Jeffrey ‘proven right’ on ‘enemy in the state’

The Navy and EssCom echo Jeffrey’s stand on the “enemy within” but warn the problem has become complex.

KOTA KINABALU: Bingkor assemblyman Jeffrey Kitingan has taken heart from recent statements by the Eastern Sabah Security Command (EssCom) and the Navy conceding that “the enemy was within the state”. “However, the illegal immigrants from the Philippines are not the only enemy within.”

Coastguard Officer First Admiral M. Karunanithi, for one, has warned that the problem of illegal immigrants in the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (EssZone) has become “complex” and would require careful planning and the participation of all stakeholders over a period of time, more than two years, to see some results.

EssCom Chief of Staff (Special Investigation and Technical) SAC Rosli Mohd Isa has warned that “the enemy is within the state”, specifically in EssZone which was declared after the intrusion in Lahad Datu two years ago by Sulu terrorists.

These enemies, which Rosli referred to as “moles”, were everywhere among the illegal immigrants especially in the EssZone. He didn’t provide any figures but it has been estimated in the past, in 2010, that there are some 1.7 million foreigners in Sabah including illegal immigrants as against 1.5 million locals.

One statement by EssCom, noted Jeffrey, has it calling for the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission’s (MACC) involvement in the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (EssZone) to “check on corruption and the lack of integrity among civil servants and security forces”.

Jeffrey noted that EssCom has set a target of deporting 200,000 illegal immigrants from EssZone. “This may be a start, although the number of foreigners including illegal immigrants is in the region of 1.7 million people. There are also indications that the security problems elsewhere have become more serious.”

“The seriousness of the security situation can be gauged from internal and external developments.”

Internally, added Jeffrey, the authorities have increased the number of security personnel by another battalion. “The continuing incidents of cross-border kidnappings including that of security personnel for ransom, and the thwarting of at least six kidnapping attempts, and EssCom issuing regular statements calling for co-operation and feedback are other indications of increased security threats.”

Externally, continued Jeffrey, Sabah was suffering from three threats viz. the export of Umno’s brand of race and religion-driven politics, for one, which threaten the peace and harmony in a state of many multis – race, religion, and culture.

Secondly, the issuance of dubious ICs to illegal immigrants in Sabah, masterminded from Putrajaya. “This is a time bomb as confirmed by EssCom.”

Thirdly, the Federal Government having realised that the Filipino illegal immigrants in Sabah have become a time-bomb, has chosen to create another time-bomb as a balance of terror i.e. the issuance of ICs to Indonesians, especially Bugis.

“The Filipinos in Sabah are becoming increasingly restive over their perception that the Federal Government was favouring the Indonesians at their expense,” said Jeffrey. “It’s anybody’s guess what will happen in the future if the Filipinos and Indonesians go for each other’s throats.”

Putrajaya’s ‘time bombs’ bigger threat than separatists, says Jeffrey Kitingan

The security of Sabah looks bleak in the long term as the current threats from “outside and within” are supplanted by “three additional time bombs planted by Putrajaya and Umno”, says Sabah State Reform Party (STAR) chairman Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan.

He said the “time bombs” that Putrajaya and Umno “knowingly, unknowingly or unwittingly” planted, pose a far greater threat to the security of the state than that posed by the separatists from the nationalist group Sabah-Sarawak Keluar Malaysia (SSKM).

He said it could even trigger the break-up of Malaysia.

“The export of Umno’s brand of race and religion and religious extremism and fanaticism is fanning Islamic militarism as seen from arrests of Isis (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) militants including from Sabah,” Kitingan said in response to the statement by Eastern Sabah Security Command's (Esscom) deputy director of intelligence ACP Hashim Justin on the two new threats faced by the command.
Kitingan said the export of Umno's brand of religion not only threatened the peace and harmony of multi-ethnic and multi-religious Sabah but was also fanning Isis fanaticism.

He said recent events in the peninsula showed “a growing talibanisation or misconceived arabisation as former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad puts it”.

“Now, it may be a sarong dress code and objections to music concerts.

“In time to come, the dress code for women will not be tudung or veil but mandatory burqa and the banning of all non-Islamic music and barring of women to travel unaccompanied by another male relative.”

With the demographic landscape of the state doctored to turn Sabah into a Muslim-majority state, the number of Muslim lawmakers in the state legislative assembly and growing support from hardline PAS, there is no guarantee that hudud will not be implemented in Sabah, Kitingan said.

The “second time-bomb”, he said, was planted “decades ago with the issuance of dubious ICs and MyKads to foreigners, especially from southern Philippines”.

“This time-bomb is confirmed by the recent Esscom statements and actions.

“It is now deadly and going to explode at any time aided by corruption and lack of integrity of civil servants and security personnel,” said Kitingan.

He said with the Malaysia-sponsored Bangsamoro Peace Framework in Mindanao, southern Philippines, “there is no stopping Malaysians of Filipino descent agreeing in the longer term to team up and take Sabah out to form part of the Bangsamoro homeland”.

He described the third time bomb as Putrajaya’s issuance of citizenships to Indonesians, especially the Bugis, to counter the numbers of Filipino descent population.

“With the growing regional nationalism, there is no guarantee that the Bugis, both imported into Sabah and in Indonesia, will not carve out part of Sabah to join up with their brethren in Sulawesi.

“This can be seen by our own prime minister, who despite being generations as Malaysians had openly acknowledged his Bugis warrior bloodline,”

Kitingan said the favouritism shown by Putrajaya for Indonesians over the Filipinos made the latter uneasy.

“How will things turn out in Sabah and Malaysia is as good as anyone’s guess,” he said.

With Sabah being the golden goose to Putrajaya given the huge reserve in oil and gas, the state, he added, is a prize worth fighting for. – July 1, 2015.

BREAK FREE FROM MALAYAN MENTAL COLONISATION!

Some Sarawakian remain too attached to anything Malayan that they prefer to be reliant to Malaya/Malaysia, both politically and psychologically

THE MALAYANS ARE ALMOST DONE WITH THE COLONISATION OF SARAWAK!

And not only politically and physically, but also mentally, and the bad news is, some Sarawakians seem to be letting themselves to be colonised volunterily.

The figures are still high now, but it is very fortunate a lartge number of Sarawakians had became aware about this, and chose to break free from Malayan 'chains'.

There are so many Sarawakians who still prefer to be subordinates to Malaya, even considering themselves hardcore and loyal Malaysians, when Sarawak had been treated unfairly over the last half a century, and the Sarawak rights under the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), without which 'Malaysia' would never existed, had been breached and broken.

It seems they are very much ready to be 'slaves' owned by Malaysia, not as an equal partners as stipulated in MA63. The Malayans had somehow succeded to make them (the Sarawakians) to believe that to survive, they would have to continue to be dependent on the Malayans.

But as fellow Sarawakians, we cannot blame them, as the Malayan propaganda machine had worked wonders over them to make those poor Sarawakians believing that the Malayans want them to believe and not the truth, and even to make things worse, the Malayans had ruled with a cruel fist (ISA, Sedition Act 1948) to force them to believe.

All we can do now is, to help convince these fellow Sarawakians to break free from the Malayan mental colonisation, no longer be dependent on Malaya/Malaysia, and to think about independence for Sarawak.

How are we going to do that? Firsthandly, we need to understand why some Sarawakians are very dependent on Malaya/Malaysia, and how those Sarawakians are somehow 'addicted' to Malaya.

After more than half  a century being a part of the Federation of Malaysia, some Sarawakians had in some way absorbed 'Malaysia' and 'Malaya' as part of their lives, despite of the apparent unfair treatments given to Sarawak, until they may not be able to be dependent from Malaya, and from there on, able to make decisions on their own.

Those Sarawakians are being very dependent on Malaysia and Malaya, and most preferring to keep on to live inside their 'comfort zones', and will not want to bother for a massive change, that is ultimate independence. But how will Sarawak be independent if the greater part of Sarawakians are being very dependent on both Malaya and Malaysia? 

