KUALA LUMPUR – The Home Ministry (KDN) is urged to take serious and transparent approach in handling the selling of Mykad to foreigners as the issue has shocked the nation.
It is unacceptable as our people are willing to ‘sell the country’ for money.
The Penang MIC Chairman, Datuk M Nyanasegaran expressed his woes to MalaysiaGazette on the ‘1000 miliki MyKad sah’ (1,000 Foreigners hold legal MyKad) news article published several days ago.
“This has nothing to do with politics. This is about security and the pride of a country. How can our identity cards go easily to the foreigners and now, many of them own MyKad?
“Please investigate if this report is authentic. Is the number only an allegation or it is actually more than that? Please come forward and give us an explanation.
“I think that the allegations on the article by Harian Metro on 14 September is very heavy and it clearly shows that there is a movement or syndicate involving various important parties behind this such as KDN, the National Registration Department (NRD) and also the Immigration Department.
“KDN needs to investigate all these, use all their relevant special agents so that we can identify not only the mastermind but also the ways to resolve this issue. This is not an issue we can take lightly on,” he said.
According to Nyanasegaran, he is also surprised by the report as it mentioned that the numbers were recorded from January to May 2019.
“I am not pointing fingers to anyone and this is not politics. There were also allegations like this when the current government was the then opposition.
“However, the figures reported was not as alleged by certain people before they win the election.
“I hope that stern actions can be taken fast and please do not be rhetoric by pointing fingers to the previous government as the power lies in your hands now.
“Please identify those foreigners, revoke their MyKad and send them back to their countries. That should be the way.
“KDN needs to be transparent, responsible and report to the people so that we do not need to carry on worrying.
“Let the stern actions be a lesson to everyone so that nobody will repeat the same offence,” he said. -MalaysiaGazette
