KOTA KINABALU: DAP Sabah has invited two prominent Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders – Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan and Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan – to attend and join in the discussion at the public forum on RCI tonight (Thursday).Organised by DAP Sabah, the forum entitled "Hope for Sabah or Cries for Sabah?" will be held at the Palace Hotel beginning 7.30pm with DAP Parliamentary Leader Lim Kit Siang, Kota Kinabalu MP Jimmy Wong, Sandakan MP Stephen Wong, former State Secretary Tan Sri Simon Sipaun, Star Sabah Chief Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan and APS Chief Datuk Seri Wilfred Bumburing among the speakers.

DAP Sabah Vice Chief Chan Foong Hin said there is no admission charge to the forum and that people are invited to attend and share the views on the topic.

"The findings of RCI report is a matter of public interest and it's beyond partisan politics. Both sides of the political divide should formulate the consensus to move forward from the RCI findings," he said here, Wednesday.

Pairin has been appointed as chairman for the RCI report working committee, while Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan has been a strong advocate for the BN Federal Government.

"For Pairin, it is a common knowledge for every Sabahan that the PBS government was overthrown in 1994 following the influx of illegal immigrants who ended up being registered as voters.

"Pairin has repeatedly called for the setting up of RCI to investigate the issue, but now the findings of the said RCI report only concluded that the illegal immigrant project probably existed, which is obviously contradicting the public's perception.

"It is of utmost importance for Pairin to draft his own Terms of Reference (TOR) for his RCI working committee. DAP Sabah invites him to attend the forum to share his views and formulate the TOR together," said Chan, who is also Sri Tanjung Assemblyman.

Chan said they invited Abdul Rahman to explain his statement that had insulted Sabahans when he said that they were the ones to be blamed for the influx of illegals.

He said Abdul Rahman would have the chance to communicate face to face with the public and assess their opinions on his statements.
