  • Description

    SCREENING ILLEGAL INDONESIAN IMMIGRANTS INTO SARAWAK IS A FULL TIME JOB FOR INVESTIGATORS WATCHING FOR INFILTRATORS FROM INDONESIAN BORNEO - ACCORDING TO THE INDONESIAN ARMY VETERANS' ASSOCIATION TODAY (THURSDAY) 33,000 OF ITS MEMBERS LIVING THERE HAVE VOLUNTEERED TO FIGHT ON THE SIDE OF THE BRUNEI REBELS. AND THE VOLUNTEERS ARE NOW AWAITING ORDERS FROM THEIR GOVERNMENT TO GO INTO ACTION, THE ASSOCIATION SAYS.

    ONE OF THE MANY SECURITY CHECK POSTS IN SARAWAK IS THE SMALL TOWN OF TEBEDU, NEAR THE BORDER WITH INDONESIA. IT HAS SOME 10 LOCAL POLICEMEN, BUT IN A DAY THEY ROUNDED UP NEARLY 200 INDONESIANS WHO WALKED INTO THE SERIAN DISTRICT.

    THE SECURITY CHECK IN TEBEDU IS NOW STRICTER, THOUGH MANY JUNGLE PATHS LEAD INTO THE TOWN WITHOUT ANY NORMAL CHECKS ALONG BORDERS. MOST OF THE IMMIGRANTS REPORTED THEY HAVE COME TO TRADE OR LOOK FOR JOBS AND HAVE NO POLITICAL MOTIVES.
