No change in Sabah stand-off amid reports of imminent attack

By |

TANJUNG LABIAN (LAHAD DATU) – The ongoing Sulu stand-off in this Sabah east coast district remains unchanged for the third week on Thursday.

Numerous reports have emerged of an imminent attack by security forces on the group. One report claimed that several soldiers came close to Kampung Tanduo where the followers of the Sulu Sultanate are holed up.

A heavy presence of security personnel was observed at various strategic locations surrounding the seaside village late Wednesday.

Sabah police also declined to comment if shots were fired in the area on Wednesday evening although nearby villagers claimed to have heard them.

Sulu group leader Rajah Muda Azzimudie Kiram told Philippines media that his men had fired warning shots after spotting what he claimed were six Malaysian security personnel entering the village.

While claiming to come to Sabah in peace, Azzimudie warned that his followers were willing to “fight to the death” if provoked.

        Sometimes illegitimate or unknown children will lay claim to an
        inheritance. A potential heir may be required to prove paternity for
        entitlement to an inheritance. In this case, the executor or attorney of
        the estate may force the purported heir to take a DNA test. Otherwise,
        the alleged heir would have no claim to the inheritance. Siblings can
        each be tested to verify that they share either the same father or
        mother. DNA samples can ibe extracted and tested from one or both of the
        parents even if they are deceased.

        In 1848 and 1851, the Spanish launched attacks on Balangingi and Jolo respectively. A peace treaty was signed on 30 April 1851 in which the sultan could only regain its capital if Sulu and its dependencies became a part of the Philippine Islands under the sovereignty of Spain. There were different understandings of this treaty, in which although the Spanish interpreted it as the sultan accepted Spanish sovereignty, the sultan took it as a friendly treaty amongst equals.International Court of Justice in 2003 nevertheless observes that, undisputedly, the Sultan of Sulu relinquished the sovereign rights over all his possessions in favour of Spain, based on Bases of Peace and Capitulation signed by Sultan of Sulu and Spain in Jolo on the 22 July 1878.

        Agbimuddin Kiram have denied reports from Kota Kinabalu that the heirs of the Sulu sultanate were dropping their claims on North Borneo.

        Lawyer Ulka Ulama told the Philippine Daily Inquirer by phone that “nobody has the power to drop the claim up to now.”

        “We do not have a sultan anymore, who has territory and government. The last sultanate existed up to 1936 only,” he said.

        Ulama said the claim of Datu Omar Ali Datu Backtiyal about securing the signatures of the nine heirs to the sultanate was not true either.

        “It will never happen. I have been a lawyer for the heirs of the sultanate and those recognized administrators of the sultanate for 40 years now,” he said.

        Ulama said it would be impossible for Backtiyal to secure the signatures of the heirs because they already died.

        “Those must be fake heirs. Only the administrators are living now,” he said.

        Among the recognized administrators is Datu Esmail Kiram of the Mora Napsa heir, according to Ulama.

        Reacting to the same report, which said that another claimant to the sultanate, Rodinood Julaspi Kiram II, also dropped his claim to Sabah, Ulama said he was one of those considered “fake.”

        “He said he descended from Sultan Jamalul Kiram II who has no known heir so he is not real also,” Ulama said.

        Ulama vowed to come out with an official statement in the next few days to dispute the Backtiyal claim and that of Rodinood.

        Nine “heirs” of the Sultan of Sulu have agreed to drop their claim on Sabah, saying they were now “willing to surrender their rights” to the North Bornean state.

        The Star newspaper quoted one Datu Omar Ali Datu Backtiyal as saying that he had obtained the signatures of the nine heirs of the late Sultan Mohamat Jamal Al Alam agreeing to relinquish their claim last year.

        Sabah claim, a footnote in a library

        Well, as far as this blog is concern, the so-called Sabah claim is just that — a claim; a footnote in a library of books.

        A footnote, therefore, cannot rise to claim to be the whole book.

        Let’s see… Sabah is being claimed by at least three parties — the Philippine government, Nur Misuari and the Sulu Sultan (whoever he is).

        I wonder why the preoccupation with Sabah when they could not even take care of their own backwater — those islands in the Sulu Sea.

