KOTA KINABALU: Moyog Assemblyman Terence Siambun has submitted a motion on Red Shirts leader Jamal Yunos to Sabah Assembly Secretary Bernard Dalinting.
The motion, according to Siambun’s statement in the Daily Express, calls for Jamal to be blacklisted by Sabah and barred from entering the state.
“The motion must be allowed by Speaker Syed Abas Syed Ali and debated. The Red Shirts are racist,” he was quoted as saying.
The motion, he added, was about safeguarding peace in Sabah. He said the people of Sabah were disgusted with the gangster-like behaviour of Jamal and his group.
He called on Chief Minister Musa Aman not to be influenced by the fact that Jamal Yunos was Umno Sungai Besar division chief.
“Musa must stand with the people,” said Siambun. “Public order in Sabah must not be jeopardised by the presence of any Red Shirt.”
Siambun, who recently defected from PKR to Parti Warisan Sabah (PWS), pointed out the Red Shirts began by intimidating Chinese who supported Bersih 2.0, the movement for clean, free and fair elections, among others.
“Jamal Yunos urged his supporters to take the law into their own hands,” the Sabah lawmaker who recently became PWS treasurer, was quoted as saying.
He argued that it was a clear-cut situation where the Red Shirts leader was a law-breaker.
Sabahans could not be treated by the authorities concerned like people in Malaya were being treated, said Siambun. “The Red Shirts are not about Sabah or the people of Malaysia,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
