Court drops sedition charges against four Sabah secessionists

KOTA KINABALU, Sept 28 — The Sessions Court today dropped sedition charges against four Sabahans for possession of Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia (SSKM) pamphlets.

The four — Jemmy Liku Markus Ratu, Erick Jack William, Joseph Kolis, and Azrie Situ were charged under the Sedition Act last year for possessing and distributing seditious pamphlets at the Tuaran open market.

Today, the prosecution applied for a discharge not amounting to acquittal in the case.

“We did not object to the application by deputy public prosecutor Gan Peng Kun for the discharge,” said counsel for the four, Fuad Tengku Ahmad.

When contacted, Gan said that the application was an instruction from his headquarters.

Judge Abu Bakar Abdul Manat had subsequently ordered that the four be discharged not amounting to an acquittal and that bail deposits are to be refunded.

The four volunteers of the controversial secession group was charged with sedition last year under Section 4 (2) of the Sedition Act 1948 for allegedly being in possession of pamphlets allegedly propagating Sabah’s secession from the federation.

The allegedly seditious pamphlets advocated that Sabah’s rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 had been breached by the Federal government.

“After much discussion, engagement and consultation with senior Sabah political figures and members of the Federal government, the four accused have reflected seriously on their cause, their actions and the choices that they have made.

“My clients are regretful and contrite about what they have done and at no time did they intend to stir up civil disobedience. It was their hope that Sabah’s position would be improved by their actions,” he said.

He said that moving forward, his clients will “follow a more considered and rational path in life.”

Tengku Fuad also thanked the Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali and the deputy public prosecutor for the discharge.

“My clients maintain their stand that they love Sabah and are committed to upholding the rights of its people and the state through lawful means. They understand that this must be done within the framework of the Federation of Malaysia.

The four accused could have been sentenced to a maximum of 18 months or a fine of RM2,000 or both if convicted.

Kenyataan rasmi SSKM-SSU(UK) Terhadap Artikel Uqbah Iqbal

Salam sejahtera dan Salam Hormat kepada semua Bangsa Negara Sabah dan Bangsa Negara Sarawak. Saya Doris Jones yang mewakili Kumpulan Sosial didalam Facebook dengan nama Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia (SSKM) yang kini sudah bergerak melalui satu Badan NGO yang berdaftar dibawah bidang kuasa perundangan Kerajaan United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) dengan nama Sabah Sarawak Union (SSU-UK) ingin membuat satu kenyataan rasmi berhubung dengan satu artikel yang mempersoalkan "status Sabah sebagai sebuah negara adalah mitos" oleh seorang anak kelahiran Sabah berstatus pendidikan "PhD".

Pihak kami terpanggil untuk memberikan jawapan balas terhadap artikel yang telah diterbitkan olehnya yang kini bekerja di Malaysian Historian & Entrepreneur dengan kelulusan daripada Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). Dalam artikelnya ini, ia telah mempersoalkan tentang status Sabah sebagai sebuah negara dan melalui pendapatnya setelah membuat pembacaan yang tidak terhingga (sepertimana yang diakuinya), ia telah menyimpulkan secara peribadi yang menurutnya bahawa Sabah sebagai sebuah negara itu hanyalah satu cerita "mitos" (Opinion on SSKM and Sabah Country Myth).

Terlebih dahulu, ribuan terima kasih pihak kami ucapkan atas kesudiannya yang telah melapangkan masa untuk menyangkal fakta sejarah yang telah pihak kami dedahkan kepada umum sebelum ini. Kami juga bersedia untuk terus berhadapan dengan orang-orang sepertinya dimasa akan datang yang begitu bersemangat untuk meruntuhkan semangat dan moral perjuangan bangsa negara Sabah dan bangsa negara Sarawak.

Sebelum saya memulakan hujah saya, satu persoalan yang ingin saya ajukan kepadanya iaitu "adakah England, Scotland, Wales dan Northern Ireland itu berstatus negara-negara didalam satu Persekutuan Negara yang dipanggil The Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK)?"

Setelah membuat penelitian terhadap artikel yang diterbitkan olehnya, saya mendapati bahawa hujahnya amatlah cetek dan sungguh memalukan bagi sebuah artikel seperti ini yang telah dikeluarkan oleh seseorang yang berkelulusan PhD dan yang sewaktu dengannya.

Dalam artikel ini, dia bukan sahaja gagal untuk memberikan definisi negara kerana mungkin "tidak berkesempatan" kerana ketiadaan masa malah gagal sepenuhnya untuk memahami konteks kefahaman "negara" itu sendiri. Maka biarkan saya memberikan pengertian negara yang sangat asas terlebih dahulu kepadanya berdasarkan kepada definisi didalam kamus Oxford yang menjadi rujukan antarabangsa bagi mengelakkan kekeliruan kefahaman seperti mana yang sedang dialaminya kini.

Menurut kamus Oxford, "Negara (Country)" bermaksud satu kawasan tanah yang mempunyai atau pernah memiliki kerajaan sendiri dan undang-undang. (Penterjemahan asal: "an area of land that has or used to have its own government and laws").

Melalui definisi ini, adakah Sabah tidak mempunyai kawasan tanah yang mempunyai atau pernah memiliki kerajaan sendiri dan undang-undang?

Dalam bahasa yang paling mudah, negara dapat didefinisikan sebagai sesebuah wilayah yang mempunyai bangsa, budaya dan memiliki sebuah kerajaan yang sah yang dipilih melalui pilihanraya serta memiliki kuasa perundangan dan kedaulatan (kuasa perundangan dan kedaulatan akan diberikan penjelasan nanti). Sesebuah kawasan dikatakan "sebuah negara" apabila kawasan tersebut memiliki bangsa/rakyat, wilayah dan pemerintah. Selain itu juga, ia mendapat pengiktirafan daripada negara luar.

Saya ingin membawa anda kepada satu sumber rujukan yang berjudul "British Borneo: Sketches of Brunai, Sarawak, Labuan and North Borneo" yang telah ditulis oleh W.H.Treacher, C.M.G., M.A. Oxon., yang juga merupakan Governor Pertama British North Borneo.

Dalam buku ini, beliau menjelaskan tentang status North Borneo dibawah British North Borneo Company seperti berikut:
Queen Victoria granted a Charter of Incorporation to the British North Borneo Company, which by confirming the grants and concessions acquired from the Sultans of Brunei and Sulu, constitutes the Company the sovereign ruler over a territory of 31,000 square miles, and, as the permission to trade, included in the Charter, has not been taken advantage of, the British North Borneo Company now does actually exist "as a Territorial Power" and not "as a Trading Company.
Sabah atau dahulunya dikenali sebagai British North Borneo Company telah wujud sebagai satu wilayah ataupun dalam ertikata lain sebagai negara yang berdaulat dibawah Piagam Syarikat British Borneo Utara, yang melaksanakan kuasa kedaulatan dan perundangannya secara bebas. Ini termasuk juga kuasa untuk berdagang dengan negara-negara luar melalui hubungan diplomasi setelah diberikan kuasa oleh Ratu Victoria pada tahun 1881.

Sabah yang dahulunya merupakan sebahagian wilayah Kerajaan Brunei telah diserahkan kepada Syarikat British Borneo Utara secara sah.

Sabah sebagai sebuah negara juga dapat disokong melalui satu jurnal yang bertajuk "Sabah (Malaysia) - Australia Relations: An Historical Observation" yang ditulis oleh Rizal Zamani Idris, Bilcher Bala dan Azizan H.Morshidi mengatakan didalam artikel ini seperti berikut;
These two political entities share a lot in common due to their historical past. They have both known one another since the 18th century. Notably, both countries had a British colonial background that has been founded by private explorers from England. Nonetheless, they experienced different fates from the start of the 20th century. "
Status Sabah sebagai sebuah negara boleh difahami melalui kajian sejarah diantara dua buah negara ini kerana kedua-dua negara ini mempunyai hubungan sejarah yang hampir sama.

Meskipun Sabah ataupun dahulunya dikenali sebagai North Borneo berada dibawah penjajahan British, ia tetap berstatus sebagai satu negara kerana memiliki perlembagaannya tersendiri (British North Borneo Constitution). Sabah memiliki polis dan ketenteraan yang menjaga keamanan negara. Selain itu juga, Sabah memiliki Matawang dengan nama British North Borneo Company Dollar.