In a sense, those Sarawakians are 'addicted' to Malaya and Malaysia, and they are one way or another not free in making decisions, in fear of losing so much should they become liberated from Malaya. 

Usually, Sarawakians can be reliant economically, culturally, socially and personally to Malaya, and the reliance can only be overcame once the dependent individuals break free by being prepared to make sacrifices, as Malaya may have been making sure us Sarawakians to be dependent on it all through the years, and will go on to do so to keep us submitting to them.

How are Sarawakians being reliant on Malaya economically? Malayan jobs, either with Malayan companies or the Federal departments, make available livelihoods for a great number of Sarawakians. And sadly, due to his dependence, those Sarawakians may be indifferent to see Sarawak separated from Malaya.

Another characteristic that shows the dependency of some Sarawakians on Malaya is when it comes to goods and services. Those Sarawakians generally are too dependent on Malayan goods and services, even though there are in reality superior and cheaper local Sarawakian alternatives. Malayan propaganda over the years had represented Sarawakian goods as 'of poor qualities' and even 'hazardous'.

 Isn't there is a likelihood that there were hands during the last fifty years, in making sure we Sarawakians will continue to be dependent on Malaya? Isn't there a probability there were efforts to make certain the considerable economic disparities between Malaya and Sarawak?

Besides, the majority of Sarawakians are dependent on Malaya culturally. Sarawakians over half a century, had accepted Malayan/Malaysian cultures - Malayan literature, films, TV shows, songs, and sports events (for example, Malaysia Cup football) - as a part of their lives, and may not want to give them up simply.

While it is tolerable for a people to assume cultures from outside their territories, it must be very incorrect for the people to be passionate to those cultures and even being dependent on them, even to the degree of overlooking their own.

This is what Malaya may have been doing to Sarawak all this while. While peoples had acknowledged foreign cultures elsewhere, it is surely not natural for peoples to deem some foreign cultures as their own, and even being too reliant on them.

Socially, Sarawakians also can be very dependent on Malaya, particularly in education, health, administration, legal practices and event politics. THis we cannot avoid as Sarawak is still lacking in term of social development and educational, health and legal facilities. Nevertheless, that does not mean we should carry on being reliant on Malaya.

"If Sarawakians want to start think seriously about independence, they must see Malaya/Malaysia as a foreign land, and Kuala Lumpur is not a place we should idolise, so that we can be free from the Malayan mental colonisation"

Rakyat Tahu Siapa Penjajah, Agen Penjajah dan Pengkhianat!

Rakyat sebenarnya tahu dan nampak, siapa "Penjajah", "Agen penjajah" dan “Pengkhianat” sebenar! Dan rakyat juga tahu siapa rakyat atau pemimpin yang benar-benar berjuang memelihara dan melindungi kedaulatan dan keselamatan Negara Bangsa Sabah!

Sejarah membuktikan, sifat "Agen Penjajah" kadangkala lebih jahat, hina dan keji daripada "Penjajah"! Kerana "Agen Penjajah" mengkhianati negara dan bangsa sendiri semata-mata kerana agenda, motif dan muslihat untuk mendapatkan suaka politik, kedudukan jawatan atau kepentingan periuk nasi sendiri! Mereka bukan membela kedaulatan, keselamatan, maruah dan nasionalisme Negara Bangsa Sabah, tetapi mereka hanya mahu membela diri sendiri untuk kepentingan sendiri!

Bagi mencapai agenda, motif dan muslihat mereka, “Agen Penjajah” terpaksa memutar belit fakta, menipu, berbohong, berpura-pura, bermuka-muka, memeras ugut, menindas, bertindak zalim, menganiaya, memecat, membunuh, memenjara atau menyeksa rakyat Negara dan Bangsa Sabah! Atas pengaruh, tekanan dan kerjasama pihak “Penjajah”, “Agen Penjajah” bertindak sebagai boneka atau proksi, menjadi Pak Angguk, Pak Turut, Pak Unta dan Pak Hamba kepada “Penjajah”! Mereka mewujudkan dan berselindung di sebalik pelbagai sistem dan peraturan yang mengikat dan menindas hak dan kuasa rakyat! Mereka menggubal pelbagai sistem untuk menutup kebangkitan kesedaran kebangsaan, menutup pemikiran dan suara rakyat!

Sedangkan “Penjajah” menjajah untuk tujuan meluaskan empayar atau jajahan takluk, meluaskan kuasa dan pengaruh, mendapatkan sumber ekonomi/ bahan mentah, mendapatkan kawasan pasaran baru, mendapatkan kekuatan dalam aspek keselamatan, dan menyebarkan agama atau tamadun mereka dengan menjajah negara-negara atau wilayah-wilayah lain yang mereka anggap lebih lemah.

“Agen Penjajah” merujuk kepada seorang rakyat, atau sekumpulan individu rakyat, atau pemimpin, atau pertubuhan dalam sesebuah negara yang dipergunakan atau diperalat oleh “Penjajah” untuk mencapai agenda penjajahan pihak “Penjajah”! Justeru, “Agen Penjajah” bersubahat dengan “Penjajah", dan mereka mempunyai hubungan terancang dan sulit untuk mencapai agenda bersama! “Agen Penjajah”, mereka licik dan pandai bermuka-muka, berpura-pura bagi menunjukkan mereka baik dan betul, mencanangkan sesuatu isu bagi mengaburi atau mengalihkan minda rakyat, menghulurkan bantuan-bantuan bersifat sementara, tetapi hakikatnya mereka adalah petualang, pengkhianat, duri dalam daging, gunting dalam lipatan, musuh dalam selimut, api dalam sekam, kanser dalam daging sebenar! Sifat-sifat buruk, jijik dan keji yang dimiliki oleh “Agen Penjajah” inilah yang menyebabkan mereka dianggap sebagai “Pengkhianat”!

Dalam konteks Negara Sabah, "Penjajah" bermaksud pihak yang telah menyebabkan Sabah kehilangan kuasa kemerdekaan dan kedaulatan sebagai sebuah "Negara". “Penjajah” ini telah memungkiri dan mengkhianati Perjanjian Malaysia 1963 dan Perlembagaan Persekutuan Malaysia. “Penjajah” inilah yang telah menyebabkan Sabah kehilangan kuasa politik, kuasa ekonomi dan sumber-sumber kekayaan! “Penjajah” inilah yang telah menjajah minda rakyat Negara Sabah melalui penipuan dan manipulasi sejarah kenegaraan. “Penjajah” dan “Agen Penjajah” inilah yang telah bersama-sama bersubahat menurunkan taraf “Negara Sabah” kepada “Negeri Sabah”!

“Penjajah” inilah yang telah membawa seribu satu macam penyakit dan masalah ke Sabah melalui kerjasama “Agen Penjajahan” yang telah menjadi “Pengkhianat”! “Penjajah”, “Agen Penjajah” dan “Pengkhianat” ini telah bersama-sama mewujudkan “Projek IC”, “Projek Kewarganegaraan Songsang”, “Projek Pengundi Hantu”, “Projek Pengundi Disewa Beli”, “Projek Membeli ADUN”, “Projek Memindahkan Pengundi”, “Projek Menggugurkan Senarai Nama Pengundi”, “Projek Sijil Lahir”, “Projek Menambahkan Kawasan ADUN/Parlimen”, “Projek Merampas Tanah Sabah”, “Projek Merampas Tanah NCR Masyarakat Native”, “Projek Dasar Kabotaj (Carbotage Policy), “Projek GST”, “Projek Merampas Minyak dan Gas Sabah”, “Projek Merampas Cukai Sabah”, dan seribu satu macam lagi projek yang telah membawa penyakit kronik ke Sabah!

Justeru, rakyat tahu dan nampak, “Siapa Penjajah, Agen Penjajah dan Pengkhianat” yang sebenar yang telah merosakkan Negara Bangsa Sabah! Jika rakyat sudah tahu dan nampak, adakah rakyat faham, sedar dan insaf? Apa tindakan yang patut mereka buat sekarang? Fikir-fikirkan..!

Why should you support the independence of Catalonia?

