Prove Claims That Sabah Is Human Trafficking Transit Point

TAWAU, Aug 9 (Bernama) -- Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Noor Rashid Ibrahim urged all parties, including non-governmental organisations (NGOs), to prove their claims that Sabah was an entry point for human trafficking activities.

He said those who made unsubstantiated claims would only jeopardise police investigations into the activities.

"So far there is little information about the issue," he told Bernama here, today.

He was commenting on claims by a Tenaganita coordinator, Aegile Fernandez, in Kota Kinabalu recently that Sabah was the main entry point for the trafficking of children, labour and sex workers.

"She made the same allegation before and I have sent her a letter asking her to cooperate with us if she has any information. Until today she has not replied to the letter.

"Do not make baseless allegations as these will cast negative perception on us, as if the police are not doing their work," he said.
