KOTA KINABALU, Sept 22 — Police are not ruling out the possibility that several individuals from a neighbouring country holding dual citizenship might enter Sabah to vote and create trouble during polling on Saturday.

Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said there were rumours that this group has an agenda to support certain parties in the 16th Sabah state election.

He warned that stern action would be taken against any individual entering Sabah to create trouble.

“If we arrest them and confirm that they are holding dual citizenship, we will cancel their identity card and deport them from Malaysia.

“Don’t ever try to disturb the democratic process in this country,” he told reporters after observing the early voting process at the Senior Officers’ Mess of the Sabah police headquarters in Kepayan here today. — Bernama
