Govt aid to ‘foreign’ children in Sabah puzzles PKR

By Dominic Legeh (FMT)

KOTA KINABALU: Financial aid is being distributed to children of non-citizens in Sabah and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) wants to know if this has become a government policy.

PKR Supreme Council Member, Ansari Abdullah said, the party had evidence that children of non-Malaysians were receiving financial assistance meant for Malaysian students from poor families in Sabah.

He said the pupils received between RM450 and RM600 annually through the Kumpulan Wang Amanah Pelajar Miskin (KWAPM).

Ansari distributed copies of the documents to the media during a press conference here yesterday to support his allegation. They comprised copies of the pupils’ birth certificates and pages of their bank books that had been sent to Sabah PKR communication director Ronnie Klassen earlier.

Describing it as a shocking discovery, Ansari said the documents confirmed the suspicions of many Sabahans that the government is supporting the children of non-Malaysians and stateless people in Sabah.