Didalam sebuah buku yang bertajuk "The Prehistory of Borneo" yang telah ditulis oleh Tom Harrisson, beliau mengakui North Borneo (Sabah) adalah negara. Ia dapat dilihat dengan jelas melalui kenyataannya tentang perkongsian keadaan geografikal negara-negara ini. Ia adalah seperti berikut;
Most of Borneo is still inaccessible by modern means of communication. The island includes some of the wildest and most difficult country in Southeast Asia.
Selain itu juga, sebuah buku yang bertajuk "Stories from Sabah History" yang ditulis oleh F.G. Whelan berulang-ulang kali mengatakan Sabah adalah sebuah negara didalam penulisannya. Ia adalah seperti berikut;
All this meant that the Government of the country was in the hands of the Japanese and if they wanted anything from the local people they could take it.
Chester had been a rubber planter on the west coast of Sabah and knew the country well.
There is a memorial garden now built on this spot and every year on the anniversary of the executions there is a religious service to honour the memory of these men who died for their country.
Albert Kwok was a hero who fought bravely for his country and gave his life so that others could live in liberty and peace
Tambahan kepada sumber ini, saya ingin mengukuhkan lagi hujah melalui kenyataan Governor North Borneo yang terakhir yang dipetik didalam buku yang berjudul "Malaysia", dihasilkan oleh Professor AJ Stockwell untuk dijadikan rujukan didalam Institute of Commonwealth Studies di University of London. Ia adalah seperti berikut;
Although Goode reported at the end of 1960 that there were no political parties and the country's claim 'to have no politics' was still broadly true, he noted that this was unlikely to last much longer in the light of outside influences and growing pressure for closer association with neighbouring countries.
In Tory's opinion, this tension plus the country's poverty could only delay progress towards self-government.
After the commissioners departed, Goode elaborated his ideas: he accepted Malaysia - even advocating that it should be inaugurated while the iron was hot -but he insisted that, before sovereignty was transferred to Kuala Lumpur, there should be a prolonged transitional period during which expatriate officials would administer the country.
I suggested that we must now begin to think of the political structures that go to the building of a nation and in that phrase I included the relations of the several communities within North Borneo, each with the others, the association and identification of all the people of the country with its government, and the relations of this country and government with others external to it - particularly with its near neighbours, Brunei and Sarawak.
It is a subject on which I have pondered for years and there remains no question in my mind that it is to the long term advantage of the peoples of all three countries that they should join together to become as nearly as possible one country as their many differences may permit"
I shall go, regretfully, perhaps long before this dramatic adventure is embarked on; it is you who will live in the federated country if it is brought about and it is your opinion that, at any rate as far as North Borneo is concerned, must be decisive.
I have many times expressed the hope that North Borneo, which I am quite sure will ultimately emerge as a strong country, would evolve in accordance with its own genius
Ini adalah antara kenyataan-kenyataan yang tercatat didalam rekod kajian yang menyatakan dengan jelas bahawa Sabah ataupun dahulu dikenali sebagai North Borneo merupakan sebuah negara. Terdapat banyak lagi kenyataan-kenyataan yang sama namun cukuplah untuk setakat ini untuk dikongsikan daripada buku tersebut.

Saya tertanya-tanya sama ada benarkah anda telah melakukan kajian dengan terperinci atau sekadar kajian bawah pokok yang tidak mempunyai kualiti seperti mana artikel anda dihasilkan ini?

Untuk memanjangkan lagi hujah ini, mari kita bersama-sama memahami perkara ini melalui sudut yang berbeza.

Terdapat permasalahan yang timbul kerana tidak semua orang yang bersetuju dengan definisi "negara" atas faktor politik. Ini kerana sesetengah negara selesa untuk mengiktiraf sesebuah wilayah itu sebagai sebuah negara dan ada juga negara lain yang tidak mahu mengiktirafnya.

Sebagai contoh, Taiwan mendakwa bahawa wilayah mereka adalah sebuah negara tetapi China pula mengatakan bahawa Taiwan adalah sebahagian daripada China. Kesannya adalah disebabkan Amerika tidak mahu mengecewakan China, Amerika tidak mengiktiraf Taiwan sebagai sebuah negara. Untuk contoh yang lain pula, selepas Perang Dunia Kedua, Kesatuan Soviet (Soviet Union) telah memasukkan negara Estonia, Latvia dan Lithuania kedalam Kesatuannya namun Amerika terus mengiktiraf ketiga-tiga wilayah ini sebagai "Negara Merdeka" yang telah dijajah disebabkan negara-negara ini tidak sehaluan dengan Kesatuan Soviet.

Contoh yang lain pula adalah seperti Bavaria (kini sebahagian daripada Jerman) dan Piedmont (kini sebahagian daripada Italia) tidak dirujuk sebagai "negara" dalam keadaan normal walaupun mereka pernah menjadi sebuah negara yang berdiri sendiri pada masa yang lalu.

Jadi, persoalannya ialah bagaimana kerajaan mendefinisikan "sebuah negara"?

Terdapat Tiga (3) terma rujukan yang boleh mendefinisikan bagaimana sesebuah negara itu wujud. Ia adalah melalui;
  • The Montevideo Convention
  • Constitutive Theory of statehood
  • Declarative theory of statehood
1. The Montevideo Convention adalah mengenai konvensyen perjanjian Hak dan Kewajipan Negara yang ditandatangani di Montevideo, Uruguay, pada 26 Disember 1933.

Konvensyen ini telah menggariskan definisi, hak dan tanggungjawab kenegaraan (statehood). Artikel 1 adalah artikel yang terkenal kerana telah menggariskan empat kriteria kenegaraan seperti dibawah
Negara sebagai seorang individu mengikut undang-undang antarabangsa perlu memiliki kelayakan-kelayakan:

(a) Penduduk tetap;
(b) Wilayah tetap;
(c) Kerajaan; dan
(d) kapasiti untuk mewujudkan hubungan dengan negara luar.

Artikel 3 didalam konvensyen ini juga mengistiharkan bahawa kenegaraan adalah satu pengiktirafan bebas daripada negara luar. Makanya sesebuah negara itu boleh wujud meskipun negara lain tidak mengitirafnya.

2. The Declarative theory of statehood adalah berdasarkan kepada 4 kriteria yang dinyatakan dalam Konvensyen Montevideo.

3. The constitutive theory of statehood mendefinisikan negeri ataupun negara sebagai orang undang-undang antarabangsa (as a person of international law) jika dan hanya jika ia diiktiraf sebagai sebuah negara yang berdaulat oleh negara-negara lain. Ini bermaksud, selagi cukup negara-negara luar mengiktiraf anda sebagai sebuah negara, maka anda adalah sebuah negara meskipun anda tidak mempunyai kawalan terhadap wilayah atau penduduk tetap anda.

Jadi, melalui dua definisi ini, ia telah membenarkan sebilangan negara-negara itu wujud.

Pada hari ini, cara kebiasaan untuk mengiktiraf sesebuah negara itu adalah dengan mengelak dua definisi ini dan mengatakan terus bahawa jika ia adalah anggota Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu (United Nation-UN), maka ia adalah sebuah negara. Jikalau tidak, maka ia bukan sebuah negara.

Namun dengan kenyataan seperti ini, bagaimana pula status Vatican City yang sememangnya adalah sebuah negara namun bukan anggota Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu (UN)?

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) merupakan ahli didalam Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu, tetapi negara-negara didalam UK seperti England, Scotland dan Northern Ireland bukan ahli UN, jadi dengan berdasarkan kepada undang-undang Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu (UN), mereka bukan berstatus negara pula.

Dengan kenyataan ini, ia sudah tentu bercanggah dengan kenyataan Kerajaan UK yang mengatakan bahawa "United Kingdom dibentuk oleh empat buah negara iaitu England, Scotland, Wales dan Northern Ireland".

Hujah saya juga dapat disokong bahawa Sabah adalah sebuah negara melalui sumber dokumen daripada United Nation (UN) yang bertajuk Classification of Countries by major Area and Region of the World yang telah diterbitkan oleh Population Division, Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

Didalam klasifikasi negara-negara di Asia Tenggara UN, "Malaysia" dan "termasuk Sabah dan Sarawak" telah disenaraikan didalam klasifikasi ini dengan jelas sekali.

Setelah memberikan sokongan hujah dan contoh-contoh yang berkaitan, kini saya akan beralih kepada menjawab persoalan-persoalan yang anda timbulkan didalam artikel anda ini.

