Hak sesama islam pun jadi halal. Rujuk surat pajakan itu dgn teliti sebelum memberi komen yg tak berdasarkan apa apa. Setakat ini seperti yang kita semua maklum sebarang laporan umum available for public mengenai pembabitan mana-mana pihak hanya diperolehi daripada media Filipina yang tidak dikawal sepertimana media Malaysia. Sama ada media Filipina mempunyai niat politik di sebalik laporan-laporan tersebut adalah tidak dapat dipastikan.
In fact they are paying rent. Our followers will stay in Lahad Datu. Nobody will be sent to the Philippines. SABAH is our home. Terima kasih atas artikel yg amat menarik. Ada referendom di buat utk ini. Ini kerana terdapat interpretasi berbeza pada perjanjian yg ditandatangani itu samada leased atau ceded. Then again, ini persoalan sejarah yg agak terlalu lama utk dikenalpasti. Dari segi common sense, selepas bertahun-tahun Sabah di bawah pentadbiran dan dibangunkan oleh Malaysia, maka ia sepatutnya menjadi hak Malaysia.
Jika historic title diterima sebagai hujah mengatasi self-determination , maka bukan sahaja Sabah, malah banyak lagi wilayah dan negara di seluruh dunia akan kucar-kacir. Soalan saya — Boleh tak malaysia tidak meneruskan cessation money ni?? Kenapa diteruskan juga? On what basis do we have to continue on the payment? Persoalan ini boleh dijawab dgn lebih tepat oleh Kementerian Luar Negeri KLN yg memiliki akses kepada dokumen-dokumen penting.
Macaskie, berdasarkan terjemahan geran oleh Maxwell dan Gibson. Macaskie CJ telah memberi penghakiman untuk menyenaraikan 9 orang sebagai waris Sultan Sulu. A well researched and well written from a sincere citizen of Malaysia.. Salam Andak.. Cukuplah sekadar hati saya tenang mengingatkan yg satu hari nanti, anak2 arwah Insp. Terima kasih dengan maklumat yang dinyatakan. Sekurang-kurangnya boleh memberikan pemahaman kepada masyarakat umum di Malaysia. Dengan adanya situasi seperti ini dapat memberikan gambaran kepada kita sendiri bahawa isu seperti ini atau boleh kita kan sebagai isu perebutan wilayah dapat membuka mata rakyat Malaysia sendiri.
Mohon juga kepada pihak-pihak yang tidak bertanggungjawab tidak menjadikan isu lahad datu ini sebagai satu cara untuk memutarbelitkan dan memberi fahaman yang songsang. Berkenaan dengan penghakiman di ICJ, Malaysia berkemungkinan mempunyai peluang untuk menang sekiranya dapat menyediakan dokumen serta bahan bukti yang sah. Tambahan, kerajaan Malaysia telah pun memberi prasarana yang sepatutnya kepada penduduk di Lahad Datu sendiri. Di sini, ingin saya tegaskan bahawa saya bukan mempersoalkan kekurangberkesanan pasukan keselamatan negara.
Tetapi, saya ingin menegaskan bahawa dengan adanya isu seperti ini, kemungkinan pihak Kementerian Dalam Negeri serta Pertahanan negara dapat mengukuhkan dengan menambahkan bilangan barisan pertahanan negara kita daripada yang sedia ada sekarang. Dengan adanya bilangan barisan pertahanan yang ramai, ini mungkin dapat menjadikan sistem keselamatan kita lebih efektif. Sekian kalinya, segala yang saya nyatakan di atas adalah merupakan pendapat saya sendiri. Mohon maaf jika ada yang salah dan sila dibetulkan. Ia cumalah pendapat semata-mata daripada saya sebagai generasi muda.
Terima kasih. Saya tak faham dgn pendapat ramai pihak terutama di pihak Filipina yang nak bawa benda ni ke ICJ. Kalau Filipina nak bawak lagi boleh, tapi pada pendapat saya, buang duit, buang masa saja — melainkan ada pihak di sana mahu meraih political mileage dilihat sbg pejuang. Satu yg saya kurang setuju dgn cara isu ini di handle ialah begitu lemahnya maklumat disebarkan kpd umum. Saya tidak minta pemerintah pasukan keselamatan dedah rahsia taktikal, saya cuma ingin melihat pemerintah pasukan keselamatan berani menafikan khabar-khabar angin dgn fakta di press conference yg tetap, bukan ketika ditemuramah di tepi-tepi khemah ketika waktu rehat.
Kita lihat bagaimana tanpa sebaran maklumat rasmi yg berkesan, telah membuka ruang kpd khabar-khabar angin berleluasa. Alhamdulillah dan syukran jazilan sdr di atas penulisan yang mencerahkan. Selain dari keturunan Kiram ini terdapat beberapa kumpulan lain yang melantik Sultan Sulu mereka sendiri. Saya harap masalah mereka ini diselesaikan dengan baik tanpa mengugat keamanan di negara lain. Perjuangan pihak polis mempertahankan kedaulatan dan keamanan negara adalah sesuatu yang mulia. Doa saya ialah mereka diberikan ganjaran syahid di sisi Allah swt. Saya setuju dengan sdr tentang keperluan meningkatkan penyampaian maklumat kepada pihak awam.
