PETALING JAYA: Sabah deputy chief minister Jeffrey Kitingan has expressed concern over the economy ministry’s push for Malaysians to register with the central database hub (Padu), citing data privacy in particular.

With about 65% of Malaysia’s population yet to register, Kitingan said this reflected a profound lack of trust in the initiative.
