He said some of the documents have never been seen before, adding that the legal team will brief him further about their findings later today.

“[The documents] seem to be very good. They must be so because they must be substantive,” he told reporters here after opening an International Conference on Language Studies organised by Universiti Malaysia Sarawak.

Abang Johari said the findings were important because they were communications between the UK government and the UN prior to the formation of Malaysia in 1963.

“No, we have never seen these documents before,” he said, adding that there were so many things which the Sarawak government had no access to previously.

Abang Johari, whose father Tun Abang Openg was one of the signatories to the Malaysia Agreement from Sarawak, said the state government needed to have substantial evidence in its pursuit to reclaim its rights from Putrajaya.

“When we negotiate, we don’t shoot wildly,” he said.

The London trip was undertaken to retrieve documents from the British National Archives and led by the State Law, State-Federal Relationship and Project Monitoring Assistant Minister Sharifah Hasidah Sayeed Aman Ghazali.

The Sarawak research legal team included former state attorney-general Datuk Fong Joo Chung and State Assembly Deputy Speaker Datuk Gerawat Gala.

They spent a week in London to scour for documents related to the formation of Malaysia with the signing of the Malaysia Agreement by Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore.

Singapore was expelled from Malaysia in 1965.

  1. Stephen Rundi the balls licking scumbag from PBB has already admitted Sarawak BN was hopeless and useless when dealing with Umno Baru controlled Putrajaya by saying the State government would deal with MA 63 in its own way.

  2. Previously, money was used to shut the mouths. The same tactic will be used if there are still a lot of available cash.

  5. Devolution of power back to Sarawak from Umno Baru controlled Putrajaya is nothing but a political tactics by Putrajaya to buy time. With or without any significantly substantive evidence Sarawak should be resolute in demanding full respect and compliance from Umno Baru controlled Putrajaya of Malaysia Agreement 1963.
