KOTA KINABALU: A module on the historical contents and legal aspects of the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) will be developed to allow the public, especially the younger generation, to understand its importance in the formation of Malaysia.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Sabah and Sarawak Affairs) Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili said the Sabah and Sarawak Affairs Division (BHESS) will collaborate with the Sabah Law Society (SLS) on this matter.
“This module can be standard material for schools and public engagements.
"We want to share with the people, from school children all the way to the elderly, to understand MA63, its history and contents, its inter-linkages, interpretations, and legal aspects.
“And we believe who better to do this with than some 800 law experts from SLS, our very own powerhouse of intellectuals, ” he said after receiving a courtesy call from the society led by their president, Roger Chin, at the BHESS office here on Tuesday (May 11).
“During our meeting, we realised the importance of getting the right foundation is crucial so the young people, especially, will know and understand the real history and content of MA63.
“There have been a lot of interpretations on MA63 out there, and we hope this module will set the record right, ” he said.
