Time to reverse the flow of oil revenue, says SAS

Dateline 2018-06-13, Borneo Post:

Solidariti Anak Sarawak (SAS) founder Peter John Jaban said it is time for Sarawak to consider keeping 95 per cent of oil revenue for the state and give the balance to the federal government.

“It is time to reverse the flow – with Sarawak giving the federal government five per cent of the oil revenue and keeping the remaining 95 per cent for the people of Sarawak,” he said.

Speaking to reporters after a gathering at the Kuching Waterfront yesterday to show support for the Sarawak government, Peter John said that revenue from oil sits at the heart of the autonomy issue which has been the principal driver of policy and feeling in Sarawak over the past few years.

“The question is simple – whether the people of the Borneo states should receive the benefits of the resources that have been part of their territory since long before Malaysia was even conceived.
