The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

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.
