An oil producing offshore area, Block M and Block L belonging to Sabah near Brunei in the South China Sea is no longer a part of Sabah. It now belongs to Brunei. This Block M and Block L is close to 6000 square kilometers in size, which is like 10 times the size of Singapore. Both the blocks can produce 1 billion barrels of oil  or US$100 billion in revenue and it belongs to Sabah.

Our Chief Minister from Sabah, Musa Aman together with Abdullah Ahmad Badawi negotiated with the Sultan of Brunei to get back Limbang for Sarawak, in exchange they agreed to surrender this Block M and Block L belonging to Sabah. Can you believe this? Yes, Musa Aman with Badawi,  on march 17th, 2009 in Brunei, had signed away US100 billion dollars of oil to the Sultan of Brunei.

And this was not brought up at all by Musa Aman to the Sabah State Legislative Assembly. More importantly by giving up the Blocks L and M, both Musa  Aman and Pak Lah were altering the boundaries to Sabah, and the Constitution under Clause 2 (b) provides that this will require the consent of the state and as well as the Conference of Rulers.

To give away or demarcate boundaries of Borneo States, Badawi must first consult Parliament, then under the Federation Agreement with Sabah, Badawi must ask Musa Aman to convene an emergency sitting of the Sabah State Legislative Assembly and then take a vote in the  State Assembly. Musa Aman did not just do that.  Musa Aman concealed this whole thing, Brunei, Block M and Block L from Sabahans. This Musa Aman, did not bring this matter to the State Assembly at all and why was he hiding this from Sabahans? Musa Aman owes Sabahans and explanation.

Besides, only if  Sabah had cleared this matter in the assembly, then only, can this be brought to the Agong for a royal consent to the demarcation of the new boundaries. The Conference of Rulers MUST also agree and that too has to come BEFORE the signing of the Agreement with Brunei. But they did not.

Then why was Pak Lah and Musa Aman in a hurry to sign the Agreement with the Sultan? Why the rush? Pak Lah says he has got the approval from his Cabinet and so everything is in order. But is this true? Was the  process done constitutionally, as per the Federation Agreement?

To me this is like TREASON! Musa Aman  should be charged for Treason for concealing, hiding or aiding the crime of TREASON. Musa Aman concealed this action from the Sabah State Assembly, and for any public servant To conceal, hide, or aid the crime of TREASON is to be guilty of the same offence.

The facts are :

1. Malaysia, Sabah no longer has any sovereignty over the 2 areas i.e Block L and Block M.
2. Malaysian oil companies can only participate in jointly developing the areas for 40 years (with Brunei’s permission).
3. Limbang remains a disputed area with Brunei.

I stand by my opinion that Musa Aman and  Abdullah  Badawi should be tried for Treachery and TREASON for losing territory belonging to Sabah, Malaysia.

Then if  the KL boys were to say that the Blocks L & M are not within the Sabah State waters and therefore under the purview of the Federal Government, then I will say, why this not brought to Parliament, and not brought to The Agong, and then to the Conference of Rulers, as we are after all altering the boundaries of the federation? Is it because it comes under the Federal Territory of LABUAN?

Explain lah!

Dato’ Sri Anifah bin Haji Aman, the Malaysian Minister of Foreign Affairs the brother of Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman, you are the right person, please explain? You and your brother claim fighting for Sabah’s rights, show us lah! Sorry Anifah I have to bring you into this picture although you are just recuperating from a massive attack following surgery to clear blocked arteries in your heart. I hear you are recovering well following coronary bypass surgery in Singapore. I wish you speedy recovery my friend!

    No Sabah areas ceded: Musa

    Published on: Wednesday, May 05, 2010

    Kota Kinabalu: No Sabah areas have been ceded in relation to the two oil blocks issue according to the State Attorney-General, clarified Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.

    He said the State Government was aware about the matter since Wisma Putera had briefed the Cabinet twice.

    At the same time, he said the issue of bringing the matter to the State Legislative Assembly also does not arise.

    Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) President Datuk Yong Teck Lee had asked whether the Chief Minister and State Cabinet knew about what he claimed to be the “surrender of its maritime territory” by then Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

    The Foreign Ministry in a report stated that the Commercial Arrangement Area (CAA) agreement between Malaysia and Labuan for two oil blocks provides for a sharing of revenue in oil and gas exploration.

    The Ministry stated that the Exchange of Letters between Abdullah and the Sultan of Brunei had established the final delimitation of territorial sea, continental shelf and exclusive economic zone for both countries.