Dalam masa yang sama perlu diimbangi juga dengan keperluan menyampaikan maklumat yang sesuai dan tepat supaya tidak menimbulkan kekeliruan dan rasa cemas di pihak awam.. Jika kita lihat di Sabah, tiada bezanya peluang yang diberi untuk sesiapa mencari rezeki. Kehidupan pun aman dan terima menerima saja.
Kesian Malaysia. Kehidupan tenang dicemburui ramai. Usaha baik dianggap tidak memadai. Semoga Allah swt memelihara keamanan di tanah air tercinta ini dan memudahkan kita untuk terus membantu mereka yang teraniaya. Ya, memang betul maklumat perlu sesuai dan tepat supaya tidak menimbulkan kekeliruan dan rasa cemas di pihak awam. Rakan-rakan saya bertubi-tubi menerima maklumat Kunak diserang. Polis cedera ditembak di Semporna. Adakah khabar-khabar angin ini benar?
Tidak, malangnya lagi buruk. PDRM mengesahkan 5 org anggotanya bukan sahaja cedera, malah terkorban! Dalam era moden kini, tidak perlulah kita terikat dgn kaedah tradisional press conference di hadapan kamera. Sediakan portal rasmi yang hanya mengeluarkan kenyataan sahih tanpa dihiasi laporan yg tidak penting.
Application error (Rails)
Public boleh memeriksa sendiri kenyataan rasmi terkini tanpa tertanya-tanya. Jika kenyataan rasmi 5 anggota terkorban dikeluarkan lebih awal, bukankah ia boleh mematikan sama sekali khabar2 angin diserang dan sebagainya? Mengapa khabar2 angin ini patut diberi ruang? Salah satu lagi berita palsu yg tersebar begitu lama sblm dinafikan — berita kematian Koperal Azman Ampong. Orang Sabah adalah rakyat Malaysia sama seperti rakyat di Semenanjung dan Sarawak … derita Sabah adalah derita rakyat Malaysia.
Memang ramai org dari Sabah dan Sarawak, tapi kita sama sekali tidak boleh menidakkan pengorbanan nyawa org Besut dan org Sg Besar. Terima kasih Andak, 1. Sekadar berkongsi kerisauan,bilakah tentera boleh berkerjasama dgn lebih optimum memandangkan angka korban dah 7 orang di pihak Malaysia? Perkara 6 kaitan isu dengan DS Anuar, propaganda atau fakta berserta bukti sahih. Saya amat bersetuju tentang penyebaran maklumat hendaklah bertapis dan terkawal.
Pada pandangan saya, situasi adalah terkawal di bawah PDRM. Selagi darurat tidak diisytiharkan, maka PDRM menjadi peneraju dalam kawalan keselamatan. ATM membantu. Darurat bukanlah sesuatu yg senang-senang diisytihar, dan darurat bukanlah perkara yg enak-enak. Bila darurat, Parlimen boleh buat undang-undang tanpa proses gubalan biasa. Kuasa Parlimen berlipat ganda. Saya yakin Parlimen skrg tidak mahukan kuasa sebegitu.
Bagi saya, selagi keadaan ini tidak berlaku, maka ATM hanya dapat membantu apabila diminta, tidak meneraju. Sama seperti di Sauk. Pandangan saya ini terbuka kepada perbincangan. Kita lihat media di Filipina, sgt bebas. Ada yg memetik Reuters juga. Keadaan ini sama sekali berbeza dgn kebebasan media di negara kita. Pada masyarakat sulu khususnya masyarakat laut atau nomad lautan , kewarganegaraan itu bukanlah suatu yang penting untuk mereka pohon kerana pada mereka, mencari kelangsungan kehidupan di pesisiran pantai dan lautan adalah lebih utama. Kehidupan mereka seringkali berhijrah dari satu persisiran pantai ke satu pesisiran pantai yang lain.
Itulah cara hidup mereka. Tetapi atas nama pembangunan, mereka sering kali mengalah dan berpindah serta menerokai persisiran pantai yang lain pula. Pengetahuan terhadap keperluan kad pengenalan atau kewarganegaraan pada mereka bukanlah suatu yang wajib diperolehi. Tetapi kenapa harus dinafikan kehidupan dan kehadiran mereka di tanah tumpah darah mereka sendiri? Seandainya saudara meninjau persisiran pantai timur sabah khususnya, pasti saudara akan bertemu dengan mereka-mereka yang masih tidak mempunyai kad pengenalan dokumen diri.
Saudara tahu berapa perbelanjaan yang terpaksa mereka keluarkan untuk membuat permohonan kewarganegaraan itu? Pada mereka, lebih baik menyuapkan sahaja wang perbelanjaan itu ke mulut-mulut anak dan isteri mereka agar memperolehi kelangsungan hidup di bumi ciptaan tuhan ini. Saudara tidak mengalaminya kerana saudara tidak sebangsa dengan mereka. Tetapi ketahuilah bahawa, mereka adalah saudara seagama….
