The Amanah deputy president also questioned if the state government had sought to resolve the matter locally before setting its sights abroad, saying the move suggested conflict within the Barisan Nasional coalition at the state and national levels.

“Did the Sarawak government speak to KL (the federal government) before taking this action?

“For us, this move is not smart as it will invite foreign intervention into the country,” he told a news conference.

Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg did not disclose when the team the team will depart for London or for how long, when he announced the move last week.

The team will be led by Sarawak’s Law, Federal-State Relations and Project Monitoring Assistant Minister Sharifah Hasidah Sayeed Aman Ghazali.
