Former IGP to speak on ‘Malaysia in Future’ Sept 19
KOTA KINABALU: A public talk on ‘Malaysia in The Future' by former Inspector General of Police Malaysia Tan Sri Rahim Noor will be held at the Ming Garden Hotel, Kota Kinabalu on 19th September at 7.30 pm. Admission is free.
The talk, which is limited to 200 people, is organised by PIPPA-Progressive Institute of Public Policy Analysis Sabah, a think tank established in 2007.
Over the years PIPPA has been organising talks and forums involving both local and overseas speakers.
PIPPA has also been participating as invited guests of other institutes such as the Perak Academy in Ipoh and the Yussof Ishak Institute in Singapore.
Tan Sri Rahim shall be talking mostly in general terms but he may be highlighting current topics of public interest, in particular the formation of Malaysia and what he considers to be the cornerstone that enticed Sabah and Sarawak as partners in the formation of Malaysia.
Rahim is not new in as far as understanding Sabahans' sentiments is concerned, as he was the Sabah Police Commissioner in 1985.
“I think Tan Sri Rahim is no ordinary Malay in the way the sees things when (it) comes to talk on building Malaysia; his views and sympathy of how Sabah and Sarawak are being treated these days,” said Amde Sidik, PIPPA chairman.
