KOTA KINABALU: Former chief minister Datuk Salleh Said Keruak has called on the Federal Government appoint a Sabahan to head the National Registration Department in the state, and revamp the department.
He said this was necessary to quash the public’s negative perceptions of the department with regard to citizenship status.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said the suggestion by Salleh and others would be studied.
A furore has erupted in Sabah over the case of Yong Lee Hua who was issued a red identity card (permanent resident status) in replacement of her blue IC that was stolen in a supermarket in Penampang last year.
Yong, of Sino-Kadazan parentage, is regarded as a native.
Salleh said that downgrading the status of a native to that of a permanent resident was unacceptable. – NST Online
When United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Organisation (UPKO) yesterday threatened to review its position in BN, it came as a shock and was seemingly reminiscent to SAPP’s political move. – Bernama.com

Penampang: Little did a 78-year-old Sino-Kadazan holding a Bumiputra Native Certificate realise the nightmare that would unfold for losing her Identity Card last year.
Within months, Yong Lee Hua @ Piang Lin has seen her status as full-fledged Malaysian being reduced to that of a Permanent Resident by the National Registration Department (NRD), and with the latter showing no remorse or urgency in reverting to her original status.
