"Monitoring and investigation (bringing in militant ideology) is still ongoing by Sarawak police," he told reporters after a briefing on 'Awareness of extremism and IS threat' here today.
He said so far the identity or nationality of those trying to bring in such militant ideology to Sarawak could not be made public.
"If we expose all, those involved will be alerted of being monitored and this involves not only one party but a big network," he said.
He said amendments and the existence of new laws such as the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (Sosma) 2012, Prevention of Crime Act (Poca) 2013 and Prevention of Terrorism Act 2015 (Pota) greatly helped police to prevent militant ideology from infiltrating into Sarawak.
The event, organised by Miri Information Department, was officiated by Sibuti Member of Parliament Ahmad Lai Bujang.
