State Immigration Department director Datu Robert Lian has described a statement by Bandar Sibu MP Wong Ho Leng as “utter nonsense”.

Wong was said to have claimed that Immigration officers were alleged to have issued identity cards to illegal Indonesian workers.

Robert was quoted by a local daily to have said that Wong doesn’t know what he’s talking about because they (Immigration department) is not the agency issuing identity cards.

Wong had issued a statement in Sibu on Tuesday last week alleging that Immigration officers when visiting construction and oil palm companies asked for illegal workers from Indonesia to be given Malaysian identity cards in exchange for support towards Barisan Nasional in the upcoming general election.
