Citizenship reinstated but still bitter

Kota Kinabalu:

Sino-Kadazan Yong Lee Hua @ Piang Lin's Malaysian citizenship was
finally restored by the National Registration Department (NRD) after it
was stripped from her after she lost her identity card (IC) last year. The 78-year-old picked up her new
IC from the NRD office at Federal Administrative Complex at Jalan UMS,
accompanied by her sons Frankie and Jonathan and Moyog Assemblyman
Donald Mojuntin and former PBS Supreme Council member Dr Chong En
Leong, Thursday. However, despite being overjoyed
about having "regained" her Malaysian citizenship, Yong was bitter
about the "hardship" that she had gone through for the past one year. "I am not satisfied because I
still do not know the real reason (cancellation of citizenship)," she
said. She said she visited the NRD office more than 10 times to change
her Permanent Resident (PR) status to Malaysian citizen but was not
entertained. Her misfortune started when her
wallet was stolen from her handbag while shopping in a supermarket at
Penampang Baru on Feb 12, last year. On the same day, she applied for
a replacement at the Donggongon NRD after lodging a police report.
After several months, she was told to collect her replacement IC. Being an illiterate, she didn't
find anything amiss when she saw the colour of the IC but instead
brought it home and proudly showed it to her children. She did ask the officer why it
was red but was told that it was for senior citizens who had lost their
ICs. Her children, however, were not amused because they knew such IC
was issued to those with PR status. They brought her back to the NRD
office to get it changed but the officer told her to "apply for
Malaysian citizenship" instead. It was the beginning of her
problem because soon after, her bank accounts were frozen resulting in
her unable to withdraw money for her daily expenses. She also could not travel outside the country because she could not renew her passport. She was told by the NRD officer
that she could not even travel to West Malaysia to visit her youngest
son who was working in a bank in Kuala Lumpur. Yong was so embarrassed
that she used her driving licence as proof of identity wherever she
went. She even used it as an identity document to vote during the March 8 general election. Thanks to Upko's Bureau for
Citizenship and Security, led by Donald Mojuntin, her case was
highlighted in the media that subsequently drew the attention of the
nation. Her son Jonathan, 48, also
concurred with his mother's demand for an explanation from the NRD.
"Even though the matter has been settled, we are not satisfied╔we want
explanation," he said.

Sedih bercampur geram juga bila melihat kejadian seperti ini berlaku terutama kepada mereka yang telah lama menetap di sini dan telah dikenali memang sebagai penduduk tempatan tetapi tiba-tiba mendapat KP warna merah. Entah apa maksud NRD berbuat demikian.
