Legal and moral duty of Sabah MPs to act: Jeffrey

Dateline 2013-10-13,Daily Express:

It is the legal duty and moral obligation of the Sabah Government and every Sabah MP to take immediate steps and by all available means to regain Sabah’s oil ownership, said Sabah Star Chief Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan.

Commenting on the public debate between Tan Sri Harris Salleh and Datuk Yong Teck Lee at the Sabah Golf and Country Club on Friday night, he said the “explanation” of Harris was that he had no choice but to sign the 1976 Oil Agreement with Petronas and receive five per cent cash payment for Sabah’s oil as the Federal Government had stated that Sabah’s oil found offshore belonged to the Federal Government and signing and getting five per cent was better than getting nothing at all.
