KOTA KINABALU: The late Henry Chin was a stickler for demonstrating commitment, dedication and discipline during his lifetime, especially in public service, noted Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman.
He said even after retiring as Kuala Lumpur police chief, Chin was active in many social and educational causes, including sitting on the boards of Universiti Malaysia Sabah and the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation.
Chin also played a key role as commissioner of the Royal Commission of Inquiry on illegal immigrants in the state, added Musa.
“On behalf of my family, I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the (Chin’s) family over their loss.
“We have lost a man who was generous with his time and efforts, a man who was a friend to many,” he said after paying his last respects to Chin at a funeral home here today.
Chin, 79, died at the University Malaya Medical Centre due to a stroke last Sunday.
He is survived by widow, Shirley Cheng Hua Chien, 72, a son and a daughter.
