MANILA, Philippines—The Sultanate of Sulu on Monday confirmed Malaysian authorities had arrested a nephew of Sultan Jamalul Kiram III but denied the detained Filipino was involved in the incursion into Sabah last month.

Abraham Idjirani, the sultanate’s spokesperson, said Datu Ahmirbahar Hussein Kiram and his wife, Gina Tevez, were seized by Malaysian police on Saturday from their house in Semporna, a coastal town several kilometers away from Lahad Datu, where the sultan’s followers landed on Feb. 9.

Ahmirbahar is a son of Sultan Bantilan Esmail Kiram, the sultan’s younger brother who earlier met with Interior Secretary Mar Roxas and discussed the possible “disengagement” of the sultanate’s followers from Sabah, Idjirani said. With a report from Tarra Quismundo

    Published: March 26, 2013

    ZAMBOANGA CITY – The
    Council of Royal Sharifs, the sovereign heirs and descendants of the royal
    families of the Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo yesterday called on the
    Muslim world to help them recover Sabah, which they claimed was illegally
    included in the Malaysian Federation.

    Rep. Loong said the
    manifesto was also forwarded to the Secretary General of the United Nations,
    the Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Secretary
    General of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and the Secretary
    General of the Non-Aligned Movement.

    The same manifesto was
    also sent to the Ambassadors of the United States, Great Britain, China,
    Indonesia, Kingdom of Brunei, and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for their information
    and support.

    SURRENDER! SURRENDER! SURRENDER!

    A Sulu gunman finally surrender himself to security forces on Monday.

    He surrendered himself at about 5pm near Kampung Tanjung Batu.

    He was in a very poor state, he was starving and hadn’t had a good night’s rest these past several weeks.

    He also called for the remaining Kiram terrorists to surrender.

    10 sultans which is the real ones…kiram the fake…until now they can’t even proved themselves what more to support their claims on our sabah land…no letgitimate document from the sultanate of brunei cedeing part of sabah…

    • Sebastian Archer

      :)

    • PurpleDaisy13

      As if Malaysia has a legitimate receipt for purchasing North Borneo (Sabah).

      Malaysia is just 50 yrs old. A new civilization that was just created and invented in 1963 and had already learned how to steal land property at an early age.

      • antonioiban

        Not yours and and never was…and never will be.

      • PurpleDaisy13

        It may have been part of our US from 1898 – 1946. But certainly was a land property belonging to the Sultan of Sulu since 1658.

        While this North Borneo (Sabah) War Zone could lead to Malaysia giving up North Borneo (Sabah).

      • antonioiban

        Maybe love, Not so much of a war zone anymore, people are moving back or relocate to new places, Those who are still hiding will be hunted,,as of today 1 place remains Red zone, militants in few numbers, starving, weak and just waiting for their time on earth to end.

        The supports are not showing up, its basically a ploy..and the KIRAMS will be held responsible when the dust has settle. And good luck to bring the matter to ICJ.
