CM: Sabah will continue to pursue 20pc from Petronas


Dateline 2020-05-14, Malay Mail:

Petronas’ new agreement with Sarawak does not have any bearing on Sabah, who just imposed a 5 per cent sales tax on petroleum products beginning last month.

Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal said that the state was sticking to its 5 per cent sales tax while it continued to pursue a 20 per cent oil royalty deal with the federal government that it has been eyeing for decades.

“That’s their negotiations with Petronas. We’ve already imposed the sales tax. We have an understanding with them and other petroleum companies,” said Shafie when asked to comment on Sarawak’s new agreement with Petronas and the federal government.
