ESSCOM WILL NOT REST ON ITS LAURELS

ESSCOM WILL NOT REST ON ITS LAURELS

The Eastern Sabah Security Command (Esscom) will not rest on its laurels in ensuring that there are no kidnap-for-ransom cases.

Its successes include operations against cross border-crime criminals, such as Masurani Insawani @ Tarab, who was shot dead at Kunak waters on Sept 29, and Abu Paliyak, who was killed in Silam waters on Dec 4.

Esscom, which has support from the state and Federal governments, will continue to conduct more initiatives to boost security. These include the implementations of road and sea checkpoints to prevent security threats from entering the state.

A road checkpoint is expected to be mounted in Kalabakan by the end of this month. Another would be set up in Telupid between next month and May.

Both checkpoints are located at main routes that connect the east and west coasts of Sabah, which are used by criminals.

Esscom Commander Datuk Hazani Ghazali said the checkpoints, which would involve security and enforcement agencies, would be implemented permanently at the routes.
