KUALA LUMPUR, May 5 — Wanted in Sabah for alleged sedition, Europe-based activist Doris Jones today questioned why she was allowed to walk in freely to the Malaysian High Commission in London without being handcuffed.
Following a recent meeting with Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem at the commission, Doris posted photos of the event as proof and issued a challenge to Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.
“Saya cabar Khalid Abu Bakar, jika benar ada arahan ke Interpol; mengapa semalam itu saya DI DALAM bangunan SURUHANJAYA KEDUTAAN MALAYSIA saya ni tidak di gari mengikut AKTA HASUTAN?” she wrote on social networking site Facebook this afternoon.
[Translation: I challenge Khalid Abu Bakar, if it’s true there was order given to Interpol; why is it last night when I was INSIDE the Malaysian High Commission I was not handcuffed according to the Sedition Act?]
The Sabahan also wrote on Facebook that she has yet to meet with Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.
In February, Sabah police confirmed that an arrest warrant had been issued for a 46-year-old Doris Yapp Kim Youn to bring her to court for sedition, also stating that Interpol had been contacted for assistance.
But Doris, who is accused of masterminding a Sabah and Sarawak secessionist movement, had told Malay Mail Online then that she has not heard anything from Interpol or the Malaysian police about the arrest warrant.
Doris, said to be behind a controversial social media movement called Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia or SSKM, said she is working under a United Kingdom-based non-governmental organisation called Sabah Sarawak Union.
The SSKM movement shot to prominence last year when a police report was lodged by a non-governmental organisation demanding police investigate the alleged act of treason.
The movement’s Facebook page gained more traction and had in February garnered nearly 32,000 “Likes”, mostly from Sabah’s rural youths.