Kenyataan anda yang mengatakan bahawa anda tidak mempunyai masa yang mencukupi untuk menyenaraikan kajian lebih adalah satu alasan yang tidak seharusnya diberikan oleh seseorang yang berstatus PhD seperti anda.

Apabila pihak kami memberikan perkongsian dan membuat pendedahan sejarah, ini tidak bermaksud bahawa kami lebih hebat daripada ahli-ahli sejarawan dunia seperti K.G. Tregonning. Ini kerana apa yang pihak kami lakukan adalah berkongsikan dengan fakta-fakta yang sahih bagi mematahkan fakta sejarah songsang dan palsu yang telah diajar oleh kerajaan malaya.

Sumber rujukan kami adalah rahsia yang hanya akan digunakan bagi mematahkan serangan kerajaan malaya. Walau bagaimanapun, pihak kami sebenarnya sudah mendedahkan secara tidak langsung tentang sumber-sumber rujukan kami kepada umum.

Melalui sumber pada masa lalu yang terhad, pihak kami pada mulanya yakin bahawa North Borneo ataupun Sabah mencapai Kemerdekaan pada 31 August 1963. Namun setelah sumber demi sumber terbaru ditemui, pihak kami menyedari bahawa pada 31 August 1963 adalah sebenarnya merupakan tarikh Hari Negara Sabah Berkerajaan Sendiri yang telah diberikan oleh Kerajaan British. Walau bagaimanapun, perjuangan dan jiwa untuk menuntut Merdeka itu tidak pernah terkubur kerana British telah menjanjikan Kemerdekaan kepada Negara Sabah dan ia masih lagi dipegang oleh rakyat negara Sabah dan negara Sarawak.

Pihak kami tidak menafikan bahawa Negara Sarawak juga bersama-sama dengan Negara Sabah mencapai status Berkerajaan Sendiri pada 31 August 1963 walau bagaimanapun, Kerajaan Negara Sarawak telah menjalankan peranan dengan status sebagai sebuah Berkerajaan Sendiri pada 22 Julai 1963, sebulan lebih awal berbanding dengan Negara Sabah.

Persoalan-persoalan yang anda kemukakan ini semua sebenarnya sudah dijawab oleh pihak kami. Cuma satu persoalan yang timbul ialah adakah anda malas mencari dan malas membaca atau tidak melakukan kajian ini dengan bersungguh-sungguh?

"Sukan Olympic" dan status "Yang Dipertua Negara Sabah" merupakan satu indikator dan bukti yang menyokong kepada status Sabah sebagai sebuah negara. Adakah itu terlalu sukar untuk anda memahaminya? Ataupun anda mengalami kerosakan kepala yang kekal (Permanent head Damaged-PhD)?

Untuk pengetahuan anda juga, Persekutuan Malaysia (bukan Negara Malaysia) telah dibentuk pada 16 September 1963 yang dianggotai oleh Sabah, Sarawak, Singapura dan Malaya melalui satu Perjanjian Antarabangsa yang ditandatangani pada 9 Julai 1963.

Perjanjian Malaysia ini adalah hasil daripada Laporan Cobbold dan kemudian pemimpin-pemimpin Negara Sabah (North Borneo) telah mengeluarkan Memorandum 20 Perkara yang dihasilkan daripada Laporan Cobbold untuk diberikan perhatian khusus sebelum North Borneo bersetuju untuk membentuk Malaysia. Selepas itu, Laporan Intergovernmental Committee (IGC) dikeluarkan oleh Lord Landsowne tetapi menolak Perkara 7 (Hak tidak seharusnya berpisah) daripada dimasukkan kedalam Perjanjian kerana menurutnya, pembentukkan Persekutuan Malaysia ini dibentuk atas dasar sukarela, maka apabila anggota-anggota Persekutuan Malaysia ini merasakan bahawa Persekutuan ini tidak mendatangkan apa-apa manfaat, maka atas dasar sukarela juga mereka boleh menarik diri pada bila-bila masa.

Konsep Pembentukkan Malaysia ini adalah berdasarkan kepada konsep Rakan Kongsi Sama Taraf!

Pada tahun 1976, konsep Persekutuan Malaysia 1963 telah dibubarkan melalui pindaan perlembagaan Malaysia yang telah menyenaraikan Sabah dan Sarawak sebagai negeri ke-12 dan ke-13 ke dalam senarai "Persekutuan Tanah Melayu".

Harus diingat bahawa model pembentukkan Persekutuan Malaysia pada tahun 1963 adalah berdasarkan kepada konsep United Kingdom (UK) atau yang lebih tepat lagi sama seperti pembentukkan Australia (Federalisme) dan BUKANNYA seperti United States of America (Unitary).

Sekali lagi, ingin saya tekannya disini bahawa Malaysia BUKAN sebuah negara sebaliknya adalah sebuah "Persekutuan" yang lahir pada 16 September 1963 dan BUKAN pada 31 Ogos 1957. Maka, dengan itu, tidak ada sebab untuk "Malaysia" merayakan Hari Merdeka kerana "Malaysia" tidak pernah dijajah. Yang hanya perlu diraihkan adalah Hari Kemerdekaan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu yang memfokuskan kepada Hari Peringatan pada 31 Ogos 1957 manakala Negara Sabah memfokuskan kepada Hari Memperingati Status Berkerajaan Sendiri yang merujuk kepada tarikh 31 Ogos 1963 dan untuk Negara Sarawak pada 22 Julai 1963.

Yang hanya pernah dijajah adalah "anggota-anggota" didalam Persekutuan Tanah Melayu dan "anggota-anggota" Persekutuan Malaysia sahaja. Selepas terbentuknya Persekutuan Malaysia, tidak pernah ada negara luar yang menjajah Persekutuan Malaysia.

Menjawab persoalan anda tentang mengapa bendera British masih digunakan pada waktu dan selepas 31 Ogos 1957. Ini adalah antara sebab-sebabnya;

Pertama, Bendera Colony of North Borneo diturunkan dan digantkan dengan Bendera Sabah pada 31 Ogos 1963.

Kedua, Istana hanya dikosongkan pada 15 September 1963 dan Bendera British diturunkan semasa pemergian Governor William Goode. Ini disebabkan Sabah telah mendapat status "Full Self-Government" pada 31 Ogos 1963, Governor William diberikan mandat menjadi wakil Queen Elizabeth II sehingga Malaysia ditubuhkan pada 16 September 1963.

Ketiga, Kabinet Kerajaan Sabah Pertama ditubuhkan pada 31 Ogos 1963 setelah mendapat status "Full Self-Government" (Partial Independence) yang mana Kerajaan British pada waktu itu masih mempunyai kuasa untuk mengawal Urusan Luar Negara dan Pertahanan.

Keempat, Konfrontasi masih ada kaitan dengan British sebab pertahanan Persekutuan Malaysia yang melibatkan Negara Sabah dan Negara Sarawak masih lemah dan tidak cukup jumlah tentera untuk pertahanan. British telah berjanji untuk memberikan bantuan ketenteraan kerana itu adalah sebahagian daripada tanggungjawab dan kewajipan mereka untuk mempertahankan bekas tanah-tanah jajahan mereka.

Pendekkan cerita, untuk mengetahui tentang kebenaran status Sabah sebagai sebuah negara ataupun tidak, pertama, anda perlu memilih definisi manakah yang ingin anda gunakan sebagai rujukan dan putuskan pada sudut pandangan politik manakah yang ingin anda wakili. Dengan berbuat demikian, anda akan mampu memberikan jawapan yang munasabah dan seterusnya mempertimbangkan tentang "kebenaran" artikel anda itu.

“Respect and Honour Sabah's Independence on 31st August - Dr. Jeffrey”


PRESS STATEMENT

Tuesday, 30 August 2016

Kota Kinabalu: “The Federal government and Malayan leaders should respect Sabah’s Independence on 31st August 1963 in the same way we, Borenons, respect Malaya’s Independence 59 years ago but not Malaysian Independence as there is no such thing as “Malaysian Independence”. They should also not force Borneons to accept Malaya’s independence as Malaysia’s independence” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, Bingkor Assembly in urging Sabahans and the Sabah government to honour and commemorate Sabah’s independence on 31st August.

History must be put factually in the correct perspective so that there is no confusion. Historical facts should be stated factually and there is no need to twist and turn the truth to suit any party.

It is a fact that the people of Sabah, through their Founding Fathers, demanded independence and be freed from colonialism as a prerequisite to accepting the Malaysia proposal.

