If CM was not consulted, it’s shocking move: Yap

Secara Rawak

KUCHING: Wilfred Yap calls it “shocking” if the transfer of the principal registry of the High Court to Sabah was done without consulting Sarawak Chief Minister.

The Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) public complaints bureau chief cum Kota Sentosa Branch chairman said, “It is shocking to see yet another of Sarawak’s constitutional rights robbed off us if our Chief Minister (Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg) had not been consulted.”

Yap, a lawyer by profession, said the move would be wrong in law and should be set aside in the event the Sarawak Chief Minister was not consulted and had not given his consent.

“The Sarawak government should immediately take steps to seek a court declaration that the said transfer is defective as it was in contravention of Article 121(4) Federal Constitution,” he told New Sarawak Tribune when contacted yesterday.

“If there was a contravention of Article 121(4) of the Federal Constitution, the transfer of the principal registry of the High Court of Sabah & Sarawak would be unconstitutional,” he added.
