Sabah NGO: No tricks please, it’s our oil!

Dateline 2014-06-27, FMT:

The UK-based Borneo’s Plight in Malaysia Foundation (BoPIM), a human rights organisation on Sabah, Sarawak rights issues, has expressed dismay that the national oil corporation Petronas and an extremist fringe group in the corridors of power are engaged in a war of words over who owns the country’s oil and gas resources.

“There are no two ways about it,” said BoPIM President Daniel John Jambun in a telephone call to FMT in Kota Kinabalu. “The oil and gas reserves in the country belong, by and large, to the people of Sabah and Sarawak and no one in the peninsula should imagine that it belongs exclusively to their community.”
