The statement was delivered by Princess Jacel Kiram at a 2 pm press conference at the house of Sultan Jamalul Kiram
Now as the battle rages under a tremendous and superior force by the Malaysian composite forces of air force and naval bombardment including army and police force, all we could do is to ask the Almighty Allah to protect our people in Lahad Datu, Semporna, Kunak, Sandakan and all over the island of Sabah. Raja Muda Agbimuddin Kiram encourage by his aspiration together with the 214 members of the Royal Security Force to reclaim and settle peacefully in our homeland. The Royal Force, the Crown Prince, and the many patriots who landed voluntarily will fight to the last man protecting their ideals and aspirations.
It is quite suspicious that this came after PNOY delivered his message yesterday at 4PM. The tactical statements of PNOY and the Malaysian statement are full of hypothetical statements and analogies, which are setting a predicate for the people to be confused and divert their attention on the real issue on how our government mishandled the crisis showing their insensitive attitude to the Sultanate of Sulu and the Muslim sentiments as if we are not Filipinos.
Question, is it now clear that the government of PNOY has now given up and now pursues where to put the blame on the basis of imaginary conspiracies. Mr. President, wala pong nagsusulsol, at wala pong foreign interests na nakikialam sa ginawa po ng Sultanate of Sulu.
Mr. President, hanggang nanindigan si Sultan Jamalul Kiram III at si Raja Muda Agbimuddin sa kanilang na ipagtanggol ang kanilang karapatan sa North Borneo Sabah please,please do not disrespect the integrity of their intentions.
Mr. President, you cannot wash your hands by turning your back on your own people. Hindi na nga kayo nakatulong, ipakukulong pa ninyo ang mga nagsakripisyo ng buhay para sa kanilang karapatan para makuha ang kanilang pag aari at patrimonya ng bansang Pilipinas. LET THE PEOPLE AND THE NATION JUDGE YOU FOR THIS ACT.
Mr. President, you must abide by the constitution to protect your people and fight for the nation’s territorial rights. We challenge you to swear in front of the 98 million Filipinos so that the countless members of the Sultanate of Sulu and the patriotic volunteers will not sacrifice their lives in vain. We want to remind you Mr. President that the Sultanate of Sulu exercises sovereignty for over 400 years before the Philippines was colonized in 1521. Isumpa mo iyan sa mga 98 MILLION FILIPINOS NA BOSS MO, magpakatotoo ka sa iyong sinabi na “KAYO ANG BOSS KO”. Sana maramdaman namin sa kilos at gawa.
We are asking all the Filipino people now to pray for the safety of our Muslim brothers both in Malaysia and in the Philippines and to a peaceful resolution of the Sabah issue. Inshaallah
