Sarawak will announce Petros concessions as soon as GE14 is called, says analyst

Professor James Chin delivers the lecture 'The Malaysian Federation: Views from East Malaysia", yesterday evening. – The Malaysian Insight pic, August 29, 2017.
SARAWAK is expected to publicise oil concessions, having settled a legal question over ownership of a continental shelf off its shores, as soon as the general election is called, said a prominent political analyst.

Professor James Chin, director at the Asia Institute at the University of Tasmania, was speaking on newly-formed state oil company  Petroleum Sarawak Bhd (Petros), whose board members were announced by the state government last Friday.

"Sarawak recently set up Petros because it is preparing for the day the federal government will recognise that the continental shelf belongs to Sarawak, so there's a commercial entity ready to take over immediately.

"But the reason why all this is not announced because the election is not yet announced. Once the election is announced, all these concessions will be announced to the public," he said. 

Chin spoke at a lecture, "The Malaysian Federation: Views from East Malaysia", organised by the Jeffery Cheah Institute on Southeast Asia at Sunway University yesterday evening.

On the recently publicised Sarawak-sponsored trip to London to obtain documents regarding the Malaysia Agreement 1963, Chin said it would yield little else aside from clarity on ownership of the continental shelf.

"The important thing to remember is that the only legal document is the Malaysia Act. What they actually went to London for was to look at background papers. They were trying to understand the process of how all the reports were drafted. Who said what and all that sort of thing. 

"But legally speaking, the background papers have no meaning... What's important is the actual agreement signed. They're looking for the background papers and what they discovered was that; yes, there was a decision taken by the British government that says that the continental shelf belongs to the states of Sarawak and Sabah."

Last year, the Bornean states each set up a technical committee on the devolution of authority. At the federal level, a parallel committee is headed by foreign minister Anifah Aman, brother of Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman. 

"So the (technical committees) are actually a good start. But the thing is that they have yet to hold any public hearing and I feel that public hearings are very important to get the pulse of the people, what they think of this issue," Chin said. 

He added that there were three groups of people with varying opinions on autonomy in East Malaysia.  

"The first one is very simple to understand. It has got a huge Facebook presence. It's called Sabah Sarawak Keluar Malaysia. We are fed up, nothing is happening. No point to negotiations. Bye-bye. 

"The second group is the other polarity, which is we've not done too badly. It's a question of tweaking the Federation to get a better deal. 

"And of course, the third group are the fence sitters, who, depending on the issue, will fall either way. But there is also a unique political class in Sabah and Sarawak. The elites there. They've basically not changed since independence. They also, themselves, must come to a consensus. 

Chin said the political class should return to the 20- and 18-point agreements submitted by the Cobbold Commission to "maybe come to sort of a bare minimum... in terms of moving forward."

He added that East Malaysians should not hope for constitutional amendments.

"The federal government, or basically Umno, is not willing to make any constitutional changes. When they talk about devolution of power, they're talking administrative power given to the capitals of Kuching and Kota Kinabalu to decide. An example of that is the selection of teachers. 

"The federal government is willing to negotiate everything except secession. They do not actually mind passing back some of the powers. Because Umno is not in Sarawak and in Sabah, Umno is sort of in name only. They require the MPs from both sides in order to stay in power. So they're quite willing to negotiate. It doesn't cost them a lot, in terms of regulation and internal administrative matters, to push these powers back to Sabah and Sarawak," he said.

Chin said autonomy is a highly "emotive issue" for East Malaysians. 

"But we should not allow history to hold us back. Although we should learn to understand the MSCC (Malaysia Solidarity Consultative Committee) process, the Cobbold Commission process, the IGC (Inter-Governmental Committee process report), they should actually be used as a historical starting point. But they should not be used as the final point to negotiate. 

"What Sabah and Sarawak would get largely would depend on the political consensus in the individual states of Sabah and Sarawak and only if they come to a clear agreement, like what Sarawak is doing now. A clear agreement, that they must assert themselves. They will get a better deal from Putrajaya," Chin said. 

Chin said East Malaysians seeking autonomy did not have the luxury of time.  

"A final point that I want to make is that the window of opportunity for Sabah and Sarawak to do something about the state of the Federation, as they understand it, is limited to five-year cycles. 

