Sarawak to use documents found in London last year in Petronas suit


Dateline 2018-06-17, FMT:

Sarawak will use documents related to the 1963 Malaysia Agreement which were found in London last year as a reference in its fight for rights to oil and gas produced in its territory.

State Law, State-Federal Relations and Project Monitoring Assistant Minister Sharifah Hasidah Sayeed Aman Ghazali said the documents, discovered by a team of lawyers which she led, could serve as evidence on the state’s rights.

“We will definitely use the documents that we obtained in London; they are certified true copies not just photostated. These will be used to assist us as evidence later in court,” she said when asked about Sarawak’s preparations in facing Petronas’ attempt in the Federal Court to seek a declaration that the Petroleum Development Act 1974 was also valid for the petroleum industry in Malaysia.
