Lundayeh in Sabah and Penan in Sarawak at risk: Citizenship amendments
Tabias and Mary Anne
Kota Kinabalu: Most single adult Malaysians take for granted that they can marry and not have to worry whether their children will be Malaysian citizens.

Not so with red MyPR Malaysian identity card holders like 52-year-old Tabias Bin Yarun. The Lundayeh male from Kemabong’s Kampung Sugiang Baru, Tenom.

His Sabahan parents despite being in Sabah before Sept 16, 1963 when Malaysia was formed, were only accorded permanent residency. Likewise for Tabias.

Tabias must ensure he married only a native in order to ensure citizenship and native status recognition for his children.