In the last 200 years, the world has seen lots of new countries being born. Most of them became independent after a civil war, others as a result of WW1 or WW2. Very few, like Iceland, can be proud to have achieved independence through a democratic process. Thus, if we preserve a bit of historical perspective, we must admit we have been experiencing an adjustment of the frontiers to cultural and regional borders for over 200 years. Just remember that as a result of WW1 Poland, Austria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and Estonia were formed, and Poland had been previously a kingdom on its own before being part of the German Prussian empire.

Decolonization and civil wars also produced countries like Canada and USA, South Africa, Brazil or Mexico. But after WW2 the list of countries gaining independence became even bigger: over 25 countries, including China, Tunisia, Iceland, Philippines or Ireland. And during the last part of the XX century we saw Czech Republic and Slovakia becoming two separate countries, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Kazakhstan and even the island of Palau became independent from the USA in 1994. Therefore, we must comprehend that this is an ongoing tendency, being Kosovo the last one in 2008.

However there is one state in the European Union with a government unwilling to free up their last colonies: Spain. I am not going to explain again how Catalonia or the Basque country became part of the Spanish empire hundreds of years ago. Let me just remind you it was against the will of the people. Now Catalans we found ourselves looking at history and not understanding why some educated people from Brazil may not understand why Catalan people want their independence, did they not get it themselves? Why the Dutch people do not support Catalonia efforts, when their nation was submitted to the Spanish kings once and they were freed, supported by the British, as they were freed from Nazis just last century? Why a French person, whose family fought for freedom, equality and fraternity, are obtuse to see the reasons why we Catalans are doing what we are doing lately to get out of the Spanish false democracy and form a new true democratic state within the European Union?

As explained through this blog, there are several reasons, some cultural, some historical, and others socioeconomic. But there is a very important reason I would like to point out here: we Catalans do not live in a democratic state. Our rights as citizens in this world are diminished every day, our historical memory is silenced, our taxes used for corrupted politicians to spend their vacations in Fiji, our cultural heritage damaged and insulted, our freedom to choose our political representatives is diminished through censorship and demagogy, our rights as workers and employers plundered, favoring nepotism and corruption to all levels. Spanish politicians have tried to slander our process towards independence by saying we are doing apology of fascism, while they are precisely Franco’s heirs, the ones willing to forbid again Catalan in schools or overruling our right to vote, like they did for 40 years of dictatorship last century.

We would like to become a free new state with improved laws and tax system. With the 22,000 millions of Euros the Spanish government never returns to Catalan people, though they should according to their own laws, we could get so many people out of poverty. So many families would have their present and future improved in all areas: public health, education, social care…

So, it does not matter where you live or where you are from, if you are out there in the world and believe in democracy, please give support to the Catalan process. If you believe in the principles described in the letter of human rights, if you believe all nations have their right to self-determination and all people should be free and have right to vote to decide; if you believe in freedom of thought and expression and if you believe your country improved after gaining independence, please support Catalonia’s right to independence.

Sabah and Sarawak's right to say 'Sorry, no entry'

QUICK TAKE: The power to say, “Sorry, no entry” to anyone, including Malaysian citizens, into Sabah or Sarawak rests entirely in the hands of the director of immigration of these Borneo states who is to comply with the direction of the “State authority” which in effect means the chief minister.

The latest victim of this special immigration power, granted to the two states since the formation of Malaysia in September 1963, happens to be Seputeh Member of Parliament Teresa Kok who was denied entry when she landed at the Sandakan airport after a flight from Kuala Lumpur on Feb 4.

As usual and expected, there are protests over the incident but to no avail, because the state concerned does not even have to give a reason or explain such an action.

For, under Section 65(1)(a) of the Immigration Act 1959/63, the state authority in Sabah or Sarawak has the right to restrict or cancel a permit, pass or certificate of anyone wishing to gain enter into that state.

This is a law applicable only to the East Malaysian states in recognition of the fact that immigration control was one of the top safeguards requested by Sabah and Sarawak leaders and this point was duly incorporated into the Immigration Act 1959 that was accordingly amended by Parliament in 1963.

In the months prior to the formation of Malaysia, there were genuine fears of people in Sarawak and Sabah that Malayans who were more advanced in education, commerce and industry, would flock into their states in large numbers and take away employment and other opportunities from the locals, considered as unfair competition then.

Over half a century down the line, this law is still firmly in place and from time to time the chief minister concerned would use it to bar the entry of individuals considered by him to be undesirable to the state, including leaders of opposition parties, like Teresa Kok.

And no one could do anything about it, not even the prime minister.

Last November when Negara-Ku Patron Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan was denied entry into Sabah she described the ban as ridiculous saying, “I don't know what they are paranoid about in this day and age. These types of restrictions are meaningless, when there are other ways to go about it.”

She had suffered a similar restriction in April 2011 when disallowed to enter Kuching and put on the next flight back to Kuala Lumpur, her port of origin. She took the matter to the High Court in the nation's capital and was told by the court there that it had no jurisdiction to hear a Borneo case and dismissed her application.

Another who had a similar experience was PKR vice-president Tian Chua, who was denied entry into Sabah by the immigration authority in April 2013 and forced to take the next flight back to Kuala Lumpur the same day.

The display of this special power by the state authority of these two states is not confined only to social activists and opposition personalities, but to academicians as well. In late December last year, controversial academician Ridhuan Tee Abdullah was barred from entering Sarawak upon arrival at the Kuching International Airport.

Sarawak Immigration Department deputy director Hamfatullah Syawal Hamdan confirmed to Bernama in a report that his department had received instructions from the Chief Minister’s Office to stop Mohd Ridhuan from entering the state.

Mohd Ridhuan was scheduled to deliver a religious talk at the Lundu District Mosque. A source told Bernama that Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem was not in favour of Ridhuan's presence in Lundu and had instructed that the event be cancelled.

Two years ago, PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar was denied entry into Sabah because she was heading for an event in conjunction with the state level Kaamatan (harvest) festival in Penampang, near the state capital.

State Secretary Tan Sri Sukarti Wakiman explained in early June 2013 that the ban on Nurul Izzah was only for a single occasion, which was on the eve of the closing ceremony of the state level Kaamatan celebrations on May 30. He said the decision to bar her entry was done for security reason.

“There is no permanent ban on her or any other opposition leader coming into Sabah as long as they do not pose a security threat,” he was reported to have said then.

According to Sandakan Member of Parliament Stephen Wong, who was at the airport to receive Teresa Kok on Wednesday, the latter was scheduled to attend and witness the installation of DAP Sandakan Wanita wing that night.

In what way could the Seputeh MP be a security threat then?

Apakah Peluang Filipina Untuk Menuntut Sabah?

Sekiranya Kes Ini Dibawa Ke Mahkamah Keadilan Antarabangsa (ICJ)? Tidak ada.

Pertama, undang-undang antarabangsa yang ditadbir oleh ICJ menolak tuntutan kedaulatan berdasarkan semata-mata kepada hak milik bersejarah (historic title), selepas referendum atau pungutan suara dilakukan.

"Modern international law does not recognize the survival of a right of sovereignty based solely on historic title; not, in any event, after an exercise of self-determination conducted in accordance with the requisites of international law, the bona fides of which has received international recognition by the political organs of the United Nations"

Undang-undang antarabangsa moden tidak mengiktiraf kemandirian hak kedaulatan yang berdasarkan semata-mata kepada hak milik bersejarah; tidak, dalam apa juga peristiwa, selepas penggunaan hak penentuan diri (self-determination) dilakukan mengikut keperluan undang-undang antarabangsa, bona fide yang mendapat pengiktirafan antarabangsa oleh badan-badan politik Pertubuhan Bangsa-bangsa Bersatu.

Kedua, kerana waris Sultan Sulu telah menerima ‘cession money‘ sehingga ke hari ini. Ini bermakna waris Sultan Sulu mengakui bahawa Sabah telah diserah (ceded), dan bukannya dipajak (leased), kepada British North Borneo Company. 

