HM SULTAN MUHAMMAD FUAD ABDULLA KIRAM I,
THE SULTAN OF SULU & THE SULTAN OF SABAH, APPEALS
TO END ILLEGAL OCCUPATION OF SABAH BY MALAYSIA
The Sultan of Sulu and The Sultan of Sabah prays for the good people of Sabah to recognize and know that Sabah belongs to The Sultan of Sulu and The Sultan of Sabah and the Sultanate of Sulu as lawful owners, and that Malaysia illegally occupied Sabah since 1963. He appeals to the good people of Sabah and the fair-minded leaders of the international community to end the Malaysian illegal occupation and return Sabah to its lawful owners, so that roads, hospitals, electricity plants, schools, drinking water supply system and other basic services can be realized in Sulu. Out of 18 towns of Sulu province alone, only the town of Jolo has cursory power and water and some roads, but all the 17 towns of Sulu lack these services and infrastructures depriving the people of their basic needs that have been existing for many many years that must be urgently resolved.
HM Sultan Muhammad Fuad Abdulla Kiram I representing the people of the Sultanate of Sulu being the lawful owners of Sabah comment that, in the event of successful Sabah recovery from Malaysia, the Royal Family and the Sultanate of Sulu will not drive anyone out of Sabah, be it may Malaysians, Tamils, Indians, Chinese, Filipinos, Tausugs, Australians, Europeans, Americans, or other nationalities, etc.
HM Sultan Muhammad Fuad I further states that any investor or any developer who put their investment capital in Sabah will not be dispossessed of their investment, and that the rule of law will be upheld, with no distinction of any kind, such as race, color, language, gender, religion, political or other opinion, social origin, property, birth or other status, etc.
HM Sultan Muhammad Fuad Abdulla Kiram I further envisions that one day the nations of the international community will finally intervene to force the departure of Malaysia in Sabah, as the illegal land grabbing and unlawful occupation of Sabah by Malaysia dispossessing the poor people of the Sultanate of Sulu of their Sabah land ownership, cannot be condoned and tolerated forever by good nations and peoples who believe in natural justice and in a fair and just society, as the acts of illegal occupation of Sabah by Malaysia are against the rule of law.
