Census on stateless, undocumented individuals

23rd June, 2018

KOTA KINABALU: A government affiliate called Gabungan NGOs Negeri Sabah (GANNOS) will conduct a census on about 800,000 individuals in the state who claim to be stateless or do not possess any identification document.

The organisation’s president Datuk Nani Sakam said the census would be carried out by 29 GANNOS associations from tomorrow in seven zones – North West Coast, South West Coast, Upper Interior, Lower Interior, Labuan, Sandakan and Tawau.

“For a start, the census task force will only collect 10 samples (undocumented individuals) in each district. They will be given till July 15 to return the census or research forms to the secretariat. The census report will be filed and submitted to the state and federal governments.

“Our aim is to help the people and government to address the issue. We do not want to see Sabah after 20 years for instance, being full of undocumented people,” he told reporters after chairing a meeting for the census task force here on Friday.

He said a monitoring and disciplinary committee would also be formed to prevent any party from taking illicit advantage of the census including soliciting money from the public. –Bernama