Ketiga, kerana Kerajaan Filipina telah berhenti mengiktiraf Sultan Sulu sejak kemangkatan Sultan Mohd. Mahakuttah A. Kiram pada tahun 1986.Geran yang dijadikan sumber konflik telah ditandatangani oleh Sultan Sulu, Sultan Jamalul A’lam dengan Gustavus Baron de Overbeck serta Alfred Dent, yang mewakili British North Borneo Company, pada 22 Januari 1878.

Keempat, geran yang ditandatangani antara British North Borneo Company dan Kesultanan Sulu itu telah diatasi oleh Protokol Madrid 1885. Sepanyol, yang menguasai wilayah-wilayah Kesultanan Sulu ketika itu, telah menandatangani perjanjian dengan Jerman dan Great Britain pada 7 Mac 1885 untuk melepaskan segala tuntutan terhadap kedaulatan Sabah. Article 3 The Spanish Government relinquishes as far as regards the British Government, all claim of sovereignty over the territories of the continent of Borneo which belong, or which have belonged in the past, to the Sultan of Sulu (Jolo), including therein the neighboring islands of Balambangan, Banguey and Malawali, as well as all those islands lying within a zone of three marine leagues along the coasts and which form part of the territories administered by the Company styled the ‘British North Borneo Company’. 

(Kerajaan Sepanyol melepaskan kepada Kerajaan British, semua tuntutan kedaulatan ke atas wilayah-wilayah benua Borneo yang dimiliki, atau yang telah dimiliki pada masa lampau, oleh Sultan Sulu (Jolo), termasuk pulau-pulau Balambangan, Banguey dan Malawali yang berhampiran, dan semua pulau-pulau yang berada di dalam zon tiga liga marin di sepanjang pesisir pantai dan membentuk sebahagian wilayah yang ditadbir oleh Syarikat yang digelar ‘British North Borneo Company‘.)

Kelima, Kesultanan Sulu dianggap telah tamat sebaik sahaja Sultan Jamalul Kiram II menandatangani Perjanjian Carpenter pada 22 Mac 1915, yang menyerahkan segala kuasa politik beliau kepada Amerika Syarikat. Keenam, kerajaan Malaysia telah mengambil tanggungjawab untuk membangunkan prasarana bagi kemudahan para penduduk Sabah sejak 1963 tanpa bantahan Kesultanan Sulu mahupun kerajaan Filipina. Ini membuktikan pemilikan dan pentadbiran yang aman secara berterusan oleh kerajaan Malaysia ke atas Sabah. Mengikut dasar effectivites yang diambil kira oleh Mahkamah Keadilan Antarabangsa (ICJ – International Court of Justice), Malaysia boleh dianugerahkan hak ke atas Sabah, sepertimana yang pernah diberikan kepada kerajaan Malaysia dalam kes Ligitan-Sipadan.

Keenam, laporan Suruhanjaya Cobbold yang dikeluarkan pada 1 Ogos 1962 mendapati bahawa 1/3 penduduk Sabah dan Sarawak menyokong kuat pembentukan Malaysia, 1/3 lagi menyokong projek Malaysia dengan syarat hak mereka dilindungi, manakala kumpulan 1/3 yang terakhir terbahagi antara mereka yang mahukan kemerdekaan dan mereka yang mahukan pentadbiran British diteruskan.

Ketujuh, Setiausaha Agung PBB, U Thant, telah melaporkan pada 1963 bahawa penduduk Sabah “ingin menamatkan status kebergantungan mereka dan merealisasikan kemerdekaan mereka melalui penyekutuan yang dipilih secara bebas dengan bangsa lain dalam rantau mereka” (“wish to bring their dependent status to an end and to realize their independence through freely chosen association with other peoples in their region”).

Kelapan, jika Kesultanan Sulu mendakwa bahawa Sabah adalah milik mereka, maka adalah konsisten bagi Kesultanan Sulu untuk tidak sahaja membuat tuntutan terhadap Sabah semata-mata, malah juga menuntut dan menguasai pusat pentadbiran mereka sendiri di Jolo, selain wilayah Palawan, Semenanjung Zamboanga, Basilan dan Tawi-Tawi di Filipina yang juga mereka dakwa merupakan milik mereka.


***Secara keseluruhan, penerangan ini telah memberikan kefahaman yang sebenarnya. Inilah perkara yang perlu difahami walaupun terdapat perkara yang kurang tepat iaitu pada Poin yang Keenam, tetapi ia akan diulaskan pada artikel yang berlainan***

Sabah and Sarawak at 50, ignoring history at your own peril

As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Federation of Malaysia, there will be a lot of articles about three things.

First, Sarawak (and Sabah) did not “join” Malaysia but helped establish the Federation of Malaysia. Second, Sarawak (and Sabah) should be treated as equals, rather than merely a state in the Federation.

After all, Sarawak became “independent” or “self-government” on July 22, 1963 while Sabah achieved the same on August 31, 1963.

Third, the promise of autonomy in the “20 Points” was never kept. For example, how many of you know that there was supposed to be a review of the guarantees 10 years after Federation? As far as I know there was no formal review in 1973 although some letters were exchanged.

Where you stand on the three things I mentioned above will largely depend on your political leanings. It is also dependent on how well you know your history.

And this is where the problem starts.

In general, Malaysians do not know their history because the “official” history taught in secondary school is a version of history that is supposed to shape you into a Malaysian nationalist, i.e. do not challenge Malay authority. It is not meant to provide an unbiased view of history.

Also, as I understand it, the history textbook was actually written by a historian who also happens to be a supreme council member of Perkasa. Do I need to say more about the sort of history that is being taught in school?

In short, Malaysians know little or next to nothing about Malaysian history and East Malaysians know even less about the history of Sabah and Sarawak.

Each state was unique and before the federation, had little in common with the peninsula. Sabah was ruled for more than a century by a British company while Sarawak was ruled by the White Rajahs, an English family.

I am not here to teach history but rather to question what is being done to document what really happened in the past? For example, the seminal event in Sarawak’s history is the cession of Sarawak to the British in 1946.

Many people, especially the Sarawak Malays, did not want the White Rajah to give away Sarawak to the British.

According to the “official” version, Rosli Dhoby, a young Malay Sarawakian from Sibu, Sarawak, stabbed Sir Duncan George Stewart, the second governor of colonial Sarawak in 1948. He wanted Sarawak to be independent. Rosli Dhoby is hailed as a hero who paved the way for Sarawak to be independent in the federation of Malaysia.

Recent research undertaken overseas suggests something else. I am not going to give you any hints and suggest you listen to the full story here.

I just want to make a simple point - how come there are no Malaysian historians studying their own country in an unbiased way?

Must historians in this country show their “patriotism” by only studying non-controversial things? How come all the interesting bits of history are done by non-Malaysians?

If I am not mistaken, there are four universities in Sarawak and two universities in Sabah. They keep producing ethnography work but little in the way of peoples’ history.

It is as if historians in both states are afraid of telling the world what really happened during colonial and pre-colonial times.

The “official” history is almost never challenged and after 50 years of Malaysia, Malaysians from Sabah and Sarawak only know the history of Malaya. How sad. - September 11, 2013.

Sarawak ‘brave’ to celebrate July 22 independence day, says Kitingan

KUCHING: Borneo Heritage Foundation (BHF) president Datuk Dr Jeffrey G Kitingan has commended the Sarawak government for celebrating the day it became an independent nation – July 22, 1963.

Saying it was ‘better late than never’, he said the move showed the government recognised the fact that Sarawak is a nation within the Federation of Malaysia.

“(Chief Minister Pehin Sri) Taib Mahmud may have his weaknesses, but he is also doing good in protecting the

rights of Sarawak. Celebrating the Independence Day of Sarawak is a very brave step, and I congratulate the Sarawak government for that,” he told reporters before the Sarawak Independence Day Forum at a hotel here yesterday.

He added the state government showed it still had the ‘Sarawak Mind’, and was not letting itself to be taken over by the ‘Malayan Mind’.

Asked what he meant by ‘Malayan Mind’, Kitingan said it referred to an Umno-driven agenda to control Sarawak and Sabah politically so that they could control its resources.

