Alvin! Correction! The concubine offsprings are not legitimate 'heirs' of Sultan Sulu! Remember, Sultanate Sulu gave away his rights! It's not a lease but cede of rights to claim Sabah forever! So pay those concubine offsprings and move on!
Instead of a lease, the lands were ceded (given up) to another party.
Given up but with a yearly payment of a fixed amount. One thousand Dollars 100 years ago is much small today.
1. The former AG's clarification is very clear. 2. Will a normal person can give up such a big piece of land at any point of time? 3. Did they understand the word "inflation" and "appreciation of the value of the lands" ?
The 1878 Grant is the sole and exclusive basis of the claim by the descendants of the Sultan of Sulu. That Grant ceded ownership and sovereignty in perpetuity of parts of present day Sabah to the British North Borneo Company. It was a legacy of Empire. It was similar to the grant of Bombay by the Portuguese to the British in 1661 and the ceding of New York (New Amsterdam) by the Dutch to the British in 1664. Nearer home, Penang in 1786 by the Sultanate of Kedah and Singapore in 1819 by the Sultanate of Johore: in both cases to the British. In none of these cases is there a similar claim in the 21st Century arising from the original grant in perpetuity. The Sulu claim must therefore be viewed in the context of empire and colonialism. The transfer of other peoples’ lands by one empire to another was commonplace in centuries past; a legal challenge by arbitration centuries later is novel.
As stated clearly, it cannot be challenge by arbitration! Let Sultan Sulu 'heirs' sue till bankrupt! Malaysia willing to pay the outstandings! So there's no dispute at all! It's up to the illegimate offsprings to take it or sue in futiity!
The recent public discussion on the “Seizure Notice” issued in Luxembourg against assets belonging to Petronas to satisfy the US$14.92 billion award by the Spanish Arbitrator Gonzalo Stampa has been marred by a fog of disinformation and lies. The Malaysian public is entitled to truthful disclosure of matters concerning the dispute between the Sulu Claimants and the Government of Malaysia, which led to this massive but completely illegitimate award.
STORY: Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday warned U.S. President Joe Biden against "playing with fire" over Taiwan, as Beijing's concerns mounted over a possible visit by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the Chinese-claimed island.
In a phone call that lasted over two hours, Chinese state media said Xi told Biden that the United States should abide by the "one-China principle" and stressed that China firmly opposed Taiwanese independence and interference of external forces.
Chinese state media, quoted Xi as telling Biden, “Those who play with fire will only get burnt…(We) hope the U.S. side can see this clearly.”
According to a White House statement, Biden told Xi that U.S. policy on Taiwan had not changed and that the United States strongly opposes unilateral efforts to change the status quo or undermine peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.
Beijing has issued escalating warnings about repercussions should Pelosi - a Democrat like Biden - visit Taiwan, which says it is facing increasing Chinese military and economic threats.
Alsvin! No! Malaysia didn't! Just a delay! In fact full repayment with 10% interest! Bare in mind, the Sulus rejected it through their lawyers! Luxembourg verdict was totally uncalled for! It's totally injustice!
