Dateline 2017-04-13, FMT:
Chief Minister Abang Johari Openg should be firm with Petronas that it must consult Sarawak when deciding on its onshore and offshore blocks of oil and gas, Batu Lintang assemblyman See Chee How said.
See, the state PKR vice chairman, also urged the state government to consider investing in and taking ownership of the development of the petroleum resources within Sarawak’s territorial boundary.
The Borneo Post quoted See as saying it was unacceptable for Petronas to continue ignoring Sarawak’s assertion of rights to resources within the state’s territorial boundary.
“I am seriously contemplating to move a private member’s motion on this matter at the coming Sarawak State Assembly sitting scheduled from May 11 to 22, and I am hopeful that my fellow ADUNs (state assemblypersons) will be supportive of it, to take another important step towards fulfilling Tan Sri Adenan Satem’s, and all Sarawakians’, aspiration that Sarawak’s inherent sovereign and autonomous powers be respected by the Federation.”
