KOTA KINABALU, Feb 16 — The Royal Malaysian Police will request the help of the international police organisation, Interpol, to trace “Doris Jones” on allegations of incitement relating to the alleged promotion of the secession of Sabah and Sarawak from Malaysia (SKMM movement) through Facebook.

Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Jalaluddin Abdul Rahman said the police would track down “Doris Jones” who was understood to be overseas.

"We will contact Interpol in efforts to locate and arrest ‘Doris Jones’ who is wanted by national security personnel following the seditious activities performed by her," he told reporters after launching the 6th Ops Selamat in conjunction with Chinese New Year celebrations, here today.

According to him, the arrest warrant for “Doris Jones” was issued in January by the Tuaran Court and all entry points to the country would be made aware of the warrant automatically under standard operating procedures.

The arrest warrant was issued against “Doris Jones” ordering her to appear in court today to answer a charge against her under the Sedition Act.   

Meanwhile, Jalaluddin believed the SSKM movement was orchestrated by opposition political parties.

“Doris Jones” claimed through her Facebook profile that she was a Sabahan and was currently residing in the United Kingdom working in the legal field. — Bernama