Jika ada pendatang yang menganggap keperluan kad pengenalan dan kewarganegaraan bukan wajib, maka tiada sebab mengapa kaum India, Cina dan Pakistan pula dipersalahkan. Kaum Cina, India, Pakistan yg tinggal 10 tahun sanggup merebut peluang pergi ke JPN, bawa dokumen, bawa salinan fotostat, isi borang, bayar bayaran permohonan RM Tempoh 10 tahun bukan terlalu lama, 10 tahun yg lepas ialah tahun Undang-undang Malaysia sekiranya mereka memang orang Malaysia. Mengapa mereka perlu mendapatkannya?
Berlainan drp keturunan sptmana yg saudara nyatakan. Mereka mmg berhasrat utk menjadi warganegara Malaysia. Sebab itu mereka berlumba-lumba memohon walaupun sampai merangkak!
Bila dah bertembak-tembak, berbunuh-bunuh, kerja tak ada, hidup merempat, tak payah nak lari ke negara lain. Undang-undang haruslah berpaksikan Keadilan dan bukannya Penyelewengan atau penindasan oleh pihak-pihak yg kurang bertanggungjawab. Seperti yang saya katakan tadi, ramai dikalangan mereka masih kurang arif mengenai urusan Kad Pengenalan diri akibat taraf pendidikan selain dihimpit kemiskinan dek menghuni pesisiran pantai yg cukup sekadar utk melangsungkan kehidupan harian mereka. Sebagai penutup perbincangan saya dengan saudara, dan saya mendoakan wira-wira yg berkorban yg berjuang utk penerusan generasi masa hadapan mereka akan mendapat lindungan drp Allah SWT.
Sesungguhnya Kami telah menciptakan kamu dari lelaki dan perempuan dan Kami telah menjadikan kamu berbagai bangsa dan bersuku puak, supaya kamu berkenal-kenalan dan beramah mesra antara satu dengan yang lain. Sesungguhnya semulia-mulia kamu di sisi Allah ialah orang yang lebih takwanya di antara kamu, bukan yang lebih keturunan atau bangsanya.
Al-Hujraat, Info yg sgt baik dan jelas. Sy yg duduk disemenanjung kurang mendapat maklumat tepat mengenai konflik di Lahad Datu kerana ketiadaan keterbukaan maklumat seperti yg tuan utarakan. Salut kepada petugas tanah air kita yg berjuang sehingga ke titisan darah yg terakhir. Cumanya kalau ada sikit pencerahan ttg beberapa perkara yg sy sbg seorang rakyat Malaysia inginkan kepastian.
Bagaimanakah tahap keselamatan disana sebenarnya? Tak hairan kalau melihat ada konco2 sultan sulu didalam UMNO. Komen tuan? Isu pencerobohan sudah wujud sejak pembentukan Malaysia pada lagi, dan tidak hanya berlaku di sempadan Sabah sahaja. Kerajaan Filipina memang menghadapi masalah untuk disarm bangsa Moro, walaupun sejak perjanjian damai ditandatangani. Memiliki senjata secara bebas umpama satu budaya di sana. Boleh baca:. Siapa Sultan Sulu? Kerajaan Filipina telah berhenti mengiktiraf mana-mana individu sebagai Sultan Sulu.
Waris Kesultanan Sulu tidak memiliki apa-apa authority walaupun di wilayah Filipina — jadi mengapa pula mahu tuntut authority di wilayah milik negara lain? Jamalul Kiram III hanya mengaku sebagai sultan, tetapi beliau bukan sultan. Sebarang rundingan yg dibuat oleh kerajaan saya lihat hanyalah atas dasar perikemanusiaan, bukan antara kerajaan dgn kerajaan. Isu pencerobohan sempadan maritim berlaku di mana-mana di dunia.
Amerika Syarikat tidak mampu menghalang beratus ribu orang Cuba menceroboh Miami, walaupun memiliki kelengkapan paling canggih dalam dunia. Filipina pun tidak mampu menghalang militan bersenjata merentas sempadannya. Tiada sumber dari organisasi rasmi seperti tentera dan sebagainya dipetik seperti laporan Reuters.
Alhamdullilah ada info yang amat jelas yang dapat diyakini kesahihannya berikutan ianya disokong dengan beberapa bukti-bukti melalui dokumen-dokumen serta fakta-fakta logikal yang Tuan paparkan. Sekurang-kurangnya dapat membuka minda rakyat seperti saya dalam mempertimbangkan yang mana yang benar dan yang mana khilaf dalam memahami apa yang sebenar-benarnya sedang berlaku. Terima kasih Tuan di atas info yang saya yakini amat berguna pada seluruh rakyat Malaysia.
