SEMPORNA, Oct 31, 2015:
Malaysians in Sabah should have faith in the ability of the Eastern Sabah Security Command (ESSCom) to safeguard the state, particularly the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (ESSZone).
ESSCom Operations Centre chief of staff Datuk Md Rahim Mohamad who stressed this, urged the people to set aside any negative perception about ESSCom.
“ESSCom’s main function is to coordinate integrated operations to eliminate smuggling activities and illegal immigrants in the state.
“In this respect, the community here will regain their place in the local business dominated by illegal immigrants and improve their economic status,” he said at a community programme near here today.
Md Rahim said ESSCom’s success in foiling nine attempts of kidnapping, including the latest in Semporna earlier this month, had restored calm in ESSZone as well as the confidence of foreign tourists.