It is also a fact that the North Borneo Legislative Council passed a unanimous resolution on 8th August 1963 to proceed to declare Sabah’s Independence on the 31st of August 1963 irrespective of Malaysia coming into being or not on that date. This imply that Sabah’s independence did not depend on Malaysia and certainly not through Malaysia which may have been the original intent of some.

It is also a fact that Sabah and the people of Sabah celebrated Sabah’s Independence called the “Sabah Day” on 31 August 1963.

Although, Sabah’s independence was for internal self-government at that point in time and without the powers of external defence and international affairs (still with the British), the meaning was the same as far as Sabahans were concerned. This was reflected in Sir William Goode, the last British Governor, statement on 31 August 1963:

..."Today is a historic day for Sabah. It marks the beginning of self-government and independence and the end of colonialism ..."

We must also not forget what Tunku Abdul Rahman said and assured Sabahans that Sabah would have “absolute independence in Malaysia” and “equal in status to Malaya, Sarawak and Singapore”.

It is high time for the Federal and Sabah governments to put things right. Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak are equal partners in the formation of the Federation of Malaysia and the Borneo States are not subservient to Malaya.

In particular, the Sabah government should honour and celebrate Sabah’s Independence every year to mark the historic day. It should also be declared a Sabah public holiday to mark its importance like what the Sarawak government has done this year to mark Sarawak Day on 22 July as its Independence Day.

Sabah and Sarawak should also consider becoming members of the British Commonwealth. In the sporting world, they should get direct affiliation to world sporting bodies like FIFA to participate in the World Cup and the IOC for the Olympics. If Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom can enjoy the same status, there is no reason why Sabah and Sarawak cannot enjoy a similar status.

Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan

S4S says don’t confuse Merdeka Day with Malaysia Day

Only Sept 16 can qualify as National Day, as Malaysia did not exist on Aug 31, says Sarawak 4 Sarawakians.

KUCHING: Sarawak 4 Sarawakians (S4S) wants to know why Malaya’s Merdeka continues to be portrayed as the primary celebration even in Sarawak.

It cautioned against passing off Malaya’s Merdeka Day on Aug 31 as National Day for Malaysia.

“Only Sept 16 can qualify as National Day. Malaysia did not exist on Aug 31,” its chairman, Peter John Jaban, said.

Jaban said in a statement: “The Jalur Gemilang of Malaysia must not be used to celebrate Malaya’s Merdeka on Aug 31. The Jalur Gemilang is for Malaysia Day on Sept 16.”

Aug 31, he said, had no significance for the people of Sarawak, adding: “Our history must not be based on collective amnesia.”

S4S wants an end to the misinformation on Aug 31 and its place in history.

Jaban said: “There must be greater prominence nationwide on Sept 16 or 916.

“There must be an accurate portrayal of the history of the nation in schools. Malaysia, born on 16 September 1963, is not 59 years old as the signs at airports and everywhere else claim.”

Ever since Sept 16 was declared a public holiday after nearly five decades had passed, the centre of celebrations had always alternated between Sabah and Sarawak, noted Jaban.

“Do the authorities in Kuala Lumpur have something to hide? Why isn’t Malaysia Day hosted in Malaya?”

In fact, he added in a little digression, Aug 31 is the day Malaya joined the Commonwealth of Nations. “Malaya became independent on July 31 when the UK Parliament passed the Independence of Malaya Act 1957.”

He hastened to add, however, that the people of Sabah and Sarawak would be happy to celebrate Malaya’s Merdeka.

In return, he called for the people on the other side of the South China Sea to celebrate Sarawak’s Independence Day on July 22 and Sabah’s Independence Day on Aug 31.

“They should also agree to host Malaysia Day, 916, in rotation with the two Borneo nations,” said Jaban.

Nadira Ilana of Sabah's view of the formation of Malaysia

I'm suppose to be preparing my artist talk but i got distracted by FB and saw this great summary post by Nadira Ilana of Sabah's view of the formation of Malaysia. It is so worth sharing. I have a couple of things to add which will be at the end of this post by Nadira..

"When Tunku Abdul Rahman came to North Borneo in 1961, he was surprised to find that there were no Malays and didn't know how to talk to the natives. At first the Malaysia proposal was rejected but the urban Dusuns later supported it, causing a split that formed the splinter between Kadazans and Dusuns.

Lee Kuan Yew was critical in convincing the natives to join Malaysia. The 20 Point Agreement was formed following the Cobbold Commission because the North Borneans were worried that the Malayans who were better educated, racially segregated and pro-Melayu would convert us into Islam, take our government jobs and replace the British as our colonisers.

Malaysia was formed under the pretence of an equal partnership between Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak and Singapore. Today, Sabah Sarawak are considered 'states' and many peninsular Malaysians still can't tell the two apart though if not for Sabah Sarawak, there would be no Malaysia.
Coming from a pagan culture that believed in oath stones, the 20 Point Agreement in the modern world, proved to be ineffective as it was merely a gentleman's agreement with no locus standi. A majority of the promises for goodwill between Malaya and North Borneo would soon be broken.

16 September 1963, Donald Stephens chanted Merdeka at Padang Merdeka four times. Three times less than Tunku Abdul Rahman. Malaysia Day would have fallen on 31 August if not for protest from Indonesia and the Philippines.

In December 1964, barely two years after his appointment, Donald Stephens was removed as Chief Minister of Sabah for wanting to review the Malaysian Agreement because Singapore was being asked to leave. Sabah's founding father and first Huguan Siou was unceremoniously replaced with Datuk Peter Lo and he was later appointed as the Federal Minister of Sabah Affairs.

1967 saw the reign of USNO and the introduction of the most controversial figure in Sabah history yet. Tun Mustapha bin Harun was a Bajau-Suluk politician who had risen with Donald Stephens during the Merdeka talks. Transitioning from British colonisation into modern politics, he had initially accepted the TYT Governor role instead of Chief Minister because he thought that it would be more powerful.

Tun Mustapha was well liked by the federal government because he was a Muslim and they saw him as their brethren who could represent Sabah despite Muslims being a minority of 38% at the time. The Dusuns then, who were mostly Christian spoke a different language and were seen as too difficult to manipulate by the Malays.

The USNO era was harrowing for the indigenous majority of Sabah. Kadazan vernacular schools were denied. Bahasa Melayu was taught in schools instead and for a time, indigenous languages were banned from the radio. Mass Islamisation took place among the illiterate natives and some 75,000 were converted. Priests were extradited and in Tambunan, some were hidden in the jungles by villagers. Non-Muslims were being discriminated against.

In 1976, despite point 1 of the 20 Point Agreement, Sabah's official religion became Islam. We were meant to be a secular state.

The federal government went on to use Tun Mustapha's Bajau-Suluk connections to foster relations with the Moros and when the civil dispute between Mindanao and the Philippines erupted over the Moros' refusal to attack and conquer Sabah, Tunku Abdul Rahman had plans to take Mindanao as a Malaysian territory as they were Muslim as well. From the support from the Malaysian government came the birth of the Moro National Liberation Front and Sabah opened its doors for the first time to tens and thousands of Sulu refugees in the 70s.

Lavish spending and a playboy lifestyle nearly led to the bankruptcy of Sabah. The federal government was becoming increasingly impatient with Tun Mustapha and engineered his removal through Harris Salleh with the first Barisan Nasional government in Sabah, Berjaya.

Harris approached Donald Stephens who had converted and was now TYT Governor Tun Fuad Stephens, to step down and run as Chief Minister. The federal government was pushing for the Petroleum Agreement, which Tun Mustapha had refused and Tun Fuad was not about to budge either.
Berjaya succeeded and Tun Fuad Stephens was reinstated as Chief Minister in April 1976. 53 days later, 6 June 1976, he died in an incident that Sabahans remember as the Double Six Tragedy, killing 11 of Sabah's illustrious leaders. 14 June, the Petroleum Development Act 1976 was signed by his successor, Harris Salleh, surrendering 95% of Sabah's oil royalties. Labuan, Harris' birthplace was given away as a federal territory for free.

That's the story of Sabah's Bapa Merdeka and Malaya's Bapa Merdeka's contributions to Sabah and we all lived happily ever after. Amin."

My comments:

For Peninsula Malaysians who are sincere in understanding the formation of Malaysia and the troubled relationship East Malaysia has with the West, see James Ongkili's book "The Borneo Response to Malaysia:1961-1963" published in 1967. James Ongkili is Maximus Ongkili's big brother. Max Ongkili is currently the Federal Minister for Energy, Green Tech and Water.

