Sabah activist dares authorities to extradite her

Alleged secessionist has no intention of returning to Malaysia to face possible sedition charges.

PETALING JAYA: Doris Jones, wanted by local authorities for promoting secession of Sabah and Sarawak from Malaysia, issued a dare to the authorities to utilise the proper channels to get her extradited back to Malaysia to face sedition charges.

She made it clear that she has no intentions of returning on her own accord.

Jones, accused of invoking secessionist sentiments via social media, through the Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia (SSKM) page on Facebook reportedly told The Star that she was not aware of any summons from the authorities which lead to an arrest warrant issued by the Kota Kinabalu magistrate’s court.

While refusing to disclose her exact location at the time, Jones said, “They can try to get me in the United Kingdom, the European Union (EU) or maybe even Australia. They can try.

“I don’t think Malaysia has any extradition treaties with the EU,” said Jones.

Jones also spared details about herself and refused to acknowledge if she was still a Malaysian citizen.

“I don’t want to answer that. I am from Sabah,” she said.

The wanted activist is believed to be based in London and according to her, also contested in the May 2014 European Parliament election, on a UK-based National Liberal Party ticket.

Earlier this month, 14 activists linked to the secession movement were arrested in Tuaran and Kota Kinabalu, but have all been released on bail.
