Parti Warisan Sabah (Warisan) president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal today apologised to every security forces personnel, their families and Malaysians as a whole for a statement made by one of his party leaders alleging that the incursion by terrorists in Kampung Tanduo, Lahad Datu, in 2013, was “just a farce”.

Mohd Shafie, who is also caretaker Sabah Chief Minister, explained that the leader had made the statement spontaneously and was misunderstood, and that he had no intention whatsoever of belittling the deeds of security forces personnel who sacrificed their lives to protect the people and the country.

Mohd Shafie said the Sabah government had set aside a fund of RM10 million to be distributed to those on the front lines, including RM1 million to the Royal Malaysia Police and RM1 million to the Lok Kawi Camp.

“Yes, the amount is small compared to the risks and the sacrifices made by our national heroes, but it proves the commitment of the Sabah government, even though the security agencies are under the purview of the federal government,” he said.


KOTA KINABALU: Parti Warisan Sabah (WARISAN) president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal today apologised to every security forces personnel, their families and Malaysians as a whole for a statement made by one of his party leaders alleging that the incursion by terrorists in Kampung Tanduo, Lahad Datu, in 2013, was “just a farce”.

Mohd Shafie, who is also caretaker Sabah Chief Minister, explained that the leader had made the statement spontaneously and was misunderstood, and that he had no intention whatsoever of belittling the deeds of security forces personnel who sacrificed their lives to protect the people and the country.




As a former Defence Minister himself, Mohd Shafie said he was well aware of the many hardships faced by security forces personnel in safeguarding the country’s borders, especially in isolated control posts in the interior of Sabah.

“Every member of the security forces at the border were not only prepared to sacrifice their lives for the safety of their fellow Malaysians, but had also suffered being far away from their loved ones throughout their deployment,” he said in a statement here today.

Mohd Shafie said he also understood and appreciated the roles of the security forces personnel as the frontliners in facing a dangerous but unseen enemy.

Mohd Shafie said the Sabah government had set aside a fund of RM10 million to be distributed to those on the front lines, including RM1 million to the Royal Malaysia Police and RM1 million to the Lok Kawi Camp.

“Yes, the amount is small compared to the risks and the sacrifices made by our national heroes, but it proves the commitment of the Sabah government, even though the security agencies are under the purview of the federal government,” he said.

Yesterday, a short video clip of a campaign speech made by Datuk Mohamaddin Ketapi, a former minister and Warisan candidate for the Segama seat in the Sabah state election, went viral. In the video, he described the Lahad Datu intrusion as a farce.

The Sabah people will go to the polls on Sept 26.
