"Tuan Speaker, Point No. 5 on Tan Seng Hin case; touching on vendetta, I recall another case involving Chinese educationist and businessman, Tan Seng Hin who has resided in Miri with his family for 23 years.

Due to his position as a Secretary of Miri Hainan Association, he may have expressed his views too strongly on Chinese education that may have upset somebody in the state government. He found himself deported from Sarawak and thereafter he was not allowed to enter the state to be with his family in Miri.

Tuan Speaker, this case has been widely reported since it happened in 2001, and it was even brought up in Parliament on his behalf by concerned MPs from the Opposition.

Tuan Speaker, just for voicing his views that differed from others or a politician, Tan was forced to be separated from his family in Miri who included his spouse and two children.

Recently, Tan wanted to visit Miri for his children‟s wedding but was still not allowed to enter the state after all these years. This is a serious case of injustice that was still unresolved, and which would affect the people‟s perception of the state government.

For humanitarian reason, Tuan Speaker, I wish to highlight this case involving the use of immigration powers for petty purposes such as vendetta and politics, rather than any real threat from outside. The use of state immigration power to harass a fellow Malaysian citizen on no valid grounds would be perceived by the public as an abuse of power by those in Government position in imposing judgment arbitrarily and which is not sanctioned by the court.

Tuan Speaker, therefore, I would like to ask the Chief Minister if there is any avenue for those blacklisted to appeal to be taken off the immigration blacklist, since the procedure seems to be arbitrary and may have been unjustified as in the case of Tan Seng Hin who longs to be reunited with his family here.

Finally, I urge the state government to use immigration autonomy wisely in keeping the state safe from extremists and terrorists, and not for political motives.

In doing so, it should also show compassion to fellow Malaysian citizens from other states with family or contributions here. Any blacklist ing of people should be justified with valid reasons, and an avenue must also be open for appeal in the interest of justice and fair play."
