Soo Li Ching expresses her unhappiness with Federal government
Political Secretary to the Honourable Chief Minister of Sarawak Soo Li Ching express her disappointment and frustration towards the decision of the Federal Government for the relocation of the Registry of headquarters of the High Court from Kuching to Kota Kinabalu without consulting the Chief Minister of Sarawak. It has violated Sarawak’s right and disregard the importance of Sarawak and also show no respect to Sarawak.
Soo had issued her statement today and express her support on the act of the Assemblyman of Piasau YB Datuk Sebastian Ting to bring the matter to Kuching High Court, to challenge the legality on the decision of the relocation of the Registry Headquarters of the High Court from Kuching to Kota Kinabalu. The reason is that under the Article 121(4) of the Federal Constitution, in order to determine where the principal registry of the High Court in Sabah and Sarawak is to be, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall act on the advice of the Prime Minister, however, it is to be emphasised that in this Article, it was also clearly stated that the Chief Minister of Sabah and Sarawak shall be consulted as well.
However, the Chief Minister of Sarawak had stated that he has not been acknowledged and consulted in this matter.
Soo further stated that although a notice had been issued on 23rd April 2019 from the Office of the Chief Registrar, Federal Court of Malaysia，that the relocation will not be implemented on 1st May 2019, that does not conceal the mistake made by the Federal Government in this matter. Especially Datuk Liew Vui Keong is the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Law), there are no reason why he did not take into account of the specific rights given to Sabah and Sarawak under the Article 121(4) of the Federal Constitution.
Soo doubted，if this is a matter stipulated in the Federal Constitution，as the Federal Government, they failed to act according to the Constitution, will the rights and interests of the people, especially the rights and interets of the Sarawakians face the same problems?
“I also feel disappointed and frustrated with the decision of Datuk Liew Vui Keong for treated such matter involving Judicial Department a trifling matter. When the decision of relocation was made, only short notice was given and when doubted and attracted criticisms from the people, immediately notice was issued to announce the decision that the relocation will not be implemented on 1st May 2019.”
Soo also stated that the sincerity in protecting Sarawak by the Sarawak Pakatan Harapan, especially DAP is highly doubted. They are very busy in organising talks, trying to explain and beautify their failure in their role for the constitution bill amendment, blaming and pointing fingers on GPS, telling the people that they (DAP) are trying hard to safeguard the interests and rights of the Sarawakians. However, in this relocation matter, which is clearly shown that the Federal has no respect to Sarawak, and clear-cut case of violation of the Federal Constitution on Sarawak’s rights, they did not stand up immediately against it. They only came about to claim to be same standing with the Sarawak Goverment when the GPS had taken aggressive move and stand up firm against the decision. Isn’t all should put doubt on Sarawak PH when they say they also the one who will safeguard Sarawak?