This book helps explain much of the thinking of the times in Borneo. It also illuminates why Brunei decided to pull out of Malaysia. Essentially they found Tunku Abdul Rahman and his staff incredibly rude and condescending and immediately saw the problems related to Malay superioity complex and projected that they would be marginalized in a partnership with Malaya. Tunku Abdul Rahman, the great hero of Malaya was not at all popular in Borneo and was considered very arrogant. It was Lee Kuan Yew who won over the Borneans.

Look into the expulsion of Singapore. Although Sabah and Sarawak believed they were equal partners with Malaya and Singapore as a territorial signatory to the formation of Malaysia, the expulsion of Singapore was done completely in secret between Malaya and Singapore and Sabah and Sarawak were not informed of any of this. Lee Kuan Yew made a public radio address in the morning of August 9th 1965 that Singapore would be pulling out of the Malaysia Agreement. The Parliamentary sitting was later that day - AFTER this radio announcement which pre-empted the emergency parliamentary sitting - held in Kuala Lumpur. It was already a done deal. Sabah and Sarawak were not privy to any of it.

After the expulsion of Singapore. Sabah and Sarawak both wanted to pull out of Malaysia as well. Look into the history of poor ol' Stephen Kalong Ningkan the first chief minister of Sarawak. UMNO exerted its federal powers through their influence in Sarawak and Stephen Kalong Ningkan was removed from power despite being democratically elected by Sarawakian people. The expulsion of Singapore on 9th August 1965 was the beginning of the disenfranchisement of Sabah and Sarawak politics and the disregard of the Malaysia Agreement 1963.

It is this 1963 Malaysia Agreement that is in contention now. Sarawakians especially want the country to be re-aligned back to the agreements made on the formation of Malaysia. They just want what was agreed to - when they gave up dreams of their independence for this new country called Malaysia. Current news regards Petronas in Sarawak is related to this and for Borneoisation which was part of the original Malaysia Agreement.

The ignorance coming from KL to this day can make me feel ill.

Dont be an ignorant arse, learn Bornean political history.

None of this will ever 'go away'. Malaysia will be an unsettled country till all this is addressed. 'Merdeka' almost seems juvenile a shout when you understands the actualities of this country.

Ok i gotta go, got work to do.

Stop celebrating ‘Hari Merdeka Malaysia’

In August every year, the date Malaysia became ‘Merdeka’ will become a debating point. It bothers many as well, when the term ‘Hari Kemerdekaan’ is used to signify Malaysia’s independence.

Some say Aug 31 is the Independence Day, while others argue that it should be Sept 16.

For the record, whether it is Aug 31 or Sept 16, it is factually and historically wrong to say “Malaysia gained independence”.

You cannot receive independence if you were never colonised. And since Malaysia was never colonised, it is impossible for Malaysia to “receive independence”.

Malaysia was never colonised, it was born as a new federation formed by three entities after these three entities received independence separately.

The entities that received independence were Malaya (Aug 31,1957), Sarawak (July 22, 1963) and Sabah (Aug 31, 1963).

Countries like the Philippines or Indonesia who are a single entity have their independence day because when the Spanish and Dutch arrived, they ruled the country as a single entity. When they left, the country remained as it is, until today. There were no changes or mergers with other entities. Philippines is still Philippines and Indonesia remains as Indonesia.

The British meanwhile, did not colonise Malaysia. They colonised Malaya, they colonised Sarawak and they colonised Sabah, separately. And only after these three entities received independence separately, they came together to form Malaysia.

To understand Malaysia in a different perspective, think of Malaysia as the United Kingdom (UK).

UK only happened after sovereign nations namely England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the other Islands came together. Only later on Ireland opted out, and the Northern part of Ireland preferred to stay on as part of the UK, but that is a different story.

Similarly, Malaysia came into existence only after Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak and Sabah as a sovereign nation came together. Singapore then opted out, leaving Malaya, Sarawak and Sabah as part of the Federation of Malaysia.

So, we should stop using the word ‘Independence Day’ when it comes to Malaysia. The term ‘independence’ is only applicable to the respective regions - specifically Malaya, Sarawak and Sabah.

Malaysia as a whole, can only celebrate Malaysia Day on Sept 16. For the ‘independence’ part, Malaya, Sarawak and Sabah should be celebrating it individually on Aug 31, July 22 and Aug 31.

As a united nation, we should also be more focused on Malaysia Day which falls on Sept 16.

For more than 50 odd years, national scale celebrations fell on Aug 31. This means many Malaysians do not even know the history of the formation of Malaysia.

Errors only recently rectified

It was only as recently as 2010, that these errors were rectified. Even then, it was a hesitant and reluctant one.

In September 2009, Anwar Ibrahim proposed to the five Pakatan Rakyat parties to declare Sept 16 as a public holiday to mark Malaysia Day. It was received with a lukewarm response, and his political rivals even accused him of distorting historical facts. A year later on in 2010, the prime minister announced Sept 16 as a public holiday.

Today, both Aug 31 and Sept 16 are public holidays, but the scale of celebrations on Sept 16 is still very much lesser than celebrations on Aug 31.

While public holidays are a norm to mark an occasion, this should not be the end goal. The significance of patriotism goes beyond a public holiday, and it should be incorporated rightly in the Sejarah textbooks. The weight of emphasis should also be proportionate.

The independence of Malaya and Sabah should be celebrated on Aug 31, the independence of Sarawak should be celebrated on July 22, and most importantly the greatest emphasis should be Malaysia Day on Sept 16.

As of now, greater significance is still given to Aug 31. There are efforts to increase the significance of Sept 16, but unfortunately these are done mostly by the private sectors, or individual groups.

Instead of celebrating independence, we as a nation should actually be celebrating the formation of Malaysia of Sept 16, and not ‘Malaysia’s independence’ on Aug 31.

Mengapa 31 Ogos Perlu Diboikot Oleh Bangsa Negara Sabah dan Sarawak?

Ada sebab kenapa 31 Ogos 1957 dijadikan Tarikh Kemerdekaan Malaysia. Kerana itu adalah tarikh kemerdekaan Malaya. Kerana sudah tertulis di dalam Perlembagaan Malaysia 1976 bahawa Sabah dan Sarawak adalah sebahagian daripada negeri-negeri dalam Malaysia. Dan Malaysia adalah Malaya. Pada pendapat Malaya, mereka betul. Berdasarkan fakta sejarah Malaya, mereka betul.

Malaysia adalah Malaya.

Ada sebab kenapa rakyat Sabah dan Sarawak wajib tidak boleh mengiktirafkan 31 Ogos 1957 sebagai Tarikh Kemerdekaan Malaysia.

Kerana... apa menda kemerdekaan Malaysia bermula dari tahun 1957 kalau nama Malaysia hanya ujud pada tahun 1963? Satu sahaja caranya 31 Ogos 1957 boleh menjadi Tarikh Kemerdekaan Malaysia. Caranya ialah Sabah dan Sarawak menjadi sebahagian daripada negeri-negeri dalam Malaya untuk meraikan kemerdekaan Malaya. 

Malaysia adalah Malaya.

Cara seterusnya ialah, SabahSarawak mesti bersetuju Malaysia hanya lah nama baru bagi Malaya. Bersetuju setiap tahun. Bersetuju dengan suara lantang sambil mengibarkan Jalur Gemilang Malaya. Sambil mulut berbuih melafazkan Merdeka!

Malaysia adalah Malaya.

Kalau ada rakyat SabahSarawak meraikan 31 Ogos 1957 sebagai Hari Kemerdekaan Malaysia maka tanpa awak sedari awak sudah memberi tanda bersetuju bahwa Malaysia adalah Malaya. Tandanya awak sebagai rakyat Sabah dan Sarawak sudah buat salah. Awak benar di mata Perlembagaan Malaya tapi di mata Perlembagaan Malaysia awak salah.

Kerana sudah termaktub di dalam Perlembagaan Malaysia 1963 bahawa Sabah dan Sarawak bukan lah sebahagian daripada negeri-negeri dalam Malaya.

Perkara ini tidak boleh disangkal lagi. Pada pendapat Borneo, kita betul. Berdasarkan fakta sejarah Borneo, kita betul. Merujuk kepada Malaysia Agreement 1963, kita adalah betul, sebetul-betulnya betul tiada lagi yang lebih betul daripada itu.

Malaysia bukan Malaya.