While he was hopeful July 22 would be declared a public holiday, he said the Sarawak government should not let the special ceremony to be staged today (July 22) to commemorate the handing over of the administration by the British Government to Sarawak to be a ‘one-off’ affair.

“We do not want tomorrow’s event to be just a one-off in every 50 years. It should be celebrated every year, and the rakyat should know the significance of it,” said the Bingkor assemblyman from Sabah, who is also State Reform Party (STAR) Sabah chairman.

On the increasing awareness among Sarawakians on the significance of July 22, he said it was an encouraging sign, but he hoped this historical event would be included in the history subject.

“I think it should be taught in school. Why should we hide the information? I think in the past, the federal government has deliberately denied us this information because it is not even taught in schools, and the general population do not know about it.

“It is consistent with what (a former prime minister) told me, `Don’t teach people what they don’t know’.”

He also expressed his wish that Sarawak would not repeat the mistake of Sabah by allowing Peninsula-based parties to take root and take over the government.

A special pantomime depicting historical events leading to the independence of Sarawak 50 years ago from the British Government and the formation of Malaysia will be staged at the Kuching Waterfront today in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Sarawak’s Independence through Malaysia.

On July 22, 1963, the last British colonial governor Sir Alexander Waddell left the Astana and boarded a white sampan to cross the Sarawak River to hand over the administration of Sarawak to her own people.

Sarawak joined Sabah, Malaya and Singapore to form Malaysia on September 16, 1963.

Head of State Tun Datuk Patinggi Abang Muhammad Salahuddin and Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud are scheduled to grace the event along with cabinet ministers and dignitaries.

CHURCHILL TO MOVE CENCURE VOTE OVER SARAWAK


LONDON, Friday: The Opposition will move a vote of censure in the House of Commons against the Government for its refusal to permit Anthony Brooke to enter Sarawak

Anthony Brooke, who is a nephew of Sir Charles Vyner Brooke, the last White Rajah of Sarawak, was debarred from entering Sarawak as an undesirable person because it was suspected he was about to restore the Brooke regime. 

After Mr.Churchill had given notice of he cencure motion, the Lord President of Council (Mr.Morrison) asked on what ground was the Government to be censured, to which Mr.Churchill replied that tyranny, conceit and incompetence will be the substance of the motion.

It was officially stated in Singapore where Mr.Brooke arrived last night, that he had refused to give assurances that, if he came to Singapore from Hongkong, he would refrain from making statements or indulging in any activity relating to the status of Sarawak.

‘Sarawak For Sarawakians’ call gains momentum as polls inch closer

KUCHING, June 24 — A third political force could dawn soon in Sarawak as the Borneo state’s natives seek to close ranks to counter the might of the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) and the DAP-PKR-PAS opposition, both of which are commanded by parties centred in Peninsular Malaysia.

Sarawak-based opposition parties, civil society groups as well as its activists and other individuals with local interests are in talks to set up a native force, former president of the de-registered Sarawak Association of People’s Aspirations (SAPA) Lina Soo told Malay Mail Online today.

“We are having discussions to form a Sarawak force in opposition to Barisan and peninsula-based opposition parties,” she said.

Among the local opposition parties involved are Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS Baru) and State Reform Party (Star).

Soo said there were no issues with candidates from the BN or PR contesting under their party banner, but stressed the condition was for them to subscribe wholly to the Sarawakians For Sarawak dogma.

She also said the Sarawak force would be using “Sarawak For Sarawakians” slogan to draw support among the voters.

“Therefore, the Sarawak next state election could be most interesting should the formation of the Sarawak force materialise,” said Soo, who leads a “Sarawak4Sarawakians” civil movement.

The upcoming election will likely trigger a resurgence of sentiment among Sarawakians who have been demanding greater autonomy in the state, notably on oil and gas resources found in its territorial waters.

“Even Adenan Satem is also saying that Sarawak is for Sarawakians,” Soo said, referring to the state chief minister.

It was the Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) which started the slogan “Sarawak For Sarawakians” in 1962 to oppose the Malaysian Plan, Soo said, adding that the call was taken up by Sarawak National Party (SNAP) after the ouster of its president Tan Sri Stephen Kalong Ningkan from his chief minister post in 1965.

Iktiraf 22 Julai cuti umum Sarawak

Sarawak bebas pada 22 Julai 1963 apabila Gabenor British Sir Alexander Waddel menyerahkan kuasa kepada Ketua Menteri Pertama, Tan Sri Stephen Kalong Ningkan.

PETALING JAYA: Wujud beberapa tuntutan yang mahu kerajaan Malaysia mengiktiraf 22 Julai sebagai cuti umum bagi negeri Sarawak sebagai perayaan ulang tahun kemerdekaan.

Selepas Pusat mengiktiraf hari pembentukan Malaysia pada 16 September sebagai cuti umum bermula tahun 2010, ada beberapa perdebatan daripada penduduk Sabah dan Sarawak mengenai tarikh 31 Ogos.

“22 Julai masih digunakan kerajaan Sarawak untuk menyambut upacara kemerdekaan.

“Atas sebab itu ada lagi satu tuntutan untuk menjadikan tarikh tersebut sebagai hari cuti bagi mengenang kemerdekaan Sarawak,” kata Pensyarah Kanan Jabatan Sejarah, Fakulti Sastera dan Sains Sosial Universiti Malaya (UM) Dr Suffian Mansor.

Sarawak bebas pada 22 Julai 1963 apabila Gabenor British Sir Alexander Waddel menyerahkan kuasa kepada Ketua Menteri Pertama, Tan Sri Stephen Kalong Ningkan, sebelum menyertai Tanah Melayu dan Sabah membentuk Malaysia dua bulan kemudian.

Sementara itu, katanya walaupun konfrontasi dan ancaman komunis menjadi sejarah Sarawak, namun masalah keselamatan masih menjadi antara cabaran utama yang harus ditangani Pusat dengan baik.

Antaranya, tuntutan Limbang oleh Brunei yang masih berterusan walaupun Brunei tidak pernah menggunakan ketenteraan untuk merampas Limbang.

Tetapi menurutnya sejarah membuktikan pemberontakan Brunei juga pernah menjalar ke Sarawak, malah pada tahun awal 1970-an terdapat saranan dari bekas Sultan Brunei, Seri Begawan untuk memperkuatkan ketenteraannya bagi menghadapi ancaman dari Malaysia.

“Walaupun Seri Begawan telah meninggal dunia tetapi tuntutan Brunei keatas Limbang berterusan sehingga ke hari ini.

“Mantan Perdana Menteri Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi berusaha menyelesaikan isu itu tetapi gagal, malahan beliau dipertikaikan kerana dikatakan menyerahkan dua kawasan minyak iaitu Blok L dan M,” katanya.

Selain itu, serangan Barisan Pembebasan Kebangsaan Moro (MNLF) pimpinan Nur Misuari keatas Zamboanga, Filipina baru-baru ini juga dilihatnya tidak mustahil mampu mengancam keselamatan Sabah dan Sarawak.

Negara Sabah dan persekutuan tanah melayu (malaya) adalah seperti umpama Kerbau dan singa tua yang sakit


Seperti yang dapat dilihat didalam gambar ini, seekor singa tua yang sakit berusaha untuk menerkam kerbau yang besar, berisi untuk dijadikan santapannya namun, apabila melihat gambar seterusnya, ia jelas bahawa singa tua yang sakit ini tidak berkemampuan untuk merebahkan seekor kerbau yang gagah dan perkasa yang mempunyai semangat juang untuk hidup yang tinggi. 


Singa tua yang sakit ini telah berhempas pulas untuk menjadikannya sebagai pembekal tenaga sehingga mengakibatkan nyawanya menjadi pertaruhan dan cedera parah akibat ditanduk dan dibelasah oleh kerbau ini. 


Keadaan menjadi lebih teruk lagi apabila seekor kerbau memberi bantuan untuk menyelamatkan rakannya yang diserang oleh singa tua yang sakit ini telah mengakibatkan singa tersebut tersungkur jatuh kerana telah diranak tanpa henti.


