Sabah to emulate Sarawak in controlling oil and gas laws

Dateline 2018-09-10, FMT:

Sabah will look into bolstering laws involving exploration of oil and gas and mining activities in the state, following in the footsteps of its neighbour Sarawak which tightened controls over such matters in July.

Chief Minister Shafie Apdal said he would request the state attorney-general (AG) to look into the matter.

“We are looking into it but I was made to understand by the former AG that we do have that mineral enactment in Sabah. I will ask the (current) AG to look into the details, whether there’s any loopholes in that.
