No lawsuit, but Petronas must pay what is owed to Sabah

Dateline 2020-007-16, The Malaysian Reserve:

SABAH state government is not planning to file a lawsuit against Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas), but the company should pay what is owed to the state, says Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.

Mohd Shafie told The Malaysian Reserve in a recent interview that Petronas should have afforded Sabah the same treatment as Sarawak, based on the court ruling.

The Kuching High Court ruled on March 13 this year that Sabah and Sarawak have the right under the Federal Constitution to impose sales tax on petroleum products.
