KUCHING, April 22: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Women’s wing views the relocation of the High Court registry from Kuching to Kota Kinabalu as an act of political revenge by the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government against Sarawakians.

Its chief, Koh Teck Wan, opined that the PH government had no intention to honour the Federal Constitution, as demonstrated in this particular case when they did not consult Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

“What is the use of the PH government’s recent rhetoric of wanting to amend the Federal Constitution to restore Sarawak’s status as an equal partner to Malaya and Sabah when the PH government has no intention to honour and uphold the constitution?


“Putrajaya also has no respect for the Sarawak government by not consulting us before issuing a notice on April 19 to relocate the registry.

“By their actions, Sarawak is definitely not being treated as an equal partner in any sense. I see this relocation issue as an act of political revenge by the PH government against Sarawakians,” she said in a statement today.

Kho added that this latest episode was another example of the failure of Sarawakian PH lawmakers.

“I, therefore, urge Sarawakians not to put any hopes on PH Sarawak, that they would come to our rescue. We can only depend on ourselves,” said Kho. — DayakDaily
