Shafie: Govt WILL pursue oil rights

12th June, 2018

By ERIC BAGANG

KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal is adamant in pursuing Sabah’s right on petroleum and other minerals.

According to him, he has indicated clearly to Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and other top leaders in Pakatan Harapan what Sabahans want in the issue, and they are clear with it.

“I just want to follow what the Sabahans want. The 20 per cent or whatever dues in terms of oil royalty and other minerals too,” he said, when asked to comment on recent developments on the subject.

Former Chief Minister, Tan Sri Musa Haji Aman in a statement on Sunday has ‘instructed’ the state Attorney General to look into the ongoing Petronas suit against Sarawak state government which wanted control over its oil and gas reserves.

Commenting further, Shafie said: “I don’t think he (Musa) is in the position to instruct the Attorney General as he is no longer chief minister.”

He said that he has advised the state attorney to be present at the hearing to listen to what is happening in the suit.

Like Sarawak, Shafie said that that Sabah also has interests in the oil and gas although he is taking a ‘different route’. He did not further elaborate.

While Sarawak has been vocal on the issue, the Sabah government has been rather subdued with leaders saying in unofficial statements saying that the cases in Sabah and Sarawak differ, and that the state government did not find it necessary to respond to the suit.
