Nazri calls for MM2H scheme to be ‘reinstated’ under MOTAC

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 29): Padang Rengas lawmaker Nazri Abdul Aziz (pictured) has called on Putrajaya to “reinstate” the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) scheme under the Tourism, Arts, and Culture Ministry (MOTAC), the Malaysiakini news portal reported yesterday.

Nazri, who was also former minister in charge of MOTAC was speaking in the Dewan Rakyat yesterday on the MM2H issue.

“I have been made to understand that in the past when Motac had to get immigration approval for applications, (sometimes) immigration would end up rejecting them for no reason.

“If MM2H was placed under the Immigration Department, I think more applications will be rejected by immigration,” he said.

Nazri is also of the view that MM2H participants were not “security threats” and did not warrant “close scrutiny” by the Home Ministry.

“I urge the government to return the MM2H scheme to Motac where the Home Ministry will be able to reject applications if there is evidence that they are a threat to us,” he added.

The MM2H scheme was recently placed under the purview of the Home Ministry.
