SUPP demolishes DAP’s intention to table motion on PDA

Published on  |  Modified on

SUPP youth central chairperson Michael Tiang today said that Bandar Kuching MP Chong Chieng Jen’s intention to table a motion in Parliament to amend the Petroleum Development Act 1974 (PDA) may turn out to be a paradox.

“Chong’s intended motion will, in fact, be tantamount to recognising the PDA and its legal standing in Sarawak,” he told Malaysiakini when contacted.

An exasperated Tiang asked how long would it take for DAP to understand that Sarawak, in fact, already owned all the petroleum resources, both onshore and offshore as stipulated under Sarawak (Alteration of Boundaries) Order 1954 by the Queen in Council.