Diakhir kepada insiden ini, singa tua tersebut telah mati dan kerbau yang hampir dijadikan makanan kepada singa tua  yang sakit itu telah melelapkan matanya untuk selamanya.


Penceritaan diatas ini bolehlah diumpamakan kepada persekutuan malaysia yang sebelum ini memiliki empat buah negara yang merdeka dan berdaulat. Setelah Singapura menarik diri, malaya telah menjadikan Negara Sabah dan Negara Sarawak seperti kerbau untuk dimakan oleh singa.


Dahulu, kerajaan Negara Sabah dan kerajaan Negara Sarawak sentiasa menjadi mangsa penindasan kepada diskriminasi peruntukan persekutuan, pembangunan infrastruktur, ekonomi, pendidikan, kesihatan, keselamatan dan sebagainya namun kini keadaan sudah bertukar 360 darjah yang mana malaya kini sudah jelas kelihatan dan sedar bahawa selama ini pembangunan yang dikecapi di malaya adalah hasil daripada negara Sabah dan negara Sarawak. 


Malaya kini juga serupa seperti seorang pengemis yang datang tanpa perasaan malu untuk menagih simpati berkali-kali untuk membantu mereka membentuk kerajaan (sama ada bn mahupun pr). Segala janji-janji manis terang bulan ditaburkan tanpa henti namun hakikatnya, perjanjian malaysia yang telah menjadi dasar kepada pembentukkan persekutuan malaysia ini pun mereka belum mampu melaksanakan sepenuhnya. Inikan pula janji baru. 


Semua rakyat Borneo daripada negara Sabah dan negara Sarawak mampu melihat keadaan yang sebenar status malaya. Disebabkan oleh pentadbiran yang penuh dengan rasuah, didalangi oleh kroni-kroni yang mempunyai kepentingan peribadi melebihi kepentingan rakyat telah membawa malaya yang juga dikenali sebagai malaysia menuju kepada satu era iaitu era kegawatan ekonomi disebabkan oleh hutang yang dihasilkan oleh gerombolan pemimpin-pemimpin politik malaya yang berbilion-bilion mengakibatkan segala pembangunan terjejas teruk. Kejatuhan nilai matawang yang serius bakal mengakibatkan kos taraf hidup melambung tinggi kerana untuk membeli sesuatu barangan keperluan, sejumlah wang yang banyak diperlukan untuk membayarnya.


Keadilan terhadap bangsa Borneo kini telah tiba dan penyelamatannya kian terasa kerana semua rakyat telah sedar akan senario semasa ini dan bibit-bibit kepimpinan anak-anak muda yang mempunyai semangat nasionalisme kini telah jelas kelihatan. Hanya masa sahaja yang menjadi perhitungan untuk golongan muda ini untuk mengambil alih pemerintahan negara yang akan memberikan perhatian sepenuhnya terhadap kepentingan rakyat dan negara tanpa melebihkan kepentingan peribadi.

Penderitaan akan berakhir tidak lama lagi kerana penyelamatan bangsa borneo kini sedang didalam proses untuk mengambil-alih kerajaan dan penghapusan terhadap budaya malaya akan dilakukan agar budaya Borneo daripada negara Sabah dan negara Sarawak didaulatkan selamanya.

Donald Stephens Respond To Tengku Abdul Rahman's Greater Malaysia Plan

I WAS one of the signatories of the United Front statement issued in Jesselton on July 8 after a meeting of the Sarawak United People Party chairman, the president of Party Rakyat, and myself.

The statement made it clear that as far as the signatories were able to make out the vast majority of people in the thress territories were completely against the idea that any of the Borneo territories should join Malaya as individual states.

I am fully convinced that the statement did voice the opinion of the majority. I have friends among all communities in all three territories and I have yet to hear one voice raised in favour of the idea that we join Malaya as individual states.

The first impression gathered after the Tengku's address to the foreign correspondents was that Tengku had been putting into words what we all had in mind for some time that at some stage in the not distant future when the Borneo territories have achieved self-government and independence, there would be some closer link forged between the Borneo territories and Malaya.

But nearly all leaders in Borneo are agreed that first things must come first and the first thing which needed attention was a getting together of the Borneo territories; that when we talk with Malaya, it will be as equals, not as vassals.

The way the Tengku made known his plan in Brunei and Sarawak has made it appear that he was trying to force the issue.

This was most unfortunate and done less harm to his ideas had he taken better advice about the opinion of the people in the territories. Whoever advised him, gave him wrong advice. 

We have learned much about merdeka from malaya and the flames of our own desire for merdeka have in no small way been stoked by what we have seen in Malaya; because of this, it is hoped that Malaya will and can understand our own desire for independence and will nt take offence when we say that we do not want to join Malaya as colonies which in what we will be if we join Malaya now.

We are trying to Borneanise our civil service; we are trying to see that more and more of the jobs held by expatriates go to our own people.

If we join Malaya now, the people who will come and take most of the top jobs will be form Malay; Malayans who instead of being our brothers and fellow citizens will in fact be viewed as they have been in Brunei as the "New Expatriates".

The plan to get all the countries in Borneo to join Malaya at this stage cannot be acceptable because in Borneo itself the seeds of nationalism have been planted, a pride in their own country by the people of the country.

The Borneo peoples have a legitimate aspiration, that of working towards merdeka themselves.

If the Tengku wants to help us, he can do so by enlarging his Little Colombo Plan, by helping us march faster towards self-government and independence because the sooner we have self-government the sooner will also it be possible for us to think of a merger with Malaya.

The Tengku should urge the Sultan of Brunei to join with the other two Borneo territories in a federation (where in fact the Sultan's chances of becoming Agong of the three territories are much greater than if the join Malaya).

Once the Borneo territories are federated then it will be possible to work on Tengku's CONfederation plan, the federation of two Federations.

The talk about our country being very backward has not gone down very well either; we are not paupers and we have development plans which promise right happy and prosperous future for our people even without outside assistance.

We are naturally worried about outside intrusion into our paradise and we had hoped that Malaya could be a friend and partner in our endeavour once we have gained self-government in fighting intrusion from any quarter. The fact that all the time showed that trust we had in Malaya.

But now we feel that Malaya itself is trying to intrude and make us so dependent on Malaya that we would never really be able to obtain merdeka for ourselves.

Our hope is that the Tengku will let matters rest and will begin showing us the truth of his promise to help us; that he will not be piqued by our refusal to accept, what to him is a big hearted offer, and that the friendship between the Borneo territories and Malaya will remain - and he can best do this by forgetting that he had ever offered the Borneo territories to join Malaya as the 12th, the 13th, and the 14th states of the Federation of Malaya.

Written by Donald Stephens on 18th July 1961

MENGAPA SEKARANG MINTA PUNGUTAN SUARA?

LONDON: Perdana Menteri, Tengku Abdul Rahman, lagi sekali menolak anjoran pemungutan suara mengenai Malaysia dengan alasan soal itu tidak dikemukakan waktu gagasan itu mula2 diumumkan dahulu. 

"Malaysia bukan sesuatu perkara yang dipaksakan kaatas sasiapa juga. Raayat sendiri bebas memileh. Gagasan itu dihuraikan kepada mereka melalui Parlemen2 melalui pemimpn2 mereka dan melalui ketua2 puak."

"Ketika mengundang raayat wilayah2 Borneo datang ka Malaya, Mereka menyoal dan bertanya. Setahun lamanya mereka tidak putus2 datang"

"Akhirnya mereka puas hati dan memberitahu kita bahawa mereka ingin masok Persekutuan Malaysia".

"Saya sunggoh2 tidak mengerti mengapa sekarang baharu ada tuntutan supaya dilakukan pungutan suara sedangkan perkara itu tidak ditimbulkan ketika gagasan dibentangkan kapada Parlemen".

Tengku membuat uchapan demikian dalam satu majlis kera'jan yang diberikan kerananya oleh masharakat pelajar2 Malaya di-Britain malam semalam.

Tengku berucap dengan naskah uchapan yang sudah disediakan, tetapi kadang2 menyimpang dari naskah itu untuk berjenaka kepada pelajar2 itu, yang menyambutnya dengan gelak ketawa.