"In other words, in the next election, if Umno does very well on this side (Peninsular Malaysia) and it doesn't really need Sabah and Sarawak to stay in power, then they're back to square one. So the window of opportunity is actually very, very limited," he said. 

Chin added that Barisan Nasional will pick up "a minimum 31 to 32" seats out of a total of 57 seats in East Malaysia, including Labuan. 

"If they fall below that, please SMS me quickly," he said. – August 29, 2017.

Sabah DAP’s No. 2 quits

KEPAYAN assemblyman Dr Edwin Bosi has quit from DAP and resigned as Sabah DAP deputy chairman due to differences with state party chairman Stephen Wong.

In a statement today, Edwin said he had submitted his resignation letter to Sabah DAP secretary on August 24.

“After consulting with leaders of Penampang DAP branch, I decided to tender my resignation as a member of DAP and also as Sabah DAP deputy chairman effective August 31.

“As deputy chairman, my difference with chairman Stephen Wong is miles apart. It is only fair that as reconciliation is not possible, I have to withdraw to allow the harmony within DAP Sabah to persist. The failed 'Shanghai handshake' is the cornerstone of my decision to leave.

“Indeed, the Sabah DAP Committee under Stephen Wong had at first wanted to sack me. Then, I was referred to the DAP National Disciplinary Committee which handed down a three-month suspension (ends tomorrow) on me without even calling me to defend myself before the said committee,” he added.

However, Edwin said he bore no grudges against DAP and the national leaders.

“For now I will remain as an independent lawmaker until I decide on a local political party that will fight and struggle for the indigenous people and the people of Sabah,” he said. – Bernama, August 30, 2017.

A call for re-study of Sabah ties with Malaysia The Straits Times, 17 August 1965

A call for re-study of Sabah ties with Malaysia

JESSELTON, Monday. The United National Pasokmomogun Kadazan Organisation (Upko), headed  by the Minister for Sabah Affairs and Civil Defence, Dato Donald Stephens, today called for a reexamination of arrangements made in respect of Sabah's entry into Malaysia in view of Singapore's separation from the federation.

A statement issued by the party, following last night's national council meeting, said a six-man standing committee had been appointed to carry out this reexamination.

The Upko national council expressed "grave concern" over the Central Government's future relations with Sabah "since Sabah was not consulted before the irrevocable decision was taken to separate Singapore from Malaysia" and since the party believed that Sabah's was very closely linked with that of other malaysian States and Singapore.


The statement added: "Deep regret was expressed at the way Sabah was treated and the feeling was unanimous that as one of four component parts whch got together to form Malaysia, Sabah had every right to be consulted before such a far-reaching decision was taken."

The council last night considered the implications of Singapore's separation. Dato Stephens, who presided over the meeting, gave a full account of what transpired in Kuala Lumpur in connection with the decision.

Dato Stephens offered to resign from the party's leadership but the council felt he was "in no way to be blamed for what had happened," neither was the State Government.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sabtu. - 9 August, 1965: suatu hari bersejarah dan hari pengumuman Tengku Abdul Rahman mengenai pemisahan Singapura yang menggemparkan seluroh ra'ayat Malaysia.

Hari ini, pengarang berita kumpulan akhbar2 Straits Times, Felix Abisheganaden yang menginterbiu segala tokoh2 yang bersangkutan dalam drama itu, melaporkan peristiwa2 yang membawa kapada perpisahan itu.

Tengku telah masok berbuat di-Landon Clinic pada hari Juma'at 25 June, hari terakhir sidang Perdana2 Menteri Commonwealth.

Sedang ia berbaring kata Tengku, fikiran-nya mela-yang kembali ka-tanah ayer dan masa'alah2 yang menghadapi Malaysia.

Banyak Masa

Banyak masa untok berfkir, kata Tengku lagi, walau pun ramai yang datang menziarahi-nya.

Sa-telah empat hari dihospital itu dan kesihatannya puleh. Tengku pun menchatitkan segala2 yang di-fikirkan-nya itu sa-chara mendalam.

Kata Tengku: "Saya telah menimbangkan burok baik-nya Singapura di-dalam Malaysia."

Tengku menunjukkan beberapa kajang kertass chata-tan-nya itu.

