Arrest warrant out for secession activist

The Sabahan is believed to be operating a Facebook movement from overseas.

KOTA KINABALU: An activist promoting the secession of Sabah and Sawarak on Facebook and other social media sites has been issued a warrant of arrest for sedition.

Sabah Police commissioner Jalaluddin Abdul Rahman said an alert had been placed at all entry points for Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia activist Doris Jones as she was out of the country.

“Some say she is in London or maybe somewhere in Europe. We are on the alert for her if she enters the country,” The Star quoted Jalaluddin as saying.

He added that he was not sure if Jones, who got married in Britain, was still a Malaysian citizen.

It is understood that Jones, who is believed to be from Penampang, works in the legal sector in Britain . She has family members in Labuan.

She is also believed to be keeping in touch with Malaysian NGO networks through Skype.

“A total of 126 investigating papers have been opened on the postings. We have forwarded them to the deputy public prosecutor,” Jalaluddin said, urging Sabah NGOs not to get too involved in such activities.

“These NGOs were going around with petitions asking people to support secession.”
