ESSCOM will continue to hold programmes on security within ESSZONE

22nd October, 2013

LAHAD DATU: The Eastern Security Sabah Command (ESSCOM) will continue to hold programmes that aim towards enhancing security within the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (ESSZONE).

Its director-general, Datuk Mohamad Mentek said these included beefing up assets for defence and security as well as increasing personnel with several new battalions within the ESSZONE to ensure the Sulu intrusion in Tanduo never happens again.

He was speaking to reporters after presenting the latest briefing on ESSCOM to officials from the Sabah Economic Development and Investment Authority (SEDIA) yesterday.

The ESSCOM also intends to relocate residents in water villages within the ESSZONE in Semporna, Sandakan and Lahad Datu.

He is confident that ESSCOM has managed to restore the confidence of the people, tourists and investors in the level of security in ESSZONE.

“We can see this when last 7 October the Palm Oil Industrial Cluster signed a memorandum of understanding with Evolution Energy LLC from the US involving an investment of RM500 million to produce petrol, diesel, jet fuel and clean coal from waste oil palm by the year 2015,” said Mentek.

Apparently, the US is also keen to invest some RM6 billion for prawn farming.

The 24-hour ESSCOM operation room opened since 12 August has, as of last Friday, received 54 complaints on suspicious characters and illegal immigrants.