        I guess it has got to do with looks. Sabah is beautiful and prosperous. Their backwater, though beautiful but due to decades of neglect, is no longer attractive.

        Tell you what, why don’t someone among the Sulu heirs make a reverse claim… ask the Philippine government to let go southern Philippines and then apply to join Malaysia as its 14th state?
        Then they can make one of the Sulu Sultans the Yang Dipertua Negeri Sulu and appoint someone from the area as the Chief Minister and form a whole cabinet.

        In 1658, the Sultan of Brunei awarded the Sultan of Sulu the entire land of Sabah for helping end the civil war in Brunei.  Thus, the Sultan of Sulu had become an “owner” and “landlord” for the property of Sabah.

        In 1878, the Sultan of Sulu initially rented Sabah to a private company called the British North Borneo Company.

        In 1946, the state of Great Britain (UK) fraudulently claimed sovereign rights over North Borneo (Sabah).

        In 1950, the UN denied Great Britain’s (UK) claim and passed a Resolution mandating all colonizing countries that the three modes of acquiring territories by means of discovery, conquest and occupation were no longer recognized as valid.

        In 1955, The Sultanate of Sulu officially terminated the 1878 Lease Agreement with the British North Borneo Company as well as the Company’s administering authority over North Borneo (Saba).

        In 1963 however, Great Britain (UK) and the Federation of Malaysia worked around these UN obstacles by signing the Acts recognizing the establishment of Federation of Malaysia that included the leased-territory of North Borneo as the New State of Sabah.

        However, this was submitted before the UN fraudulently by concealing and not informing the UN about the Terminated Rental Agreement between the Sultan of Sulu and the British North Borneo Company.

        When in fact, the 1878 agreement stated the following condition for terminating the agreement:

        “the grantees (British North Borneo Company) promised to pay as compensation to the Sultan (Sulu), his heirs or successors, the sum of 5,000 dollars per annum; and the said territories were thereby declared vested in the grantees, co-jointly, their heirs, associates, successors, or assigns, for as long as they should choose or desire to hold them”

        By submission of the British North Borneo Company’s choice to no longer desire to hold the territorial property, this agreement between BNBC to “rent” is legally terminated and cannot be granted to the Federation of Malaysia without a new agreement forged between Malaysia and the Sultan of Sulu in 1963.

        While the intimidation of power and military from the countries of the Federation of Malaysia and UK of Great Britain in hijacking the 1878 agreement between the Sultan of Sulu and the British North Borneo Company should not be an accepted form of sovereignty under international laws. This is fraud at an international level.

        Thus, since 1963, the Sultan of Sulu objected the state of Malaysia’s claim over Sabah and had asked the Philippine government for help through the UN by peaceful dialogs of resolving the Sabah dispute.  The results brought little traction and no success.

        Today 2013, after 50 years of being ignored, the Sultan of Sulu has decided to take matters into their own hands with the use of a more direct and effective approach…..the use of FORCE.

        Malaysia is renting Sabah, land property nearly the entire and enormous size of the land of Mindanao, owned by the Sultan of Sulu (including heirs) and the Philippines government (conditionally) at a “measly” price of just $1700 per year.

        Even I pay more than that under my Mobile Network Carrier through Sprint for my mobile smartphone.

        Essentially, a “country” initially disguised as a “company” employed deceptive and fraudulent practices to exploit and take advantage of a “private individual” of their land assets.

        Malaysia is on the wrong side of ethics, honor, and principle.

        So all you’re proving and pointing out is that the Federation of Malaysia DOES NOT OWN Nort Borneo (Sabah) since 1851 and that they should return the land to the rightful owner and LANDLORD.

        That’s wonderful Kanoy.

        It’s wonderful to see that you realize the Philippines has acquired all the sovereign rights over all the possessions of the Sultan of Sulu which include North Borneo (Sabah).

        And yet, some Filipino countrymen and the Philippine Administration has no “balls” to uphold the President’s famous declaration:

        “to fight for what is truly ours”

        instead it has become:

        “to punish and imprison those who fight for what is truly ours”
