Malaysia Agreement enforceable in court of law
President Datuk Seri Panglima Yong Teck Lee said that among others, the clear breach of agreement was on the Borneonisation of the federal public service in Sabah in pursuant to the Malaysia Agreement that was signed in London on 9 July, 1963.
He said SAPP's legal team had studied the matter for quite a long time and after researching the speeches of leaders from all parties and relevant documents, especially the agreement's contents itself they opined that the Malaysia Agreement was enforceable in the court of law.
"The promise of Borneonisation of the public service is very well documented in the many memoranda submitted by the leaders of North Borneo and Sarawak, in the Memorandum of the Malaysia Solidarity Consultative Committee, the Cobbold Report, the Inter-Governmental Report.
