Stateless Sarawakians - Gov't Can't Help
According to State Social Development and Urbanisation Minister Datuk William Mawan, there were "tens of thousands" of Sarawakian natives who were without ICs or personal identification documents.
The federal government has promised to help resolve the long outstanding problem of many "stateless" Sarawakian natives. During a dialogue session with the BN's elected representatives and leaders at Kuching Hilton on Thursday, 12-Feb-2009, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, said he would bring up the matter at the cabinet meeting to get the relevant ministry to act.
He said the ministry concerned would have to find out if elected representatives and community leaders could help to certify the status of stateless Sarawakians in their applications for MyKad.
Mawan said the SPDP would compile details of the problem and bring them up at the Barisan management committee meeting.
This is so amazing!!! Taib Mahmud and his cronies are too busy enriching themselves that they need Najib to resolve issues that have been in their backyard for almost half a century. And Mawan is only about to compile the details of the problem. Why only NOW?