Kata Tengku: "Kita tidak harus selalu serious sangat. Kadang2 kita mesti masokkan asam garam supaya makanan menjadi lazat".

Sepanjang2 uchapannya, Tengku kelihatan gembira. Tetapi beliau juga berbichara dengan penoh serious.

Tengku serious bila mengumumkan bahawa wilayah2 yang masok Malaysia adalah bebas untok keluar dari persekutuan itu kiranya negara baharu itu tidak mendatangkan apa2 keuntongan kapada mereka.

Katanya: "Saya selalu berpendirian bahawa satiap orang bebas membuat keputusan sendiri".

PEMBANGUNAN

Tengku berkata melalui Malaysa, raayat akan diberikan keamanan, kekuatan dan kesejahteraan.

Adalah menjadi chita2 kerajaan pusat untok meninggikan taraf hidup raayat diwilayah2 yang memerlukan pembangunan wilayah2 itu dan menjadikan raayatnya maamor.



Nota: Didalam artikel surat khabar tersebut, dia telah menafikan segalanya. Kononnya tiada usaha untuk membuat pungutan suara suara tetapi yang realitinya PENENTANGAN SANGAT HEBAT DI NEGARA SARAWAK DAN NEGARA NORTH BORNEO (kini SABAH) tetapi mereka telah mendiamkan suara Nasionalisme ini. Perbuatan kepura-puraan dan penafian mereka tidak pernah berubah sehingga sekarang.

RAHSIA KEMATIAN TUN FUAD DALAM SATU NAHAS KAPAL TERBANG

Info ini adalah kebenaran yang cuba disembunyikan malah berusaha untuk dihapuskan namun sehingga kini usaha tersebut menemui jalan buntu. Ia seperti malam dan siang. Mampukah waktu malam bertahan selamanya? Begitu juga waktu siang...

Sila baca dan sebarkan...

Ketua menteri Sabah yang tidak akur kepada kehendak Kuala Lumpur digulingkan.

Sejak Sabah memperoleh kemerdekaan pada 31hb Ogos 1963, Kuala Lumpur telah memastikan supaya mana-mana Ketua Menteri Sabah tidak akan bertahan lama apabila mereka tidak akur kepada kehendak Kuala 

#Donald Stephens (Tun Fuad) terpaksa meletakkan jawatan sebagai Ketua Menteri Sabah pertama kerana dihantar sebagai Pesuruhjaya Tinggi Malaysia di Australia, digantikan oleh Datuk Peter Lo dari SCA pada tahun 1965 dengan penglibatan pemimpin Kuala Lumpur (Syed Kechik sebagai penasihat kepada Tun Mustapha dikatakan telah memainkan peranan penting dalam hal ini). Ini kerana Donald Stephens sebagai Ketua Menteri Sabah pertama telah memperlihatkan kesungguhannya mempertahankan Konsep Asal Pembentukan Malaysia iaitu 'rakan sama rata'. Tun Fuad juga mahu merujuk semula kedudukan Sabah dalam Malaysia setelah Singapura disingkir dari Malaysia. Ini kerana, keputusan Sabah menyertai pembentukan Malaysia adalah disebabkan oleh Singapura dan baginya tidak ada sebab lagi bagi Sabah bersama dengan Malaysia tanpa kehadiran Singapura. Tindakan serupa juga dilakukan oleh Kuala Lumpur untuk menggulingkan Stephen Kalong Ningkan, Ketua Menteri Sarawak pertama. 

#Apabila Kerajaan Berjaya ditumbangkan PBS dalam pilihanraya 1985, Datuk Joseph Pairin (Tan Sri) tidak mendapat sokongan sepenuhnya oleh Kuala Lumpur kerana perjuangan PBS pimpinan Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan (Tan Sri) pada ketika itu dilihat mencabar kepimpinan Persekutuan dengan mengungkit hal berkaitan dengan 20-PERKARA dan Perjanjian Malaysia yang di perkenalkan oleh Datuk Dr Jeffrey dalam perjuangan PBS. Malangnya PBS telah tidak mendalami hal-hal berkaitan dengan 20-Perkara, Suruhanjaya Cobbold, IGC dan Perjanjian Malaysia sebagai tonggak perjuangan, sehingga begitu mudah PBS kembali ke pangkuan Barisan Nasional.

#Agenda Petronas, tidak menyenangkan Kuala Lumpur. Difahamkan bahawa Tun Datu Mustapha menuntut supaya Sabah mendapat 35% daripada hasil minyak petroleum Sabah, sedangkan Kuala Lumpur hanya mahu memberi 5% kepada Sabah. Dengan fitnah bahawa kononnya Tun Datu Mustapha sedang merancang membawa keluar Sabah dari Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur menaja Parti BERJAYA untuk menumbangkan USNO dalam pilihanraya negeri pada tahun 1976. Dalam pilihanraya tersebut, USNO telah tumbang di tangan BERJAYA.

#Keengganan Tun Datu Mustapha, Ketua Menteri Sabah untuk tunduk kepada kehendak Kuala Lumpur pada tahun 1975, menyebabkan Kuala Lumpur tidak selesa dan melihat tindak-tanduk Tun Datu Mustapha sebagai menggagalkan usaha Kuala Lumpur untuk terus menguasai Sabah. Keengganan Tun Datu Mustapha untuk menyerahkan kekuasaan minyak petroleum Sabah kepada Kuala Lumpur melalui perjanjian Petronas

#Selain itu, peristiwa 'Double Six' juga banyak menimbulkan persoalan di kalangan rakyat Sabah. Dalam peristiwa ini, Tun Fuad Stephens, Ketua Menteri di bawah Kerajaan Berjaya yang baru memerintah selama 51 hari bersama 4 ahli kabinet menterinya telah ditimpa nahas kapal terbang dalam penerbangan balik ke Kota Kinabalu dari Labuan. Tun Fuad tidak menandatangani perjanjian penyerahan kuasa petroleum kepada Petronas dalam pertemuannya dengan rombongan Kuala Lumpur di Labuan kerana, baginya perkara itu harus dibawa dalam mesyuarat kabinet dahulu. Datuk Haris Salleh, Ketua Menteri Sabah yang telah menggantikan Tun Fuad Stephens telah mendapat sokongan sepenuhnya oleh Kuala Lumpur dengan kenyataan Mahathir, “berenang dan tenggelam bersama Berjaya”. Datuk Haris Salleh telah menandatangani penyerahan kekuasaan petroleum Sabah kepada Kuala Lumpur melalui Petronas, pada 14hb Jun 1976, iaitu 8 hari selepas nahas kapal terbang yang meragut nyawa Tun Fuad dan rakan- rakannya, tanpa dibawa dalam perbincangan kabinet menterinya.

 #UMNO memasuki Sabah dan merampas kuasa.

UMNO memasuki Sabah selepas memperdayakan USNO untuk menerima UMNO masuk ke Sabah. UMNO memang sudah lama berhasrat memasuki Sabah namun tidak berjaya kerana tidak diberi restu oleh pemimpin- pemimpin USNO. Hanya dengan hasutan UMNO kepada USNO, UMNO telah berjaya memasuki Sabah. “UMNO pernah berhasrat melebarkan sayapnya ke Sabah dengan jemputan dan ditaja oleh Datuk Muhammad Dun Banir bersama rakan-rakannya pada tahun 1980an, namun impian parti itu tidak terlaksana kerana tidak mendapat sokongan dari USNO, akhirnya UMNO menangguhkan niatnya untuk sementara waktu. Perselisihan faham di antara USNO dan kerajaan PBS pada tahun 1985/1986 telah diintai oleh UMNO dan menghasut USNO supaya tidak mempercayai Kerajaan PBS, seterusnya mendesak pemimpin USNO untuk membenarkan mereka masuk ke Sabah dalam keadaan “menangguk air di air keruh (ambil kesempatan)”.- Datu Badarudin Tun Datu Mustapha sempena Deklarasi Semporna dalam Rapat Umum USNO 50 Tahun pada 29hb Januari 2012.

