KOTA KINABALU: Doris Jones, a Sabahan activist on self-imposed exile in the United Kingdom, has explained that she created the Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia Group (SSKM) on Facebook to raise awareness among her people on the status of the region in Malaysia and function as an educational campaign.
“Our campaign has been gathering strength in the last four years especially among the younger generation and has been institutionalised under the Sabah Sarawak Union – UK,” said Doris in a statement via Messenger.
“The senior citizens are now beginning to stir and we hope more will realise that the Malaysian government has been hiding the truth from them for the last 51 years.”
She was commenting on a statement by Sabah police that they had her in their sights and were now hunting her down.
One thrust of her campaign was to speak out against human rights violations with specific reference to the Sedition Act amidst calls for a return of the draconian Internal Security Act (ISA).
She welcomes any move by the Malaysian government to haul her to court in the United Kingdom.
“They can present their evidence in court and I will challenge it,” said Doris in confirming that no one has contacted her so far. “We should not be afraid of the truth. Justice cannot be denied.”
In her brief statement, Doris added that she was born in Sabah, North Borneo and used to work for an accountant and an Australian judge.
She didn’t disclose the name of the country where she was employed.
