No point amending Federal Constitution to original form when MA63 is fraudulent, claims ex-rep

Voon Lee Shan

KUCHING, April 7: Sarawak and Sabah should seek help from the United Nations (UN) to give its views on the formation of Malaysia which should be considered null and void.

Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) legal advisor and former Batu Lintang assemblyman Voon Lee Shan claimed the state governments of Sabah and Sarawak should not even refer to the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) because the agreement is fraudulent in the first place.

He opined that there was nothing to say Sarawak and Sabah were equal partners to the Federation of Malaya.


Another fraud in MA63, he claimed, was that at the point MA63 Treaty was signed on July 9, 1963, Sarawak was not a sovereign nation and the signing of MA63 violated established international law because Sabah and Sarawak at that time were still colonies of Britain.

“The remedy that Sarawak and Sabah should immediately take now, instead of seeking the amendment to the Federal Constitution, is to inform or to make representation to the UN giving their views that the formation of Malaysia should be considered null and void.

“At the same time, the state governments of Sarawak and Sabah should under the supervision of the UN take steps to proceed with the decolonization process under Article 1514 of the UN Resolutions before deciding the fate of Sabah and Sarawak further.

“For the decolonisation process, many legal minds are of the opinion that Britain still has a political obligation to see the decolonization of Sarawak and Sabah be properly done in accordance with international law and with UN Resolutions 1514 and 1541,” Voon said in a statement today.

He said Malaysia was a stillborn baby, born dead on September 16, 1963, and therefore, there was nothing to restore concerning the rights of Sarawak and Sabah when Malaysia, of which Sarawak and Sabah were a part of that baby which was born dead.

He continued, Malaysia was dead upon birth and the death certificate called the MA63 Treaty had been issued by the doctors.

“The doctors were the signatories of this death certificate MA63 Treaty. No medical science or doctor can give life to a dead body. The doctor, that is, the Malaysia Parliament cannot by medical science and medicines, that is, through the amendment of the federal constitution breathe life into a dead body, Malaysia,” said Voon.

He said the cause of death was due to complications during conception and pregnancy when the baby, Malaysia, was still in her mother’s womb. The mother’s womb was Great Britain which, he claimed, came out with the misleading and fraudulent Cobbold Commission Report upon which MA63 Treaty was made.

“The Cobbold Commission Report was considered misleadingly and a fraud by many legal experts and since this fraud has been made public by many lawyers and concerned parties, the current Members of Parliament and the governments of Sarawak and Sabah cannot say they never knew this fraud and insist to proceed to amend the Federal Constitution by putting back the lost equal status of Sarawak and Sabah in the Federal Constitution,” Voon elaborated.

He said Sarawak and Sabah were a gift from Britain to the Federation of Malaya on September 16, 1963 to enlarge the territories of the Federation of Malaya which on that day, upon a notification by the UN Permanent Secretary to the Federation of Malaya Dato Ong Yoke Lin, that upon the acquisition of Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak, the Federation of Malaya took a new name called the Federation of Malaysia.

“Therefore, to many legal experts, Malaysia is Malaya and Malaya is Malaysia,” said Voon. — DayakDaily
