Lahad Datu — The Eastern Sabah Security Command (ESSCOM) will tighten maritime and land security to prevent illegal foreign migrants to enter our country via Sabah.

Esscom has identified the illegal routes commonly used by the illegal migrants attempting to enter our country, its Commander Datuk Hazani Ghazali told the media.

“Those non-gazetted areas commonly used by the illegal migrants will be closely watched by Esscom to prevent them from entering in.”

With the geographic position of Sabah waters near to Kalimantan, we also closely watch for any illegal activities carried out by the foreign migrants, Datuk Hazani added.

At present, we are doubling our efforts to tight land and sea entry points commonly used by the illegal migrants, Datuk Hazani confirmed after handing out daily necessity items to the police and army personnel manning the Movement Control Order roadblocks.
