Petronas’ statement arrogant, insensitive, says Abdul Karim

Dateline 2018-07-04, Borneo Post:

The recent press statement from Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) is described as a strongly-worded statement that is both arrogant and insensitive.

In the statement, Petronas maintains its claim over Sarawak’s oil and gas resources; that it has exclusive ownership of the petroleum resources in Malaysia, and that it is the sole regulator of the upstream sector in the country.

Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youths and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said the statement did not bode well with Sarawak and its people, and wondered if this was a new form of colonisation.