Moga ianya dapat memberi pemahaman yang lebih jelas kepada semua khasnya kepada rakyat Malaysia yang cinta tanahair tercinta ini. Kepada yang terkorban dalam memperjuangkan tanahair ini saya doakan agar mereka diletakkan di dalam golongan para syuhadah serta syahid, Al-Fatihah, AMIN! Pengerusi Palestine National Authority badan yg diiktiraf antarabangsa sebagai pentadbir Palestin , Mahmoud Abbas, menyatakan bahawa penolakan ini ialah satu kesilapan. Kita semua tahu bahawa akibat daripada penolakan ini ialah perang.
Bila perang, orang Arab dah nak menang. Tapi akhirnya kalah juga. Boleh rujuk buku sejarah. Dulu kalah dengan British. Sekarang kalah lagi — kepada Yahudi pula. Sekarang bila PBB bagi pelan, orang Arab tolak. Bila perang, orang Arab kalah, macamana?
Apa hak yang dimiliki oleh satu pihak — yang telah kalah perang? Yang dikendong tak dapat, yang dikejar berciciran orang kita kata. Kesultanan Sulu juga kalah perang dengan Sepanyol. Saya melihat kalau pelan ini diterima dahulu, sekarang ini akan ada 2 negara: Israel dan Palestin, sepertimana India dan Pakistan. Malaysia pun ada populasi pendatang yang ramai juga. Malaysia tak pula berperang. Walhal Malaysia pun majoriti Islam juga. Saya berpendapat benda ini sudah lama selesai kalau tidak sebab sifat org Arab suka bergaduh antara satu sama lain. Tidak bersatu. Oleh sebab itulah kedatangan nabi terakhir itu satu mukjizat — kerana Baginda SAW dpt menyatukan satu bangsa yang begitu degil, kasar dan suka bergaduh — iaitu Arab.
Saya tiada menulis apa-apa dakwaan terhadap ketua pembangkang. Tuan boleh rujuk artikel di atas dgn lebih teliti. Semua pihak, sama ada pembangkang mahupun kerajaan, tiada sebab untuk risau jika tidak melakukan apa-apa kesalahan. Saya melihat keceluparan pihak tertentu yang sering melabelkan bahawa merekalah penduduk asal Sabah, seterusnya banyak menuduh saudara-saudara seagama saya sebagai PATI, walhal kalau disingkap dari segi sejarah Sabah, Pantai Timur dan Pantai Barat Sabah sememangnya berada di bawah naungan dua sultan yang utama iaitu kesultanan Brunei dan Kesultanan Sulu, dan ada juga disebutkan Kesultanan Bolongan berhampiran kalimantan.
Bukankah masyarakatnya di bawah naungan Sultan-Sultan tersebut beragama Islam? Saya terpanggil untuk bertanya soalan ini kerana pihak yang seirngkali menuduh itu adalah bukan seagama dengan saya. Sememangnya saya khuatir mereka ada agenda yang lebih besar daripada apa yang terjadi sekarang ini. Lebih-lebih lagi pertelangahan yang sedang berlaku ketika ini adalah melibatkan saudara seagama saya.!
PATI yang dituduh itu memanglah lebih menjurus kepada saudara seagama saya. Apakah motif disebalik label yang diberikan itu? Adakah yang berlaku sekarang ini agenda sesuatu puak untuk melemahkan daulah Islamiyah kerajaan Malaysia? Walaupun kebarangkalian untuk Filipina menang keatas tuntutanya keatas Sabah adalah tipis. Namun harus ingat disebalik Filipina adalah US. Satu kuasa besar yang sememangnya diikuti oleh dunia.
Sebelum ini pun Filipina pernah membuat tuntutan keatas Sabah. Tidak mustahil dikatakan jika kes di Lahad Datu ini adalah penyebab untuk mereka campur tangan. Sangat berharap kita lebih bersatu padu dalam menangani hal ini dan bukannya menuduh atau mencari bukti untuk dikaitkan dengan mana-mana parti politik.
Perlu diingatkan kerajaan melayu nusantara dahulu dijatuhkan oleh Portugis disebabkan perpecahan yang berlaku dikalangan melayu sendiri. Jadi kita harus berhati-hati dalam kes Lahad Datu sekarang ini. Perlu lebih sepakat. Mereka menggunakan orang seagama Islam. Semoga umat Islam dilindungi. Terjemahan Maxwell Gibson; b. Ada 2 perkara di sini: a.
Jika Filipina tidak akan menang, saya tidak fikir mereka akan membuat tuntutan. Kesemua 9 waris Sultan Sulu yang dinyatakan di dalam penghakiman Macaskie telahpun meninggal dunia. Pada tahun , The Star melaporkan waris kepada 9 waris ini waris kepada waris menggugurkan tuntutan ke atas Sabah. Di petik dari Inquirer Philipines: baik baca dan sampaikan. Five days later, Senator Jovito R. We leave it to our readers to judge the merits of the case as presented by the senators 50 years ago.
