KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 3, 2015:
London-based activist Doris Jones is ready to return home and face sedition charges against her.
However, she has a condition, which was the renewal of her passport, reported The Star.
This after her application to renew her passport at the Malaysian High Commission in London was refused as she planned to return to Sabah this month.
“I am not running away from anything,” she was reported to have said.
According to the report, Jones planned to return to Sabah this month but her passport expired on Sept 30.
She told the English daily that her inability to renew her passport would not affect her residency in England where she holds PR status.
Jones was wanted by Malaysian police for allegedly masterminding the Sabah and Sarawak secession movement.
Said to also be the person behind the controversial social media movement called SSKM, Jones is working under a United Kingdom-based non-governmental organisation called Sabah Sarawak Union.
In May, Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Jalaluddin Abdul Rahman announced that the magistrate court had issued a warrant of arrest for her promotion of the East Malaysia states’ secession from the federation, putting her in the police’s wanted list.