Sa-telah memperhitong segala perkara, nyata-nya keputusan-nya: "Demi ke-pentingan dan kesejahteraan Malaysia dan Singapura, le-beh baik-lah kedua negeri itu berpisah."

Tengku menchapai keputusan yang "menyayat hati" itu pada 29 June.

Pada hari itu juga di-Kuala Lumpur, Timbalan PM Tun Razak sedang bertemu dengan Perdana Menteri Singapura, Lee Kuan Yew, untok chuba menyelesaikan perselisehan.

Rundingan2 mereka itu "terang terang" tetapi ti-dak ada terchapai kemaju-an dalam usaha menyele-saikan sengketa antara Ke-rajaan2 Singapura dan Pu-sat.

Kedua2-nya pun memu-tuskan untok menunggu Tengku balek dari London.


Pada ketika itu juga di-London. bekas Menteri Pembangunan Negara Singapura. Tuan Lim Kim San berada di-London, Kata Tengku:

"Saya pun memberitahu-nya perasaan saya me-mengenai Singapura. Tidak ada siapa pun boleh mengatakan bahawa Kerajaan Singapura tidak di-beritahu awal2 akan perasaan kita itu."

Pada 1 July. ketika maseh dalam hospital, Tengku pun menulis surat kapada Tun Razak menyatakan perasa-an-nya itu dan meminta Tun Razak berunding de-ugan mennteri2 kanan.

Ayer mata Tengku mele-leh ketika ia menyerahkan surat itu kapada setiausaha peribadi-nya. Haji Nik Ha-san, untok di-poskan.

Pada 22 July, ketika bere-hat di-France, Tengku me-nerima surat jawapan dari Tun Razak.

Surat itu memberitahu Tengku bahawa Menteri2 kanan itu setuju penoh de-ngan Tengku bahawa Si-ngapura hendak-lah ber-pisah dari Maaysia.

Tiga hari kemudian-nya, pada 25 July, Tengku me-nulis balek kapada Tun Razak dan mengarahkan-nya supaya "meneruskan persiapan2 dari segi un-dang2 dan pindaan2 kapada Perlembagaan."

Tun Razak segera men-jawab dan memberitahu ia akan memanggil sidang pada 9 August.

Rang undang2

Rang undang2 untok meminda Perlembangaan, Tun Razak memberitahu Tengku, akan di-bentang-kan hari itu dan di-lulus-kan hari itu juga.

Tengku setuju dan me-ngumumkan ia akan balek ka-tanah ayer sa-minggu sa-belum sidang Parlemen.

Dengan tidak berlengah2 lagi, Tun Razak mengarah-kan Peguam Negara, Inche Kadir Yusof menggubal perjanjian pemisahan dan rang undang2 pindaan itu.

Ini telah di-lakukan oleh Inche Kadir sa-telah berunding dengan pehak2 berkenaan di-Singapura.

Dalam masa tukar menu-kar surat yang bersejarah dan perundingan2 rahsia itu, tidak ada sa-siapa pun di - Singapura memberi angin2 pepechahan yang bakal berlaku itu.

PAP di-Singapura terus dengan perjuangan Ma-laysian Malaysia-nya.

Pemimpin2 Perikatan membalas kenyataan2 PAP, terutama Menteri Penerangan dan Penyiaran, Inche Senu bin Abdul Rahman.

Pada 28 July, Tun Razak terbang ka-Singapura dan menyeru Kerajaan Singapura "berbimbing tangan" dengan Kerajaan Pusat un-tok menjalankan rancha-ngan2 pembangunan bagi ra'ayat.

Lawatan itu merupakan usaha2 terakhir Tun Razak untok menyelesaikan seng-keta antara Kerajaan Si-ngapura dengan kerajaan Pusat.

Hingga ka-sa'at2 akhir itu pun pemimpin2 Singapura dan Malaysia maseh berharap bahawa dengan kembali-nya Tengku maka segala2-nya akan dapat di-atasi dan rang undang2 pindaan Perlembagaan itu tidak di-kirim kapada pen-chitak Kerajaan.

Tengku, dalam keadaan sihat dan riang gembira, tiba di-Singapura pada jam 3.50 dinihari 5 August dan menunggu-nya di-padang terbang ia-lah Tuan Lim Kim San.

Tuan Lee Kuan Yew, ketika itu berada di-Cameron High-lands.