Excerpts from the speech of Salonga are also reprinted in the Philippine Daily Inquirer in its March 5, issue in a bid to shed light on the Sabah conflict. My first reaction was to keep my peace and observe this shocking spectacle in silence, particularly in the light of the request of the British panel during the London Conference that the documents and the records of the proceedings be considered confidential, until they could be declassified in the normal course of diplomatic procedure.
The good Senator, whose patriotism I do not propose to impugn, has had access to the confidential records and documents of the Department of Foreign Affairs. By his own admission, he attended closed-door hearings of the Senate Committees on Foreign Relations and National Defense, where crucial matters of national survival and security were taken up. He knows the classified, confidential nature of the records and documents bearing on the Philippine claim. He has chosen to assault the Philippine position at a time when his own Government, by virtue of the British request, may be said to be somewhat helpless in making, right in our own country, an adequate, fully-documented defense of the Philippine stand.
I trust our British friends, here and across the seas, will understand if, in defense of our position, we come pretty close to the area of danger. It is, of course, not the fault of the Senator that the British, in an admirable show of unity, enjoyed and were immensely fascinated by his press releases and statements. Thousands of years ago, what is now known as the Philippines and what is known today as Borneo used to constitute a single historical, cultural, economic unit.
Authoritative Western scientists have traced the land bridges that connected these two places.
Malaysians shocked by police mutilations in Sabah | Astro Awani
The inhabitants of the Philippines and Borneo come from the same racial stock, they have the same color, they have or used to have similar customs and traditions. Borneo is only 18 miles away from us today. North Borneo, formerly known as Sabah, was originally ruled by the Sultan of Brunei. In , in gratitude for help extended to him by the Sultan of Sulu in suppressing a revolt, the Sultan of Brunei ceded North Borneo to the Sulu Sultan.
Here, our claim really begins. Over the years, the various European countries, including Britain, Spain and the Netherlands acknowledged the Sultan of Sulu as the sovereign ruler of North Borneo. They entered into various treaty arrangements with him. This Company was awarded a Royal Charter in The Crown, on July 10, — just six days after Philippine independence — asserted full sovereign rights over North Borneo, as of that date.
In , Congressman Macapagal — along with Congressmen Arsenio Lacson and Arturo Tolentino — sponsored a resolution urging the formal institution of the claim to North Borneo. Prolonged studies were in the meanwhile undertaken and in the House of Representatives, in rare unanimity, passed a resolution urging the President of the Philippines to recover North Borneo consistent with international law and procedure. Acting on this unanimous resolution and having acquired all the rights and interests of the Sultanate of Sulu, the Republic of the Philippines, through the President, filed the claim to North Borneo.
Our claim is mainly based on the following propositions: that Overbeck and Dent, not being sovereign entities nor representing sovereign entities, could not and did not acquire dominion and sovereignty over North Borneo; that on the basis of authoritative British and Spanish documents, the British North Borneo Company, a private trading concern to whom Dent transferred his rights, did not and could not acquire dominion and sovereignty over North Borneo; that their rights were as those indicated in the basic contract, namely, that of a lessee and a mere delegate; that in accordance with established precedents in International Law, the assertion of sovereign rights by the British Crown in , in complete disregard of the contract of and their solemn commitments, did not and cannot produce legal results in the form of a new tide.
I shall not, for the moment, take issue with the Senator as to his statement of the problem sought to be solved either through the Malaysia plan or the Greater Malayan Confederation. Our commitments under the United Nations Charter, the Bandung Conference Declaration and the decolonization resolution of the General Assembly are matters of record and there is no quarrel about them. There is something misleading in this naked assertion. The good Senator could have informed the people, having proclaimed knowledge of all the relevant facts, that the British Crown never considered North Borneo as British territory, nor the North Borneans as British subjects, until July 10, — six days after the Philippines became independent.
Be it noted that the Philippine claim includes sovereignty and dominion over North Borneo. The Senator cannot therefore blame us, since he has invited and provoked the inquiry, if we now file a bill of particulars. Did he really support the proprietary aspect of the claim since he first became a member of the House of Representatives and assumed the Chairmanship of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs?
Probably he did not give much thought to it then. But certainly he must have heard of the Macapagal-Lacson-Tolentino resolution of Did he give it in the Senate active and real support, even in its proprietary aspects? He has been a member of that distinguished body for more than 12 years — when, how and in what form, even through a proposed amendment so as to fit his thinking did he give that support? The cold, lifeless records of Congress yield no evidence of what he now eloquently professes. The distinguished Senator makes a most interesting suggestion. They do not constitute a State, as that term is understood in law.
And were we to follow the logic of the good Senator, we might conclude that America, Britain, France, the Netherlands and other countries have no more prestige and honor to keep since they have, as a matter of cold fact, lost quite a number of cases before international bodies and tribunals. But, of course, the conclusion is wrong. For respect for the rule of law has never meant and should never mean loss of honor and prestige. However, the scope of our claim is clear: we are claiming these portions of North Borneo which were leased, as clearly defined and described in the contract of and which are still under the de facto control and administration of the British Crown.
