THERE ARE QUITE A FEW OUT THERE WHO BELIEVE SABAH & SARAWAK HAVE NO RIGHT TO GET OUT OF MALAYSIA.

THERE ARE QUITE A FEW OUT THERE WHO BELIEVE SABAH & SARAWAK HAVE NO RIGHT TO GET OUT OF MALAYSIA.

BUT IF THEY ARE PRESSED FOR A GOOD REASON THEY CAN NEVER GIVE ONE.

THE ANSWER IS IN THE UN DECLARATION on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 14 December 1960. 

In its substantive law stipulations, the Declaration postulates what may be described as ordering principles, intended to guide the progressive development of international law in accordance with the General Assembly’s own explicit mandate under Article 13, paragraph 1 (a), of the Charter of the United Nations:

- that the subjection of peoples to alien subjugation, domination and exploitation constitutes a denial of fundamental human rights (art. 1);

- that all peoples have the right to self-determination, but that this necessarily includes the right freely to determine their political status and freely to pursue their economic, social and cultural development (art. 2);

- that all armed action or repressive measures of all kinds directed against dependent peoples shall cease (art. 4);

- that immediate steps shall be taken, in United Nations Trust and Non-Self-Governing Territories or all other territories which have not yet attained independence, to transfer all powers to the peoples of those territories (art. 5).

All the above 4 declarations apply to Sabah and Sarawak

1. Both resource rich territories and peoples have been subject to 49 years of "alien subjugation, domination and exploitation"- reducing them to be be poorest "states of Malaysia.

2. Sabahans & Sarawakians should have the right to be free from Malayan colonial domination, to determine their political status and freely to pursue their economic, social and cultural development

3. UMNO BB has used both armed action or repressive measures of all kinds directed against dependent peoples over 49 years.

4. Decolonization of Sabah and Sarawak must begin immediately.
