The Sarawak Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) today denied a report on social media accusing CM Adenan Satem of blaming the federal authorities and Umno for the so-called ills affecting the country.
The CMO, in a statement, said the Facebook post also claimed that the Chief Minister had threatened to take Sarawak out of Malaysia if all the alleged problems were not solved.
“The posting is reported to have originated from the Facebook account ‘Sarawak Keluar Malaysia 2021’.”
The statement said the CMO categorically denied that the CM had ever made any public statement to that effect and described the post as grossly wrong and a blatant act to put the CM in a bad light in the eyes of the Federal Government.
It said the CM had said time and again that Sarawak would never secede from Malaysia, but that did not mean that the state could not fight for its rights as enshrined in the Federal Constitution, the Malaysia Agreement 1963, the Malaysia Act, the Inter-Governmental Committee Reports and Recommendations, and the Cobbold Comission Report.
Sarawak CID chief SAC Dev Kumar M M Sree Shunmugam, when contacted, said the police were looking into the case.