Malaysia Agreement adalah warkah perundangan teragung dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan Malaysia dari tahun 1963 sehingga kini. Tiada Malaysia Agreement maka tiada lah Malaysia. 

Malaysia bukan Malaya.

Perlembagaan tahun 1976 pula hanya lah PINDAAN. Pindaan berat sebelah yang dibuat oleh Malaya, dipersetujui oleh Malaya dan diluluskan oleh Malaya dengan kuasa dua pertiga Parlimen. Dan kalau diletakkan bersebelahan dengan Malaysia Agreement 1963 maka Pindaan 1976 adalah tidak sah.

Malaysia bukan Malaya.

Memang benar Perlembagaan Malaysia adalah terbentuk berpandukan Perlembagaan Malaya. Tetapi ia tidak bermakna Malaysia adalah Malaya. Kerana dalam Perlembagaan Malaysia ada Malaysia Agreement yang memberi garis panduan bahawa Sabah dan Sarawak tidak perlu patuh pada Perlembagaan Malaya. SabahSarawak patuh pada Malaysia, bukan patuh pada Malaya.

Malaysia sama sekali bukan Malaya.

Malaysia Agreement masih hidup lagi dalam Persekutuan Malaysia, masih berjuang menentang asakan bertubi-tubi Perlembagaan Malaya yang mahu menjajah. Rakyat SabahSarawak pula yang kelihatan mudah mahu mengalah.

Kalau awak masih juga mahu meraikan 31 Ogos 1957 sebagai Tarikh Kemerdekaan Malaysia maka tidak salah kalau kami katakan awak adalah rakyat Malaya bukan rakyat Persekutuan Malaysia. 

Awak rakyat Malaya Pindaan 1976. Kami rakyat Malaysia yang Ori 1963. Dan kami rakyat Malaysia Ori masih memperjuangkan Malaysia Agreement. Dulu kini dan selamanya. Kerana kami sayang pada Persekutuan Malaysia. Perjuangan kami murni. Kami mahu bebaskan Persekutuan Malaysia dari cengkaman Malaya. Selepas kami berjaya baru lah mulut kami berbuih-buih melaungkan MERDEKA!



Tujuan Pembentukkan Malaysia Adalah Bertujuan Untuk Proses Dekolonisasi Untuk Negara Sarawak dan Negara Sabah

Tujuan pembentukan MALAYSIA ialah proses dekolonisasi untuk Sarawak dan Sabah dan seterusnya Sarawak dan Sabah akan MERDEKA.

MERDEKA di sini boleh dicapai dengan pelbagai cara. Contohnya;

1. Sarawak dan Sabah memilih (eg. Referendum, Pindaan Perlembagaan etc) untuk MERDEKA dan berdiri sendiri itu lah MERDEKA.

2. Sarawak dan Sabah memilih (eg. Referendum, Pindaan Perlembagaan etc) untuk kekal bersama Malaya di dalam Persekutuan MALAYSIA berdasarkan Perjanjian Malaysia 1963 itulah MERDEKA.

3. Sarawak dan Sabah memilih (eg. Referendum, Pindaan Perlembagaan etc) untuk kekal bersama Malaya di dalam Persekutuan MALAYSIA berdasarkan perjanjian baru itulah MERDEKA.

4. Sarawak dan Sabah memilih (eg. Referendum, Pindaan Perlembagaan etc) untuk "free association" dengan Malaya dengan pembentukan persekutuan atau unitary state etc itulah MERDEKA.

5. Sarawak dan Sabah memilih (eg. Referendum, Pindaan Perlembagaan etc) untuk membentuk Borneo Federation dan meluluskan Borneo Separation Agreement dengan Malaya, itulah MERDEKA.

6. Pelbagai cara lain etc etc

Pendek kata, MERDEKA boleh dicapai dengan pelbagai cara dan konsep atas KEHENDAK RAKYAT Sarawak dan Sabah. Sebab itu pembentukan MALAYSIA menggunakan Resolusi PBB 1541 yang FLEKSIBEL.

Faham, bisa.


Henti raikan ‘kemerdekaan’ Malaysia pada 31 Ogos

Meraikan Hari Kemerdekaan pada 31 Ogos adalah tidak betul kerana Malaysia tidak pernah dijajah atau dimerdekakan, sebaliknya Malaysia adalah Persekutuan baru yang dibentuk pada 16 September.

Oleh Dewitt Ferrer Motijun

Apabila tiba saja bulan Ogos pada setiap tahun, akan timbul persoalan tentang tarikh kemerdekaan Malaysia yang sebenar. Sesetengah pihak mendakwa Malaysia merdeka pada 31 Ogos, dan ada juga yang mempertikaikan tarikh tersebut dan mengatakan Malaysia sebenarnya hanya merdeka pada 16 September.

Harus diingat Malaya, Sabah dan Sarawak diperintah dan dikawal secara berbeza semasa zaman penjajahan British dan diberikan kemerdekaan secara berasingan. Persekutuan Malaya dimerdekakan British pada 31 Ogos 1957, manakala Sabah dimerdekakan pada 31 Ogos 1963. Sarawak pula mendapat kemerdekaan lebih awal daripada Sabah, iaitu pada 22 Julai 1963.

Fakta sejarah jelas menunjukkan Malaysia tidak pernah dijajah atau dimerdekakan kerana Malaysia adalah satu Persekutuan baru yang dibentuk bersama oleh Sabah, Sarawak, Singapura dan Malaya secara rasmi pada 16 September 1963 (Singapura meninggalkan Persekutuan Malaysia pada 1965). Persekutuan Malaysia dibentuk melalui Perjanjian Malaysia yang ditandatangani di London pada 9 Julai 1963.

Adalah jelas Malaysia sebagai satu Persekutuan baru hanya terbentuk pada 16 September 1963 dan bukannya 31 Ogos. Tidak ada “kemerdekaan” Malaysia yang harus diraikan pada setiap tahun kerana Malaysia dibentuk dan bukan dimerdekakan. Apa yang harus diraikan ialah Hari Malaysia pada 16 September.

Sekiranya kerajaan serius menyatukan rakyat dan membina satu Persekutuan bersatu dan stabil, kerajaan seharusnya memberi pengiktirafan yang lebih kepada tarikh 16 September dan berhenti meraikan “kemerdekaan” Malaysia pada 31 Ogos, sebaliknya hanya meraikan Hari Malaysia pada 16 September.

Penggunaan nama ‘Hari Kebangsaan’ sebagai panggilan rasmi perayaan dengan tidak menyebut bilangan ulang tahun sambutan tidak menyelesaikan isu ini, kerana yang menjadi persoalannya adalah tarikh 31 Ogos.

Meraikan Hari Kemerdekaan Malaysia pada 31 Ogos adalah tidak betul kerana Malaysia tidak pernah dijajah atau dimerdekakan, sebaliknya Malaysia adalah Persekutuan baru yang dibentuk pada 16 September.

Sabah dan Sarawak tidak menyertai Persekutuan Malaya, sebaliknya bersama Malaya dalam membentuk Persekutuan Malaysia. Kerajaan perlu membuat keputusan menyambut hari kemerdekaan di dalam konteks Pembentukan Malaysia pada 1963.

Rakyat Malaysia harus rajin membaca untuk mengetahui kebenaran fakta sejarah, terutamanya Perjanjian Malaysia yang membawa kepada penubuhan Persekutuan Malaysia. Sejarah sudah tertulis dan kita tidak boleh mengubahnya.

Lawyer questions how Malaysia can be 59

Priscilla Lau
SIBU: Displays and advertisements declaring that Malaysia will celebrate its 59th ‘ birthday’ have gotten lawyer Priscilla Lau perplexed.

She pointed out that Malaysia was only formed on Sept 16, 1963, making it 53 years old next month.
“Only Malaya is celebrating its 59 years of independence from Aug 31, 1957,” she stressed.

Lau said Sarawak just celebrated 53 years of independence on July 22, while Sabah, which gained independence on Aug 31, 1963, will celebrate its 53 years of independence on Wednesday.

“Aug 31, therefore, has no significance for us Sarawakians,” she said.

She reiterated that referring to Aug 31 as Malaysia’s Independence Day is inappropriate as there was no such thing as Malaysia’s independence.

Lau said her intention of bringing up the matter is to educate rather than criticise.

“An attitude of acceptance of a wrong will never right a matter. We must seek to right a wrong matter in every possible way so that our generations will not be ignorant of our history,” she said.

