Sultan Sulu coronation in Sabah
But to have a joker by the name of Abjan Ali to install himself in a self-styled coronation in Sabah as Sultan of Sulu is a direct and no joke challenge to Malaysia’s sovereignty over Sabah and an insult to the our Malaysian Sultans and our Sabah Head of State. This so-called “Sultan of Sulu”, complete with a “Prime Minster” of a government-in-exile expect people of Sulu descent to pledge loyalty to him, and not to our Malaysian Agung, our constitution and nation. The security implications are obvious and serious.
In 1995 or 1996, Abjan and several other UMNO operatives were detained under the Internal Security Act for the manufacturing of fake identity cards. I need say no more about this person except that Abjan is an active UMNO member. What is UMNO going to do about him?
If the Malaysian government does nothing to stop such flagrant violation of Malaysia’s sovereignty over Sabah, then Sabahans will being to wonder what it means to be a Malaysian.
