Kota Kinabalu: Sabah PKR Wanita Chief Rahimah Majid called for a proper inquiry and disciplinary action against Sabah PKR Youth Chief Raymond Ahuar following his abrupt sacking as Political Secretary to Deputy Chief Minister cum Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Christina Liew.

“In this matter, Ahuar should be given the right and proper venue to defend himself over whatever allegations there are that led to his removal from his political appointment. This should be conducted as soon as possible by the PKR Disciplinary Bureau. If he is indeed found guilty of some serious wrongdoings with evidence, then he should be charged accordingly if it’s a criminal offence and be sacked from the party (PKR) immediately.

“This is necessary in order to protect the party’s good name and integrity as a key component of the ruling Pakatan Harapan coalition. Failing which, it will send the wrong message to especially the public, members and supporters that PKR is condoning misdeeds of its leaders,” she said.

Rahimah, who is also PKR Central Leadership Council member cum Kudat Division Chief, was responding to news report on Ahuar’s unceremonious removal as the Political Secretary to Liew, who is also Sabah PKR Chairwoman, Tawau Member of Parliament and Api-Api State Assemblywoman. 

A legal practitioner herself, Rahimah also urged Ahuar, who is also PKR Pensiangan Division Chief and Sabah Pakatan Harapan Youth Chief, to courageously come forward to clear himself. 

She said this is necessary since Ahuar had, in his statement issued to the media, claimed that he was unclear of the actual reasons behind his sacking, which was recommended by the Chief Minister Datuk Mohd Shafie Apdal.

Besides this, Rahimah also called on the State Government to seriously and immediately look into Ahuar’s official complaint on alleged indiscriminate logging activities conducted by a company in Nabawan, which had allegedly devastated the surrounding environment.

She noted that Ahuar’s complaint, copies of which were sent to the relevant government agencies including the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), Sabah Forestry Department, Sabah Environmental Protection Department, Sabah Land and Survey Department, had since gone viral after someone shared it via social media like WhatsApp and Facebook.