International law, it may be well to remind our good Senator, does not require exact, rigid definition of a territory by metes and bounds. Up to now, ancient nations, such as India and China, are still quarreling about their boundaries. Malaysia Sabahan local villagers   . Zin Musa Aman. Malaysian Armed Forces. Royal Malaysia Police. All statistics reference :    . The Lahad Datu standoff also known as the Lahad Datu incursion was a military conflict that started on 11 February and fully ended on 24 March Kiram III stated that their objective was to assert the unresolved territorial claim of the Philippines to eastern Sabah the former North Borneo.
The rest of the militants were either captured, or escaped back to the Philippines. The Philippines retains a dormant territorial claim to eastern Sabah, formerly known as North Borneo , through the heritage of the Sultanate of Sulu. In line with International Court of Justice court decision in the case concerning sovereignty of Pulau Ligitan and Pulau Sipadan in ,  Malaysia views that Sultan of Sulu indisputably relinquished the sovereign rights of all its possession in favour of Spain on 22 July , hence losing any title to its claim of Sabah. It is acknowledged that a request for payment to the defunct-Sultanate of Sulu was revived by the Philippine government during a meeting of Maphilindo in Malaysia considers the amount an annual cession payment for the disputed state, while the sultan's descendants consider it as a "rent" payment.
Another factor behind the standoff is the unresolved status of the Sultanate of Sulu. However, his status as sultan is disputed by several other claimants. In response, Jamalul Kiram III, claiming to be the legitimate heir to the throne of Sulu, decreed on 11 November that a civilian and military contingent should assert his territorial rights in North Borneo.
He appointed his brother and Raja Muda "heir apparent" or "crown prince" , Agbimuddin Kiram, to lead the group. Malaysian police blockaded roads leading from Lahad Datu to the remote village of Tanduo, where the armed group was encircled. Malaysian police patrol boats also patrolled nearby waters. At the same time, Filipino security agencies blocked off entry from southern Philippines. On 26 February , President Aquino appealed to Kiram III to recall his followers and to hold discussions with the government to address his family's concerns.
Addressing Kiram III, he said, "It must be clear to you that this small group of people will not succeed in addressing your grievances, and that there is no way that force can achieve your aims". The president said that he had ordered an investigation into possible violations of laws by Kiram III, his followers and collaborators, citing the Constitution's provision on renouncing war as an instrument of national policy and Article of the Revised Penal Code , which punishes those who "provoke or give occasion for a war Aquino also declined to confirm reports of other parties being allegedly behind the standoff to sabotage the Bangsamoro peace process.
In a statement, he said:. This standoff has reached a critical point where the Philippine government must now act decisively and do what is necessary to protect the general interest of the Filipino people. Kiram is essentially declaring war on Malaysia. He must understand that it has never been a policy of the Philippines to take on other countries by force. Regardless of Sulu's rightful claim to Sabah, an armed invasion will unlikely lead to an amicable resolution.
This has come at a time when we are so close to achieving lasting peace with our brothers from the South. Malaysia has played a crucial role in brokering talks between the Philippine government and our Muslim brothers in Mindanao. We cannot afford to have a wedge between our country and Malaysia because of one person's whim.
Kiram III remained defiant, despite a warning of arrest, and said his men would not go back home "until an arrangement has been done by our officials and the president, and if that will be arranged accordingly with a written agreement signed by the parties concerned". He shared that in his last conversation with Agbimuddin over the phone, his brother told him that their followers were firm in their decision to stay in Sabah even though they have little access to food as a result of the food blockade ordered by the Malaysian government. He said he cannot understand what his violation against the Constitution is, saying he has always respected it and that "coming home to their homeland" is not a crime.
Kiram III also asked Malaysia to "sit down in a square table and to diplomatically settle the issue on the claim" stressing the need to "come up with a win-win solution". He reiterated that he and his men "will not initiate the violence But are prepared to defend our lives and aspirations" and that the Sabah issue "can be peacefully settled without threat, but in a diplomatic way".
She added that they would not leave unless they are given a "concrete solution". She also expressed disappointment at the apparent lack of support from the Philippine government, adding that Manila needs to balance diplomatic relations and the interests of its constituents. Malaysian Deputy Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar advised the public not to be worried, and assured that the standoff would be resolved as soon as possible. He added that the incident was being handled as a national security issue. He also declined to comment on whether there are ongoing negotiations with the group of Kiram III.
It was clarified that Del Rosario agreed that those responsible for the killing of Malaysian police forces committed "terroristic acts". According to Abraham Idjirani, Kiram's spokesperson, 10 members of their army were killed with four more injured as a result of the skirmish. The owner of the house where Agbimuddin Kiram and his men had stayed was also killed in the exchange of gunfire.
Initial reports from the Malaysian embassy in the Philippines had stated that there were no fatalities in the shooting. He added that members of Kiram's group had escaped and ran towards the sea. He said a pursuit for them ensued. He also denied that their forces fled to the sea after their clash with the police. He said "the standoff is not over, unless there's a concrete understanding or agreement that can be reached" between the sultanate and the governments of Malaysia and the Philippines. Idjirani claimed that Malaysian officials wanted "to cover up the truth" when they claimed that no one was hurt in the incident.
