SEMPORNA – Investigate and take action against party members who are said to be involved in any movement to topple the government, said UMNO vice-president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.
He said the authorities must investigate in more depth to determine the truth of the allegations.
“If it is proven that there are party members who are involved (in the movement) and it violates the law, then action can be taken because we must understand the democratic system and there are certain regulations that we must adhere to,” he told reporters after making a working visit to Pulau Larapan, near here today.
He said this when asked to comment on the disclosure by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi yesterday, on the movement to topple the government masterminded by the opposition and Barisan Nasional (BN) and UMNO leaders.
Meanwhile, Mohd Shafie, who is also the Member of Parliament for Semporna, said his working visit was to ensure that all basic amenities in the villages could be provided in the best manner possible.
“We have visited several basic facilities in this area (Kampung Pulau Larapan) and there are several things that need to be done to ensure that the basic facilities are always in good order.
“We suggest that the relevant agencies such as the Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) or other agencies can provide training to the youths in the village so that they can monitor or resolve any problem concerning basic amenities such as electricity supply or the solar system,” he said. – Bernama