Tengah hari esok-nya, Tengku terbang ka-Kuala Lumpur dan dalam sidang akhbar memberi-tahu ia akan menemui Tuan Lee.

Esok-nya, Juma'at 6 August, Tengku bertemu dengan Tun Razak, Dato Ismail, Tuan Tan Siew Sin dan Dato Sambanthan di-Residency.


Laporan Tun Razak mengenai usaha2-nya untok berdamai de-ngan pemimpin2 Singapura te-lah di-binchangkan.

Tidak ada lagi jalan untok me-nyelesaikan sengketa itu.

Lewat malam itu, pemimpin2 Singapura pun di-beritahu akan keputusan berpisah itu.

Pada 7 August, Dato Dr.Ismail pun menulis surat kapada Pesurohjaya Polis Singapura, Tuan John le Cain:

"Dengan ini saya memeren-tah Tuan mulai 1 August 1965 supaya menerima perentah2 dari Tuan Lee Kuan Yew, Perdana Menteri Singapura untok mem-bolehkan ia menjalankan tang-gongjawab-nya bagi keselamatan dalam negeri Singapura."

Pada hari itu juga, Tengku mengarahkan Brigadier S.M.Alsagoff, Panglima Brigade ke-4 Tentera Persekutuan di-Singa-pura:

"Sepeninggalan Tun, saya me-ngambil tanggongjawab penoh untok memberi perentah ini.

"Mulai 9 August 1965, tuan hendak-lah menerima perentah2 dari Tuan Lee Kuan Yew, PErdana Menteri Singapura kerana dari sekarang ia menguasai per-tahanan dan keselamatan Singapura.

"Perentah2 lain akan di-kirim selanjut-nya."


Pada jam 11.30 pagi, Dr.Goh Keng Swee manalipon pejabat Tengku untok mengator perte-muan antara Tuan Lee dan Tengku. Pertemuan itu pun di-ator.

Tuan Lee tiba di-Residency dengan motokar pada jam 12.30 tengah hari. Bersama Tengku ketika itu ia-lah Tun Razak, Dato Ismail, Tuan Tan Siew Sin dan Dato Sambanthan.

Tuan Lee mula-nya minta bertemu dengan Tengku saja dulu dan mereka pun masok ka-bilek lain. Mereka berunding sa-la-ma 30 minit.

Sa-telah keluar, Tengku me-minta kertas dan atas permin-taan Tuan Lee menulis sa-puchok surat kapada Dr.Toh Chin Chye, Timbalan PM Singapura. 

Kata Tengku: "Tuan Lee meminta saya menulis sa-berapa rengkas yang boleh. Itu-lah se-bab-nya saya tidak menjelaskan maksud chakap saya manakala saya memberitahu Dr.Toh sa-perti berikut:

"....Kalau saya chukop kuat dan dapat menguasai keadaan sa-penoh-nya, mungkin saya dapat melambatkan tindakan, te-tapi saya tidak..."

Menurut Tengku, Tuan Lee memberitahu-nya bahawa Dr.Toh dan Tuan S.Rajaratnam (bekas Menteri kebudayaan) tidak setuju dengan pemisa-han Singapura dan mereka enggan menandatangani per-janjian pemisahan.

Tuan Lee memberi jaminan bahawa dengan surat Tengku itu, maka Dr. Toh dan Tuan Rajaratnam akan menandatangani perjanjian pemisahan itu.

"Itu-lah sebab-nya saya me-nulis surat itu," Tengku men-jelaskan.

Terima surat

Satelah menerima surat itu, Tuan Lee meminta Tengku memberikan sa-buah kapalter-bang Angkatan Udara di-Raja Malaysia untok kegunaan-nya. Kata-nya ia akan mendapat-kan tandatangan Menteri-nya dan memulangkan perjanjian itu melalui setiausaha-nya hari itu juga. Tengku bersetuju.

Pada hari Ahad perjanjian itu, lengkap dengan tandata-ngan semua Menteri2 Singapura pun di-kembalikan ka-pada Tengku, pada sa-belah pagi-nya.

Pada jam 10 pagi, Majlis tertinggi Perikatan bersidang.