He also appealed to the Malaysian government to stop the attack, saying Kiram's men were primarily armed only with bolos and knives and only a few had guns. He added that the sultanate is now looking at the possibility of elevating the matter to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and the United Nations Human Rights Commission.
Sabah Police Commissioner Hamza Taib meanwhile said no one from Kiram's followers surrendered to Malaysian authorities. He added that 12 men from Kiram's group were killed when they tried to break out of the security cordon imposed by Malaysian security forces. Hamza claimed that the Filipinos opened fire at the Malaysian police before they were forced to retaliate in self-defence, resulting in a gun battle.
He said they found various weapons, including M16 rifles , pistols and SLR rifles and ammunition from the group. Hamza also denied reports from a foreign news agency that the gunmen had given themselves up and escaped to the sea. He said Agbimuddin's group were still in Tanduo and that the security cordon was being maintained because Malaysia wants the occupation to be resolved peacefully. The Sabah police commissioner, in a separate statement, said that 12 of Kiram's followers died.
He said that three of these men were in military fatigues similar to those being worn by the sultanate's forces. The Bukit Aman special branch superintendent and four operatives killed in the action. The superintendent had led three dozen policemen, from the Semporna District Police Headquarters, after having been ordered to carry out an investigation at the village following a tip-off that there was a group of armed men at Kampung Sri Jaya Siminul in Semporna District. About three hours into the operation, the police officers were fired upon while heading towards a house in the village and returned fire.
The superintendent was reportedly the first to be hit and killed during the ambush. During the ambush, two armed gunmen were also killed. Another imam was allegedly shot when Malaysian authorities learned that they were taking care of the sultan's relatives in the area, Alianapia and Amir Bahar. During the shootout, a total of 23 police officers were pronounced missing.
While captive, four policemen were tortured and had their bodies mutilated, with one beheaded, according to Malaysian authorities, who later found the bodies. Six of the attackers were fatally shot while ambushing Malaysian police while another was beaten to death by villagers after he tried to take a hostage, says Sabah's head of police. The search for these men was carried out by the joint Malaysian police and army taskforce in the surrounding farmland and FELDA plantations.
On 9 March , Malaysian Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said that "Ops Daulat", which aimed to flush out the Sulu gunmen, would end only when no intruders were left in Sabah, because the gunmen had not laid down their arms unconditionally. Tanduo village was declared secured by Malaysian security forces on 11 March after a week of bombardments and firefights, with the bodies of 22 Sulu gunmen recovered by security forces from the village as the fighting ended.
Meanwhile, the security forces engaged in the final stages of sweeping a neighbouring village in which a firefight left a Malaysian army soldier dead. Private Ahmad Hurairah Ismail was killed along with three Sulu gunmen.
The soldier was believed to be part of an army logistics convoy. The website was restored at around noon the same day. In apparent retaliation, hackers identifying themselves as from Anonymous Philippines , attacked several Malaysian websites. They warned Malaysia to "Stop attacking our cyber space! Or else we will attack your cyber world!
Sabah is owned by the Philippines, you illegally [ sic ] claiming it". On 4 March , a Google search for the word "Sabah" reflected a cached version of the territory's Wikipedia article. It said the Malaysian control of the state is "illegitimate" and that "in fact, [Sabah] is part of the Sultanate of Sulu". A spokesman for Google Malaysia said they have already been informed of the issue. Some 20 Filipinos organised a protest in front of the Malaysian embassy in Makati on 5 March They called for an end to the violence in Sabah, while some expressed support for the cause of Kiram.
At least 50 policemen and a fire truck were deployed in the area. The Malaysian embassy later suspended its operations as a result of the protest. Malaysian Prime Minister, Najib Razak , sought to investigate the opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim , if he was involved in the incident to destabilise the state, which is known to be the ruling party's stronghold for the upcoming 13th general election. This began after Filipino media reported that Mr. Anwar may be involved with the incursion and the evidence of an image showing the opposition leader with Nur Misuari of MNLF began circulating on the internet.
On the eve of its general election , Filipino senatorial candidates from the opposition blamed president Benigno Aquino III for sending unclear messages to the Kiram family. An online debate ensued on whether the move highlighted such patriotism of a Malaysian-based airline or the lack of resources of the military. Some Malaysians wondered why the government requested help from a commercial airline, instead of mobilising its own fleet of C Hercules transport planes.
Others lauded AirAsia for its efforts in assisting the armed forces. The Malaysian defence minister, Zahid Hamidi, pointed out that each of the RMAF C Hercules transport aircraft are only capable of carrying up to 90 soldiers each, while airliners of AirAsia are capable of transporting up to soldiers each. The Malaysian Defence Ministry, reiterated by various netizens, also pointed out the fact that chartering civilian jetliners are also a common practice in other countries,  including those of NATO. The event, called Ops Bunga Operation Flower , encouraged participants to place flowers at the embassy's doorstep as a show of the Malaysian public's solidarity towards Filipinos in Malaysia.
