SEMPORNA: The marine police here nabbed 20 individuals who were without identification documents late Tuesday night.

Sabah Marine Police commander ACP Mohamad Pajeri Ali said a marine police patrol boat intercepted a pump boat with 15 persons onboard in Terusan Silapak waters at about 12.30 am.

All are Filipinos and were attempting to enter the country illegally when they were detained by the marine police boat, he added.

When quizzed by marine policemen, they verbally admitted having come from Simunul in Tawi-Tawi and had each paid the boatman money to take them to Sabah, Mohamad Pajeri said.

“The marine policemen seized Philippine and Malaysian currencies, personal belongings, a boat and engine, propeller shaft, jerry can worth RM 11,490,” he said.

Mohamad Pajeri said the boat with the 15 individuals onboard, was taken to the Semporna Marine Police base for further investigation under Anti-Trafficking In Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Act 2007.

Meanwhile five men aged 22 to 53 were arrested in a village on Mabul Island at about 11.30 pm after they failed to produce any identification documents.

The marine police and the Semporna district Criminal Investigation Division were conducting a gambling raid when the five men tried to escape on realizing the presence of the operation team, he said.

Mohamad Pajeri said the five of them were detained and taken to the marine police base for further action under the Immigration Act 1959/63.
