CREDI STAR ONLINE 11 JUNE 2013 dept probes how myanmar nationals got fake UNHCR cards
KUALA LUMPUR: The Immigration Department is investigating how 307 people, who were among 1,054 Myanmar nationals rounded up here last week, had fake United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) Malaysia cards and documents.
Its Kuala Lumpur enforcement chief James Musa Singa said officers were interviewing them to ascer-tain the source of the forged documents.
“We want to know who are involved. Investigations are still in the early stages, I can’t say more.
“The findings will be forwarded to the Attorney-General’s Chambers in two weeks,” he said, adding that the matter would come under the Criminal Procedure Code.
On Friday, 1,000 Myanmar nationals were picked up by a police task force following clashes between Myanmar Muslims and their Buddhist counterparts.
It was found that 196 of them did not have proper documents while 57 held fake UNHCR Malaysia cards.
On Saturday, police detained another 54 Myanmar nationals in Cheras, Brickfields and Sentul.
UNHCR spokesman Yante Ismail said it was cooperating with the police in its investigations but clarified that some of those who carried fake documents could still have a valid refugee claim.
“If they are in need of international protection but have not registered with us, UNHCR will still advocate on their behalf against arrest and deportation for immigration offences until their refugee claims can be verified,” she said.
