The next move to claim Sabah from the illegal occupation of Malaysia should come from a local native who is a citizen of the Philippines. A sovereign government like the Philippines can help a Filipino citizen elevate the claim to the proper International Court of Justice. This is kind of a unique case involving a private person claiming a piece of property and have evidence to present like a annual rental receipts.

The Malaysian government recognizes that Sabah belongs to the heirs of Sulu Sultanate as evidenced by their paying annual rent of approximately $ 1500.00 dollars.

This is a very delicate situation on the part of the Philippines where Sabah is part of Malaysia as mandated by the U.N. when she became independent. The Philippines had to balance her relationship with Malaysia for the later is a member of the ASEAN bloc. How could PH proceed to her claim without harming her relations with Malaysia? Maybe joint administration will be the only solution to this case but when it comes to revenue it should be in favor of owner, the Sultan of Sulu and Sabah. If that is not acceptable, both sides have to wait and see until a referendum can be safely administered and the people properly informed of the events leading to the inclusion of Sabah in the Federation of Malaysia.

Malaysia have to adjust to the reality that she is illegally occupying Sabah. Even though she is in absolute control of Sabah, Muslim nations all over the world do not tolerate Harams and as such will deal with Malaysia diplomatically and worse might someday pressured by them to eventually return Sabah to the rightful owner.

Malaysia have to right the wrong that was done to the heirs of the Sultanate of Sulu and Sabah.

You must be a Chinese who have self interest in Sabah. The cries of the rightful owner of Sabah should be heard soon. It doesn't matter how Sabah will look like in the next 2,000 years. The owner will use Sabah as it pleases. There's no place in the Muslim world for harams, so your resistance to recover Sabah will go nowhere for as long as Sabah is at the hands of illegal occupier Malaysia.

Sabah is not for sale ever. It's not the money that's important. It's to right the wrong that was done to the heirs of the Sulu Sultanate.

In the 21st century world, you can now use a computer model to plan anything for the good of all. Even to plan a big chunk of land like Sabah, a visionary, whoever that might be, knows where Sabah will become in the future.

i am young filipino and just recently learned about the dispute about sabah and who truly owns&#65279; those lands...its interesting to hear that most sabahans prefer to stay how they are and not be part of the philippines...in that case...even as a filipino...if the majority of people in sabah today do not wish to join philippines..then its better to leave things how they are..if it was the other way around and sabahans wanted to be filipinos..then its game time!

To right the wrong that was done to the Sultanate of Sulu and Sabah has nothing to do on what the Sabahans want. The Sabahans can be an autonomous government, and or independent, free from the illegal occupation of Peninsular Malaysia. Unfair treatment of Peninsular Malaysia on Sabah where only 5 % of revenue stays in Sabah is not right for Sabahans. 90 % of revenue generated in Sabah goes to the peninsula to support politicians and people there. There's no Sultan in Sabah, which means that the Sultan of Sulu and Sabah is the one and only Sultan of Sulu and Sabah. The Sulu Sultan is a native filipino and therefore a filipino owns Sabah.

im Sabahan but i dont want to join Philippines, at least Malaysia takes good care of us, evident from the lack of Sabahan refugees in Philippines or Indonesia, in fact Indonesians and Filipino refugees fled to Sabah for its relaxed but also higher standard of living...Malaysia takes good care of us really, free educations, uniforms and books, 24 hours electricity, highways...we don't care if we're ruled by sultans or not, its not like Sulu is still ruled or owned by a sultan right?

Philippines should show why it is the country for Sabahan and as long as Sabahan people see nothing to benefit from it then Sabah will remain Malaysian

Just right the wrong that was done by Malaysia to the Sultan of Sulu and Sabah, then the Sultan of Sulu and Sabah will leave Sabah alone. Pay the right amount of rent and not just $1500.00 dollars yearly. What a joke.

People will hear the cry of help of the barking dog, you'll see.

There's a Malay proverb, cry loud and you will be heard, keep quite and you'll be ignored, for no one knows what you wanted.

You must be a Chinese who exploits the local Sarawakians and Sabahans. You must be someone who changed your name to a local sounding name to assimilate with the locals. The high cost of living in these two areas are artificial, designed by powerful politicians in the peninsula, so that people will go to the peninsula to find jobs, and in the process leave their properties or worse sell their land to rich people , Chinese corporations or Chinese Chamber of Commerce. This is how Chinese sovereign government do to divide and rule a country. Once people are disunited, rich Chinese whether individuals, corporations or organizations will have easy time to do whatever they want. Chinese gangs will then come in and sow chaos, and the government will end up busy, fixing the mess caused by Chinese long term plans.
