He described MCA Youth chief Chong Sin Woon’s call to shut down the security agency following the abduction incident off Pulau Baik, Lahad Datu on Monday as irresponsible.
“MCA should understand ESSCom’s function and role and the situation at the ESSZone before uttering such statement,” he told reporters after a people’s voluntary corps shooting competition here. Chong made the call through a statement in a local newspaper.
Meanwhile in Kota Kinabalu, Tourism, Culture and Environment minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said in a statement that security issues should not be politicised by any quarters.
MCA should know how to differentiate between politics and issues that affect state and national security, said Masidi, who is also state Umno liaison assistant secretary. ― Bernama