    On Sunday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the negotiations over the two blocks were ongoing and that although an agreement to resolve the boundary dispute had been reached in principle, talks for a win-win situation had not been completed.

    Meanwhile, Musa said the Government’s seriousness in addressing the illegal immigrants problem in Sabah is reflected in the formation of the special laboratory on the management of foreigners and launching of Ops Bersepadu Phase III.

    The lab aimed at enhancing management, entry system, monitoring and confirmation of foreigners in Sabah would see 30 government officers from various departments and agencies with wide experience in their respective fields selected to work in the laboratory on a full-time basis for four weeks.

    “We hope they can provide positive inputs in resolving problems concerning illegal immigrants,” he said, after chairing second State Security Committee meeting this year at Wisma Innoprise.

    The Cabinet Committee on Foreign Workers and Illegal Immigrants chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had decided that the laboratory be set up in Sabah, he said.

    According to him, among the targets of the laboratory was to gather the latest data on foreigners in Sabah based on the category whether they came legally or otherwise.

    Besides, it was also to reassess the interest cost of foreign labour in the various sectors like plantation, industrial and tourism.

    “We hope the lab will be able to provide valuable input on how to resolve the illegal workers and illegal immigrants problem in Sabah,” he said.

    On the Ops Bersepadu Phase III, he said it was a follow-up to the previous operations where all the employers were required to register their undocumented foreign workers since there could be new ones.

    The number of foreign workers registered since the last two phases were 316,000 with 217,000 of them Indonesians and the rest Filipinos.

    The operations to cover the whole of Sabah would be held in 24 series beginning May 4.

    Musa said the security situation in the State was good and there were no indications of any major threat.

    There were no attempts of people from Southern Philippines to enter Sabah to get away from the unrest there.

    At the same time, Musa urged the local community leaders to be the ears and eyes of the Government in ensuring no illegal immigrants are present in their areas.

    If a thousand Sabahans gathered anywhere to protest against the two oil producing bloks given away to Brunei they can be arrested and charged with illegal assembly.
    But if a thousand Sabahans gathered in front of all Sabah police stations to make police reports against the two oil producing bloks given away to Brunei their rights will be protected by police themselves.It is because nobody can deny anybody from making a police report.
    And if a thousand Sabahans gathered in front of all Sabah MACC offices to make MACC reports against the two oil producing bloks given away to Brunei their rights will be protected by police themselves.It is because nobody can deny anybody from making a MACC report.
    Then the IGP and MACC Director General have to explain the progress of their stance in the PDRM and MACC reports.

    Kalau kita tgo secara kasar la kan memang tindakan yang diambil adalah kurang bijak. Kenapa perlu bagi minyak yang harga billion2 trillion2 sama Brunei kan…

    Tapi bila kita tgo dari sudut lain, kita akan lihat dari pandangan yang orang tidak nampak.
    okey, menurut undang2 malaysia 3batu nautika dari darat saja yang menjadi milik state lebih dari 3 batu nautika adalah dibawah kuasa federal. So, Sabah tidak ada kuasa atas 2 blok minyak 2. Jadi Musa Aman tidak berkuasa untuk berkata YA atau TIDAK dalam kes ini kerana federal mempunyai kuasa penuh terdapa dua blok ini.

    Okey, berbalik kepada agreement yang di tandatangani oleh kedua2 pihak. Melalui isi kandundan surat tersebut menyatakan bahawa dispute antara sarawak dan Brunei telah selesai. Maksudnya disini secara tidak langsung, limbang secara total adalah milik Malaysia. Dan Brunei mendapat hak kedaulatan terhadap dua blok minyak tetapi secara tidak langsung Malaysia (Petronas) masih mempunyai hak untuk turut serta dalam mana2 aktiviti yang akan dijalankan di kawasan tersebut. Dalam undang2 antarabangsa ada terdapat artikel/code yang membenarkan situasi seperti kedaulatan sesebuah kawasan adalah dibawah kuasa negara A namun negara B berhak dan berkuasa terhadap aktiviti yang dijalankan di Kawasan tersebut. Jadi melalui pandangan saya srtikel/code ini boleh diadaptasi untuk kes Malaysia dan Brunei.

    Jika diteliti Malaysia tidak kehilangan atau mengalami kerugian. Malaysia sudah mendapatkan Limbang dan juga masih lagi mempunyai hak terhadap kedua2 blok. Jika kita berfikiran positive akan ada banyak perkara positive yang dapat kita kongsikan.

    Semoga kongsian ini dapat membuka minda untuk melihat sesuatu dari sudut lain.

