State Government takes note of SLS’s application for a judicial review

KOTA KINABALU: The State Government takes note of the Sabah Law Society’s application for a judicial review in respect of the 40% net revenue in the form of Special Grant that Sabah is entitled to under the Federal constitution.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Hajiji Haji Noor said the Sabah government sees the initiative by the SLS in a positive light that is not partisan and not political in the common furtherance of the constitutional arrangements when Sabah formed Malaysia in 1963.
“The Sabah government has been, and will continue to vigorously pursue the 40% entitlement and other legitimate rights and interests of Sabah with the Federal government,“ he said.
Last April, Hajiji said Sabah welcomed the four-fold increment of the Federal Government Special Grant for Sabah from RM26.7 million to RM125.6 million beginning this year seeing the move as a good development for Sabah whilst the State Government continues to pursue the 40% as agreed under the 1963 Malaysia Agreement.
