Musa spills the beans on Yong: He said one thing but did another

SAPP's Yong
SANDAKAN - Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman has described Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) president Datuk Yong Teck Lee as a desperate and irresponsible leader "who says one thing but did just the opposite".

"He is a dangerous and an irresponsible leader who says one thing now but when he was in power, he did just the opposite. It is a desperate attempt to grab power.

"This kind of leader cannot be trusted, whether as an MP or state assemblyman, let alone as he describes himself - a chief minister-in-waiting," he said at a meet-the-people session in Kg Bakau, near here, tonight while campaigning for Datuk Linda Tsen, the Barisan Nasional candidate for the Batu Sapi by-election.

Musa said Yong even tried to provoke friction between two nations, in order to achieve his selfish agenda.

"Since he joined politics, he had pitted one person (be it friend or enemy) against another. Today, he tries to provoke friction between Malaysia and Brunei by again raising the issue of 'Block L and M', which in fact is a non-issue."

Musa said Block L and M (offshore area between Labuan and Miri in Sarawak) had been adequately explained by the government since day one when the issue was first raised.

"There is nothing to hide and there is nothing sinister in this issue. These areas rightfully belong to Brunei.

"If at all there was even the slightest suggestion that Block L and M is part of Sabah's territorial waters, the government would ensure it remains ours as what it did over the Sipidan and Ligitan issue," he said.

Musa said sometimes it was difficult to explain to the people complex matters and issues, but Yong was only "fishing in murky waters", hoping to play on the naivety of the people to make it look as if the government of the day was in the wrong.

"At the last parliament sitting in June, this matter was again adequately addressed by Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman," he said.

Citing the interpretation of the law by some well-known maritime experts based on UNCLOS (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea) 1982, Anifah was quoted as saying that the two oil blocks clearly belonged to Brunei, and Wisma Putra had also sought legal advice on the matter and established that the two blocks indeed belonged to Brunei. - BERNAMA