Organisers also urged people to offer prayers to the Malaysian security officers who died in the conflict. Participants used the Twitter hashtag OpsBunga during the event. On 10 March , reports arose of police brutality committed by Malaysian police officials as part of a crackdown on suspected Kiram III supporters, causing a mass migration of Filipinos from Sabah to Sulu. Also, it was stated that those detained were not given proper treatment  The DFA has yet to receive a formal statement from the Malaysian government. These included several family members of Kiram III who had entered the state of Sabah using assumed identities.
The prosecution successfully argued that Hassan's intention not to inform his superiors resulted in casualties and fatalities on the Malaysian side. In during the ensuing conflict, the Malaysian authorities has announced that those killed militants will be buried in the state if their bodies are not claimed by their relatives in the Philippines based on humanitarian grounds of Geneva Conventions. On 13 January , Agbimuddin Kiram - who led the group to invade Sabah under the instruction of the late Jamalul Kiram III - died of cardiac arrest in Tawi-Tawi where he had been in hiding since fleeing from Malaysian security forces.
On 6 January , 30 individuals 27 Filipinos and three Malaysians were brought to trial where they were charged with waging war against the King, harbouring terrorists, being members of a terrorist group, and the recruiting of terrorists. On 5 February , 19 of the 30 peoples were ordered to enter their defence in the High Court of Kota Kinabalu. Justice Stephen Chung made the ruling after finding that the prosecution had succeeded in establishing a prima facie case against 19 of the accused: 16 Filipinos including a woman and three local men.
The sole Filipina Norhaida Ibnahi was also ordered to enter her defence for allegedly willfully harbouring individuals she knew to be members of a terrorist group. The new charge was made after Justice Chung found the prosecution had shown evidence that they had solicited or given support to a terrorist group, an offence punishable with life imprisonment or a fine. Another Malaysian named Pabblo Alie was charged with soliciting support for a terrorist group, an offence punishable with up to 30 years imprisonment and a fine if found guilty.
On 23 February , six of the Filipinos pleaded guilty to being members of the terrorist group involved in the intrusion. It was reported that the accused had been ill throughout the trial. On 25 July , the court convicted that nine Filipino militants who leading the intrusion may facing death penalty. On 8 June , following the appeal by prosecutors to replace nine of the convicted life imprisonment sentence for waging war against the King, the Malaysian Court of Appeal made a decision to sentenced the nine to death for their involvement in the incursion.
Such a ruthless attack by foreign enemies was unprecedented in Malaysia. For the reasons, we allow the appeal and set aside the sentence imposed by the High Court against the respondents and substitute it with the death penalty against each of the respondents. Thousands of Filipinos who had illegally resided in Malaysia , some for decades, were deported following the conflict and ensuing security-related crackdown. Some of these were forced to leave behind family members. They also became a possible target for retaliation, especially from the local Bornean tribes, because the Malaysian police officers were mainly indigenous Borneans.
On 22 April , a year-old man in Lahad Datu who claimed to have been given the power to manage the Suluk people in Sabah was arrested for raising the Sulu Sultanate flag on his home. On 30 October , two men identified as the members of the Sulu militants were shot dead by police in Penampang. Both suspects, have committed robberies to raise funds for their activities and tried to recruit new members to join their fight.

On 6 May , Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Shahidan Kassim said some locals together with the Filipino illegal immigrants have provide information to intruders during the invasion of Lahad Datu and other abduction incidents. In his quotation, he said:. Many locals in the east coast of Sabah originated from the Philippines and, therefore, had family or economic ties with their counterparts there.
As a counter-measure, we will try to instill in their mindset that this is our country where we make our living together, where our children are studying and where their future lies, adding that the effort to defend the country was a collective effort. The attack by Kiram's III in have since affected trade relations especially to the Philippines side of Tawi-Tawi where most of their goods source came from Sabah. On 9 November , the allegation of political motives towards one of the Malaysian opposition parties behind the incursion was strengthened when the daughter of de facto leader of the Malaysian People's Justice Party PKR Nurul Izzah Anwar was seen taking selfie with Jacel Kiram by holding a poster " Release Anwar immediately" as been seen from Jacel Facebook account.
As an MP [Member of parliament] in Malaysia, if she was caring for Malaysians and Sabah residents, we would welcome it. But if there is "something deeper" in the meeting, we want her to explain and it should be brought to Parliament. The Malaysian government has since been referring Izzah to the Parliament to investigate if there is any "hidden agenda" to undermine national sovereignty in the form of deal between them.
On 18 April , Izzah won the case and both are being ordered to pay Izzah a total of RM1 million for all the damages made towards her reputation. The weapons are believed to have been buried by surviving militants before they fled across the sea back to the Philippines. The award was bestowed on 24 teams involved in the operation for their sincerity, efficiency and perseverance when facing tough challenges.
