处理。
