DAVAO CITY, Philippines—Sultan Jamalul Kiram III’s daughter, Jacel, claimed here Wednesday that Malaysian policemen arrested and later executed a cousin of her father identified as Ustadz Jamjam Sali last Sunday.

There has been no previous report of the alleged killing of Sali or any arrest conducted by Malaysian authorities on Sunday.

The Philippine Daily Inquirer called up a Sabah-based reporter and he said he had not heard of any “terrorist” killed by Malaysian security forces on Sunday.

Jacel said the killing of her uncle was disclosed to the Kiram family in a telephone call conversation with her father’s younger brother, Agbimuddin Kiram, who said Sali was arrested in Lahad Datu on Sunday after Malaysian security officials had ascertained he was a Kiram relative.

“My uncle and his family have been living in Sabah since the 1990s,” Jacel said.

She said, however, that details of the arrest and eventual killing of her uncle were unclear as of Wednesday.

    MALAYSIAn army is FUNDED by INCOME from SABAH in Billions of dollar$ every
    year for 50 years ALREADY…..a territory & sovereignty of the RP…property
    of sulu sultanate…

    malaysian army is being used to GENOCIDE FILIPINO CITIZENS on their OWN TERRITORY….funding rebellion in the PHILIPPINES so that SABAH claim will be forgotten..with tausugs & other muslim warriors killed & familes displaced ..they are the TRUE victims in that malaysian inspired rebellion in RP .. ….INUTILE MAKAPILI govt just keep on KOWTOWING to the MALAYSIAN dictates..

    sabah is extension of SULU……MALAYSIA robbed hundred of BILLION$ REVENUE to SULU & tausugs for 50 years ALREADY… .( not to mention robbing of BRUNEI
    sarawak and Terengganu)

    Malaya which controlled the Federal Government has been too much against Sabah,
    taking huge state revenues, not honouring pledges and gave back less than 5
    percent to the second biggest state in Malaysia ( SABAH…SULTANATE PROPERTY-RP TERRITORY )

    .”Every year the Federal Government of malaysia collected various
    taxes from Sabah to the tune of RM20 billion and this does not yet include the
    oil revenue derived from Sabah, whereas the State Government was only allowed
    to collect smaller taxes like on land and property, only about RM3.6 billion
    yearly. This is grossly not sufficient for Sabah,” .

    Chief Minister said the SABAH State chipped in about 26.9 per cent of the MALAYSIA
    overall crude oil output, which totaled more than 637,000 drums daily…a
    .territory & sovereignty of the RP…

    SABAH philippines…It has the potential to produce 1 million barrels of oil a day,” “The estimated reserves from the present Sabah oilfields is 1.4 billion barrels of oil and 7.7
    trillion scf of gas.” …

    50 YEARS na KINUHA ang RESOURCES ng SABAH ng MALAYSIAN govt at CORPORATE arm nito na PETRONAS……kung AKO ang RP GOVT at SULTANATE mag-file ako ng civil claim sa PETRONAS TOWERS…galing sa SABAH gas & oil yun a…lol..
