SEMPORNA, July 13 (Bernama) -- The Eastern Sabah Security Command (ESSCom) detained 12 undocumented immigrants in an operation on Nusa Island 3 this morning.

Its commander DCP Datuk Hazani Ghazali said the foreigners aged between 11 and 70 years were  nabbed between 5.30 am and 8 am.

"The operation targetted squatter colonies on the island," he said in a statement here today.

He said the men were sent to a temporary detention centre in Tawau for documentation before being deported.

Meanwhile, Hazani said 104 police, army, maritime and immigration personnel were involved in the operation to flush out squatter colonies suspected of being hideaways for cross-border criminals including smugglers.