“History has already been written. We cannot seek to rewrite history through our ignorance of the truth.”

SECESSION WARNING: JOHOR WILL LEAVE M'SIA IF NAJIB CONTINUES TO MUCK UP THE COUNTRY

“The biggest idol of my life – besides my father – is Fidel Castro. He may be a communist, but I respect the fact that he stood for the principles he believed in” – TMJ

Tunku Ismail ibni Sultan Ibrahim has a certain cut of confidence in him. Some say it stems from his royal stature. Some others suggest that he’s naturally arrogant. But isn’t that what they always say about anyone with untempered and radical ideas? Most Malaysians grow up in an environment where there was a generational hatred towards local football – and they all stemmed from our consistent failures on the biggest stage. And yes, match-fixing (No, I didn’t forget that). If not hatred, it’s skepticism. It’s part of our identity to continuously shed skeptic comments or thoughts on our own products.

And you can’t blame the fans either. For a country that only got its’ independence in 1957, we’re still trying to define an identity for ourselves. The lack of identity always meant that while great emphasis would be placed on the pursuit of success, mediocrity would latch onto it and become normalized as well, be it in studies, sports or even politics for that matter.

But then came Tunku, who literally grabbed Johor FA by its throat, and shoved significant reforms down. Three years later, a team that once had less than 100 people attend its’ home games, is now the reigning Malaysia Super League champion for two consecutive years. And they recently made history by being the first Malaysian team to ever progress into the semis of the AFC Cup.

They’ve got the best pitch in Southeast Asia. The players have rave reviews about the sort of training facilities that are made available for them, including the anti-gravity treadmill! Everyone within the club’s structure, is treated well and their salaries are paid on time. And they’ve been able to sign some of the biggest names in world football (Dani Guiza and Pablo Aimar), notwithstanding the fact that they’ve got most of Malaysia’s best players in their squad.

They recently kickstarted a comprehensive youth development program, which is being tailored by individuals that have been brought in from Borussia Dortmund. Best part? Tunku is set to meet leaders to Barcelona and Paris St. Germain later this year, to initiate similar collaborations.

Who on earth is this guy, and how is he even doing this? Absolutely stupendous.

So when I was informed that my proposal for an interview with Tunku was approved, I was naturally elated. The general populace’s interpretation of him has generally been muddled, all this while. To some, particularly Johoreans, Tunku is a revolutionary saviour who is now the indubitable voice of the people. But to others, he’s just an attention-seeking member of the royal family, who is using sports as a direct mean to amass significant political capital and mobility. But Tunku’s brutal honesty was inadvertently refreshing.

“Johor isn’t just about football. It’s beyond that. It’s a tool for uniting people and bridging the gap of racism and segregation within society. So, I’m perfectly fine if people think I’m using JDT as a political tool, as that’s precisely what I’m doing. I’ve got nothing to hide,” he said, with a casual smirk on his face.

His radical statements and gung-ho approach didn’t go too well with senior politicians within the country, particularly those sitting in executive seats within Football Association of Malaysia. He’s too young, some would say, to blatantly shift the focus away from their own misgivings. It’s not surprising really, judging by our inability to muster respect for individuals, without taking their age into consideration. “Don’t judge me by my age, judge me for my qualification and the actual merit of my statements.”

Truth be told though, credibility shouldn’t even be at the forefront of this discussion. Tunku received his secondary education at the Australian International School in Singapore, before moving on to complete his tertiary education at the Hale School in Perth. But it didn’t just stop there. It was customary for the eldest son of the Johor royal family to receive military training, and Tunku was enlisted into the Indian Military Academy as a cadet officer. Just like every other regular newbie, Tunku has big reservations about his new life at that point.

“I was scared, definitely!,” he chuckled. “It was a family tradition, and I had to be a part of it, so eventually I came to terms with it. Because at some point, I will need to be in charge of the Johor Military Force (JMF) so I figured this training would prepare me adequately for that responsibility.”

He became a captain in 2007 and eventually emerged as the first foreigner to spearhead a unit of the Indian Army during India’s Republic Day Parade, in front of President Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam as well as Russia’s Vladimir Putin – a history moment that was also witnessed by his proud father, Sultan Ibrahim, who flew in to India specifically for this event. The entire experience of military life in India, turned him into the revisionist individual he is today.

In fact, he brought that exact revisionist attitude alongside him, as he embarked on a journey to revitalize Johor football. At the end of 2012, Tunku took over Johor FA and went on a cleansing spree, completely changing the staff and personnel that existed within the organization. No holds were barred, it was ruthless change from the get go. There was however, a unique bit of novelty, behind his uncompromising approach.

“I used to know someone in the Johor FA, who would frequently drop by to watch my Polo sessions, and he’d always ask me to step in and takeover the organization. He used to do it so often, claiming that corruption is ruining football in the state. At that point in my life, I was looking to step up and bring tangible changes for the people of my land, so I went to watch one of the MSL games involving Johor FA at the Pasir Gudang Stadium. There was barely anyone there, and I thought to myself, what’s going on? Because the Johor I remember watching with my family in the 90s, had a lot more support.

“That night, I told myself that I was going to change the face of Johor football. The next day, I had a meeting with the Johor FA people and I told every single one of them to clear the office and leave. It needed a fresh start and I wasn’t going to let corrupted individuals halt it.”

First thing he did upon taking charge was unifying the various clubs under JFA (Johor FA, Johor FC, MP Muar) and producing a singular identity for the state – Johor Darul Ta’azim, also known as JDT. A marketing division was established, and focus was shifted on revamping the squad. His involvement attracted a myriad of sponsors and investors, which then allowed JDT to compete for the best players within the country. The term ‘Malaysian money bags’ was coined for JDT as they rampaged through nationwide hunt, signing the likes of Safiq Rahim, Safee Sali and even Dani Guiza – which effectively sent shockwaves around the country as JDT flexed its’ financial muscle for the inaugural time.

They were also smart enough to know that success was never going to be short-term, and they barely had any tangible target for 2013, though JDT did eventually reach the FA Cup final, before narrowly losing to Kelantan 0-1. The Southern Tigers also finished third on the league table, with their causeway rival LionsXII sealing the title. That very year, the JOHOR Southern Tigers page on Facebook, uploaded a graphic featuring a quote from Tunku himself: “2013 was practice, 2014 will be warm-up and 2015 will be game time.” It was designed to send shivers down ever JDT fans’ spine. So what came in the aftermath of 2013, almost looked scripted. They went on to clinch the 2014 Malaysia Super League title, became Malaysia Cup finalists and marched into the semis of the FA Cup. Qualification into the AFC Cup was also secured – and to date, that was the sweetest success for the man himself.

“We’re into the semis of the AFC Cup this year and that’s incredible. But I won’t forget the moment we qualified for the AFC Cup last year. That was an important milestone in our long-term mission.

“When I first took over JDT, my goal was to create history. And history isn’t only created by winning trophies, it’s also by letting the world know of your existence, it’s also about having world-class facilities and being a world-class organization. As much as we wanted to do well in Malaysia, AFC Cup was always the priority, because it’s continental and it’s the best way to measure yourself against better teams and better players.

But in the midst of all the groundbreaking transformation that JDT has gone through since 2012, the biggest change would be Tunku’s initiative of getting fans more involved with the club. He’s had regular dialogue sessions with various JDT fan clubs. And that’s something he’s not limiting to Johor DT alone. Prior to my appointment with him, Tunku held an open dialogue session at the Larkin Stadium with fans from across Malaysia dropping by to openly discuss ways in which the Football Association of Malaysia needs to buck up.

There was one notable moment which left a lasting impression on everyone. An hour or so into the dialogue, a representative of Ultras Malaya stood up asking for suggestions on alternative ways in which they can voice out their frustrations, after they were made to look like scapegoats in the aftermath of their ‘flare-throwing’ incident during Malaysia’s World Cup qualifying tie against Saudi Arabia last month. Tunku’s response was succinct but powerful: “Let me represent you. Let me represent every single one of you, and I’ll mediate and express all your concerns to them.” A mighty roar of applause drowned the media room, almost immediately.”

Did he genuinely mean what he uttered? Or was it merely a calculated statement with underlying political intentions? It didn’t matter really, because his barrage of factual and intellectual attacks towards FAM validated people’s trust in him. There’s a difference between rage and dissent – TMJ’s statements (in recent times, at least), personified the latter. But despite all of these, I still posed the controversial question to him. “Are you using FAM’s failures to get the people on your side?” Yet again, his brutal honesty prevailed.

