Don’t accept. It’s a matter of principle. Man does not live by bread alone.

One day, when the Borneo territories are free, they can sue the Federal gov’t/Petronas in an overseas jurisdiction where they have assets.

The ruling can be registered in all other jurisdictions where they have assets.

The oil and gas resources in Borneo, it’s said, will run out in 15 years.

After that, the Federal gov’t/Petronas will “return” them to the Borneo territories. This is the supreme insult.

The court will explore the possibility that the Federal gov’t/Petronas/Mahathir may be desperately feigning collective amnesia to thwart attempts by others to get their hands on assets unlawfully held by them.

The court cannot be party to illegality.

The court will also determine that the Federal gov’t/Petronas virtually stole the oil and gas resources of the Borneo territories under the guise of emergency ordinances.

After the ordinances were repealed, the Federal gov’t/Petronas continued to “buat tak tahu” and continued to steal the oil and gas resources of the Borneo territories.

The Federal gov’t/Petronas belabour in the delusion that it’s like taking candy from a baby.

Again, the court cannot be party to illegality.

Mahathir’s cruel joke on Sabah and Sarawak?
