KOTA KINABALU: The State Immigration Department has been asked to shed light on two documents being held by foreigners in the state at the next State Cabinet meeting.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Wilfred Madius Tangau (pic) said these are the “Kad Burung-Burung” and census certificate.

These and the IMM13 issued to Filipino refugees are due to be replaced by the Temporary Pass next June.

 “We wish to hear their explanation on the status as well as validity of these documents, the ‘kad burung-burung’ and census certificate, which were issued by the previous government.

“These are also the questions the people would like to find out the answers to,” Tangau said.

Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin had said there are some 600,000 people holding these documents, out of about 1.1 million foreigners residing in Sabah.

Muhyiddin said Immigration personnel were having difficulties in enforcing the law because of the various documents.

Tangau only after listening to the explanation on the kad burung-burung and census certificates would the Cabinet decide the plan to issue the PSS.

As the pass would only be issued in the middle of next year, he said, there was still time to refine matters pertaining to the new special pass for documented foreigners in Sabah.
