On the first day of the operation, not many illegal immigrants (the pilaks) were detained as many of them were believed to have gone into hiding or returned to their home country in view of widely publicized massive operations.
Abdul Razak Abdul Ghani, Sabah Deputy State Police Commissioner said that they had actually anticipated to detain lower numbers of illegal immigrants this time due to earlier publicity of the operations. Guess who publicized the operation against the illegals ? Najib BIG MOUTH.
Najib big mouth act as an early warning for the pilak a few weeks in advance. Enough for the pilak to hide elsewhere until the operation is over.
So right now, it Sabah (Malaysia) 0, Pilak 1.

Operation against illegals continues
KOTA KINABALU: The latest operation to flush out illegal immigrants was conducted in Pulau Gaya and other immigrant hot spots around the city.
On the first day of the operation, not many illegal immigrants were detained as many of them were believed to have gone into hiding or returned to their home country in view of widely publicised massive operations.
Among those detained were children whose parents did not possess valid documents. Many managed to flee upon seeing the arrival of the enforcers knocking on the doors of their ‘kongsi’ and rented homes.
“The operation was conducted smoothly without any untoward incidents. We had actually anticipated to detain lower numbers of illegal immigrants this time due to earlier publicity of the operations,” said deputy State Police Commissioner Datuk Abdul Razak Abdul Ghani.
From the predawn sweep in Pulau Gaya, six Filipinos including a child were found without proper documents from among a total of 131 detained by police in various areas in the city and Penampang.
The screening process was carried out by the Immigration Department, National Registration Department and the Federal Special Task Force.
Those without legal documents would be sent to the temporary detention centre in Menggatal or the new centre at the army’s Kem Paradise in Kota Belud. Detainees would be deported after relevant travel documents are processed by the embassies.
The operations are being coordinated by a secretariat under the State Security Council headed by Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman and overseen by the Home Ministry.
These operations are expected to continue for the next few months in the west coast and followed by the east coast districts.