Salepas sidang itu, pada jam 11.05 pagi, Menteri2 Besar dan ketua2 Menteri berkumpul da-lam sa-buah belek jawatan-kuasa di-Dewan Tengku Abdul Rahman.

Tengku pun mengumumkan pemisahan Singapura dari Malaysia dan memberi kete-rangan mengenai perjanjian itu serta rang undang2 yang akan di-bentangkan kapada Parlemen esok-nya.

Sapanjang hari Ahad itu, Pesurohjaya Tinggi British, Lord Head berkali2 chuba menghubungi Tengku tetapi tidak berhasil.

Beliau di-beritahu bahawa pada malam itu, Menteri2 akan menghadhiri satu majlis jamuan. Beliau perge ka-majlis itu lalu berchakap dengan Tun Razak.

Lord Head

Lord Head datang ka-majlis jamuan itu tanpa di-undang kerana hendak berchakan de-ngan Tun Razak.

Ketua Menteri Sabah Tuan Peter Lo yang tidak sempat hadhir sidang Majlis Tertinggi Perikatan tiba pada jam 11.15 malam.

Sa-buah motorkar kerajaan menunggu-nya di-padang ter-bang dan membawa-nya ka-majlis jamuan.
Tun Razak pun memberita-hu-nya akan keputusan memi-sahkan Singapura.

Kata Tuan Lo: "Saya terke-jut sekali dan hampir2 tak perchaya...."

Sejurus salepas tengah ma-malam, beliau menalipon Men-teri2-nya di-Sabah atas hal itu. Mereka memberi kuasa penoh kapada-nya untok "membuat apa saja yang di-fikirkan baik sa-kali."

Pada hari Ithnin 9 August, jam 8.45 pagi, Lord Head da-tang ka-Residency dan mera-yu2 kapada Tengku supaya menanggohkan keputusan itu "sakurang2-nya sa-hari."

Beliau menyampaikan ka-pada Tengku satu perutusan dari Perdana Menteri British, Tuan Harold Wilson yang me-nyatakan perasaan "keham-paan amat sangat" atas hal itu.

Tengku memberitahu Lord Head bahawa segala2-nya telah selesai." Tidak ada apa satu pun yang boleh mengubah ke-putusan kami."

Lord Head kemudian menarek diri dari Residency.

Pada jam 9.15 pagi, Pesuroh-Jaya Tinggi Australia, Tuan Tom Crithchley pula menemui Tengku.

Beliau juga merayu kapada Tengku supaya menanggohkan keputusan itu, tetapi ia juga tidak berjaya.

Pada jam 9.30 pagi, semua ahli2 Parlemen Perikatan ber-kumpul di-bilek Jawatankuasa nombor satu bangunan Parle-men.

Tengku pun memberitahu mereka keputusan yang telah di-ambil mengenai Singapura. Mereka harus mengundi un-tok menjaminkan kelulusan undi dua pertiga sa-bagaimana di-perlukan menurut Perlem-bagaan.

Tengku menyeru pemimpin2 Sabah dan Sarawak supaya menyokong rang undang2 pin-daan Perlembagaan itu.

Tanpa sokongan mereka, Kerajaan tentu tidak mendapat kelulusan rang undang2 itu.

Ketika locheng permulaan sidang Dewan Ra'ayat berbunyi pada jam 10 pagi itu, maka di-Singapura Tuan Lee Kuan Yew mengumumkan pe-misahan Singapura dari Malaysia.

Rang undang2 itu di-debat dalam Dewan Ra'ayat dan lulus dengan 126 undi. Tidak ada yang menentang.


Sidang tergempar Dewan negara pada tengah hari itu meluluskan juga rang undang2 pindaan Perlembagaan itu sa-telah berdebat selama dua jam.

Dalam satu sidang akhbar di-Singapura, Tuan Lee berkata Kerajaan-nya akan bekerjasa-ma dengan Kerajaan Pusat.

Di-Kuala Lumpur, Tengku menyatakan harapan bahawa Singapura akan mengechap keamanan, kesejahteraan dan kema'amoran.

Kata Tengku: "Kita sedia menolong saberapa yang boleh Saya yakin bahawa dalam berbedzaan kita akan bersua dengan titek2 pertemuan dan seterus-nya menchapai per-paduan. Sebagaimana kata pepetah: kalau jauh, berbau wangi..."