    We HAVE NOT lost Block L and M. Because the exchange/sale was done illegally without proper process via consultations with the people and appropriate approval by the state authorities, this could be challenged quite easily in an international court.

    The Malaysian Federal Government does not have the right to sell Oil Blocks without Sarawak state’s approval.

    By this fact alone, this deal is null and void. Brunei also should know not to accept deals done without the Malaysian people’s consent. An apology to the people of Malaysia by the appropriate Bruneian authorities and the immediate withdrawal of all illegal claims should be acceptable for reparations and normalization of ties between Brunei and Malaysia.

    RUNDINGAN M’SIA-BRUNEI BERI KEUNTUNGAN BERSAMA
    3rd May, 2010

    SIBU: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak yakin bahawa rundingan antara Malaysia dan Brunei berkaitan dengan persempadanan laut dan darat akan mencapai satu bentuk penyelesaian yang saling menguntungkan kedua-dua negara.

    Perdana Menteri berkata kedua-dua negara jiran itu sedang berunding perkara berkenaan dalam semua aspek, termasuk peranan dan peluang yang boleh diraih oleh Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) daripada segi kerja cari gali dan pembangunan serta pelaburan yang boleh dibuat oleh Brunei di Malaysia sebagai satu pakej.

    “(Duli Yang Maha Mulia) Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah selalu sebut perkara ini bahawa baginda berkehendakkan penyelesaian yang berasaskan satu formula yang saling menguntungkan,” katanya.

    Najib berkata demikian kepada pemberita selepas menghadiri jamuan tengah hari dan menyampaikan Pingat Jasa Malaysia (PJM) kepada 32 veteran Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (ATM) Sarawak di Kem Rascom, Briged Kesembilan Infantri di Jalan Ulu Oya dekat sini kelmarin.

    Beliau berkata persetujuan pada prinsipnya telah dicapai pada 2009 dan kini kedua-dua pihak sedang melihat rundingan daripada segi kajian yang dilakukan dalam satu semangat perjanjian yang menguntungkan.

    Najib diminta mengulas kenyataan bekas Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, yang menulis dalam laman blognya Khamis lepas, mempersoalkan sebab dua medan cari gali, konsesi blok L dan blok M, yang bukan lagi kepunyaan Malaysia dan berkata kehilangan itu boleh mengakibatkan kerugian kepada Malaysia sekurang-kurangnya US$100 bilion (RM320 bilion).

    Dr Mahathir mendakwa penggantinya Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi telah menyerahkan kedua-dua blok itu sebagai pertukaran bagi Limbang.

    Abdullah, yang menandatangani Pertukaran Surat pada Mac 2009, menjelaskan bahawa perjanjian darat dan laut dengan Brunei diluluskan oleh Kabinet Malaysia dan Malaysia akan dibenarkan mengambil bahagian dalam usaha sama pembangunan minyak dan gas atas dasar komersial di kedua-dua kawasan itu bagi tempoh 40 tahun.

    Sementara itu, Petronas pula berkata syarikat minyak nasional itu telah dipelawa oleh Brunei untuk membangunkan dua kawasan penerokaan luar pesisir tersebut atas dasar persetujuan komersial.

    Petronas berkata syarikat itu telah menubuhkan sebuah pasukan dan memulakan rundingan dengan Brunei untuk memperincikan terma bagi pembangunan kedua-dua kawasan itu yang kini dikenali sebagai Blok CA1 dan CA2.

    For the benefit of other readers

    Brunei has an outstanding territorial dispute with neighboring Malaysia over the deep-sea acreage that includes blocks J and K off the coast of Borneo. In June 2003, Total suspended exploration work in Block J, following an April 2003 incident in which several naval patrol boats from Malaysia chased away a Total ship. In 2003, Murphy Oil (U.S.) and Petronas (Malaysia) discovered a large (700-million-barrel) oil field – called “Kikeh” – which may extend into Block J. Brunei claims that Block J and the adjacent Block K (awarded to a joint venture of Shell, Conoco and Mitsubishi) are completely within its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Brunei is counting on Blocks J and K to maintain the country’s oil and gas output another decade or more, and without these Blocks, Brunei may be forced to move more rapidly away from an economy based on hydrocarbons.

    Malaysian officials have offered to devise a joint-development zone with Brunei, but this would necessitate Brunei redrawing its contracts with Shell, Conoco, and Mitsubishi. In March 2004 Shell Malaysia announced a new oil discovery at Gumusut, near the disputed territory. The status of oil development in these disputed areas remains unresolved.
