Give Sabah all its oil and gas revenue: Lind

Dateline 2019-02-25, Daily Express:

Senator Datuk Theodore Douglas Lind (pic) has urged that Sabah be given all its oil and gas revenue, instead of just 20pc, as announced by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir recently.
Speaking during a recent debate on the 11th Malaysia Plan Half-Term Study, Lind hailed Dr Mahathir’s announcement but said it should be 100pc because Acts of Parliament that gave powers to the Federal Government such as the Continental Shelf Act 1966 and Petroleum Mining Act 1966 (revised 1972), which existed during the emergency times, had been automatically nullified when the Agong’s emergency declaration on May 15, 1969 was voided by the Dewan Rakyat on Nov 14, 2011 and Dewan Negara on Dec 20, 2011.
