US$1,305 Annual Sabah Lease: A Mockery


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
It’s ironic and a mockery for Malaysians to boast for the slight increase of Sabah lease from US$1,305 to an undisclosed amount – since the issue has not been resolved among its heirs from the Sultanate of Sulu. Actually, there’s no actual confirmation yet from Sultan Phugdal’s side, who replaced Sultan Jamalul Kiram after his death on how much the increase was and if it’s accepted or not. It has been known by this writer that then Crowned Prince Adbimuddin Kiram’s direct family did not agree with the said increase prior to his death as narrated to me by his son Datu Sayed in Zamboanga City in 2005.

The irony is, the Malaysian government publicly attest to the said lease but they denied Sabah being a property of Sultanate of Sulu which is a Philippine entity. Therefore, not acknowledging that it’s a Philippine territory. Can’t they understand the meaning of lease?

Duterte’s stake: “What has been the policy will always be the policy of the government, especially those for the interest of the country. We have to stake our claim. His administration recognized Sabah as the territory of the Sulu sultanate, as is claimed by the Kiram clan, who are citizens of the Philippines.

Government to Position Forces side by side with Sultanate


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
An insider told me that after a meeting with Pastor Boy Saycon, adviser to the Sultanate of Sulu, he clarified some issues pertaining to the Sabah claim saying; Malaysia knows that as per the United Nations, the sultanate as a sovereign has proprietary rights over Sabah. We will go to war if needed – but we will position our forces side by side with the sultanate.

These statements coincide with President Rodrigo Duterte’s stand on Sabah as it was noted when he said; “Whether you want to believe it or not, that is beside the point. The point is, that is ours.”

That point of view by the President is also applicable to the territories in the West Philippine Sea versus China. In fact artificial islands over the reefs and shoals were already built by the invader – despite the United Nations Arbitral Tribunal statement warning China that the country violated the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea because it’s within Philippines’ 200-km exclusive economic zone and territorial seas.

Saycon on Sabah Claim: Malaysians can dream all they want


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The Sultanate of Sulu now headed by Sultan Phugdal will no way compromise the Sabah claim after all that they’ve been through. The Malaysian government can resume their yearly lease but following present market value and under the conditions of the Sultanate. The BBL law can also take effect for the peace process to materialize but can never make Sabah as the reward for their efforts.

Circumstances are now favoring the sultanate with President Rodrigo Duterte’s support, Bongbong Marcos’ scrutinizing the details of BBL and many concerned Filipinos cheering for this historic event to take place especially those who have loved ones tortured while being deported from Sabah to Zamboanga despite insisting that they are in their homeland.

Pastor Boy Saycon said after seeing the media propaganda by the Malaysian press; that they can dream all they want but the Sabah claim cannot be compromised – they have to return it to the Philippines no matter what. Saycon is an adviser to the sultanate when it comes to the Sabah claim. He helped them gather evidence and documents that will help the move to push the Sabah claim in the United Nations – thus prompting the UN to issue a resolution to settle the claim in a peaceful manner. Formulating strategies are also Saycon’s notable skill thus giving him the title; Political Hing Maker – as the man behind Noybi!

Kiram no Senate seat but Marcos’ Sabah Claim Stand Secured with Duterte


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Senatorial candidate Princess Jacel Kiram in the past election did not make it to the Senate but her pushing for the Philippines’ claim over Sabah will definitely not go into vain. She was quoted saying by GMA that the $72 billion yearly income from the gasoline industry were enjoyed by the Malaysians instead of by its rightful owners, the Filipinos.

Better yet, Senator Bongbong Marcos, chairman of the Senate committee on local government that scrutinized the proposed BBL during the previous Aquino administration, will already get the statement from Malacañang and the Department of Foreign Affairs that the government will not give up the country’s Sabah claim in exchange for Malaysia’s help in the peace process – now that President Rodrigo Duterte is installed into power who is a Marcos loyalist.

No Compromise for Sabah Claim: Duterte backs the Sultanate


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
North Borneo or Sabah belongs to the Sultanate of Sulu and the Philippine government now recornized it as sovereign ancestral property again like in older times therefore, there is no more denying that Sabah is a Philippine territory regardless of the Malaysian Referendum held by their Federal government showing Filipinos prefer to stay there.

Regardless of the outcome whether the Malaysian government will resume their yearly rental or submit to the newly drafted BBL conditions, the Sultanate of Sulu will not compromise it’s ownership. It has to be returned to the Sultanate or to the Philippines for that matter.

Excerpts from Manny Piñol’s Post: Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, said that the Philippine Government must never abandon the Sultanate of Sulu and the people of the islands West of the country in their search for the recognition of their proprietary rights claim over Sabah. “The proprietary claim of the heirs of the Sultan of Sulu and the people of the islands West of the Philippines cannot be ignored and abandoned by their own government”.

Duterte’s position on the Sabah Claim also indicates his strong and ardent adherence to social justice and the protection of the Filipinos’ rights over what they claim as theirs. “It cannot be denied that there is a recognition of the proprietary right of the Sultanate over Sabah and that is the yearly payment being made by the Malaysian government to the heirs of the Sultan,” Duterte said recently.
