All about the genuine Sabah Claim Society

ATTENTION! This blog is the genuine Sabah Claim Society.

We are Philippine patriots who have grouped together from around the world and who created the Sabah Claim Society group originally on Facebook on 15 July 2011 and counted close to 6,000 members.

But on 5 October 2011 our group on Facebook was traitorously hijacked by two people we had invited to join us as group admins but who, we learned later on, had been hired to sabotage our patriotic group by a group of sinister individuals sporting fake European sounding nobility titles and other spurious Tausug/Sulu titles ['bestowed' and indiscriminately distributed on Facebook] and organized by a combined team of charlatans namely a datu (sporting a fake sultan title) and the latter's handler who is conveniently sporting an absolutely fake 'princely' title as well.

Please be warned that the said group of individuals, we believe, are in fact con artists out to "claim" Sabah for "get rich quick" reasons and are not genuine Philippine patriots. Their motive, we have discovered, is to be able to convince Malaysians that they are genuine Sulu royalty and pro-Philippine Sabah claim supporters in order to extract from Malaysia (which has control of Sabah today) a premium for letting go of the Sabah claim.

Bangsamoro pact abolishes ARMM; MILF gets substate status, with 58 ‘exclusive powers

Bangsamoro pact abolishes ARMM; MILF gets substate status, with 58 ‘exclusive powers

On its face, even as President Aquino hailed the power sharing deal with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, the peace pact with the MILF may turn out to be unconstitutional, as the power sharing annex not only provides the Moro rebel group with 58 “exclusive powers” but also abolishes the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, even as the Constitution has not been amended.
Aquino’s peace deal with the MILF also establishes a full parliamentary system of government for the Bangsamoro government, where a Cabinet government is formed, and with the Chief Minister, or prime minister in a parliamentary system elected by the Islamic parliament, and where the chief minister then selects his deputy minister and other members who are also members of the parliament of his Cabinet government.
A no confidence vote can oust the chief minister by a two thirds vote, which is also a feature of any parliamentary government. The country is under a president system, not a parliamentary one. The peace pact appears to be no different from the Memorandum of Agreement on Ancestral Domain (MoA-AD) entered into between the Arroyo government and the MILF, which was already declared unconstitutional by the high court.
The ministerial Bangsamoro government has been granted by the Aquino peace panel at least 58 exclusive powers including the power over ancestral domain and natural resources within its jurisdiction.
Among the exclusive powers granted to the MILF ate the Barter trade and countertrade with Asean countries; the establishment of government-owned and controlled corporations and financial institutions; its own Islamic banking and financing system; power over ancestral domains and natural resources; land management, land distribution, and agricultural land use reclassification; expropriation and eminent domain; the customary justice system which includes the establishment of the Shariah court system ; the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) that shall jointly promote the development of the Islamic banking system, to include among others the establishment of a Shari’ah supervisory board; receive grants and donations; power over inland waterways for navigation; inland waters; public works and highways within the Bangsamoro under its powers and establishment or creation of other institutions, policies and laws for the general welfare of the people in the Bangsamoro.
The power sharing annex had been considered highly contentious, with MILF rebels seeking greater authority over a proposed autonomous region in the south which will cover Muslim-dominated regions of this mainly-Catholic archipelago of 100 million.
The accord, signed by negotiators from the government and MILF representatives in Kuala Lumpur, is seen by the Palace and the MILF as yet another step toward finally ending the bloody insurgency in the southern Philippines.
A joint statement said both sides were now “confident” that they could soon sign the last remaining annex on normalization and complete the comprehensive peace agreement by January 2014.
The newly-signed power sharing annex had been one of four preliminary accords that had to be completed before a final peace deal could be signed.