“Some may say I’m doing it for the people. Yes, that’s partially true. But I’m also voicing out my opinion, because FAM have been making wrong decisions. Why would you appoint a national team coach that has a history of match-fixing? Why does FAM need up to 40% of the money that will be injected by MP & Silva next year? How can the FAM President suggest that he was not part of the decision-making process, with regards to Dollah’s appointment last year?

“My decision to speak out, doesn’t need to be premised upon anyone, even if it is. I’m doing it because I feel it’s the right thing to do. Football doesn’t belong to FAM, it belongs to the affiliates and it belongs to the people. FAM is merely the governing body, nothing more, nothing less. So there needs to be a shift in their leadership.

“Who is going to take charge? I don’t know. People like Tan Sri Annuar Musa and I will always be biased to Kelantan and Johor respectively. Being FAM President would require one to be completely fair in their decision-making process, but I won’t be able to do that. Johor comes first for me, before Malaysia. Khairy Jamaluddin is probably the most suitable candidate, but I don’t think he’ll be keen on going back to FAM either.”

His biasness reflects in the progress that JDT have made over the last three years. They’ve never rested on their laurels – it’s been a relentless pursuit of success from Day One, as they left the rest of Malaysia behind. Today, few clubs in Malaysia can match the financial might of JDT, but barely any of them are as professionally run as JDT are. They have plans in place to send young talents over for training stints with some of Europe’s biggest teams. Construction of a new stadium and a new youth development academy is already in the pipelines. Every single milestone has been converted into a raging desire to continuously grow as a team. All the motivational lines and quotes, pasted across various walls at the Larkin Stadium, remains an impeccable testament to that. This is a man, who doesn’t have the intention of stopping anytime soon.

“In five to ten years from home, hopefully we can compete with Asia’s best. But there’s never a ceiling to this, is there? You can never really stop and say, we are now successful enough. The philosophy is always an ongoing chase, we must never get too comfortable. I’m always telling everyone around the club, the number one hindrance to growth, is laziness and comfort. The day JDT players and staff get comfortable with what they’ve achieved, that’s the day, the club dies.

“But I will not let that happen, and judging by how things are going I don’t think the fans would let that happen as well. In Johor, over the decades and centuries, we’ve always encouraged people to be united and committed to a cause. So politicians may instigate racist sentiments, but the people of Johor will always be racially united and that very unity will go on to become the backbone of this football club.”

Call for Sabah and Sarawak Rights!

The reasons why we should educate ourselves, our children and our future generations.

Everyone believes that, "if we, North Borneo state of Sabah and Sarawak ceased from the Formation of Malaysia that has being agreed in the Malaysia Agreement 1963, other country will take advantage on Sabah Sarawak and will caused a war". Because that's how the rumours being spread to the natives of North Borneo since our great great grandparents still alive. And since our great great grandparents are not well educated enough about laws and political studies during that time, it makes some group of people happy with our past generations lack of knowledge or education, and they are trying their best working on limiting our education and knowledge. 

We are too comfortable with ourselves, get entertained by gadgets high technology nowadays, and being served with various movies and reality TV show, which caused us irresponsibility towards our nation. We cannot continue living our life being selfishly, just try to improve our own selves, and just think about how to pay our bills, and how to refills our kitchen pantry's food stocks. We are responsible for our future generations. The people of North Borneo Sabah Sarawak need to have at least basic Law Studies to avoid others to take advantage on us, especially when it comes to our rights. 

How Malaysia being Form in 1963, where it is being agreed between the Malaya, Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak is trough International Law. And since the Malaysia Agreement 1963 being violated, all the 20 Points Of Agreements never being fulfil for more than 52 years, the "Equal Agreement" that never happened is Void. From the International Law we followed the procedures to form Malaysia, and from International Law shall we follow the procedures to ceased and claims our rights. 

Sabah Sarawak Union - United Kingdom 

(SSU-UK) registered and recognised internationally, founded by Doris Jones, to fight for North Borneo Sabah Sarawak rights through United Nation, and get the British government to review the validation of Malaysia Agreement 1963. During the process of collecting the 300,000 sign petition in Sabah , some volunteers being caught by the police in Tuaran and Lahad Datu district under the Sedition Act 1948. Federation of Malaysia being Form in 1963, which is means that the Sedition Act is never valid for it is only being use and recognised during the British colonial in Malaya before Malaya gain their independence on 31 August 1957. This kind of disruption caused by the Malaysian government's ordered to stop the petition being collected from the people's voice, can be accused under the Human Rights Act in International Law. There are few more disruption try to stop SSU-UK activities, such as the group named by SSBKM (Sabah Sarawak Bantah Keluar Malaysia). This kind of unauthorised group also can be accused under the Human Rights Act, for trying to stop the people of North Borneo to fight for their rights. 

The Malaysian government should be careful in any wrongdoing action that they may caused to stop the people of Sabah Sarawak especially the natives trying to get their justice. The Malaya who violating the MA63 Agreement, and acting like colonising Sabah and Sarawak for their benefits get the attention of other commonwealth countries, especially the safety and security of Sabah Sarawak, where the people being threatened by the statement "the Sulu might attacks Sabah Sarawak if the people demand to ceased". And ever since we trying to fight for our rights, the kidnapping issues caused by the Sulu seems have not comes to end. In our history, Australia came to North Borneo Sabah and Sarawak in 1940's to help the people and fight with the Japanese attacks during the 2nd World War. If the Malaya put North Borneo Sabah and Sarawak in vulnerable and defenceless in any situation during Sabah Sarawak under the the governance of Malaysia, or after Sabah Sarawak succeeded to ceased from Malaysia through United Nation by following International Law procedures, Australia will never let it to come arise, just like how they support Sabah and Sarawak during the attacks of the Japanese in the history. If any bodied who against the people of Sabah Sarawak try to claim Humans Rights, and questioning the involvement of Australia, the answer is, 

"It is the legitimate authorities that will take place for the safety of North Borneo Sabah Sarawak since we followed the International Law procedures, and it is the same procedures being followed by the Singapore when they ceased from the Formation of Malaysia in 1965. Military support for Sabah Sarawak will be set for few years for the border, security and safety of North Borneo, before they can manage to incorporate and possess their own Armies." And for Malaya, please don't forget the history where the Malaya also getting military support from Australia during the 2nd World War, attacked by the Japan and took thousands of Australians armie's life, Lest We Forget!

The world are aware with what is happening in North Borneo Sabah Sarawak nowadays. And most of the people around the world believes that Sabah Sarawak should get justice from the violated Malaysia Agreement 1963 for more than 52 years of Discrimination and Prosecution under the governance of Malaya. But most of the natives people in Sabah Sarawak are afraid to claim their rights because we have been brainwashed for more than 52 years, most people not knowing the procedures how to claim our rights through a proper channel using International Law and through United Nation. Fighting within Malaysia caused the person threatened by the government for the Malaysian Law mostly will backups and protect the government. 

We, the people of North Borneo Sabah Sarawak have the rights to accused the Malaysia government for violated the Malaysia Agreement 1963, like how the Singapore suing the Malaysia government in the High Court in Singapore under the provisions of the Government Proceedings Ordinance, 1956, of Malaya as extended to Singapore by the Modification of Laws (Government Proceedings and Public Authorities Protection) (Extension and Modification) order, 1965.

How can the leaders of Sabah Sarawak allowed the Malaysia government to Modified the Laws that being agreed in Malaysia Agreement 1963? We need to educate the people of North Borneo Sabah Sarawak and our children, for knowing what is happening because this is effecting our future. We are not slaves and we are not supposed to be colonised, again. We have many educated leaders in Sabah and Sarawak, yet it takes courage to fight and claims our rights, against the discrimination and prosecution tortured by the Malaysia government towards the natives of Sabah Sarawak. 

For the Malaysia government never wish an intelligent born in North Borneo Sabah Sarawak who can fight for our rights, just educate our children anyway, for we should never live in a lie.

If you understand and know how the Malaysia government breaching the Contract for more than 52 years, and you as the natives and the real citizens of North Borneo Sabah Sarawak believes that you should have Humans Rights, we should stand up together, because people from another country believes that we should get our justice. We should stop the unlawful caused by the Malaysia government, and get our justice from the International Law.


Sign the petition today, before it is too late for our children to change in the future, the possibility of changing the future that we should responsible to take action today, from our past mistakes.