 #Akibat hilang kuasa kemerdekaan:
  1. UMNO menjajah Sabah
  2. Sistem penggiliran Ketua Menteri, dengan mudah diguna sebagai pancing
  3. Kerusi DUN dan Parlimen Sabah dikuasai UMNO
  4. Perlantikan Ketua Menteri oleh Kuala Lumpur
  5. Kabinet pusat dimonopoli oleh Persekutuan Tanah Melayu
  6. Sabah dan Sarawak tidak penting lagi kerana Persekutuan Tanah Melayu (Malaya)menguasai lebih 2/3 kerusi parlimen (166 di Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, 25 kerusi di Sabah dan 30 kerusi Sarawak)
  7. Masalah PTI semakin bertambah
  8. Sabah menjadi negeri termiskin
  9. Sabah dan Sarawak menjadi negeri yang ke 12 dan ke 13.
  10. Rasuah, politik wang dan salah guna kuasa berleluasa
  11. Pemimpin Sabah kehilangan semangat untuk berjuang.
  12. Pemimpin Sabah tidak mampu membuat keputusan tanpa restu daripada Kuala Lumpur.
  13. Beratus ribu hektar keluasan tanah di Sabah diserahkan kepada pihak Semenanjung melalui FELDA. Tabung Haji, Yayasan Selangor, Yayasan Melaka dan Syarikat-Syarikat Gergasi Persekutuan Tanah Melayu.
Dengan kehadiran UMNO di Sabah, manipulasi mereka semakin rancak. Manipulasi yang hebat dilakukan UMNO di Sabah adalah dengan merampas kuasa pemerintahan daripada PBS. Walaupun dengan janji Anuar Ibrahim membangun Sabah menjadikan Sabah Baru dalam masa 100 hari, Barisan Nasivonal pimpinan UMNO di Sabah gagal memenangi pilihan raya umum pada tahun 1994. 

Selepas keputusan pilihanraya pada tahun 1994 diumumkan dengan PBS (bersama USNO) memenangi majoriti kerusi DUN, YB Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan dan Tun Mustapha bersama wakil-wakil rakyat PBS (bersama USNO) telah pergi ke istana untuk mengangkat sumpah sebagai barisan menteri kabinet Sabah yang baru. Namun mereka tidak dapat memasuki istana kerana pintu masuk ditutup atas arahan Datuk Megat Junid, Timbalan Menteri Hal Ehwal Dalam Negeri, Malaysia ketika itu, menyebabkan semua wakil rakyat termasuk Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan dan Tun Mustapha terpaksa 'berkurung' di rumah kediaman rasmi Presiden PBS, YB Datuk Joseph

Mari sampaikan kebenaran ini kepada diri-sendiri dahulu, keluarga, sahabat handai dan rakan-rakan serta semua orang di kampung dan bandar...

Ranau earthquake: If Najib truly loves Sabah...

OUTSPOKEN: It takes a natural disaster like the powerful earthquake that literally shook Mout Kinabalu on June 5, to give a real test on the leadership qualities of Malaysia's national and state leaders.

If Prime Minister Najib Razak truly believes in his own slogan of 1Malaysia and considers Sabah as a “fixed deposit” state, then he would have reacted very differently when the 5.9 magnitude earthquake occurred at 7.15am that day with its epicentre about 15km north of Ranau town.

As soon as he was told of the incident and briefed on the seriousness of the situation he, as head of the central government, should have dropped everything else immediately and paid full attention to the crisis and ensured that the government responded to the crisis promptly and appropriately. 

In his capacity as chairman of the National Security Council, he should have realized the gravity and magnitude of the disaster by quickly declaring it as a national disaster zone, so that the full force of top level authority would come into play. 

Once that was done, the state security committee headed by chief minister Musa Aman, who technically is responsible for the officials in charge at the crisis centre on the ground, would have the administrative power to execute all necessary search and rescue (SAR) operations without delay. 

It was truly a case of grave crisis and emergency on a national scale, considering that lives of such a large number of Malaysian citizens as well as nationals from so many foreign countries were at risk that day. 

It was a frightening thought; having 137 climbers, including young children, being stranded close to the top of the mountain that is cold and windy. They must also be in a state of shock and fear, having just experienced the powerful earthquake. There were also 30 or more Malaysian mountain guides with the climbers. 

At times of emergency such as this, top concern must surely be to save lives. 

If given the power from the top national leaders, officials at the crisis centre could have the ability to mobilise helicopters and other support services from the armed forces, police, private aviation companies and other organisations without question and within the first couple of hours. 

A distinct advantage was that it occurred early in the morning, leaving the emergency units about 11 daylight hours to plan and execute their SAR operations. For, in the far east state of Sabah, it gets dark as early as 6.30pm. 

From the national point of view, Mt Kinabalu, the centre of all attention that day, is the nation's icon tourism spot. Many promotional materials of Tourism Malaysia, including its TV commercials prominently feature the mountain. 

This icon, reputed for having the tallest peak (at 4,095m above sea level) in Southeast Asia, is also a Unesco World Heritage Site and the 20th most prominent mountain in the world.

The disaster could not have struck at a worst time. It was during school holidays, one of the peak seasons for local and foreign climbers, including young pupils in their early teens, mostly having their first experience in mountain climbing. 

Did Najib see the situation in these lights and act accordingly? Obviously not, for he went ahead with his travel plans for Saudi Arabia, which according to him, “involving meetings with members the Saudi royal family”. 

Surely the Saudi royal family would be gracious enough to accept and excuse him for having to change travel plans due a state of emergency at home. 

Another error in judgement was when Musa declared June 8 as “a day of mourning” for Sabah calling on the people to fly flags at half-mast in the state. The appropriate mark of remembrance for the four mountain guides and other Malaysians who died as a result of the quake is a national day of mourning.

It was a national affair, not state. Has Najib forgotten that citizens in Sabah are Malaysians, equal to those anywhere in the country? Whither the 1Malaysia concept? 

By contrast, the Singapore government saw it fit to declare a national day of mourning for the two teachers and eight pupils from Tanjong Katong Primary School who died as a result of the earthquake. They did not say that the mourning was for that school alone, but for the whole nation. 

Reflecting further on the dire consequences of disasters that Malaysians in Sabah have to bear resulting from the earthquake, somehow the words of a Czech television host on such disasters spring to mind. 

“We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn't have to be lost if there was enough disaster preparedness,” said Petra Nemcova, a victim of the Indian Ocean earthquake and subsequent tsunami in 2004. 

In many ways, the Malaysian Government was ill prepared for the Ranau earthquake; not having sufficient knowledge nor enough disaster preparedness to deal promptly and efficiently with the catastrophic situation. 

It is often said that prevention is better than cure. True, but good advice such as this is not always followed. Regrets usually come after the fact. 

A few days after the earthquake came the disclosure that the Minerals and Geoscience Department in Sabah had proposed to the federal government in 2013 to install an earthquake monitoring system that includes the installation of GPS monuments along fault lines in the vicinity of Mt Kinabalu. 

The request for an allocation of RM7 million for implementation of the project was turned down. 

Alexander Yan, former director of the department, told The Borneo Post on June 8 that had the proposal been given the nod, lives could have been saved from the earthquake that claimed 18 lives and caused injury to many climbers and guides.

Now the Malaysian Government has announced an allocation of RM10 million just for rehabilitation works on the mountain. 

Other costs such as relief measures and the rebuilding of public and private infrastructures in and around Kudasang and Ranau that are damaged by the quake and the subsequent mudslides in the past week that caused further havoc would go way beyond that figure. 

As seen in other cases of natural disasters elsewhere in the country, a happy and positive sign that emerged from the Ranau earthquake was the spontaneous response of many individuals, community groups, NGOs and service organisations, in showing unity, love and care through their various acts of charity. 

This Malaysian bond shown in the last two weeks by the ordinary folks in time of need, pain, sorrow and suffering is most admirable. 

Sarawakian Datuk Joseph Leong Sai Ho, who has been living in Sabah since 1966, has his eye on all things Borneo.
