Sarawak,-Abang-Johari-Openg,-Shariah-Courts-(Criminal-Jurisdiction)-Act-1965,-Act-355,-stamp-duty,-Adenan-Satem,-Najib-Razak,-Federal-Constitution,-Sarawak-Mps,-Sarawak-rights,The Sarawak government, under its new Chief Minister Abang Johari Openg, continues to stand firm against hudud law in the state.

“I want to make it clear that hudud is not applicable to Sarawak and I share the same stand as the late Tok Nan (former Sarawak chief minister Adenan Satem).

“We take the same stand but this bill is shariah and not hudud.

“But even if it is shariah, we are concerned because it is discriminatory between Muslims and non-Muslims under Article 8 of the Federal Constitution.”

He was speaking after witnessing the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Sarawak Energy Bhd and Sarawak Forestry Corporation in Kuching today.

Asked whether Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties in Sarawak should vote for the proposed amendments to the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965, also known as Act 355, he said it would depend on the outcome of the meeting between the prime minister and BN component leaders.

  2. PAS could not implement Hudud in Kelantan and Trengganu before because the current shariah law would not give power to Kelantan and Trengganu state government to implement Hudud. Act 355 will empower these bigots to implement Hudud.

    Abang Johari must state early if he opposed to Hudud being implemented in the whole nation in future or he did not mind if it is implemented only in Peninsula Malaysia. Without Act 355 there shall be no Hudud and the Syariah law shall not be the Supreme law of our multi religious and multi racial nation.
