拿笃被外人入侵的问题 // Question on Lahad Datu Intrusion




The intrusion of the group of Sulu armed personnel into the FELDA oil palm plantation had created public interest, doubts, fear and many questions have yet to be answered. Until today we see the whole situation is unclear and the news were blocked and censored. This gave rise to a lot of speculation and guessing on what is actually happening in Lahad Datu.


The question that the MP Hiew wants to ask is why this big group so called foreign militants with heavy fire arms is not being apprehended immediately but allowed to stay back for talks and to spell out their demands? The various state and federal ministers come and go, and what have they achieved so far? It is more than two weeks now, and how long will the “standoff and the surround action” have to continue?


根据报道,超过百名的苏鲁持械份子入侵拿笃联邦土地发展局的油棕园,导致人们心中驚惶不安,怀疑,恐惧以及有许多待解的问题等着政府的交待和解释。 直到今天大家对整个情况都不清楚,由于该处的消息全被封锁。 这引起了许多猜测究竟拿笃发生了什么事,为何迄今都没有任何正面的报道。

邱国会议员想知道为何持有重型武器的外国武装份子没有立即被逮捕,反而需要举行谈判,并要听取他们的要求。 沙州和联邦部长已陆续前往该处,但是他们迄今有做到什么? 如今该事件已经发生有十多天了, 政府的‘对峙和包围行动”究竟还要持续多久?



亚庇国会议员邱庆洲在三天前前往拿笃进行实地视察,他抵达该事件发生的邻近地点,并发现该处很平静,而人民如常的继续他们的日常活动。 这与报章上所报道的紧急状态有很大的相反。 各种传言和未经确实的消息到处乱传,到底哪一个才是真的? 由国阵政府控制的官方新闻媒体并没有报道任何有关该事件的细节,只有‘模糊’的消息,并试图让人民看见政府有在做一些事情。 难道只是为了宣传,或是向公众展示他们正在做事。 事实上拿笃人和全沙巴人民都在指责国阵政府无法有效的处理该处状况。


新闻报道中也提到,该组人中有些人是持有马来西亚身份证,这意味着他们是‘国民’。 而根据马来西亚的法律,任何国民拥有非法武器将面对死刑的刑罚。但是为何他们却被允许留在拿笃,也没有采取行动取缔他们? 是否他们是凌驾于法律之上,还是政府害怕了他们? 为何这些武装份子可以‘随心所意’的进出沙州?他们甚至可以坐快艇堂皇进出我国海域,踏入我们的国土。 据拿笃人说,该些快艇可以运载一次30人蛇非法入境,如果这是正确的,那么就需要大约5艘快艇来运送这批武装份子进入沙巴。 我们的军队和警方为何没有发现到他们的入侵? 该处的人说,其实这些人已经在很久以前就已进入了沙巴州。 这就是沙巴会有数十万的非法移民的主因,有的甚至还获得马来西亚身份证。

无论是如何,大家都希望政府能尽快采取行动,以完结该问题,并且是越快越好,不要拖延。 我们是不能受到威胁,被迫接受不合理的要求,尤其是如报章上所报道的这些人要求土地。 这清楚的反映出政府无能和无效的处理该事件。 国阵谴责反对党对事件作出不正的评论,事实上国阵政府应该首先解除沙巴人的疑虑和担忧。

The KK MP Hiew King Cheu was on site in Lahad Datu and went near to the area where the incident had occurred. The place looked peaceful and quiet, and the people went on with their usual daily activities. This is just the reverse from the news as reported that looks hectic and as if an emergency state is occurring there. There were all types of rumors and unconfirmed news flying around, but how true is it? The official news media owned and/or controlled by the BN government had not reported any details but only carried the news on ‘so and so’ were there trying to do something. Is it for publicity or just to show to the public they are doing something? In fact it is true enough that the people in Lahad Datu and Sabah are blaming the government for their ineffective way on handling the situation.

The news report also mentioned that some people in the group are Mycard holders, and that means they are Malaysian. The Malaysian laws stated that anyone in possession of fire arm illegally will face death sentence. Thus, why they were allowed to stay on without action taken? Are they above the law or the government is frightened of them? Why can these militants “walk in” as they like, or even come into our soil openly in speed boats? According to the people in Lahad Datu, the usual passenger number on these speed boats smuggling people in are normally not more than 30, if the report is correct that around 150 militants had landed, that means there were at least 5 speed boats that had come in to do the drop off. How come our military forces and the police didn’t detect them? The people were saying that these people were in Sabah already sometime back. That is why there are hundred of thousands such people in Sabah and even holding Malaysian MyCards.

What ever it is we hope the government will act soon to eliminate the problem and to get it over soonest possible. We cannot simply be threatened and forced to accept unreasonable demands, especially on demanding land to be given to them as reported. This is reflecting on how ineffective and inefficient the government dealing and handling the incident. The BN is condemning the opposition making unjust statements towards the incident, and in fact the BN government should answer the doubts of the people first.


KK MP Hiew King Cheu.
