Sabah RCI: Businesswoman testifies that her old IC was used by another person

KOTA KINABALU: A businesswoman told the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on illegal immigrants in Sabah that she found out her old identity card (IC) was used by another person when she went to open a bank account in 2007.

Chia Oi Len, 59, from Papar, said she had changed her old IC, with serial number beginning H, to the IC embossed with a hibiscus flower picture, but it was never reported lost.

“The Kota Kinabalu Maybank branch told me that they could not entertain my request to open a savings account because somebody else had used my old IC in Kuala Lumpur,” she added.

Chia said she then lodged a police report and then changed the IC to the MyKad IC, which she used to apply, and was approved to open an account at the bank, but was disallowed from applying for the (Auto-Teller Machine ) ATM card.

She was testifying before the five-member RCI panel led by former Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak, Tan Sri Steve Shim Lip Kiong.
